Perfume Walk in Mayfair – PRIVATE EVENT

**A time trip through history of English perfume houses and their famous clients, from heritage colognes to modern niche perfumery.**

## About this event

Dear all,

the walk on 17 May has been booked as a private event.


We are delighted to invite you to the most fragrant walk in London.

If you’re a perfume lover, then we know you’re going to love a historical Perfume Walk through London’s vibrant, heritage-rich Mayfair…

Perfume Walks are going to be sauntering through the world of scent, taking in the sights and smells of London’s historic and modern fragrance houses.

The perfume walk is an invite to have a glimpse of London history through perfumes, their creators and people who wore them. The tour takes about three hours during which we will visit heritage perfume shops and find out the exciting history of old brands like **Floris**, **Atkinson’s, Penhaligon’s, Grossmith**, and **Santa Maria Novella**, as well as the new players like **Ormonde Jayne** and **Roja Dove** who are creating history of English perfumery in front of our eyes.

Floris offers an opportunity for a real time travel. The shop has been occupying the same premises for 293 years and is still run by the same family. Among his clients there are royals, famous people, actors and even literary characters. The visit to Floris also gives a chance to discuss what a unisex fragrance mean.

Atkinsons, meanwhile, is a real phoenix of the perfume industry connected to the king of English fashion **Beau Brummell** as well as **Queen Victoria** and **Sarah Bernard**. We will also be walking on the street once famous for Turkish baths where **William Penhaligon** created his first fragrance. And the tour will finish in the mecca of modern perfumery, **Jovoy Mayfair,** where we will discover latest trends in perfumery, secrets of main perfume ingredients and discuss pros and cons of naturals and synthetics.’

Our partners prepared treats and gifts for all our guests. EVERY GUEST RECEIVES A GOODY BAG.

Please check the weather forecast for London and dress accordingly on the day of the walk.

Tickets are non-refundable, but transferrable to another date.
