It’s a far cry from ye olde big brand approach. For starters, no-one will assault you with a flacon of Angel. Instead, there are islands of products, with the cult faves Fornasetti, Diptyque, Penhaligon’s, and Frederic Malle rubbing shoulders with lesser-known brands, many of which are very new. (more…)
