Jewellery and luxury goods, London
Penhalligans is probably the most respected perfumiers in the world. You can find branches and concessions in such places as Rodeo drive in Beverly hill and in most of the Saks stores in the US.
There are several London Branches, mainly as concessions in the big department store, but also as stand-alone shops in the Burlington Arcade and in Wellington Street, just off Covent Garden to name a couple.
I actually quite like the relaxed atmosphere in the Covent Garden branch, and was also interested to see that they put the framed Royal warrant from the Prince of Wales on the inside wall of the shop.
Nice place, but I'll think I'll stick to to a good scrub behind the ears with carbolic soap twice a week to keep me shipshape, call be old fashioned, but I can't be doing with all this poncy male grooming - it can make you fancy women called 'Camilla'.
What to buy: It's all branded with 'Penhaligon's' on it,
