Interesting place to sample the variety of perfumes and aftershaves available, all made on site. Also an interesting shop to potter around though it suits specific tastes. Wider range of fragrances was expected though those available vary immensely. Worth popping into.

I was so looking forward to my visit, as I adore perfume, but to be honest, it was disappointing. The lady on the counter required an emergency injection of enthusiasm. There was no welcome from her as you entered the store and she was well, just not enthusiastic. I did buy some perfume but I can't imagine sales rocketing through... More

Being able to buy local products is a thing that I love, but the prices here were comparable to the world famous brands, forcing me to buy only a 30ml bottle as a gift. Almost all the perfumes seemed to be quite old fashioned and sweet, but the presentation is nice and the shop worth a stop.

We had been into the shop before and bought some lovely soap. They also sell lovely jewellery for all tastes. The staff are very helpful and pleasant

This shop has been here since I can remember so must easily be 40 years plus. The displays seem to have gone so its really just a shop now with a few scents to try.

The perfumery is Worth a visit even if you do not buy anything. Lovely smells and items reasonably priced. A good selection of choice.

I used to enjoy coming here and looking at the exhibition and gardens. However, now it is just a shop only. Therefore it is not really a tourist attraction any more than the other local shops.

Love shopping at the Perfurmery. The perfumes are wonderful and the jewelry selection is extensive and affordable. I always shop here when we are in Bourton-on-the-Water.
