The UK's First Interactive Perfumer Launches This Summer 2010.
London needs more specialist perfumers - and at 7th Man we are certainly more attracted to those that are niche and just a little less mass-market. Avery in Mayfair plays cleverly on an avian theme, using the metaphor of a fragrance floating as a bird through the air, along with mind-blowing visual-arts technology to provide an experience that completely transcends the typical nightmare that is often the department store perfumery hall. Here, perfumes are presented in a way that encourages clients to slow down and 'preen' whilst making their selection, while to the rear of the store a lush hanging garden, complete with weeping rabbits and surreal artworks serves to calm customers, all the while reinforcing the message that fragrance and art are intertwined.
The store will carry luxury niche perfumes from an array of international talent including several exclusives from Hype Nose Candles, Profumi del Forte and Morgane Le Fay and of course one of my personal favourites - the Nasomatto line by perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri.
