The Dubai Mall

Perhaps the prettiest we’ve ever seen, Penhaligon’s fragrances are as luxurious as they are elegant. Considering the brand’s rich heritage (it’s over 135 years old), each bottle tells the story of the scent inside whilst staying true to its Victorian roots. With beautiful bows, intricate labels, and glass-ball stoppers, the packaging is the epitome of romantic beauty.

Buly 1803

From skin-softening ointments to cleansers, balms, creams, and perfumes – Buly 1803 is a brand with “a respect for the past and a curiosity for the present”, hence the cool and quirky packing. Taking you back to the 19th century, these natural lotions and potions are a nod to a bygone era. It’s their delicate details that make them so special, making them more apt for a museum than a modern-day beauty store.
