Avery Perfumes Makes Shopping for Fragrance a Pleasure, Not a Scent-Bomb
For those of us obsessed with signature scents, our ultimate fragrance should be one that few others possess. While I adore Marc Jacobs (the original), I'd prefer to wear something on a daily basis that's a bit more unique to me. A long-time contender has been Histoires de Parfums 1969, but after a visit to Avery London's outpost in New York's new Limelight Marketplace, I've got a slew of new options. Avery, which opened in central London in May, is the first retail store from Intertrade Europe, a company that deals in niche perfumes, as well as slightly bigger brands like Miller Harris and Bond No. 9. I'd heard of some of the scents previously--particularly the Nasomatto series, distinguished by its carved wood toppers--but I had smelled only a few. So last week I popped by Limelight to get an idea of what Avery has on offer.
