Founded in 1984, we are London's oldest independent perfumery.
Les Senteurs (meaning "the scents") was originally conceived as a shop to escape the crowds of the department stores, allowing you to find your perfume at your own pace. Even now, we are still the proponents of what Beauty & Fragrance Journalist Jo Fairley calls the "slow-scent movement" - intent on helping you discover a fragrance that you love, without rushing you to make a decision.
Our unique Senteursystem groups fragrances by their type and family, allowing you to find another scent based on what you have previously enjoyed. We have many scents to browse, being the home of niche and specialist perfume in London and the UK. Dedicated to the art of perfumery, we seek out the best scents from around the world, and line our shelves with over 350 fragrances created by the best noses in the business. We also team up with people working in other disciplines - for example film, art, and music - to offer you events and competitions.

The History of Les Senteurs
|Three decades ago Betty and Michael Hawksley had a revolutionary idea destined to change the face of British Perfumery. They realised that there was no advice available in the conventional department stores, and only limited choice if you wanted something unusual in fine fragrances and scented goods. So the concept of Les Senteurs was born. Les Senteurs is proud to lay claim to having been the first shop in the UK to stock the complete ranges of the now legendary brands of Annick Goutal, Creed and Diptyque. More recently, Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle, Mona di Orio, Parfumerie Generale and Tauer Perfumes have all chosen to debut their brands at Les Senteurs.
|In 2012, 2013, and 2014, Les Senteurs has been bestowed the Best Perfumery in Basenotes.net Reader Awards. We are very proud to have received this honour, voted for by readers from around the globe.
