When I heard that one of my favourite and indulgent brands was opening up their very own boutique in the heart of London, I could barely keep myself from crossing off the dates on my calendar in anticipation. Just opened in Knightsbridge, and in great company with Harvey Nichols and Harrods around the corner, the boutique puts all of their knowledge of aromatherapy between four walls.
"The ground floor of the boutique is the new window for the entire collection of Aromatherapy Associates famed Bath & Shower Oils, body oils, creams, skincare and gifting collections. Set against a background of warm grey tones, mirrored walls and quirky touches (including a chandelier designed on the iconic Bath & Shower Oil bottles), the boutique will provide a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere in which customers can browse, try mini-treatments and generously sample products recommended to them by the team of expert aromatherapists."
It sounds amazing. Not only can you pick up a bottle of your favourite oil while perusing the shelves and breathing in beautiful scents, but you can also experience one of their unique treatments. Choose from the highly acclaimed classics, such as the Age Repair Facial and Essential Rose Facial, or the de-puffing, skin buffing or mood and muscle healing body treatments, including the Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience or Sleep Deeply. Or there’s the new, and exclusive to the boutique, pack-a- punch, ‘City Stress Buster’ Get me there, stat.
