Qatar Duty Free (QDF) has brought a taste of Britain to Hamad International Airport (HIA) this month, with the opening of its artisanal perfume boutique, Penhaligon’s. Travellers searching for an iconic fragrance will be spoilt for choice with Penhaligon's exquisite perfume collections at HIA, the brand’s first boutique ever opened in Qatar.
The brand, which was founded in London in 1870, is perhaps best known for its signature ‘profiling’ service. Developed exclusively by Penhaligon’s, this complimentary service offers customers an expert foray into the world of fine perfumery, tapping into their personal preferences and guiding customers in selecting a fragrance that is best suited for them.
The boutique will showcase a selection of Penhaligons’ most sought after products, including its latest fragrance collection Portraits and its Trade Routes fragrance collection, among other top selling Penhaligon’s fragrances and must-have items. With approximately 15 square meters of retail space and designed by renowned British architects Al-Jawad Pike, the Penhaligon’s boutique at HIA combines elements of the brand’s rich heritage with a sleek and contemporary twist. The store is fully bespoke, with all fixtures intricately hand-crafted, including illuminated floor to ceiling shelving and a signature Georgian-inspired geometric patterned floor, comprised of three different types of stone.
