    Default Heathrow airport

    Are there any niche fragrances for sale ? Anything interesting to keep an eye on? I have not been at that particular airport for a few years now, I will have 5 hours of boredom while I wait for my next flight next week. Maybe at Harrods?
    Thanks!

    Harrods is far better. Greater designer variety, plus most of the niche, and you can always do process VAT refund in-shop. That way you get all you want, but at Duty Free prices.

    Not the Harrods at the airport. I thought you meant Harrods in London.

    I know they sell the Miroir Miroir series in Terminal 5, which is the only place in the country where they are stocked.

    You might check out this link:

    http://www.heathrow-airport-guide.co.uk/shops-t-1.html

    If you scroll down a bit, you will find Shopping Terminal 1,2,3,...etc.
    Terminal 3 seems to have quite a number of interesting shops.

    Only if you are not part of the EU I think. So..no
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
