    Thumbs up Cotswold Perfumery (3:20-min VIDEO) -- RECOMMENDED VIEWING *****

    Nice video showing both the production areas and lovely shop, plus perfumer John Stephen discusses the challenges of working with regulations, animal-use ethics, and allergens.

    Has anyone been?

    This is new to me. I like the stance on no animal testing or products. (I shudder to think whale oil was used in 19th century cosmetics.)

    Thank you for sharing.

    Yes, I went there last December - it's a gorgeous little shop. Feel a bit disappointed that I didn't get to go on their tour but just managing to drag my parents and little sister along to the shop was quite an amazing feat.

    Bought a small bottle of Ruby (smells quite rosy), wandered out and had to run back in for a small bottle of Cymbelline too (warm chypre on me). Thanks for the reminder, these have been a little neglected lately.

    I love that. Thank you, Quarry! What a lovely setting for a perfumery, with the birds singing in the background while you work quietly (not like subbing in a middle school, lol!).

    Been to Bourton on the Water a few times when I was younger, but never to the Perfumery. Will be bugging someone to take me, as I don't drive
