A bit about the store

Back in 2010 we opened our first The Perfume Shop @ Superdrug stores, which are still going strong today.
The concept - The Perfume Shop @ Superdrug - works well as we are able to get our brand name out there in places that we perhaps previously wouldn’t have been able to. It also opens us to a different kind of customer that shops with Superdrug. Although these stores are owned and managed completely by The Perfume Shop and are not part of the Superdrug store, it is important for our teams to work well with the Superdrug teams.

A little bit about us

We opened our first three retail stores here at The Perfume Shop over 20 years ago in 1992. Since then we have grown to be the largest single category fragrance retailer in the UK.

Our brand has become widely recognised across the UK and Ireland by our ever increasing presence on the high street and online, and we are proud to be owned by the A.S. Watson Group, the world's largest health and beauty retailer. The A.S. Watson Group are also known in the UK for owning Superdrug and Savers.

With year on year objectives of growing our business we are well known for offering great fragrance deals on the high street and being the 'go to' experts for service. This is proved with our top 20 placements in the past few years in the well known Which? High Street Shops Satisfaction Survey.

We are also known for being a great place to work, securing a place in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the UK from 2012 to 2015. This is a great accolade to what our people think about us as a retail employer.
