It’s been a busy few weeks. From finding out that I’ve been offered a retail space through Renew Newcastle in the Emporium, Hunter Street Mall, Newcastle to working out how to use the space and of course moving in to the space. There’s been a bit of rearranging and no doubt a little bit more rearranging to come.
The space I’ve been allocated used to be part of the beauty/cosmetic section when the department store David Jones occupied the building. I’m pretty sure (if my memory is correct) that it was the Lancome counter for sometime.
Here are some photos capturing the transformation of the space into my very own little boutique perfumery:
Despite not having the labels ready for my perfume bar bottles, a lovely chap was all geared up to have a go at choosing his ingredients for a custom blend. It turned out amazing with notes of: cedar, lavender, fig, rosewood and bergamot. He actually had a really fine tuned nose and it was great to hear his impressions as he smelt the ingredients. With shop sales + online orders today it’s been a fabulous start, to what I hope will become an exciting smell experience for all who stop by.
