November 24, 2017
Today is Black Friday and if you’re like me, the madness began last week as hundreds of e-blasts filled your inbox. Something closer to my heart is Small Business Saturday (which is November 25, 2017); I am not alone as the page has nearly 4 million likes on FaceBook. Cheers to the American indie retailers and entrepreneurs who think global but have local brick and mortar stores as well as e-shops…not in Paris, New York or London but in towns that aren’t usually on one’s travel perfume itinerary.
Nir Guy, owner of Perfumology
Perfumology is a family owned perfumery with an olfactive symphony of scents unparalleled in the Philadelphia area. Owner Nir Guy curates exclusive brands to this new perfumery located in the Court at King of Prussia, an upscale mall near Philadelphia. “We’ve scoured the world for the best fragrances made of quality and unique ingredients,” Guy explains. “These are small batch, artisan grade scents that reflect the trends in fashion and beauty.”
Belle Fleur, Etat Libre d'Orange
The new Perfumology store, which opened its doors October 2017, boasts a modern design with spalted maple shelves and counters from single tree from a farm in Lancaster County, Pa. Guy worked to design an atmosphere that would allow for clean presentation of perfumes, simple to the eye and easy to navigate between brands.

The philosophy at Perfumology: “It’s all about luxury, taste, flavor, and smell”, according to Guy, “scents that make you happy for your person, room and grooming ritual.”
Parfums Dusita at Perfumology
With several new brands, Perfumology is a stockist for Parfums Dusita (Le Douceur de Siam is popular), Parfums Lubin (one of the best sellers for the boutique is Akaad for men), Gallivant (Nick Steward the brand’s founder gallivanted to KOP last week, and in a few hours every perfume in stock nearly sold out …Tel-Aviv and Brooklyn are favorites.
Zoologist perfumes are favorites, and Bat the 2016 Art and Olfaction Award winner (Victor Wong and Ellen Covey) flies off the shelf, at night (online). Perfumology also stocks celebrity-coveted Belle Fleur Candles, a collaboration between award-winning owner Tony Perez and perfumer Jerome Epinette. Each candle burns for over 50 hours and the aromas are luxurious scents highlighting floral and essential raw oils. No surprise that Queen Bey’s favorite Mayan Tuberose lights up client’s faces. Perfumology also offer a complete line of men’s grooming products including Chiseled Face, Catie’s Bubbles and Charcoal Goods.
With over 50 designer, niche and artisan fragrances, Perfumolgy will continue to add new scents and products with a focus on the hard to find and the unique. Perfumology’s own creation “Blyss” is the store’s best seller, and no, Nir doesn’t hard sell it; read Gail Gross’ review here for why customers love it!
