The Perfume Factory

A beautiful heritage.

Responsible for many of the Art Deco buildings in London and UK, British architectural partnership, Wallis Gilbert & Partners designed the original Perfume Factory in 1939. Elizabeth Arden, a cosmetician who set up her own business in New York gained much success in America and so forth set up British operations at the Perfume Factory site, now a locally listed building.

As part of the landscape design, a red arch located at the site’s gateway has been planned as a nod to Arden’s infamous ‘Red Door’ fragrance.
