Looking For Something Unique - Harrods' Mia Collins On The Salon De Parfums

"We had a Portuguese craftsman come to hand paint all of the gold leaf detailing on the oak panels, in the Henry Jacques boutique; we had a team from Italy lovingly install the Murano light fitting in the Xerjoff boutique and over 3,000 origami flowers were created in France for the Dior boutique."
The words above are from Mia Collins, Harrods' Head Of Beauty, and they refer to one of last year's most high-profile additions to London's perfume shopping scene, the Salon De Parfums.
