"Nicolas Cloutier and Mark Buxton are key members of the seven-strong team that launched Nose, a "diagnostic" perfumery pffering more than a spritz of the latest couture fragrance. Instead, customers are gently quizzed about their olactory whims and wishes before being guided towards a handful of potions that might suit. Apart from expertise and a certain sense of ceremony, what's on offer is an ahead-of-the-curve selection of scents, from Brooklyn-based DS & Durga and Dr Vranjes to Miller et Bertaux and COmme des Garcons. The 175sq m shop, replete with fridge-style storage, also stocks beauty products by Retrouvé and Joëlle Ciocco, and treats for the home by Astier de Villate, Malin + Goetz and Cire Trudon."
