Fragrance Finder: D.R. Harris Cologne

For over two centuries, D. R. Harris has been operating out of the St James’s area of London as specialists in traditional gentleman’s grooming products. They are the oldest pharmacy in London, with Royal Warrants to the Queen and the Prince of Wales - with a traditional range of creams, aftershaves, skin care products and colognes

There are a couple of scents by D. R. Harris that have become iconic over the years, and we’re proud to stock both of them. Their classic colognes come in glass bottles that can be re-used - all part of their drive to become as carbon neutral as possible by removing cellophane from their products and ensuring all of the materials used are recyclable.

R. Harris Sandalwood Cologne

The Sandalwood Cologne from D. R. Harris is an extremely masculine fragrance thanks to its distinctive essence of sandalwood, strengthened by notes of Eucalyptus, Camphor, Clove, Bergamot, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Rosemary Oil. An extremely herbal but manly scent, this is a very good option for somebody who is looking to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons. Because this scent is powerful, a little goes a long way - so you can expect a 50ml spray bottle to last a long time - keep a bottle in your bathroom cabinet to start your day with a handsome scent

R. Harris Arlington Cologne

One of D. R. Harris’ best-sellers, this verdant fragrance is defined by light Citrus notes mixed with hints of Fern for a lively but subtle scent. Although this is a lighter fragrance designed for daytime wear, it’s suitable for all occasions - and this more concentrated version of the Arlington Aftershave (also available online at The Perfumer) lasts a little longer, so one or two sprays of Arlington Cologne in the morning should carry you through the day with no problem.
