Meet the Family - D. R. Harris & Co

At The Perfumer, we’ve been careful in selecting only the finest products to fly off our shelves. In this short series, we’re going to introduce you to our favourite products, and the brands who we collaborate with in order to bring them to you. In no particular order (other than alphabetical!), it’s time to get acquainted with our extended family. 


In 1790, an apothecary set up shop at No. 11 St. James’s Street. Over the following years, the family’s lavender water and classic colognes earned them a reputation amongst London’s fashionable population, expanding their offering and serving the gentry until in 1938 they were awarded the warrant as chemists to Her Majesty the Queen, later the Queen Mother. Adapting with the times through their commitment to environmentally-friendly processes and sustainable approach to animal welfare, D. R. Harris & Co have maintained their appointments to the Royal Family, and continue to appeal to those who appreciate quality and distinction.

D.R Harris Sandalwood Head to Toe Wash

Designed for use in the bath and shower, the Sandalwood Head-to-Toe Wash can be used to wash the hair as well as the body. Perfumed with sandalwood and spicy notes of eucalyptus, bergamot, camphor, clove and vetiver, this bathing tincture is made entirely from natural oils. 


R Harris Lavender Shaving Stick

Lavender was the scent with which the D. R Harris family made their name, and the fragrance remains at the heart of their most popular products, including the D. R Harris Lavender Shaving Stick. Made using the same high quality solid soap as the rest of their products, the shaving stick has been packaged in a plastic container for convenience. 


R Harris Sandalwood Shaving Soap

A traditional, solid white shaving soap of the finest quality, the D. R Harris Sandalwood Shaving Soap has been triple-milled to increase the richness of the lather. Fragranced with sandalwood, clove and vetiver, each soap is designed to last for months, and elegantly presented in sustainably sourced mahogany-effect sheesham wood to introduce a touch of traditional refinement to any bathroom.


R Harris Arlington Cologne

One of the best selling colognes in the collection, this light citrus fragrance is mixed with notes of Fern in a concentrated aftershave that provides a lively but subtle scent. Suitable for all occasions, this cologne is an ideal fragrance for daytime due to its lighter tones. The D. R Harris Arlington Cologne is available in a 50ml spray or a 100ml glass bottle.


R Harris Arlington Stick Deodorant

To keep you fresh throughout the day, this solid deodorant stick replicates the subtle fragrance of Citrus and Fern found in the Arlington Cologne, and contains a bacteriostat to destroy the bacteria responsible for odour. If you don’t want or need an antiperspirant, the D. R Harris Arlington Stick Deodorant is suitable for all skin types. 


With outstanding levels of service, D. R. Harris has established itself as an elegant solution to needs related to soaps, shaving creams, aftershaves, skincare and colognes, sourcing as many products as possible from within the UK in order to support British business.
