After over 100 years of trading, Burgins Perfumery has closed its doors for the final time. Special thanks to high street and online discounters for hastening the departure of this beloved establishment. Shame on me for shopping in this way, while I'm apportioning blame. I...More

Hello VM1960 Thank you for your review which I am of course extremely disappointed to receive, and one which I believe to be wholly unfair, as I will explain. Since taking over Burgins Perfumery 4 years ago, I have set about ensuring that Burgins is...More
