With sister stores in Sheffield and Morpeth, Sandersons has already built up a reputation for its sought after, high end fragrances.

Catherine the Great sent her royal envoy to London to collect perfumes from Atkinsons to be taken back to her in Moscow.
The Initio fragrance collection focuses on the science behind the scent and explores how different fragrances can affect moods. The brand’s theme is “to re-enchant fragrance, to restore all of its aura and mystery and control the infinite power that it has over us.”
