D. R. Harris

    Originally opened as an apothecary partnership between a chemist and a surgeon over two hundred years ago, D.R. Harris is one of those "ye olde" London stores that is as much about the history as the product - but that's not to say that the ancient chemist located in St. James Park doesn’t have some mighty fine treasures. Bushy-faced males will be impressed with the varied array of luxury shaving foams and classic apparatuses that are a specialty here, and there are charms for women too, in the form of the famous D.R. Harris lip balms, face creams and perfumes. The interior of the shop appears to have changed minimally since its inception in 1790 and all the powders and potions that a modern chemist requires remain shut away in style inside antique cabinets and cases. As chemists to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and Her Majesty the Queen, a visit to D.R. Harris for soaps, aftershaves or essential oils will place you in some illustrious company.Show lessRead more
