    One of our key aims is to reduce waste and the size of our carbon footprint. Last year we recycled 83% of our waste. In 2019, we streamlined our deliveries, using 61,000 less litres of diesel vs previous years. We continue to work with our national fleet partner to reduce their mileage and emissions. Our stores are moving towards operating digitally through customer facing screens and are 100% zero carbon with electricity generated wind, solar and hydro. All our energy is renewable. All our lighting is LED.

Since the launch the ranges have gone from strength to strength, gaining cut through in the media with titles including Sunday Express, Daily Mirror, New and Woman and Home. We were thrilled to also announce The Perfume Edit as an award winner at the Pure Beauty Awards, and the Lime & Basil scent won the Citrus category at OK magazines Real Beauty Awards.

  • Working In Partnership With Our Suppliers

    We were the first retailer to introduce the Thierry Mugler refillable bottle and continue to work with our suppliers to offer customers sustainable solutions. We strive to lead the way and be an early adopter for brands introducing sustainable options and refills, with last year seeing fragrance powerhouse Lancôme launch the refillable Idôle which has been a hit with our customers.

    Our packaging for online deliveries is made from 80% post-consumer waste and is 100% recyclable. We now provide our stores with paper bags only, saving seven million plastic bags from entering the UK market each year. We also no longer produce plastic Rewards Club cards, asking you to instead use our digital card on The Perfume Shop app. In 2019, we reduced the amount of printed paper by 66% compared to previous years...that's 3.8 tonnes, almost the weight of an elephant!
