About Us

Cotswold Perfumery was established in 1966 and specialises in Fine Fragrances for the niche market.

A range of unique fragrances is available from the Cotswold Perfumery shop as well as this website, but the Cotswold Perfumery has made numerous fragrances for other companies in the niche market, sold under different names in London, the USA, the Middle East, Russia and Europe.

The Cotswold Perfumery home is this beautiful Grade II Listed, 300 year old property in Bourton on the Water. This is where perfumes are created by John Stephen - the chief perfumer. It is also where Perfume Courses are run, where fragrances are available in the retail shop, where Factory Tours can be booked and where accommodation is available in our award winning apartments in the old part of the Perfumery - and more recently in Cheltenham town centre.
