About The Cotswold Perfumery

Established in 1966, the Cotswold Perfumery specialises in creating fine fragrances for the niche market – something we’ve been doing for over 50 years.

We sell a range of unique fragrances from our shop in the beautiful Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water, and from our online store right here on this website. We also create bespoke fragrances for companies in the niche perfume market, which are sold under different names in London, the USA, the Middle East, Russia and Europe.

You’ll find the Cotswold Perfumery in this beautiful Grade II listed, 300-year-old building in Bourton-on-the-Water, where fragrances are created by our chief perfumer – the experienced, skilled and incredibly knowledgeable, John Stephen 

This is also where we run perfume courses that attract delegates from countries as far flung as New Zealand and Bermuda, and where luxury holiday accommodation is available in our award-winning Cotswold apartments – and more recently in Cheltenham town centre.
