A warm welcome to Spitzenhaus Parfumerie! Our shop is housed in a magnificent building from 1884 where beauty is a time-honored tradition. It all began with Grieder Les Boutiques, purveyor of fashionable attire to the Belle Époque gentry of the day, until the growing business moved its premises to the nearby Paradeplatz in 1913.
Here in the Börsenstraße the sale of exquisite textiles continued: for several generations the main trade was in fine lace goods (Ger.: Spitzenwaren). The name of our perfumery SPITZENHAUS – Premium Care & Fine Fragrances pays homage to this golden era.
The sales space has retained its original historic character. The building is a listed historical monument, and thus subject to a strict conservation code, outside and in. For the reincarnation as a perfumery the interior elements under heritage protection – built-in display cases, decorative stuccowork and wainscoting with woodcarvings in the Louis XVI style – were painstakingly restored to their original condition, with loving attention to detail.
The shop concept is the brainchild of design agency Bel Epok, which was also responsible for the execution. The result is a space that radiates warmth and modernity: with its subdued colors and elements of historicism and Art Deco it is a refined environment for luxurious cosmetics and exclusive fragrances.
