Supporting small businesses at our small family shop feels right. I’m grateful to do so during these difficult times.-Nir Guy of Perfumology The post Small Business Saturday 2020: Perfumology in Philadelphia +#Shopsmall Draw appeared first on ÇaFleureBon Perfume Blog.Small Business Saturday 2020: Perfumology in Philadelphia +#Shopsmall Draw — ÇaFleureBon Perfume Blog
As part of what has become “Black Friday” weekend, today we have “Small Business Saturday”, and the blog CaFleureBon is highlighting a well-regarded niche perfumery based in Philadelphia, Perfumology. It is a small, family-owned business owned and run by Nir Guy. Like many small businesses in retail, it has had its challenges in 2020, especially as it had focused on in-person service and events, which are currently not feasible (though they’ve taken some events online, apparently). I placed a small order today (a discovery set) to show support. I appreciate the role that niche perfumeries play in discovering and supporting independent perfumers.
Do you have a favorite brick-and-mortar perfumery?

Happy weekend, fragrance friends! Today is “Small Business Saturday”, an opportunity to shop locally, and support small independent businesses — like many of the perfumers and fragrance retailers we all love. Some have special discounts this weekend; others simply offer the same reasonable prices many have year-round. The list below is somewhat arbitrary, but most are websites I have used myself.
Discounts (some started yesterday):
DSH Perfumes: sparkle2018 (20% off sitewide); gifts with purchase also available.
Indigo Perfumery: blackfriday2018 (20% off full bottles)
Le Jardin Retrouve: free shipping worldwide this weekend
PK Perfumes: PKCYBER30 (30% sitewide and free shipping)
Shelley Kyle: THANKFUL (30% off sitewide)
Smell Bent: WONDERFUL (40% off sitewide)
Twisted Lily: THANKYOU2018 (20% off entire order)
Independent perfumers (mostly in the US) who sell directly:
En Voyage Perfumes
Providence Perfume Company
Sixteen92: various codes for discounts depending on purchase
St. Clair Scents
Independent perfumeries (retailers):
LuckyScent: special Black Friday sample set
Smallflower Apothecary (Merz)
The Perfumed Court (samples and decants)
Today has been christened “Small Business Saturday” in the retail world: a day during the long Thanksgiving weekend when shoppers can support local and small businesses. So I happily used a discount code to make my first purchase from PK Perfumes, a small independent niche perfumery. If you want to do likewise, the code is: PKFRIDAY40, for 40% off this whole weekend, on the whole website.
