Located in conveniently named Billionaire’s Row on 57th Street, Amaffi Perfume House is an ultra-luxe store with lavish scents priced at upwards of $7,000.
With operating stores in Switzerland, United Kingdom and Russia, the luxury brand recently opened their new flagship in New York City. Restoring the classic art of perfumery, through original techniques and the use of natural, rare ingredients sustainably sourced from around the world, that is the perfume’s house moto and mission.
The luxury brand works in collaboration with top perfumers who create new and revolutionary fragrances which achieve stability, and a lasting sillage (the perfume trail left in the air when someone leaves a room) while maintaining a high perfume concentration.
Each perfume is a work of art, from its unique scents to its crafted bottles which is why a single unit might take two years to create.
Amaffi Perfume House is the epitome of a luxury store. The products they create are unique, the space is an ode to design, and the experience is unmatched, for example the store has a wine and champagne bar that provides clientele with the level of hospitality they expect from this amazing luxury brand.
TPG Architecture, a renowned New York-based design firm was responsible for materializing the luxury brand’s ethos, creating a storefront which draws inspiration from Neoclassic, Contemporary and Art Deco.
The extravagancy behind Amaffi Perfume House was beautifully brought to life by the New York-based design firm, starting with the imposing main entrance, an almost regal stone portal made of 7,000 pounds of rare Dior Gold Quartzite from South America. Stepping inside, one sees the gold cove ceiling of the vestibule and the lightboxes on each side which create a transitional element. The store is almost like a luxurious jewel box in black lacquer, gilded tones, and sparkling crystals.
The expensive perfumes are displayed like precious gems, spot-lit and under lock and key. Corinthian columns and an obsidian and gold inlay meteorite polished stone provide an extra classic and luxurious touch.
The opulence is also present in the store’s high ceilings, reaching up to 14 feet, give the illusion of a floating, celestial plane. Swarovski crystal chandeliers furnish the space, providing an extra opulent touch.
“Embedded in the ceiling are more than 2,500 individual lights — designed like a starry sky with shooting star effects in several locations,”
Joseph Park, Retail Director at TPG Architecture.
Amaffi Perfume House is the epitome of extravagance, and their store embodies that in the most creative and harmonious of ways. A true luxury landmark right in the center of New York City!
