Like a portal through time, a marble staircase connects the two rooms of this split-level Lisbon shop, each with a distinct mood: past or future. Bold geometric patterns of floor tiles define each space, while wooden wall units act as a connective thread between the shop’s distinct epochs. In the retro room, the service counter is a polished brass mono-
lith that reflects the 130-year-old fragrance brand’s beautifully packaged products, displayed in antique apothecary cabinets. Downstairs, the flagship storefront is a sleek and modern salon where doting stylists stow products out of sight in an archive of sleek wooden drawers.
