Qatar Duty Free Senior Vice President, Mr. Luis Gasset said, ďWe are delighted with the opening of this much-anticipated store and iconic British brand at Hamad International Airport. We have brought Penhaligonís all the way from London to our state-of-the-art, five-star airport, giving passengers the ability to experience the unique aromas of these remarkable fragrances. The boutique not only celebrates the diverse and unique heritage of Britain, but also shows our continuous efforts in ensuring that passengers are given a luxurious shopping experience whenever they visit Qatar Duty Free.Ē

With approximately 15 square meters of retail space, designed by renowned British architects Al-Jawad Pike, the Penhaligonís boutique at HIA combines elements of the brandís rich heritage with a sleek and contemporary twist.

 The store is fully bespoke, with all fixtures intricately hand-crafted, including illuminated floor to ceiling shelving and a signature Georgian-inspired geometric patterned floor, comprised of three different types of stone.

As part of Penhaligonís profiling service, each store features a custom profiling table Ė a feature in each of the brandís flagship boutiques Ė evoking the design of the Olympic cauldron created for the 2012 London Olympic Games, which features 36 brass spires representing the flames that illuminated the cauldron.

 Every fragrance created by Penhaligonís is displayed on this table, inviting guests to discover their favourite scent. For customers with time constraints, the service is also available through a guided touch screen service in store.

The opening of Penhaligonís at HIA follows the successful entry of the Penhaligonís brand into travel retailers across the globe, including London Heathrow, Dubai International Airport, Paris Charles-de-Gaulle, Rome Fiumicino and Nice CŰte d'Azur Airport, in addition to Korean downtown duty free stores.
