When it comes to sophisticated summer destinations, Mykonos tops the list. Celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Gerard Butler, and Katy Perry flock to the Greek island every summer to relax, unwind, and celebrate — and to provide fodder for the international tabloids. Now there’s one more reason for you to join the glitterati: the newly opened AVERY Perfume Gallery makes Nammos Beach the go-to spot for fragrance lovers.

Designed by star architect Rocco Valantines.
Located in the upscale Nammos Mall, the perfumery was designed by Rocco Valantines, partner at renowned Paris-based architecture firm MenoMenoPiu. Valantines and his colleagues are also the masterminds behind spectacular projects such as the New Bauhaus Museum in Dessau and the Helsinki Central Library.
“It has been a great pleasure to work with Rocco Valantines in Paris. This unique and sophisticated design was inspired by the simplicity and the clean cuts of traditional Myconian architecture,” explains Celso Fadelli, president and fragrance curator of Intertrade Group, the company behind the AVERY Perfume Gallery. Valantines found a contemporary and clean-cut way to adapt local traditional elements such as arches and whitewashed walls to the space — a perfect platform to present the olfactive offerings of more than 20 niche fragrance brands. Among the brands on offer here are Agonist, A Lab on Fire, Nasomatto, Santa Eulalia, and Andrée Putman to name but a few.

“Capturing the ethereal feel of Mykonos.”
Fadelli adds: “We are confident that this latest addition to our artistic perfumery network will become a top destination for many of those who flock to this beautiful island to escape their routines and seek relaxation. The boutique perfectly captures the light and shade and the ethereal feel of Mykonos’s unique architectural design and glamorous style.”
