Tell us about Durance and the philosophy behind your fragrances, homewares and clothing.
Upon entering Durance you soon find out its about a whole experience - fragrance, ambiance, light and subtle hues. The actual Durance products are made in Southern France from pure ingredients. The scents range from lime, verbena, cotton, olive etc., all found in nature. Body, Bath, and laundry products are the most popular. I try to source our homewares from small manufacturers so I can work with them to create pieces I love and that cannot be found everywhere and that sit well within my boutique - and my home!
How is your clothing sourced?
Clothing is the main emphasis of Durance although it didn’t begin that way. It has grown over the past 16 years years through special requests from an ever growing list of loyal customers. I source from all the world, always keeping to true to myself and keeping in mind my customers. I very much never try to bend to trends and buy with my gut and heart!
You have two stores on High Street. Can you tell us about them?
Durance has recently moved location - not far just down High Street a little to near the corner of Kings Arcade. 972 High Street Armadale, 3143. I have also just opened an Outlet shop within King Arcade - number 4 Kings Arcade Armadale for those wanting a bargain!
