This Czech-brand store sells hand-made soaps, creams, essential oils, fragrances and herbal tea. These are imported directly from the Czech Republic and were on display during the World Expo Shanghai 2010 in the Czech Pavilion.
The decor of the store is also in a Czech style, and visitors entering the shop are struck by the pervading aromatic smell.
Dried flowers and special offers take center stage, while other commodities are arranged in shelves on both sides. Hand-made soaps and creams are classified according to the flowers used in their production. Lavender, rose and calendula are the main types.
Essential oils are star products here, with customers attracted by their purity. However, the price is higher than other brands, at about 300 (US$47) to 400 yuan per bottle.
