When you’re next in the Royal Arcade, you must visit the famous French perfumery & Guerlain Beauty Salon, Paint’ n Powder. This is pampering of the highest order. A place you can indulge a passion for the latest in perfumery. Or simply rejuvenate your spirit with a luxurious body treatment.

The beauty of old world charm.

Paint’ n Powder is a fascinating story in itself. In 1969 Diane and Neville Spielvogel opened a boutique French perfumery unique to anything in Australia at the time. Through the years, the Spielvogel’s reputation grew in the fashion world to the point they were once approached by the International Cultural Corporation to be involved in an exhibition at the Art Gallery of both Melbourne and NSW called ‘Fabulous Fashions’ featuring Haute Couture designers such as Balenciaga and Chanel.

Today when you step inside Paint’ n Powder you’ll be delighted at the exquisite mix of old world charm with crystal evening bags, designer sunglasses and tantalising French silk scarves right next to the latest perfumes, beauty products and beauty treatments from around the world.
