The Atelier Ascot

Recently opening along Racecourse Road, The Atelier Ascot is a bespoke shopping experience for the senses. You don’t just simply shop – you will be personally guided through the handpicked fragrances and products on offer. Owners Jason and Jim are not just the creative minds behind the space, but they are also the in-house perfumers behind beautiful brands such as JAJI Fragrances, JAJI Parfumerie, and the newly released gents’ product range, Earl & Duke.

Their home and body collection includes seven very unique fragrances and their divine parfum collection includes four niche parfums. Designed in house by Jason and Jim, all of the fragrances and parfums are strikingly complex. The suite of delightful products range from parfum candles, reed diffusers, hand and body wash, plus parfum lotion and bars.

As if there wasn’t already enough to explore, coming soon to the Atelier are two new and exclusive perfumes. “Our fragrances are not created specifically for any gender,” says Jason and Jim. “Fragrances are personal, and we believe that the individual should choose what they feel works for them!”
