The first downtown location of this venerable British bath-and-body brand shares the same up-market stock as its East Side sisters, with the added touch of original fixtures left over from its landmark loft conversion, like ultrahigh ceilings and a central iron column. The airy, 1,000-square-foot space sees ample foot traffic from neighbors like Burberry and Longchamp. Shoppers can test the brand’s full line of plant-extract-based makeup; staffers offer complimentary skin-color facials, showcasing the basics of the collection. Naran Ji hand wash continues a top seller, but the store also does brisk business in its hefty candles, complete with hand-blown glass cases imported from Lithuania. Products for men have their own up-front location, for easy access to black-pepper body hydrator or lemon leaf shave wax.Extra
