With three high street shops in Lisbon and two in shopping centres Amoreiras and Colombo, the famous Portuguese cosmetics brand Benamôr finally head north to open its first shop. It's in the heart of Rua das Flores and the atmosphere is a bit like old pharmacies – with shades of green and red, and glazed cabinets that hold the brand's various ranges – not forgetting the marble central counter with little sinks for trying out the products. The Benamôr family has grown over the years, with the Nata range, inspired by Portuguese pastries and traditional sweets, being the youngest member. The other shelves stock shower gels, oils, balms, body butters and even micellar water.
