I love when friends come to town and we venture to many of the great spots
to shop and dine that Perth have to offer.
I did just that when my good friend Clayton of the sweet smelling blog, 
What Men Should Small Like came to town.

We made a visit to Mariposa, located in Mt Lawley. 
Filled with such a lovely collection of perfume, candles, skin care, cosmetics, 
Mariposa is a store I have visited before but to visit with someone who
 is so passionate about fragrance was a different experience.

Whilst I like perfumes, I don't have a huge passion for them. 
But as we know what I do have is the passion for interiors and this little 
tucked away store does not disappoint.


Modern, clean yet warm interior with visual merchandising that is actually really quite easy to 
view despite the significant quantities of product. You just want to take your time and 
wander and smell and try.


Great selection of Aesop in store, which is great for me as I'm a huge fan.


After trying a number of perfumes (and I mean a lot!) I came across the one above that I really liked.


Not seen in the top overall image of the store, the fixtures and fittings also have beautiful vintage
 pieces of furniture and different elements. It's a really well placed combination.


Mariposa is a great inspiration should I one day open up
the Our Little Place bricks and mortar store.
