Harrods has launched its first stand-alone H Beauty destination in Scotland, in the heart of Edinburgh.

Following two successful H Beauty store openings, it’s the first store for the chain to be found outside of southern England with an opening in the premium St James Quarter shopping district.

The retailer said it reflects Harrods’ “commitment to bringing its industry-leading expertise in creating luxury shopping experiences through its unique curation of brands, to new communities across the UK”.


The 21,000 sq ft store “embodies the future of beauty, providing an expansive space for customers to enjoy a diverse portfolio of exceptional services and must-have products from over 90 international beauty brands”.

H Beauty will support local talent and up and coming Scottish brands, whose values directly connect with Harrods own, with its ‘Born & Bred’ offering, featuring local brands such as Vieve, Moo & Yoo, Kingdom Scotland and Lola’s Lashes.

The store also offers the first physical location in Edinburgh for local customers to test, products instore from the Charlotte Tilbury, to Kora Organics. 

Premium brands such as Chanel, Dior and Givenchy sit alongside cult-favourites, some who until now have only had a limited presence in Edinburgh including Westman Atelier, Kylie Cosmetics, and Sunday Riley.
