Douglas Cosmetics, Union Station
I recently discovered the Douglas Cosmetics store at Union Station. It was closed when I got there, but I looked through the window and discovered that they carried the Bond No. 9 line. Even though I'm not really a fan of Bond No. 9, this piqued my interest so I've done some research on the company. It's a German company (under the name "Parfümerie Douglas" in Europe) that is the largest cosmetics retailer in Europe with 600 stores in Italy, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, and others.
There are actually 2 stores in the DC Area:
Union Station (50 Massachusetts Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20002)
1145 Connecticut Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20036
The German site for Parfümerie Douglas lists many good lines (Balenciaga & Etro caught my eye). I can't comment on exactly what lines they carry, but I will go down soon and check it out and report back. If you be me to it feel free to comment here and let me know about it.
