Over the next 50 years the family established a reputation in selling Lavender Water, Classic Cologne and English Flower perfumes to this fashionable quarter of London.
One of the proprietors named Henry Harris, was a surgeon, while Daniel Rotely Harris, who is said to have given the present shop its name, was an early Pharmaceutical Chemist.
For over two centuries this family business in the center of men’s clubland has served the gentry and the Court of St. James’s. In 1938 DR Harris were granted the Royal Warrant as chemist to her Majesty the Queen, later known as The Queen Mother. Continuing there traditions, in 2002, DR Harris was granted the Royal Warrant as chemists to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) and in 2012 they were granted a Royal Warrant as Pharmacist and Pharmacy supplies to Her Majesty The Queen.
