Postcards from Brussels

Welcome to Brussels, Korres!

Last Thursday I joined the opening celebrations of the Brussels Flag Ship store for the Greek natural cosmetics brand Korres. The story of the brand, whose innovative and stylish packaging has won design awards and whose product range now offers make-up, skin care, hair products and fragrances, started when George Korres joined his pharmacological expertise with the homeopathic tradition of Greece’s first homeopathic pharmacy, The Tzivanides, to introduce a natural skin care line. I remember how I first got to know this brand, when I found a small selection of the it’s products in a pharmacy in Cyprus about 5-6 years ago. I had read about Korres before, but the products were difficult to come by back then in Finland. Over the years I have discovered a few pharmacies and retailers stocking my favourite face wash and shower gel wherever I lived, but now I’m happy that I can just walk into this amazing store and experience the world of Korres to the full.

    Can you let me know where to find this store in Brussels? I do not seem to find it in your article. I am a great fan as well.
