This is fantastic shop, I wish there were more than 5 stars to give them! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, have a genuine interest in their work and offer unparalleled customer service. They were infinitely patient with me as I sniffed at least 50 different scents, and they did all they could to help me find a perfume that I... More

As a man with a beard its hard to find a shop that sells beard product especially in York. But this shop has everything I need from oils, waxes and even beard combs and brushes. Lovely little shop great customer services as well.

Today I bought a men's hairbrush (Kent MS11) for GBP 45 at Burgins and a shaving brush (Kent BK8) for GBP 96. The service was good but I was disappointed to find out later in the day that the official recommended retail price for the hairbrush is GBP 40 and for the shaving brush GBP 87. This is very disappointing... More

Hello VM1960 Thank you for your review which I am of course extremely disappointed to receive, and one which I believe to be wholly unfair, as I will explain. Since taking over Burgins Perfumery 4 years ago, I have set about ensuring that Burgins is extremely price competitive within York, being surrounded by some of the largest competitors and discounters....

I would describe myself as a "fragrance anorak" This establishment is in part to blame, and so every time I return I feel like I've come home. Service is always in the premier league, across a range of staff who give me the impression this is something of a family enterprise. If you have the time to look, you must... More

Absolutely first class service. I went into Burgins to find myself a new fragrance and I was served by who I believe was the director Hanus. I told him what I was roughly looking for and after sampling around 10 different fragrances I came away with two fragrances. One that I had my eye on for a while after trying... More

A wide selection of products including a good selection of men's traditional shaving products in small and quirky shop with knowledgeable staff who are keen to help with no pressure to buy. Well worth a visit. We will be back.

Fantastic knowledgeable lady who was able to select a variety of perfumes according to my previous tastes, walked out with a beautiful new fragrance and a smile on my face. I always make sure I call in whilst I am i. York. Excellent service

I visited on Valentine's Day with my wife, as a treat. (for me) I have been aware of Burgins for as long as I have been a visitor to York. For many years it seemed too niche, or high - end for me, but I promised myself it was a shop to check out at some point. I have called... More

Having been unable to purchase my favourite perfume Eclat D'Arpege by Lanvin in my home town I called here on my last day in York not expecting that the shop would stock it as many people don't but they did ! A little more costly but it didn't matter as being able to buy my perfume was well worth it... More
