Established in Berlin

Harry Lehmann opened the perfumery in 1926 on Potsdamer Straße , near the Potsdam Brücke in the heart of Berlin, just before what was then and is now Potsdamer Platz.


Relocation to Friedrichstrasse

From 1940 to 1943, the business moved to Friedrichstrasse at the passage, just before Unter den Linden. Passersby have always lingered in front of the shop window, admiring the many perfume bottles.


Destruction & Reconstruction

In Friedrichstrasse, the shop was completely destroyed by bombs. Harry Lehmann personally salvaged the last intact goods from the rubble. Reconstruction began in 1946 at Friedrichstrasse corner Mohrenstrasse, where Quartier 205 stands today.


Joachimsthaler Str. at the zoo

Due to the escalating East-West tensions, the shop relocated to Joachimsthaler Strasse, across from Bahnhof Zoo and the Zoologischer Garten.


"Tropfer" (Dropper)

In the Joachimsthaler Strasse branch "Am Zoo" the well-known "Tropfer" hung, dispensing complimentary drops of the daily fragrance for sampling around the clock. It was an attraction in Berlin that received extensive praise in the press. The "Tropfer" still exists today.


Kantstr. 106 - World famous to this day

In 1958, a small shop was opened at Kantstrasse 106, close to the bustling shopping mile of Wilmersdorfer Strasse. Two years later, it was expanded to double its capacity. This location remains the same even today.


New Owners & Renovation

In May 2022, Lutz Lehmann, the owner of Harry Lehmann Perfumery, passed away. During his lifetime, he expressed the wish to find someone who would continue the legacy of the traditional business.

After 1.5 years of standstill, the business was taken over by two young Berliners. They are carefully continuing the business, respecting and preserving its history.
