A shopping trip in Beverly Hills wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the celebrity-adored Anne Sisteron. With her unique Danish diplomat upbringing and Graduate Gemologist and GIA Diamond Grader certifications, Sisteron’s background has provided her with exceptional taste and decades of inspiration for her quality pieces. Her designs have been featured in dozens of prominent fashion magazines and have been worn by celebrities like Nick Jonas, Gigi Hadid, and Viola Davis.
Beautiful, intricate jewelry is not the only selling point that makes a trip to Anne Sisteron memorable. The 1,000 square-foot flagship store, located at 440 North Canyon Drive, is brand new - it officially opened on June 20 and is set to host a grand opening on September 14. The storefront boasts 17-foot ceilings and the Breegan Jane-designed interior provides a retro feel with chartreuse walls and eclectic lighting throughout.
Anne Sisteron’s brand not only prides itself on exquisite craftsmanship and attentive customer service, but Sisteron makes it her mission to donate a percentage of all sales to various charities each year. She also holds in-store fundraisers and events to support these charities, believing that “there is no greater good than being philanthropic.”
The House of Creed is synonymous with royalty. The company began bottling Royal English Leather – a mixture of mandarin, ambergris, and sandalwood – for King George III in 1781 after he sought a unique fragrance for his riding gloves. In 1824, Henry Creed II expanded his perfume brand throughout Europe, fulfilling unique commissions for dozens of Europe’s monarchies.
Over the course of 250 years, the brand has expanded and is known for its iconic “Spring Flower” scent — an attempt to bottle the “Golden Age of Hollywood” in 1951 — and 1985’s “Green Irish Tweed,” a favorite among Creed’s acclaimed clients.
Today, the House of Creed relies on an ancient infusion technique to highlight their fragrances, and each scent is filtered by hand. Sixth-generation Master Perfumer Olivier Creed and his son, Edwin, travel the world to capture the perfect aromas for their new fragrances while maintaining the fragrances of “The Vault,” which preserve the scents of royalty from the last few centuries.
The House of Creed is world-renowned as the most luxurious — and mysterious — fragrance brand. You’ll be offered a personalized concierge service, fragrance tutorials, and engraved bottles for purchase. Visit their boutique shop at 9533 Brighton Way, Unit A1 to learn more about the history of this illustrious business and try a few scents for yourself.

"Something beautiful is hidden inside each bottle of wine - whether it is an idea, a story or a stimulating conversation. Wine talks to the senses, builds the intellect, and inspires you."
Charles Denois, wine-maker and general manager of Héritage Fine Wine, understands the intricacies of fine wine like no other. Leveraging a childhood spent in the vineyards of southern France and a Master’s from the famous international hospitality school Vatel, Denois and Héritage Fine Wine owner Jordane Andrieu work collaboratively to bring a “biodynamic experience” to all who enter the doors of 467 North Canon Drive.
Héritage Fine Wines is a shop, a tasting lounge, and a gourmet boutique, all in one spot. The idea behind creating an experience, rather than a traditional retail shop, is rooted in Andrieu’s education in France and Burgundy. With an MBA and a degree in oenology, Andrieu is the current manager of one of the oldest vineyards in Côte d’Or. Andrieu wanted to bring a one-of-a-kind opportunity to Beverly Hills, where guests can experience the elegance of fine French wine and food while basking outdoors in the California sun.
The shop was renovated in collaboration with musician John Legend, while products are flown in from France daily. Héritage Fine Wines offers in-store shopping, wine clubs, delivery, and Postmate orders in the Beverly Hills area. If you choose to visit, plan your trip around their live music schedule for the full experience!

If you’re looking to support a family business that has been in the area since the ‘60s, stop into The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, located at 419 North Beverly Drive. In 1967, Colonel Sigmund Roth embarked on a journey to bring gourmet cheeses and food to Southern California, all while keeping the charm of an old-world shop. The store was later sold to Norbert Wabnig in the late ‘70s, who carried out the Colonel’s dream for a cozy, old-fashioned shop grounded in family and great food.
The Cheese Store offers high-end cheeses from around the world, exotic truffles, and charcuterie boards. They even have a “Cheese of the Month” club for frequent customers and are currently holding virtual wine and cheese tastings with special guests. Catering is provided by their special event coordinator and chief sommelier, Erik Kelley, who can plan the menu for any occasion - intimate dinners, celebrations, or corporate events.
