Perfume in Paris

Perfume in Paris

Perfume-Bottles.jpg
Perfume and Paris are synonomous. I love French perfume, and now wear it exclusively. My fragrance of choice is Poème by Lancôme. Last year I bought a lovely perfume by Fragonard, Rose de Mai, and I was very disappointed when it ran out well before my projected trip. I bought my daughter a whole selection of Fragonard perfumes. Her favourite was Soleil.

 

Fragonard

As well as their boutique, there is a most interesting Perfume Museum (Musée du Parfum) one can visit.

9 rue Scribe 75009, Paris

Getting there: Opéra (lines 3, 7, 8)

Opening hours: Mon-Sat 9 am to 6 pm; Sun and holidays: 9 am to 5 pm

Caron

So exclusive they don’t have opening hours on their website; I think you have to call if you want to buy! They have perfume fountains where you can bottle your own perfume. That would be a sight to see.
