After fashion, perfumery is the great Parisian speciality.

Think Paris, think perfume. But you might be tired of seeing the same old names. With black perfume bottles and enchanting essential oils, Kilian Hennessy has conquered his public with his brand By Kilian and its fragrances Oeuvres Noires or Arabian Nights.

French perfumer Francis Kurkdjian presents an amazing world of refined scents. Historic perfumers each have a boutique: Guerlain, Serge Lutens and Annick Goutal.

The concept store Jovoy Paris showcases little-known and new perfumes in the Louvre district. A few steps away, in the Galerie Vivienne, Binet-Papillon Parfums invites you to discover its Made in France fragrances in its boudoir.

The Italian eau-de-cologne brand Acqua di Parma owns its first French boutique in rue des Francs Bourgeois. At Corner du Labo, at Colette, veritable perfume laboratory assistants invite shoppers to take part in the creation of their own personal bespoke fragrance. And more delightful places to discover include: L’Artisan Parfumeur, Nicolaï, les Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, Diptyque (the famous Parisian candle and perfume house), and ‘olfactory libertinism’ at the État Libre d’Orange boutique.
