Amid the antique shops and vintage jewelry stores on Royal Street is another ode to past pleasures. Resembling a Victorian parlor full of potions, this perfumery dates to 1931, and has been run by subsequent generations of the Hové family ever since. The sweet and sultry scents hit you as soon as you open the doors, and they all have fabulously kitsch names, such as Mantrap and A Kiss in the Dark. They are probably best known, though, for their vetiver scent, one that will conjure up heady memories of the city no matter where it eventually gets transported.
