Editions de Parfums
Founded ten years ago by master pefumer Frederick Malle, this perfumerie on Rue du Mont-Thabor keep its emphasis on the fragrance. Malle is the grandson of Dior Perfumes founder Serge Heftler and packages each of his 17 fragrances with a biography and picture of its designer. With a half-dozen outposts opened in just a decade, Malle's emphasis on composition appears to be paying off. Editions de Parfums' designs have been called "wearable art" and easily fetch $100-350 per bottle. This stylish location features framed photography of his "noses" and pieces from the perfumer's art collection.
The Paris flagship will ship three free spray samples of its fragrances for 20 Euros shipping charge.
