Thinking of Paris and’Best French Fragrances’ not ‘Best Friends Forever’ although I think I would be very happy to call Paris a BFF.
There are many, many superb French fragrances and each one is special to those who wear them so my small list is simply those fragrances and perfume houses in Paris that I love.
I have always adored scent – on me, on others, in the home and I could not imagine a life without perfume.
Best French Fragrance
*Les Salons du Palais Royale Shiseido Serge Lutens (Fleur d’Oranger and Lys are my picks)
142 Galerie de Valois – 24 Rue de Valois
Jardin du Palais Royale
*Frederic Malle (Lys Mediterranee, Le Parfum de Therese and Vetiver for the boys)
Editions de Parfums

*Annick Goutal (my longest French fragrance love; Gardenia Passion)

*Cire Trudon (Odalisque and Spiritus Sancti)
*Diptyque (Figuer and Feu du Bois)
If you are in Paris and there is time and perfume is your thing please take a look; I promise you won’t be disappointed, xv.
