Renowned for its perfume industry, France is one of the top places to purchase your next fragrance. Breathe in the delicate notes of Rose de mai, deep wooded notes of sandalwood and patchouli.

During your perfume hunt, you will come across world-famous brands, such as Maison Guerlain, and smaller French perfumeries that are equally as fragrant. Visit the Fragonard Perfume Museum on Rue Scribe for a wide array of perfumes with different notes and styles. For another store with exquisite scents, stop at Parfums de Rosine for delicate rose-noted perfumes.
