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.
