You need to see this place to really get it. Liquides Paris looks every inch a bar, with its brass counter, mirrors on black-wood walls, high stools and bottles lining the shelves – although rather than alcohol these bottles are filled with perfume – and not any old perfume. The store offers artisan-made scents, all created by independent perfumers rarely known to the public.
They include Parfum d’Empire, the highly-prized New York brand Odin and creations by the young French perfumer David Benedek, BDK – all of which the manager Vincent Haustant takes great pleasure in introducing to you as part of your quest for that ultimate “this is me!” moment. A thrilling journey through the world of scent.
