Historic Perfume and Soap Shop

Walking down a narrow side street near the Opera I discovered this perfume shop dating from 1720. Oriza L. Legrand made perfumes, face creams, and rice powder for Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. The perfumes, formulated in the late 1800s, have Art Nouveau labels with romantic names like Reve d’Ossian, Horizon, Deja le Printemps, Jardins d’Armide, and Relique d’Amour.

Scented candles had some captivating combinations including La Treve des Confiseurs, which had notes of orange jam, cinnamon, honey, and cedar and Fin comme l’Ambre had notes of amber, patchouli, musk, and vanilla.

The shop also features a selection of delicate silk patterned bow ties for men.
