|La Mûre favorite (19 cours Franklin Roosevelt, 69006)|
La Mûre favorite is a bit off the beaten trail. Combine it with a walk to France’s largest urban green space, the beautiful Tête d’or, so named for a golden head of Christ buried, as legend has it, somewhere in the park. This independent shop has its own stock of treasures: L’Artisan parfumeur, Byrédo, Killian, Miller Harris, Parfumérie générale, Serges Lutens and more. The welcoming, no-pressure, atmosphere and knowledgeable sales staff are plus.
L’Ateleir parfumé at 27 rue Tupin is another good sport for niche sampling.
