I am huge perfume fan but I don't like to wear scents that other people are wearing. In other words, I prefer not to go to the Nordstrom counter for my unique scent. Last year, I was in Paris and went to a perfume concept store where they find out the types of perfumes you like and then take you through a process to find a niche scent that you can't buy in US Stores and they matched me to the most beautiful scent I own! So, I just feel like people need to know who are into perfume that this store is out there! Obviously, you don't get to work with a specialist remotely BUT they do have on line profiling and will still match you to niche perfumes and then for less 20 USD, you can get samples of 5 to see if you want to buy one. The shop is called Nose and it opened a few years ago in Paris. I am totally in love with it and the scent I got was developed by one of the founders, it's a line called Linari. And no one ever smells like me and always asks me what I'm wearing!
I have a blog, and here is an article about them with some photos and links. BTW, I have no affiliation with them at all - they don't know me and I don't know them. I visited the store once and was there for a couple hours last year. I just think the concept is GREAT and I saw so many extraordinary perfumes and smelled some really beautiful scents when I was there so I want to share. http://abeautifulwhim.com/nose-niche-paris-perfume-shop/beauty/
