This 400-square-foot boutique showcases the French fragrance brand’s full 40-plus scent collection, along with soaps, lotions, and shaving gear. Since its founding in 1760, the storied perfumer has scented a host of celebrities and public figures, including Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill, JFK, Barbara Bush, and Michelle Obama. Popular fragrances include Spring Flower for women and Green Irish Tweed for men. This is the family-owned company’s third stand-alone boutique worldwide (after Paris and Dubai), and it’s opulently adorned with a white marble interior and colorful glass bottles glinting in the front windows. There are also travel accessories—a 1.7-oz. shatterproof atomizer, for instance—and a host of pretty home accents, like hand-poured beeswax candles and ecofriendly room sprays.Extra
