5 Fragrance Essentials from Dover Street Parfums Market

Dover Street Parfum Market opened a new storefront at 11 bis rue Elzévir 75003 in Paris.

Nestled within the quaint Rue Elzévir in Paris, behind a classic black façade lives the newest Dover Street Parfums Market, which opened on October 2.

Step inside the minimalist space, the walls are not decorated and there are not display materials in sight, and wander through a maze of substantial pillars. Inside each pillar is a cut-out in the shape of an egg, inside each egg cut-out are several shelves and upon each shelf is a product. The new market welcomes a range of beauty products from a Gucci fragrance collection to non-binary scents and even a charcoal toothpaste.

While there are several amazing options housed at the new location, here are five outstanding products that we at V are most excited about.

The Alchemist’s Garden Collection by Gucci

The seven scents in this collection were blended by perfumer Alberto Morillas in alignment with Alessandro Michele’s creative direction. Each fragrance is infused with floral notes which are exemplified in the packaging where each bottle is decorated with a flower pattern. The Dover Street Parfums Market website highlights “A Winter Melody,” which has notes of bergamot and rose.

The Parco Palladiano Collection by Bottega Veneta

Imagine the Palladian garden during springtime. The floral notes wafting through the newly warm air. This fragrance collection by Bottega Venetta transports all who smell to this magical place.

The Temporary Tattoo Kit by MAC and Comme des Garçons

Sometimes an outfit or a current vibe needs more than just chic accessories to push it over the edge. It requires a cool tattoo but that requires commitment. Don’t fear, with the temporary tattoo kit, born out of a collaboration between MAC and Comme des Garçons, you can have a tattoo whenever you want – and remove it. If you’re interested in this product specifically, be sure to stop into the store by October 13.

The Non-Binary Essence by Suigeneris

Lower the boundaries of scent with this non-binary essence. It blurs the lines between male or female designated perfumes and makes a fragrance for everyone. The brand’s website boasts that wearing this scent is “a declaration of freedom.”

 All Collections by Comme des Garçons

And of course, all of the fragrance collections by Comme des Garçons will be available at the Paris location. All of the bottles from each collection host classic scents and double as works of art with their bright red heart design (Play Red) or the realistic texture of the Concrete bottles.
