3 (Almost) Obscure Places to Go While in Paris

Annick Goutal

A glamorous boudoir meets apothecary, Annick Goutal actually started this perfumery in the 80’s. The bottles themselves are beautiful works of art, something I could see Jean Harlow or Marilyn Monroe keeping on their nightstands. Even if you do not find something for yourself (which I think is impossible), you will certainly find a gift worth checking your luggage for.

La Musee de La Mode et du Textile

We all know that you must visit the Louvre but if you are a true fashion lover, this a must-see. When I visited, there was an amazing Vionnet exhibit that showcased tons of her gowns. There is also a permanent toy exhibit spanning the 20th century. If you love the arts and/or you are a kid at heart, make time to spend a few hours here.

Le Pub Saint Germain


Located in the trendy Left Bank, Le Pub Saint Germain is perfect for a late night cocktail with a date or a group of friends. A discerning person I know even told me it was the best Grasshopper he ever had, which is proof that this place can mix anything, even the rare old-school drinks.
