Nose

Nose, as its name may suggest, is a store only focused on perfume, and it specialises in creating personalised scents. It has a range of more than 50 brands of rare fragrances, cosmetics and home fragrances.

Merci

Located in an old wallpaper factory, Merci is everyone’s favourite concept/general store in Paris. You’ll find everything here from art postcards, pet accessories and patterned notebooks to homeware, kitchenware and cool European clothing brands. The space has three different cafés where you can get lunch or grab a quick coffee. Our favourite is the literary café (with over 10,000 books making up its second-hand collection). The best reason to shop here? All of its profits go to charity.

Montaigne Market

Situated on the well known Avenue Montaigne between brands such as Marni and Fendi, Montaigne Market is a favourite amongst the fashion-set in Paris. It is one of the most acclaimed multi-brand boutiques in the capital with over 60 international designers stocked alongside lesser-known contemporary brands.

The Broken Arm

Located in the heart of Le Marais, The Broken Arm is a store founded by three fashion and lifestyle bloggers. Inspired by Scandinavian design, the store is stylish and minimalist with carefully selected designers that match their unpretentious approach to fashion. Think Raf Simons sneakers and Acne leather jackets with structured handbags and leather boots on show. If you can’t afford anything in the store have a coffee and cake at their café next door, which is equally charming.

Sept Cinq

Sept Cinq is a small lifestyle boutique with a very specific purpose: to sell Parisian products, exclusively. They exist to promote local designers and it’s the type of place you could find the perfect birthday present – a hand-painted notebook, a beautiful art book or a hand-crafted candle. Worth going if you are in Pigalle but not necessarily a shop to make the trip for.

Kilo Shop

At Kilo Shop, one of the best vintage shops in Paris, the prices are based on weight. Probably better for a summer shopping session, but still affordable with heavier items like bags, coats and shoes. Prices are very reasonable – expect to pay around €40 for a leather jacket. There are two locations in Paris.

Shakespeare and Company

This little English bookshop with thousands of books, which was featured in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, is a real Rive Gauche treasure. Granted, one that the whole world knows about, but still a must see in Paris.

Frenchtrotters

With two locations in Marais and the 11th, there’s no excuse to miss this quintessential Parisian store. Housing brands such as Acne, Carven, Mackintosh and their own in-house label, FrenchTrotters is where you can master that Parisian look – no makeup, tattered jeans, bandana-patterned blouse and the perfect snakeskin boots.

L’ECLAIREUR

Located behind a huge black door, only Parisians with a keen sense of fashion know this address since there is no other indication that it exists. Considered the first concept store within the city, L’ECLAIREUR sets new trends with its collection of creative pieces. More than a store, it’s a place fed by emotions and history, a real world on its own. The interior design itself is worth a visit.

Des Petits Hauts

The sweetest of the sweet, this is exactly what you would imagine when trying to conjure up an absolutely adorable, oh-so-French shop. All blush pinks and creams and the softest cashmere, this is your one-stop-shop to stocking up on Parisienne-approved pullovers, delicate camisoles dusted with stars and pompom-adorned straw baskets. They have adorable gifting items and home accessories; we’re huge fans of their playful birthday cards, sparkly drawing pins and pastel stationary.
