Perfume Shopping around the World

This is a collection of links to posts from different blogs that cover perfume shopping in different cities all around the world.

Perfume Around TheGlobe

Asali (The Sounds of Scent) has shared with me a link to the blog that specializes in gathering information about shopping in different places. If you need just a list of shops/boutiques in a specific city you might find Your Perfume Guide useful.

Please contact me if you’ve written or come across an article you want to include in this list or if you want to host a similar page (I’ll send you an html file with the current list and will be providing updates several times a year).

If you like the idea please spread the word. I have no commercial interest in this project I just think it might be useful for the community.

The list is organized by country and then by city. City names are links, if there is more than one link for a city [partial] article titles are used as links. In parentheses are blog names and published/last modified dates (in mm/dd/yy format).
