Nose: The Smell Of Success
Good morning everyone!
Another beautiful day of Spring is upon us in Paris and I have to share my experience at Nose with you. Get ye there, poste haste as it is olfactory experience you will not soon forget. I spent three hours speaking with the president of Nose, Nicolas Cloutier and he introduced me to a new way of thinking of scent, of choosing scent and recognizing high quality ingredients.
I discovered brands that I’d never heard of but did not need to smell to find the right one for me and my tastes. Hows that? Nose is unique in that there is a system that pinpoints five scents that you may like based on the perfume you’re currently wearing, what you wore a year ago, etc., this is all done due to answers you supply via their in-store or online questionaire. My first scents consisted of two lovely scents from Diptyque and ones I’d never heard of and really blew me away.
What I loved about this was the intimate introduction to scent. I didn’t need to smell each and every perfume that caught my eye. This is not Sephora. What Nose uniquely does is pinpoint the notes and scents that attract you, that excite your senses and based on these find a scent or scents among the hundreds of high quality and revered fragrances on hand.
Thank you, Nicolas and much success to you and the rest of the team at Nose. I’ll be back!
