Paris by Scent – Recent Published Work

Gourmet Traveller Copyright Carla Coulson

I recently shot a story for Gourmet Traveller about Paris Perfumers which is out now in the latest addition . What a treat, it’s a world I inhabit whenever I get a chance so this job meant going to some of my favourite places in Paris.

Paris and perfume are the perfect match. The ultimate feminine necessity and in Paris buying perfume is an experience you never want to miss. Not only for the beautiful perfumes but for the wonderful ambience where they sell their heavenly scents.

To catch the full story you can download the Gourmet Traveller app or get a copy on the newstand in Australia right now.

If you are in Paris and can check out the perfumers here are some of my favourite scents:

Un Lys by Serge Lutens – Fresh white lily, wonderful for the summer

Le Chevrefeuille by Annick Goutal – Sweet lovely Honeysuckle, j’adore

Eau d’Hadrian by Annick Goutal – A delicious citrus perfume that I always go back to.

Carnal Flower by Frederic Malle – More tuberose than one has ever put in a bottle..

Be sweet

  1. I remember the first time I slipped in to the Serge Lutens boutique in the Palais Royal, I felt like I had fallen, Alic-like into a jewelry box! It is still such a magic place for me and what a great idea for a story.

    Have a wonderful week Carla! And you might like my current post–it is about when my honey and I shot an ad for Apple in Botswana–those were the days! ;)
