Concierge.com's insider take:
Housed in the former town house where Coco kept an apartment, just off the Place Vendôme, the original Chanel boutique is still the best; for Chanel-holics, it's a visit to the source itself. Coco kept a "daytime" apartment in the building while living at the Ritz, just across the street. More intimate—and less "branded"—than other Chanel shops, the space is an invitation to imagine what it was like to be the chicest woman alive…and to buy a handsomely priced souvenir.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm.
