Concierge.com's insider take:
A grande dame on the French perfumery scene (founded in 1926) and one of the rare operations to remain family-owned, Fragonard has morphed into a modern fragrance contender thanks to the efforts of third-generation directors Agnès and Françoise Costa. In addition to producing several lines of perfumes, home fragrances, scented soaps, and skincare products, the company has made a specialty of very affordable and distinctively French gift items, from tableware to makeup pouches as well as bohemian Parisienne basics such as semiprecious jewelry, jackets, and scarves sourced in India. The Rue Scribe boutique is located within a Napoleon III—era hôtel particulier that is home to a perfumery museum (entry is free, and products are sold at cost); other outposts can be found along main arteries in St.-Germain-des-Prés and the Marais, as well as on Rue St.-Honoré.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 9 am to 6 pm, Sundays 9 am to 5 pm.
