My Paris Purchases

There is so much shopping to do in Paris. Here are a few of the things I brought home with me on my most recent trip!

Juste un Baiser by Fragonard

I have been thinking about this eau de toilette for over a year now! I first smelled Juste un Baiser (Just a Kiss) last year when I was in Eze.  I'm not sure why I didn't buy it then, but I was sure to snatch up a bottle on this trip.  It has a very sweet, youthful smell.  I love it!

A fusion of mandarin, pear and violet on a heart of blackberry and wild strawberry, leaving behind an imprint of vanilla, amber and musk. Sweet, fruity and voluptuous, a fragrance imbued with charm and impertinence, poised between innocence and a bewildering feminity.

Longchamp Pilage Bag

I had planned to buy a Pilage bag from Longchamp while in Paris, so while discovering rue Saint-Honoré I popped into the store.  I was ecstatic when I found the bag I had been searching for all last year.   The bag I would have killed for.  And there it was! The Eiffel Tower Pilage.  I bought it without hesitation. 

I originally bought the purse in white but decided to return it in favor of the graphite color.  I was afraid the white would get dirty and the graphite was just a lot more practical.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

The Marc by Marc Jacobs store in Paris is great.  It is the perfect place to buy accessories at very reasonable prices.  I bought myself a pair of black Wellington boots and a purple Marc by Marc Jacobs tote.

The Petit Trianon & Queen' Hamlet Visitor's Guide

I love Versailles.  The gardens, the palace and, most of all, Marie Antoinette's estate.  In particular I love the Queen's Hamlet. I bought this guidebook to fully enjoy and remember all of the surroundings!

More pictures of Versailles to come soon!

Mariage Frères Tea

I am a huge fan of Earl Grey tea which is why I bought some Impreial Earl Grey tea from Mariage Frères. 

Where are your favorite places to shop in Paris?
