Shopping in Paris Sephora
Sephora is an international favorite for beauty supply product shopping, even in Paris.
Even though it is a chain store, Sephora will receive all of the newest perfume and make-up products from French companies prior to their release in the United States and other countries. The Champs-Elysees branch is the largest, and mostly considered the chicest of the outposts located in Paris. Another favorite is the branch located in the mall beneath the Louvre.
Shopping at Sephora Paris
Strolling Paris’ grand boulevard, the Champs-Elysees, you’ll come to Sephora, an incredible perfume and beauty products store. Grab a basket and follow your nose and eyes. You can buy famous brands like Chanel, Clarins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, LaRoche, Lanvin, Lancome, Serge Lutens, Shiseido, Rubenstein, Yves Saint Laurent, and the list continues. The Sephora brand is also very popular as they are considered to be high quality products available at a lower price point.
Glide down the ramp into a vast hall of cosmetics and perfumes (open daily until midnight). It’s thoughtfully laid out, and the entry hall is lined with the new products. All perfumes have a tester bottle along side the product inviting you to take a whiff. There is a treasure trove of make-up too.
The staff here helps shoppers explore their needs. Interviewing you, they understand what you’re after and are very generous with samples until you find the scent of your dreams. If you wish, they will assemble a list of products to match. They help you find the perfect make-up, and will give you a complimentary make-over, with no need for an appointment for this service.
