“Horrible!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

I went to buy a DKNY watch as a new year gift. staff will try to force you to reach their perfume/ makeup station and buy what so ever!!!!
after 1 month, the watch stopped working and one of the joints kept falling off !!!!! I took it back with the bell and guess what? 200 Aed for the battrey and not their problem to fix the loosen joint!!!
Thanks Paris Gallery... i will never step back those fancy shops.

“Average china made products glorified in expensive showrooms”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

This store has nothing special, nothing here is exclusive, you can usually find everything here in small shops in souks, the souks might not keep them polished, well lit, displayed on large showcases, but you wont end up paying ten folds the prices in paris gallery

Yes you really can find French brand names here. Posh stores located in the finer malls.

“Empty of people. Full of stock, and very grand.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

If you need your choice of high-end cosmetics, perfumes and accessories such as bags and sunglasses (in some stores), Paris Gallery is a one-stop shop. Some stores are so huge you think they must be whole department stores so it's very funny to learn they only sell basically cosmetics. It may not be the cheapest, but it's much of a muchness for the prices of high end things in Abu Dhabi anyway so you might as well go to a 'luxury' store where they have the full complement of brands and lots of new perfumes. Paris Gallery has choice, is huge, is comfortable and grand, if the experience is important to you. Not sure how long they can last though, as on my dozen trips to 5 different stores. I have always been almost the only person in the whole huge store, apart from about 50 staff who leap on you like they are very lonely. The one on 26th Street down near the Corniche in it's own tower is very impressive as it has these extremely exclusive Arabic oud/perfume concessions with insanely beautiful fit-outs, worth having a quick look at just for those.
