About
The Parisian Jovoy boutique, a forerunner to rare perfumes in Paris, chose to reside among rue Castiglione's arches, steps away from Place Vendôme. The legendary address is where amateurs of niche perfumes, and anyone who dreams of myriad perfume experiences, gather. The passionate come here to absorb a different world of fragrances, less well known, more artisanal, more demanding, and yet still accessible to all thanks to a wide range of prices. Over 100 brands and 1,500 references from around the world are found in this unique Parisian treasure chest that is part curiosity cabinet, part art gallery, and magnificently decorated in red and black. An expert team of fragrance lovers is ready to accompany those who are on a scented quest to create the perfect olfactory match. All visitors may also of course explore at their own pace, following their nose and inspiration. More than a boutique, Jovoy's shop is a premier venue of Parisian art de vivre.

We went to this boutique in search of the perfume I bought last time I was in Paris, as I cannot find it in the states. Eleanor encouraged us to try something new. With her exceptional knowledge, she guided us to perfumes we had never seen, most of which were outstanding. We found the most unbelievable fragrances we have ever smelled. I would ABSOLUTELY go to this shop for an unbelievable shopping experience!!
Thank you Eleanore for your time and exceptional service.

As a collector of fragrances, this store is just too much. Niche brands that I had never heard of, as well as most of those I had. Great staff, patient and helpful. A must see for any fragrance lover.

What a blessing to have this store in Paris with unique and rare perfumes from all over the world. And I mean perfumes that are enchanting and hard to find. They have so many that it's almost impossible to choose, so you have to come back again and again.
I recommend the Amouage Memoir and Interlude, the Heeley Agarwood, the Min New York Barrel and Moon Dust, the Nasomatto Absinth

Was completely ignored upon entering the store and none of the sales people attempted to engage with me.
So there was no service to properly judge, but the number one thing I expect when shopping anywhere is some form of interaction. Disgusting

I am very Picky when it comes to my perfume and Jovoy, exceeded my expectations. From the door I expressed how I only like sweet smelling perfumes and the sales associate kept that in mind. She was very patient with me while going over all of the perfumes. I went in with the expectations of buying one bottle and left with 3. My purpose of the trip was to discover perfume exclusive to Paris and I accomplished my goal. A great store!!!

I have visited Jovoy after much research on my short trip to Paris. I wanted a special fragrance, nothing too commercial. The sales assistant with a long hair was kind and attentive enough to identify exactly what I wanted. I am very satisfied of my purchase

The Jovoy Paris - Parfums Rares butique is exellently located on the Rue Castiglioe in the 1e arrondissement in Paris. A stone's throw away from Place Vendome & Jardin Tuileries, it is a haven for all things olfactory. I have never seen such a vast collection of perfumes from all over the world under one roof. The staff are extremely knowledgable and friendly. Lovely place to get the most amazing (and uncommon) scents and to also get an education on perfumes!

I stumbled into Jovoy with about 15 minutes to pick up a perfume for my wife. The store was empty and the nicest sales person helped me. I tried to use adjectives to describe what might work. The variety is amazing. But if you are buying a gift and don't have the recipient with you, the store will work with you. No attitude or hautiness. An island of tranquility and chill. No fancy perfume terms. Perfect English spoken. It was a great shopping experience.

I wanted to bring home on the plane perfumes that would not get tossed out by the airport -- so I went for 70mL bottles and less -- 100mL was over 3 ounces. Prices were relatively high, but the shopping experience was great. I found two for about 85 euros each. Was very pleased. Across the street from the Westin Vendome.

Went here 30 minutes before the store closes but we had a wonderful time here with the of the great guy who helps us until they closed the store and my wife bought one for her and Elysium for me, with 5 more samples of those we didn’t buy.

If you're looking for mass-market products, go to Sephora or Galleries Lafayette. This shop sells elegant, more rare fragrances that you don't see all over the place. Good service, and they even offered to assist with the tax rebate form on my last purchase. Dropped by this shop in 2014, and 2016 for bottles of Jacques Fath's Green Water.
