Perfume Shopping Around The World

This is a collection of links to posts from various blogs that cover perfume shopping in different cities around the world.

Please contact me at flittersniffer @ gmail dot com if you’ve written or come across an article you would like to see included in this list, or if you are interested in setting up a similar ("mirror") page on your own blog.

A big thank you is due to Undina of Undina's Looking Glass, whose bright idea it was, and who undertook to compile this page and help all the participating bloggers keep it updated!  The other host blogs are currently:

Perfumed Letters
All I am - a redhead

We hope our perfume shopping "directory" will prove to be a useful resource for the perfume community, and the more comprehensive its coverage, the better.  So if you like it, do please spread the word. 

Asali (a contributing writer for several blogs) has shared with me a link to the blog that specializes in gathering information about shopping in different places. If you need just a list of shops/boutiques in a specific city you might find Your Perfume Guide useful.

The list is organized by country and then by city. City names are links, and if there is more than one link for a city a [partial] article title is linked. Blog name and published/last modified date (in mm/dd/yy format) are in parentheses, and follow the American convention of putting the month first.
