In my last post I shared with you the “secret place” where the French people and informed tourists buy the best variety of beauty products, food supplements and other ingenious health ideas in Paris. (click here to read the article).
The Pharmacie Monge is undoubtedly the best place for you to buy all the latest products, with the added bonus of knowing that you will be paying the lowest prices in Paris, this coupled with a very welcoming service for us visitors – the store has an expert team of staff who speak most major languages – Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, English, Korean, Arabic…
The success of this “pharmacy” is so huge that they recently opened a new additional store across the street, a space dedicated to perfumes and make-up!
The new store follows the same philosophy of its “maison mère”: with thousands of product references, all the big brands with unbeatable prices, and impeccable staff!
Here, beyond all the well known luxury brands like Clarins, Chanel, Dior, Sisley, YSL, Chloé, Lanvin, Caron, La Prairie …you will also find a selection of rare and exclusive products…
These rare perfumes that you may have fond memories of, are now almost impossible to find, sometimes they are not even been produced anymore in commercial quantities. In Parfumerie Monge, they are arranged on shelves, ready for you take them home..
The old lines from ST Dupont, 1881, Armani, Bvlgari, Balenciaga, Versace, Serge Lutens (one that I particularly love)!
There is also a very well stocked men’s section with current scents but also a selection of rare perfumes and creams from brands such as Mauboussin, Drakkar, Carven Man, Carolina Herrera, Caron, Burberry, Versace … well, heaven! You also find top of the line hair products as Furterer, Carita or Leonor Grey…
And if you are desire to have a “flash” make-up, there will always be someone to leave you even more beautiful … the store has a special corner where you can receive a personalied make up that allows you to test the latest makeup launches …
All at the command of sympathetic Elisa Noui, a French girl who speaks perfect Portuguese, like any Brazilian!
Top Team! Elise Noui, Renata, Maria Cresp e Sylvie Fernandes ….
To my surprise and happiness, on my visit, I received a bag full of wonderful products!
Inside this magic bag, creams and make-up such as Skinceutical, Chanel, Carita, Shiseido, Furterer, Lâncome … All my favourites that I love for years !!A place to absolutely visit on your next passage through Paris!
Last tip: in a hurry and don’t have much time? You can try their new online mail order service – you can order your shopping list and receive the goods directly at the hotel! How cool is that?
Now you no longer have an excuse not to succumb to the charm and facilities of this magic Perfumery!
