  1. Thanks for posting this. I can say that I am lucky enough to have one of the stores, Coqui Coqui located in my town. It is a beautiful shop and the prices are very reasonable…as it comes to perfume. And it is unique, especially for Mexico. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Since tourism of any sort outside of the country will be unlikely until next year I plan to visit our very own little perfume destination, the Burren Perfumery. Small but lovely.

  3. I would absolutely like to enjoy some perfume tourism right now! A visit to Grasse is on my bucket list and I want to go back to London and spend a day in the perfume section of Harrod’s!.

    I’d be happy just to go to NYC and sniff perfumes at Saks and Bergdorf’s. I also want to go to Vegas just because there are tons of great perfume stores there and a big Guerlain boutique. I would be in heaven! I have no interest at all in gambling, but eating good food and sniffing perfumes are always at the top of my ‘most desired’ list! And it would be nice to see the Grand Canyon finally….

    • I’ve been to Las Vegas once, for a conference; then my husband flew out to join me for the weekend because it was our 25th anniversary and, as I told him, unlikely I’ll ever go again, lol! We saw the Beatles Love show with Cirque du Soleil, it was just wonderful. Had lunch at a couple of the most chi-chi restaurants, which makes them more affordable, and did the early bird menu at another — not hard because our bodies were still on East Coast time! I wasn’t chasing down perfume at that point, though, so didn’t seek out the stores. Maybe I’ll have to go back after all! And Cirque du Soleil is reopening, so I could see Beatles Love again, which I would totally do.
