La Note Parisienne: The Olfactive Identities of Paris
Each of Paris’s 20 arrondissements has its own distinctive identity,from the historic monuments of the 1st to the chic boutiques of the 6th to the hipster cafés of the 11th. But how to capture the feeling of these neighborhoods in a scent? This is what Louis Aka and Florent Martin, founders of La Note Parisienne, set out to do. The scent of each candle or room spray was developed like a wearable fragrance, with top notes, heart notes, and base notes, ensuring that each scent would tell its given arrondissement’s story.
