Since perfumer Ernest Daltroff founded the brand in Paris in 1904, Caron has been heralded for its bold, femme-fatale scents. At this Art Deco–style boutique, each of its perfumes can be purchased in pre-packaged bottles ($115–$700) as an eau de toilette or eau de parfum, or as a so-called fountain fragrance (.25oz $115, 100ml $520) in pure perfume form. With the latter option, your selection will be dispensed from one of the giant Baccarat crystal decanters into a bottle with a ground-glass stopper, which is then tied with a gold braid and wrapped in polka-dot packaging that has remained unchanged since the 1920s. Popular choices include the leather-, iris- and cedar-inflected Tabac Blond, created in 1919 as a tribute to scandalous flappers who smoked; Narcisse Noir, whose accords of orange flower and sandalwood were inspired by a movie based on Rumer Godden’s novel Black Narcissus; and the spicy, peppery and clovey Poivre, which added heat to Caron’s famous floral heart.
