Personalized Paris


There is nothing better than having something personalized! Imagine coming to Paris and creating that perfect one-of-a-kind item to bring home. We have found three very unique spots where you can do just that.

Our first, and most luxurious, personalized item comes from Francis Kurkdjian, whose bespoke perfumes are more than enough to seduce your nostrils. Their collection of perfumes use the purest and rarest essential oils and their attention to every detail produces a rarely matched level of sophistication and elegance.

Not enough to tempt you?

Maison Francis Kurkdjian also offers custom-made fragrances for a private clientele. Mr. Kurkdjian himself will work with you to create a personalized scent that evokes the memories and emotions you desire. Your fragrance ingredients will remain confidential with Mr. Kurkdijan and his employees who vows to keep it confidential to preserve the uniqueness of your new scent. Your new perfume will come in two engraved 60ml vials and this slice of luxury starts ranges from 8 000 – 10 000 euros.

If this is a bit too rough on the wallet, head over the La Cerise sur le Chapeau, where Cerise and her team can create a custom-made hat for you in 30 minutes! In their workshop in the 6th arrondissement, you can choose from five hat models in a vast spectrum of colors. You then choose the color of the ribbon and the loop detail, head out to do some shopping in the area, and in about 30 minutes you can pick up your personalized hat.

These hats run at 145 – 190 euro depending on style and you can order certain styles online as well. Not bad for your own personalized slice of Parisian fashion eh?

If you are still looking for something lower on the price scale, pop into Pixel Bar where you can grab one of the classic cocktails or you can create your own. Choose your favorite alcohol, liquor, a juice and a “special ingredient” from their list and voila! If the bartender likes your creation, he will put it on the menu. They will also keep your recipe in their books so that your friends can pop in and order your personalized cocktail.
