    Default Brussels-Belgium.

    Most of you already know that I work parttime in a multi-brand niche perfumery called Senteurs d'Ailleurs (Sd'A for short).
    Ofcourse I work there but in all honesty I have to say it's one of the most beautiful independent perfume shop of its kind in Europe. ;D
    Mr Donie, his wife and their daughter created the concept now more than 7 years ago. Something was missing in Brussels for people who were getting tired of the ordinary offering and wanted something special. So they opened their first smaller store which had a French/Provence decor with brands like L'Occitane, CSP, Esteban and Diptyque. Success was instant and after a few years and the addition of more high-end brands Senteurs d'Ailleurs needed a larger more luxurious space. Mr Donie insists that the success was built not only because of the offering but premierly because of the service. People who work at Senteurs (like me lol) need to be passionate about fragrances and have the knowledge that goes with it + being extremely friendly.

    I've visited Senteurs, and I can attest that Cedric is not lying. It's one of the best assorted niche perfumeries I've ever seen, and the people there (including our very own Cedric of course) are extremely friendly. The place is incredibly beautiful and elegant, both in terms of the products on the shelves, and of its ambiance as a whole. Senteurs is a distinguished place with a very pleasant, ''non-threatening'' environment. An absolute rarity in this trade.

    I am just writing to say that Cedric gave us all a fabulous address to visit when in Brussles. The Scenteurs is probably one of the finest perfume shops in Europe, and probably in the world. When I am in Brussles, tyhat is my first and often t[he only stop - the most pleasant experience! The next time I am there, will ask for Cedric in person!

    Well from September I'll be living in Brussels as part of my degree. I'm licking my lips - or whatever the olfactory equivalent - in anticipation!

    I'm fairly new to BaseNotes, but not to perfume... :P I live in Zaventem and I had the chance to visit Senteurs d'Ailleurs last week, where I asked for a couple of samples to make up my mind (SL Féminité du Bois and Nuit de Cellophane... Two completely different perfumes that I was curious about and that I will purchase shortly there). I don't know the name of the person who attended me (a totally charming and nice man) but it definetly made my day!!! Every time I ask for samples at other stores, they don't even bother to look for them, so this was a nice surprise taking also into account I didn't even make a purchase...

    All this to rave about SdA and to tell everyone to please visit the store (I wish I worked there but I don't, alas... ).

    Andrea

    PS: In case you were wondering, FdB will be my next SL choice and, of course, I will go back to Senteurs...

    A new niche boutique opened recently in Brussels (not far from Les Senteurs d'Ailleurs):

    Absolut'ly
    Galerie Louise 32
    (opposite the Conrad hotel)

    Some of the brands the boutique carries:

    Micallef
    Montale
    Nejma & Pascal Morabito
    Divine
    Costume Nationale
    biehl. parfumkunstwerke
    Fragonard
    Escentric Molecules

    On a less cheerful note, Kaori boutique is out of business

    So sorry for Kaori...

    But, hey! We get a new store!!! I'm dying to sample some Montales... :P

    Thanks for the heads-up!!

    Came here to do a quick post about Absolut'ly, but mammamia was here before me... I have been going there a few times since the store opened, and always found the visit to be pleasant. Paula and her assistant are very nice and friendly...

    Oh and since recently they stock Bond N°9 as well.

    Default Re: Brussels-Belgium.

    Last month I've visited Senteurs d'Ailleurs and was pleased with all the perfume collections. I also came to Absolut'ly and was able to sniff most of the lines from By Killian. I only got 1 compliment sample when buying MFK frag in SdA. On the other hand, I got 6 samples (Lorenzo V, Bonds, and Fragonard) when buying Nejma in Absolut'ly.

    I think there is another place that worth visit in Brussels. Located in Rue Archimede 5, Beauty House is where you can find Amouage line.

    I know this is probably a shot in the dark, but does anyone know where in Brussels (or Belgium) I can find the Bond No. 9 line of perfumes? I've looked in most of the places posted here.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Ahhhh I remember buying my first niche fragrance (a Diptyque) at Les Senteurs, I lived on rue de la Concorde just round the corner. It was a treat to go in there. The range of Guerlain was breathtaking!!! I live in Cornwall now, a perfume void!!! Ido wish I could go back now armed with my new fragrance appreciation! (interestingly Guerlain is missing from the long list At the top of the thread, did they stop selling them???)
