I'm going to be visiting Toronto soon and I'd really like to find some new and interesting perfume. Does anyone know of any stores that sell more of the niche brands? Thanks for the help.
personally I'd say there's a whole core of shops in Yorkville. Do a round of Holts, Pir, Noor, and maybe then the Guerlain Boutique... should pretty much cover everything.
Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute
HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...
Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
I have read about a store called "Noor". They don't have much of a web presence yet.
Here is a link to an article about the Noor Boutique from the Canadian newspaper The National Post, dated Decmber 17, 2009, listing some of the new lines they carry:
Have a great trip!
Thank you so much! I used to live in Toronto but I was a student so shopping in Yorkville wasn't something that I did - I'm excited to go back and check it all out!
You should check out Enchante. They have 4 locations in Toronto, including one downtown in the Toronto-Dominion Centre. I've purchased from them and I'm a happy customer. They have a huge variety of things including Creed, Guerlain, and other stuff you don't find in most stores. They even have all of the extras for most scents: shower gel, deodorant, etc.
