I take every one who visits me to the Perfume House - women who are out of town guests, children, mothers, grandmothers, grandchildren, professionals. EVERYONE wihtout exception has loved the experience. The staff is knowledgeable about the perfumes and will be as reserved or expressive as your demeanor requests. I was terribly shy and intimidated the first time I ventured into this place that reminded me so much of an Audrey Hepburn theater set. I discovered a wonderful place. The staff neither overpowered me with advice nor ignored me. Chris, the owner, is a prince. Make an appointment for Chris to tell you the stories behind the perfumes, how to wear scents (wihotu over powering others!), and the various ""notes"" (scents) (my favorite has over a hundred) that make up each specific perfume. This place rivals any perfume experience any where in the world.
