While the concept of concept shops gets murkier all the time, the idea behind Nose, a concept perfumery launched days ago in Paris, is abundantly clear. After you answer a mere five questions concerning your olfactory preferences and usage history, the experts at Nose consult a proprietary database years in the making to determine what your favorite notes actually are and offer you a selection of juices that contain those ingredients. These aren't no-name juices, either, but high-end labels like Diptyque, by Kilian, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Creed, L’Artisan Parfumeur, Acqua Di Parma, Penhaligon’s, and Miller Harris, among many others. Goodbye guesswork—the Nose store knows.
Nose, 20 rue bachaumont, Paris. The diagnosis is also available online at Nose.
