Paris has many fantastic places to enjoy your favourite cocktail… but for a truly unforgettable experience… treat yourself to the finer things in life by checking out one of Paris’s many rooftop bars and elevated restaurants. They can be found pretty much anywhere in the city. We personally recommend heading on over to some of the ritzier hotels in Paris… Here you will often times find chic lounges where you can look out onto the sweeping vistas of Paris. If you decide to go after the sun sets, the city is especially beautiful when all of the lights come on! Its not called the city of lights for nothing…

Paris, and France, is famous for the many fragrances that it produces. Check out the famous perfume house known as Parfums Caron. Here you can buy an original perfume called Poivre Perfume that runs for around 1,000 dollars per ounce. While this price-tag might deter some, if you are looking to treat yourself this is a great place to start. This perfumery has been operating for over 100 years and, unsurprisingly, they have learned a thing or two about their craft during this time.
