“Sephora” is a trade mark for cosmetic stores that you can find all over France and in 17 shops in Paris only.
The other half of perfume and cosmetic shops in Paris are “Marionnaud” and there is about no private shop left in this business.
When Christmas comes, Sephora and Marionnaud compete to attract costumers.
Besides the usual perfume cases, this year Sephora has made an alliance with Paris confectioner Ladurée, whose macarons are famous.
So this winter, for 10 euros, at breakfast your lips will taste like brioche.
And for a few euros more, your entire body will smell like pastries : baths salts (10 euros), mixed flavor “macarons” soaps (15 euros), body powder (25 euros), and a Ladurée pink vanity case to carry all this (30 euros)
You can visit and even buy at Sephora on : http://www.sephora.fr/
As well as for Marionnaud on : http://www.marionnaud.fr/commun/default.asp?langue=1&itemmo
But if you’re not on a diet, I would suggest you to taste the real macarons, and pay a visit to : http://www.laduree.fr/
