A new luxury fragrance shop opened on October 1st, on the 10th floor of Nagoya's Takashimaya department store. Rare and unique fragrances are available newly designed and refurbished shop, forming the largest collection of luxury perfumes in Central Japan's Tokai region.
The retail name, Maison, comes from the manufacturing process for the perfumes in France, traditionally carried out in residential homes, or "Maisons." Offering only all-natural fragrances which are not easily mass-produced is a key trait of the shop. Maison remains faithful to products made by traditional production methods, and offers many of the same fragrances available from "Bond Number 9 Fragrances" in New York, a well known US shop that also offers traditionally made fragrances.
Two well-known, traditionally crafted fragrances, "Creed" and "Etro", will be featured in the Nagoya Maison shop, and the shop's staff is expertly trained in the crafts of scents and fragrances. Store hours are 10:00AM - 8:00PM daily.
