During my recent trip to New York we stopped in to Aedes De Venustas (Latin for Temple of Beauty) which is the most amazing perfumery I've seen. Not just for the incredible selection of hard to find fragrances, but for the ambiance the owners have created. When you walk through the doors, you feel as though you have stepped back in time to a Paris perfumery on Avenue Montagne. The decor is opulent, mainly golds, plums, wine color with bouquets of sterling silver roses. Peacocks and fan-tailed pigeons were perched throughout this lush garden of delights. If you are in New York, it is well worth your time to visit this very fine establishment and indulge you senses in this artistic display of the world's finest fragrances.
