A must visit boutique in Aix-en-Provence


Parfums de la bastide in Aix en Provence

When Anne-Cécile welcomes you into her sublime boutique on a quiet pedestrian street in Aix-en-Provence you cannot help but be captivated.  

Her impeccable taste and savoir-faire makes Perfums de la Bastide, 4 Rue Papassaudi an address one is reluctant to leave. 

Luxury French candles from Provence

Luxurious perfumes, slow burning and intoxicating candles and ultra soft woolen throws are her specialty. Everything is made locally by specialist artisans. 

The perfumes make full use of local ingredients including agrum, cedar and rose. Here, lavender is cleverly given a modern twist. 

A master candlemaker in Aubagne creates heavenly scents that are evocative of being by a crackling open fire, walking through the Provencal scrubland or peeling open a zesty clementine. 

Brun de Vian-Tiran blankets

Ultra-soft and warm woolen blankets add to the cosy atmosphere of Anne-Cécile's boutique. Made by Brun De Vian-Tiran, expert French blanket makers - they have been making blankets for eight generations in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. 

Perfums de la bastide is a truly special experience and a must visit address when you are next visiting Aix-en-Provence.
