I coincidentally walked by Diptyque Bazar on the way home from my Palais Garnier last week. I honestly just expected it to be a regular Diptyque boutique and decided to pop in to do a little Christmas shopping. As it turns out, Diptyque Bazar isn’t a regular Diptyque boutique. I think it’s so much cooler, and it has an interesting link to the history of the brand.
One of my all-time favorite streets in Paris is Rue du Bac. It’s home to so many different things including a few of my favorite cafés, my butcher, my flower shop, a few pastry shops and finally tons of great boutiques. For Christmas, the entire street is lined with lights. I thought it would be fun to compile a Rue du Bac Gift Guide filled with a few selections from some of my favorite shops. While some are holiday specific, many are available to purchase year-round as well!
One of the best parts about living in Paris and France for a foodie like myself is all of the weekly open-air markets. Marché Raspail is “mine,” since it’s the closest to my apartment. And it makes shopping for food a dream.
