Court of Scents (Cour des Senteurs)

Locals and foreign visitors alike are thrilled by Versailles' newest attraction, the Court of Scents (Cour des Senteurs). Located just steps away from the main gates of the city's world-famous palace, the Court of Scents opened in 2013 in Saint-Louis, the oldest neighborhood in Versailles.

Inside the courtyard is an immersive experience for the senses. From the orange blossom-perfumed fountain and Maison des Parfums to the garden paths and shopping spots, it's another world entirely. 

While the Court of Scents may seem like a mere oasis for shoppers, it should be noted that it the home of rarities. The Guerlain store here, for example, is the only one in France outside Paris' Avenue des Champs-Élysées, and court's Maison Fabre is the only place in the world to purchase exact replicas of Marie Antoinette's two-toned, perfumed gloves. The Lenôtre combines perfumery and gastronomy for food lovers, and Diptyque, the final shop here, is a uniquely French brand that brings a bit of Versailles home with the visitor.

Practical Info

The Court of Scents is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. It is free to enter and browse; tours are available exclusively through Viator.
