Porte des Lilas
The coarse texture of cobblestone shifts underneath the soles of your soft leather shoes as you make your way out of the Paris Metro station. You are greeted with the sweet smell of ylang ylang and rose, underscored by something deep and sweet. Thousands of lilac blooms overflow from neat garden fences, gracing the storied alleyway with their delicate perfume. The familiar spice of Italian bergamot meanders through the air for a note of citrus that awakens the senses.
