For Part Two of our series on Jovoy Paris, let us introduce you to the store! A few steps from the famous Place Vendome, Jovoy has become known as THE niche fragrant destination in Paris, introducing new and cult brands (many have already been featured on CaFleureBon ) including: Atelier Flou, Grossmith, Illuminum, M.Micallef, Olfactive Studio, Undergreen, Amouage, Hors la Monde, Isabey,Technique Indiscrète, Histoires de Parfums and Parfum d’Empire . Recently the boutique just launched another CaFleurebon favorite from our friend Vero Kern of Vero Profumo and soon will carry the entire collection of Andy Tauer … which is Tauer’s first entrée into Paris . You are always welcomed by François Hénin, the owner of Jovoy and Hugo Lambert, the “ambassador”.
As we introduced you to the splendid six perfumes of Jovoy, we are also pleased to announce their line of eleven candles (so beautiful you may be tempted to use them as home décor). Each is presented in a red box hat a reference to the company’s vintage heritage. You may buy the candle alone or accompanied by a bell glass, protecting it from dust.
A delightful scent of hazelnut and cake fresh from the oven

Just in case you don’t have a pen handy to call Jovoy, their telephone number is the name of the candle! Not a marketing ploy, there is a real story behind its name … a woman shopper used her red lipstick to write down the number and voila! This candle wafts a powdery leather scent that is very feminine.
Before the perfume the candle was the signature scent of the shoppe which you can almost smell from the Place Vendome
L’Arbre de la Connaissance
Fig lovers will lust for this candle which smells just like the perfume
Les Demoiselles de la rue de Provence
Translated from the French this means the young girls of Paris, but it is really the smell of the brothels ( which evokes Picasso’s painting)! One word captures the scent of seduction…Tuberose
In Nomine Patris
The almost 'religious' scent of incense.
The sugar rum cocktail evoking “Papa” aka Ernest Hemingway, the ex-pat American writer who stayed in France for some time
Qu’on leur donne de la brioche !
Of course based on Marie Antoinette legendary misquote (Let them eat cake). A confectionary candle
Vive le Roy!
Before the French were cutting off the heads of the nobility in the 18th century the masses would shout long live the king. The smell of opulent lily, the royal flower turns your home into a kingdom..
Relais de Chasse
Imagine yourself only twenty miles from Paris and at the Foret de Rambouillet. This scent evokes the forest the smell of the hearth and a crackling fire.
Named for the sailing ship that navigated the seas during the 17th century;the candle smell of old wood and spices .
