The Perfect Provenance in Greenwich Connecticut
Nestled on the side street of Grigg Street, an offshoot of upscale Greenwich Avenue in bucolic Greenwich, CT, is a luxury lifestyle boutique where anyone who enters becomes instantly enveloped in a perfect shopping oasis, reminiscent of Provence.
Home Section of The Perfect Provenance
The three-story refurbished Victorian style home, located at 47 Arch Street, features beautifully crafted items from around the globe, with an abundance of French influence and tasteful opulence, as well as the infusion and charm of California wine country.
The expansive store features both women’s and men’s fashions, and accessories (unique clothing, clutches, scarves, sunglasses and jewelry), home décor (luxurious throws & accents, European barware and vintage mirrors), beauty (creams, candles, and only the finest, curated selection of perfumes), as well as captivating artwork suited for any space including paintings, photography and sculptures.
The Versailles Room
Upon entering the Perfect Provenance, one can quickly attest to the well-curated eye represented by Proprietor Lisa Lori. The boutique’s sophisticated, yet intimate design fosters a luminous, tranquil space where original findings and luxurious indulgences are thematically dispersed throughout the store in designated rooms titled “The Versailles Room,” “A Moveable Feast Room,” and “The Game Room.”

After a lucrative career in PR, marketing and branding that spanned 20 years with companies such as Ogilvy & Mather, Ruder Finn, Body Shop International, International Flavors & Fragrances, and Seagram Americas, as well as her own communications firm, Lisa Lori had the vision and the equivalent passion to create a unique, curated concept store that would showcase ‘the very best of her travels’ and luxury findings where patrons from all over would come to explore, shop, and enjoy good food at Café 47.

Café 47, under the culinary helm of Chef Arik Bensimon, is an integral part of the sensory experience.

The selections of niche and luxury fragrances are curated by Lisa and she carries notable brands such as Histoires de Parfums, Thirdman, Parfums de la Bastide, Eight & Bob and Roja Parfums. Some of the best-sellers are Insouciante by Parfum de la Bastide, Eau de Monumentale by Thirdman and Memoires de Mustique by Eight & Bob.
Prospérité Candle — The Perfect Provenance
The Perfect Provenance offers Wine Country inspired body soaps, bath salts & aromatherapy diffusers by Napa Soap Company which are hand-poured and crafted in small batches in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Also popular are the Perfect Provenance Collection of luxe candles. Lisa’s work in the beauty and luxury industry, as well as her love of fragrance, inspired her to develop her own line of three distinct candles; Sunshine Limone, Prosperite and Fir Goodness Sake, all created by perfumers from Symrise. Each scent is representative of a different aspect of her own life, and the candles are made from soy based wax, hand poured into recycled glass containers and finally packaged into a beautiful wood container. Each unique scent, provides an aromatic indulgence that transports one to the Napa Valley, a place close to Lisa’s heart. Napa Valley is a short distance from where Lisa grew up in California, was married and hopes to one day have a second store. The lifestyle, food and casual luxury of this area influence all aspects of the Perfect Provenance.

Lisa also debuted her line of fine jewelry and the Smile Collection in her store, which includes a series of organic cotton tees, tote bags, and makeup pouches that benefit Operation Smile. The Perfect Provenance’s mission is to be a true gallery for the senses with new and interesting delights at every turn. In my opinion, it succeeds on all fronts.
