Olfactory Oasis – Perfume Shopping at “Duft & Kultur” in Vienna

After a trip to Le Parfum last week I want to show you the second important destination for the discerning perfume lover in Vienna, Duft &Kultur. The store’s name translates from German as Fragrance & Culture and that is exactly what the friendly owners of this gem in the first district of Vienna, strive to provide for their customers.

Knowledgable and competent service are a matter of course at Duft & Kultur. The brands on offer include Annick Goutal, L’Artisan Parfumeur, Serge Lutens, Caron, Parfums Coudray, Diptyque, Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier and many more hard to find and niche perfumery lines as well as many body care brands, home scents and accessories.

The store is a treasure trove of items you never knew you wanted or needed, so one should calculate more time than anticipated to browse all the hidden gems to be found. It is probably best to leave husband and children at home, or at least outside. There is a very good ice cream parlor right around the corner, which has proven very helpful, time and again. 😉

If you are ever in Vienna, make it a must on your visit!

Dimitri of Sorcery of Scent did a wonderful post about Duft&Kultur featuring markedly better images, last year. Head on over for a closer look.

Picture source: my own, including glare and all, when I was there to make the pics it was closed 😉

    B, I do hope you realize that a) Vienna is one of my favorite cities, and b) now I have a perfect excuse to go, which should actually be c) two excuses, as if Gustav Klimt’s paintings weren’t enough! Duft & Kultur looks like one of those fatal shops you cannot leave in less than an hour…if not more!

    Let’s hope that book becomes an international bestseller…;-) and that I get a chance to go there in person – and meet you, too!

      That would be a treat, the two of us taking a tour through the Leopold Museum and then sniffing our way through Duft & Kultur. And I will be so proud to know a bestseller author! 🙂
