Undina’s Travel and Shopping Page

The Unseen Censer is hosting a mirror here of a page put together by the thoughtful and thorough Undina of Undina’s Looking Glass. If you have updates, please contact her at her site and add them! There are several perfume bloggers hosting mirrors of her page.


This is a collection of links to posts from different blogs that cover perfume shopping in different cities all around the world.

Please contact me if you’ve written or come across an article you want to include in this list or if you want to host a similar page (I’ll send you an html file with the current list and will be providing updates several times a year).

If you like the idea please spread the word. I have no commercial interest in this project I just think it might be useful for the community.

The list is organized by country and then by city. City names are links, if there is more than one link for a city [partial] article titles are used as links. In parentheses are blog names and published/last modified dates (in mm/dd/yy format).
