A normal looking pharmacie on the albeit chi-chi rue Jacob. Behind these doors a wealth of the normal fun things you find in a french chemist/drugstore, but there’s more. Mme (Annie) Zagorski, the owner, is also a naturopath and makes the most excellent face creams (anti-ageing), hand cream, bath essence (the rose is excellent and beautifully and profoundly rose-smelling unlike other synthetic varieties).
The shop also has many excellent and quirky products based on plants such as menthol balms, Melissa drops made in a Convent, Carmes Boyer to perk you up (to be dropped into a specially wrapped sugar cube and ingested).
Je t’aime, says Jane, who lives down the street…
