Walking in to Avery Perfume Gallery (527 Joseph St., 504-522-7102; www.averyperfumegallery.com) is like walking into a bazaar rife with exotic scents. The mercury-tinged mirrors on the wall facing the door, the patina on the wooden panels to the right and the golden latticework light fixtures are reminiscent of a warm Middle Eastern shop, with the cooling touches of green indoor plants suspended from overhead baskets or scattered about in unique planters. The exposed brick and the sound of adjacent construction are the sole reminders that you are, in fact, in the heart of downtown New Orleans.
