Payard serving up sweet scents

Sweet Francois Payard has closed his famed New York patisserie and restaurant due to an untenably steep rent increase. (He’s in search of another location.)  Meanwhile, you can evoke his sweet temptations with his “gourmand perfumes,” called Inspiration.

Your sweetie have a thing for chocolate? Seduce with a dab of Lychee Mousse ($42), Pistachio Ganache ($45) and Bergamot Truffle ($48) behind your ears (or elsewhere). Each perfume evokes a signature Payard creation. Available online from www.payard.com.

Me, I’m not so sure I want to smell like a chocolate bonbon. Truffles or an aged aceto balsamico might be more my style
