This great adventure began in 2006 by two lovers of life, small pleasures, mischievous games and the Paris cliché, romantic and unusual! They decided to create an original concept, a Love Store! Not a Sex Shop! A true Love Store called the “Passage du Désir” (passage of desire) where they speak of love, not pornography or obscenity.
Initially, they were 2 promoters! Today, the Passage du Désir counts 23 people!
In 4 years, they opened 3 shops in Paris and not anywhere … in the heart of Paris: in the « Pont Neuf » Street, the heart of the Marais and 2 steps from Pompidou museum! The Passage du Désir is becoming an institution! A must visit tourist routes from Paris! It is a place conceptual, fun and offbeat.
If You’re sad when you go in, you will have a big smile when you will go out!
In 2009, the Passage du Désir won the « Award for the most creative distribution »! Here, you will not find things grotesque. The creation and good taste prevail! They work with young designers. Some designers, who started with them, are now famous!
The Passage du Désir is open to all! Young, old, quirky, classic, women, men … Everyone is involved and can find happiness! From cookbook to gadgets, from flashy teddy to fine lingerie, from dishes vintage to pencils surprising and informative, from sex toys to cosmetic, and many other surprises. (I will still not reveal to you all!)

I met one of the promoters of the Passage du Désir, Fleur, who had a stay in one of we-Paris apartments, Le Bienvenue, and had loved the concept!
She said that we have to do something together! For the lucky ones that will make (AND WHO EMAIL ME BEFORE), they can test the box « welfare », a real of Passage du Désir in collaboration with « Yes For Love »! I will not say any more, for you to find out. If the cabinet you like, go to one of three stores to tell them!
