Wanted to know what the best cigar stores to visit in Paris are? As well as how stock and prices are, I don't need regular production boxes I'd mainly be looking at something I can't easily get elsewhere.

There's only one place to go, A La Civette, perhaps the oldest cigar shop in the world. Near the Louvre, it's the best of the best. White glove service, literally. Fine selection.

Cool, that's on my list, how are the prices in France in general?

:blink::wacko: I just love this kind of peremptory statements.

There are several other good places:

• Le Lotus, 4 rue de l'Arcade (8th Arrondissement, near La Madeleine)

• Art Tabac, 2 Place de Catalogne 14th Arrondissement, near Montparnasse)

Not cheap...I think I paid close to 20 euro for a single Partagas Serie P no 2 tubo. But...they have a great selection, and the history there is something
 

Then you got scammed; the price of the Partagas P2 in a tobacco shop in France (tubos or not) is €13.60. No exception.

It was an American figure of speech, apologies if this was not understood.

I was in Paris a couple of weeks ago and only went to Le Lotus. They had a good selection, but not astounding. Some aged stuff. I bought some QDO RE among others. As noted above, prices are the same in all the stores there. More expensive than online retailers but nice to pick up some REs.

Not anymore...selection has become sub-par. Not sure the last time you visited, but back in August, they hardly had anything in stock. Le Lotus is now the best cigar in Paris in my opinion and from my experience.

I'm sorry to hear this, I was here in '15, that's a shame, really.

Actually I believe this shop has often experienced ups and downs; in the early 2000's it was owned by Davidoff (maybe it' still the case, IDK) and the staff was systematically trashing habanos and always offered NCs first to inexperienced customers.

Hi guys, I am french but I live in Mexico, I often go to France to visit my family. 

I was there in january and La Civette was really disappointing, I found this place (Le terminus), a very small tobacco shop to have quite a nice selection.

I bought them some capuletos, Magnum 56 EL, Partagas E2, Cohiba siglo IV, France RE and some others I don't remember.

Here is the google maps link.

My wife is going to Paris in 2 weeks. Her hotel is near the Eiffel tower. Any suggestions of cigar stores near the Eiffel Tower?

Nothing "near" the Eiffel Tower. The closest good shops are located in the Avenue Victo Hugo (short taxi ride):

• Boutique 22, at the 22, avenue Victor Hugo

• Tabac Lemaire at 59 avenue Victor Hugo

but the drive to Le Lotus (in the Madeleine area) is just a bit longer and worth the détour… going there by metro is easy.
