Who We Are

When you first step into Paramount Imports, you notice a wonderful-unique aroma that has become synonymous with our name "Paramount". For decades, that scent comes from having a store filled with possibly the widest variety of incense that you've ever smelled in your life. Incense from all over the world! Also, our selection of pipes is probably the largest that you have ever seen. However, we are so much more. We carry at least a little bit of almost anything imaginable. You will find things here in our store that you may have never found anywhere else.



Paramount Imports began in 1967, the summer of love. We started as an importer of statuary and home decorations from Mexico. As the sixties progressed into the seventies our store (one of the first of its kind) evolved into an icon, representing the very best of the psychedelic age.

our store

For nearly 50 years, we have kept our store a unique and multisensory experience. That combined with our extensive selection, fair prices and great friendly service is what makes Paramount Imports one of the greatest smoke and gift shops in California. But hey, come in and judge us for yourself.
