English: Duty-free boutique
French: Boutique hors taxes
Your flight may offer a duty-free boutique service, selling passengers products (eg. alcohol, cigarettes, cosmetics, jewellery, etc.) that are exempt from certain taxes or duties. Whereas European francophones are more likely to use the anglicism “duty-free”, Canadians are more inclined to say “hors taxes”. “Boutique hors taxes” would be what you could announce to the passengers as you pass through the cabin with the duty-free boutique cart, showcasing the selection of products for purchase.
Hors=excluding, out of
Taxes (f, pl)=taxes
Here are a few common products you'd sell from a duty-free boutique.
Cigarettes (f, pl)=cigarettes
Eau (f) de Cologne=cologne
Bijoux (m, pl)=jewellery
