What liquor/liqueur should I bring back from Paris?

I'll be going in December and just wondering if there is anything unique that I could buy at the duty free/in the city to take home? I live in Alberta.
It all depends upon what you personally like. and whether or not you can get it at home, as well as at what price?
I just returned from France, and brought back a bottle of wine I love that is hard to find here, and if I could, it would be at least $50 USD. I got it there for 21 Euros. a great deal, I thought. I also brought back a bottle of Cognac we love that is no longer available in US.
That's how I decide what's worth packing.
Grand Marnier. I know you can get it in the US but I SWEAR they keep all the good stuff for France. It's just better. (and if you can find a good deal on the 100 anniversary or 150 anniversary Grand Marnier, buy it! I bought a bottle of the 150th anniversary in Italy for $20 (pre-Euro). It costs $350 in the US!)
I usually go with a calvados, but again, it depends on your tastes and what is available at your local liquor store.
