What do the Royal Monceau, the Peninsula Paris and the Paris Saint-Germain have in common ? Like many other prestigious Paris properties and symbols, they belong to Qatar, which probably explains why the State of Qatar is present in everyone’s mind as a wealthy country, associated with gas and oil.

However, it’s always interesting to go beyond the cliché. And that’s exactly what I got the chance to do recently, with a visit to the country. A trip that has definitely helped me get an accurate vision of Qatar through its capital city Doha, with the help of the Qatar Tourism Authority and QIA (QatarInternational Adventures).

I love the new Made in Sephora "Be Atomic" line: on the one hand, a limited edition bath line beautifully customized, terribly sexy and especially concocted so that "chemistry" works ...

On the other hand, a Nourishing Body Cream with a whipped cream texture, for the promise of a smooth and silky skin.

As a result, a beautiful body and skin, calling for sweetness, caresses and kisses...

What I like about the Dorchester Collection is the diversity of the group's properties: from one country to another, and even in the same city, each and every palace of the collection has its own identity and character; all yet sharing the same excellence in service. 

On my most recent trip to London, I decided to go for something different from the group's flagship Dorchester hotel, and booked my stay at 45 Park Lane.

The Christian Louboutin Spring/Summer 2016 men’s collection sees newly updated versions of several beloved classics join the Louboutin Homme family, alongside standout seasonal styles, all made with the utmost of precision in the company's Naples factory.

Making their respective debuts, four new classics - Cousin Charles, Cousin Dand, Cousin Greg and Cousin Tass - showcase the ongoing evolution of key styles each season, now boasting Blake stitched soles and updated silhouettes.

Spring is this time of the year when we start considering taking much needed breaks, in preparation of the long awaited summer holidays to come. The most perfect place for this type of break, as I have recently discovered, is the sublime Hotel Royal Evian - 360 miles from Paris and 25 miles from Geneva, facing the Swiss city of Lausanne on the other side of Lake Geneva.

A recent study by IFOP for Filorga shows that wrinkles are the main beauty concern for women between 30 and 65 - and, I am sure, for men too...

Leading French beauty brand Filorga never ceases to innovate in order to answer those concerns with its cosmetics offering, inspired by its esthetic medicine solutions (Filorga is the main esthetic medicine brand in France, providing doctors with everything from hyaluronic acid to peelings).

Solitary, the curved square of the quilting reveals the delicacy of its contours paved with diamonds. Only the azure blue sapphires and aquamarines add a touch of contrast here and there to the luminous brightness of the white gold and diamonds. Pearls, grey mother-of-pearl marquetry and rock crystal complete the collection in variations on the same theme.

Elegantly sitting under the beautiful arcades facing the Tuileries gardens on rue de Rivoli, the Angelina tearoom has never ceased to be an institution for Parisians and visitors alike since it first opened nearly 113 years ago. Its elegant salons have seen many famous and regular guests over the decades, among whom Proust and Coco Chanel, who rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in fashion.

New season, new beauty essentials, all exclusively available at Sephora !

You have probably noticed that champagne is a recurring topic on The Parisian Eye. It's always a pleasure to discover and share new or less known champagne houses like today's focus: Charles Clément. 

Charles Clément's rosé champagne has everything right: a romantic color, light bubbles, fruity aromas.
