As the Cannes Film festival just came to an end, I thought it was great timing to come back on a trip I took last year, to Cannes precisely, as part of my travel experience with the Intercontinental Hotel Group.

The setting for this trip : right in the heart of the celebrated croisette, facing the Mediterranean, I stayed at the legendary InterContinental Carlton Cannes hotel.

This trip was the last of a series during summer, when I had the opportunity to spend 1,000,000 points on the IHG Rewards Club, the group's loyalty program. After Madrid and New York, Cannes was the final destination I booked through IHG’s website.

Flying from Paris to Nice, it takes less than an hour to reach Cannes via taxi or shuttle from Nice airport.

He is one of the Hollywood trilogy "Divergent" 's sexiest hunks, so no wonder Theo James has been chosen as the face of Boss Parfums' upcoming fall creation, expected to be "incredibly captivating, the sign of a new territory for the brand and an ultimate luxury experience". 

Following in the footsteps of Gerard Butler, Orlando Bloom and Ryan Reynolds, Theo James perfectly fits in the description of a "Boss man", as a master of seduction.

Did you know that Christian Dior’s childhood can be related to travel ?

I did not, so you can guess how pleased I am to discover I share one of the same passion as Monsieur Dior !

He indeed grew up in Granville, in a villa overlooking the sea, and named “Les Rhumbs”; the name given to the thirty two divisions of the wind rose (the ‘rose des vents’ in French)… Something directly related to travel, as everything about the villa alludes to travel: the Channel Islands are visible in the far distan

In 1990, Piaget rocked jewelry codes with "Possession", a ring featuring a second rotating band with which to play: a ring that could be simply turned to captivate the world.

This year, 25 years later, the jeweller is expanding its iconic line, made of pink gold and set with diamonds: a jewel representing an endless source of pleasure for all women who follow their own set of rules.

This spring, Sephora gets a makeover by the brilliant illustrator and graphic artist duo Craig and Karl. 

From Apple to Kiehls, Craig Redman & Karl Maier collaborate with the biggest brands, boosting their image with quirky and brightly coloured designs. 

For Sephora, Craig & Karl have revisited the bath and makeup lines, bringing them a very fresh, pop and coloured touch: stylised eyes for the eye products, an open mouth for the lip products, polka dots, stripes, check...

As the Cannes film festival starts today in France, all eyes will be on the French Riviera for the next 10 days of the annual global event.

As I could see while staying at The Beverly Hills Hotel last week, Los Angeles - and California - definitely was the place to be in order to feel the vibrant atmosphere Louis Vuitton brought to the state for its Cruise 2016 show, held in nearby Palm Springs.

This year, for its beauty and make-up summer line, Chanel took inspiration from one of Gabrielle Chanel's favorite destinations (and also one of mine's): the French Riviera. 

With this vibrant collection, Chanel takes us back to the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties, Coco Chanel's Riviera: a haven of peace full of light under the blue sky, where the skin is tanned and the rhythm is relaxed.

If Cartier is known by everyone for their jewelry, the Maison is also renowned for its perfumes – widely distributed on a worldwide scale at retailers like Sephora.

If La Panthère, Pasha and Déclaration will surely ring a bell to the majority of us, there is a most exclusive line called Les Heures de Parfums, that you will only find at Cartier stores.

As a beauty conscious man, I like to try and keep up to date with new products, regularly sharing my opinions and recommendations. And, as a beauty conscious man, I know there are often too many products out there, that get us easily lost. Who doesn't have a few products in their bathroom that they  stopped using, tired of six step - or more - beauty routines ? 

If you are in this situation, Human + Kind was created for you.
