It is a known fact that some hotels are intimately linked to the cities where they are located, becoming must-see landmarks over time. Landmarks where you can feel and catch the full spirit of the city, in one single place.

Like the other properties of The Dorchester Collection (The Plaza Athénée in Paris or the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles), The Dorchester in London is one of those.

The ultimate Afternoon Tea destination for visitors, guests and many Londoners alike, their award-winning Afternoon Tea has been served with perfection since the first day The Dorchester opened in 1931…

As I wrote in this article, I try to enjoy this quintessentially British habit at The Dorchester everytime I visit the city.

Marc Jacobs Beauty was first launched exclusively at Sephora earlier this year, as I mentioned in this post. For Christmas, the designer beauty line has released several lines, all inspired by Paris and available at Sephora. 

Marc Jacobs' interpretation of "The City of Light" for the end of this year lead to a very sophisticated collection in limited edition, named "Midnight in Paris" and inspired by the beauty and elegance of Paris and the "parisienne".

It's been a while since I haven't mentioned diptyque, so I thought the festive season would be the most appropriate to bring the spotlight to this beautiful brand. Every year at diptyque, a limited edition collection celebrates the holiday season. 

Three original fragrances, three colours, three ambiences transport us, each in their own way, to unforgettable winters that awaken all of our childhood memories in the blink of an eye. Scents that instinctively make us close our eyes...

Quite different from my past experiences at Sotheby's Paris, the prestigious auction house introduced tonight its first ever sale dedicated to the art of setting a table, that will be held at the Paris Galerie Charpentier on December 17.

Christmas has finally arrived at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée Paris, one of my favorite places in the city of lights. And I would not be The Parisian Eye if I was not one of the first to see and immortalize their spectacular Christmas tree! 

Standing tall in the newly renovated hotel lobby, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée Christmas tree is surrounded by Teddy in different sizes, but all in the red, signature color of this mascot of the hotel.

Christmas holiday and end of year celebrations are made to treat yourself, and what better way to do it than with champagne and caviar?

Kaviari, that I firstdiscovered last year in Paris, takes us around the world this Christmas, with a unique set offering three caviars from different origins. From Russia, evoking the splendor of the czars’ tables, to China’s Amour River and the Apennine Mountains in Italy.

Another great entertainment news in Paris for the holiday season ! 

Since December 1st and until December 29, there's a new hotspot in town, as Bombay Sapphire creates the first Gin & Tonic ephemeral bar at the Hotel Fouquet's Barrière, on the Champs-Elysées.

For the occasion, the hotel's Marta Bar is entirely revisited, taking visitors to a journey inside the world of Bombay Sapphire and over the world, to each region where the 10 exotic spices that make this gin so special come from.

Always ahead of the competition, Cartier just unveiled their first SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) creation for 2015: the Ronde Louis Cartier Filigree watch.

Back in 2013, the Maison already brought back to life a millennia-old artistic craft, called granulation. Created in the new Maison des Métiers d’Art on site at La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Ronde Louis Cartier Filigree watch reinvents another centuries-old technique, the filigree, using a figurative, precious approach.

The festive season being appropriate for dreaming, let’s start the week on a dreamy note !

British company Goldgenie, famous for turning your everyday, common objects into gold – literally, for clients including The Beckhams and Elton John, to name a few; just unveiled their latest creation: a 24k gold road bike.

This golden set of wheels is a unique creation; a true work of art, as well as a beautifully contoured racing bike that is designed to be admired.

It has been a while since I last shared my experiences at the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris. One of the city’s newest Palaces, that used to be the home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, sees things big this Christmas: on December 6, a Christmas boutique will open its doors, offering guests and visitors the possibility to creations of the hotel's pastry chef François Perret.
