My first day in Paris covered a few favourite destinations. Firstly a visit to one of my favourite fragrance boutiques Frederic Malle on rue du Mont Thabor. Then for a spot of lunch at l'Imperial. After recharging the batteries we headed to Chanel on rue Cambon and then to Goyard where I purchased a 'shopper' and matching scarf - truly gorgeous. Always good to be swinging down rue Saint Honore with a few shopping bags in tow!!

Chanel was busy as every store in Paris is currently on Sale. As much as I love a bargain nothing inspired me at Chanel. I prefer to shop when the stores are not on Sale.

These images are of Frederic Malle's store - I bought the newly released book on Perfume Making, one of the new room sprays and of course some perfume - En Passant.

Last but not least the wonderful view from our apartment - you could sit and look out the windows all day.

J'Adore Paris!!


  1. Hope you are having a wonderful time. I love the Frederic Malle range, each and every one I have tried so far. Expensive though! Wish I could meet up with you there.

  2. Enjoy! Love Paris so much, whatever time of year. Thanks very much for birthday wishes and also to you too... are you still en France ? x
