Les Odeurs

Les Odeurs

Saint-Pétersbourg: Une de mes villes préférées, l'odeur de l'Eglise orthodoxe Saint-Nicolas à l'heure de la messe, unique et inoubliable. J'ai retrouvé par hasard ce parfum dans une crème de corps Armani, Armani Privé Bois d'Encens. - One of my favorite cities, the scent at the Orthodox Church ‘Saint Nicolas’ at the time of mass, unique and unforgettable, I found by chance this scent in a body cream from Armani, Armani Prive Bois d’encens. - Marrakech: J'aime évidemment les odeurs du souk, les épices, le cuir, l'ambre… Que l'on retrouve chez l’Orientaliste (parfumeur).

Valerie Trierweiler : Merci pour ce moment

Valerie Trierweiler : Merci pour ce moment

Enfin j ai entre les mains le livre le plus attendu et controverse de la rentree. Un grand cri d’ amour ou un deballage obcene. Après lecture rapide..... un peu des deux. C est brouillon. Ca resemble a un acces de colere. Un peu larmoyant comme l’ interview les yeux baisses de Diana. Malheureusement, cette pauvre Valerie ne sera pas a l’ instar de DI, la premiere Dame des coeurs, comme l’ autre en fut la princesse. Nous sommes en Republique. Mr Hollande voulait etre un president normal, il est un type banal, lache et fuyant. Bien qu il exhale la seduction comme un poisson pane, Mrs Trierweiller voudrait nous le vendre comme un nouveau French Lover. Ce trio au... Read More

Michi's top destinations during a quick transit in Singapore

Singapore is quite a small city.  If you would like to look around town and do some shopping/market research, the place to go is Orchard Road.  Within that one city block, there are numerous malls where everyone shops, from luxury brands to high street boutiques.  I suggest you visit Ion, Takashimaya and Paragon.  I can't say you'll find anything to buy in Singapore that would be unique or exceptional. Outside of Orchard Road, perhaps the place that is most unique is Marina Bay Sands, the casino, restaurant, hotel and shopping complex.  It's huge, there are many international restaurants within including Wolfgang Puck, Mario Battali and Daniel Boulud's DB Cafe.  Also an extremely popular restaurant for something Asian called Din Tai...

My Favourite spots in Paris

Paris A La Mode

As much as I would have loved to stop and enjoy Hong Kong's idyllic winter days, almost as soon as the shoot with Herbert Ypma was finished I had to dash onto a plane for Paris for the famous "salons" that take place around the city twice a year. From Villepinte to Porte de Versailles and to more glamorous places such as Le Grand Palais, these trade shows showcase the latest visions and creations in fashion, art, interior design and much, much more. For one week fashion editors, buyers and vendors all dash from one place to the other in the hope of gaining inspiration, information, or the must-have pieces for the season. Sadly, I jetted in too late to... Read More

Favourite spots in town Beverly Hills Hotel The Polo Lounge for drinks around 6pm.
