Perfume Atelier



Legend has it that you must have your signature scent before 30 and your lifelong scent after 30. I disagree with this; I think that you should be able to find your perfect scent at any point in your life. In fact, I think the only way to truly have your “signature” scent is by making it yourself. Emmanuel and Beatrice allow you to have this opportunity with their Perfume Creation Workshop. Both having had extensive experience in the world of fragrance, their expertise and high-quality ingredients allow you to step into their world of creativity and really create YOUR unique fragrance.

Plane ride over Paris



We all know how beautiful Paris is; the city of lights and love. I always say that Paris is most beautiful from within the streets but what about from the window of a private plane? Think New York helicopter experience minus the skyscrapers. You’ll get a full 360 view of Paris in this unique plane experience and if you didn’t have time to schedule Versailles into your trip, this little voyage has it covered. You’ll get an exclusive view of the Chateau minus the queues.





Make your own Hat



Have you ever had that moment of shock horror when you see the most beautiful accessory; hat, scarf, dress… and you’ve tried it on, only to find that actually, your dream accessory makes you look like you spent too long playing dress-up in your mother’s closet? Same. So why not try by-passing the problem by designing AND creating the perfect hat for you? With the help of a fully trained milliner and the use of her top-quality fabrics and machinery, you can create not only a stunning addition to your wardrobe but also, a priceless souvenir from Paris.





Create your own Silk Scarf Souvenir



In Paris, you won’t be shocked to see a plethora of Chanel, Dior and Hermès silk scarves being worn by the stereotypical Parisian but what if you could make your own? Be your own haute-couture designer? If the pride of being able to say you made your own scarf to those who admire it wasn’t enough to tempt you, let this unique souvenir be the everlasting reminder of a beautiful trip to Paris convince you.






A Day in (an full of) Champagne



We all feel like we need a little escape every so often and sometimes a getaway within a getaway is exactly what we need. The hustle and bustle of Parisian life can be a lot, even if just for a weekend. This Champagne retreat could be the perfect end to your whirlwind weekend in Paris. The hosts, Magali and Max are experts in the art of good food and even better Champagne (and the combination of both!). In this experience, you’ll be taken to some spots off the beaten path where you’ll learn about the authentic Champagne vinification process, you’ll lunch with the wine maker and be let into his world of wine. You’ll walk away from the experience with a plethora of knowledge on Champagne to wow your friends with at the next soirée.
