Flowers reign supreme on this island. Our guests of honour are perfumes and creams with floral extracts.


/// For HER ///

Crème Rose Lumière Multidefensive, Clarins

Soft, slightly pink cream that stimulates the skin, providing vitality and energy. It functions immediately thanks to illuminating mother of pearl. Gently exfoliating. Hibiscus smooths the skin, harungana combats tissue relaxation, and furcellaria with lapsana and white horehound protects against environmental stress. Apply in the morning.


Eau Dynamisante Body Milk, Clarins

Creamy lotion that is refreshing, non-greasy and easy to apply. It softens, moisturises, tones and perfumes with subtle notes of lemon, white tea and ginseng extract, which adds tone and energy. For all skin types.


Twilly D’Hermès Eau de Parfum, Hermès

The perfume created by Christine Nagel for young Hermès. Daring, with striking ginger and sensual tuberose and sandalwood. A floral, spicy and exotic eau de parfum. Inspired by daring, connected, irreverent young women, inventing a new era.


/// For HIM ///

Maximum Hydrator, Clinique

A man’s skin is tougher and thicker, but it needs to be hydrated. This cream provides an instant moisture boost, which softens and soothes. It boosts natural collagen production, providing greater strength and firmness, softening lines and wrinkles. Use at night and during the day on clean skin.


Happy For Men, Clinique

Opens with fresh notes of the ocean, lemon, lime, and mandarin. The engaging heart is an original composition of roses, lily of the valley, jasmine and freesia, with a warm and woody base of guaiac, cypress, cedar and musk. For a young and happy man.

Nigh on perfect

Unmistakable and unbeatable, not to mention almost a hundred years old, it’s the world best-selling perfume. The story begins in Paris in 1921 when word gets out that Gabrielle Chanel is going to launch a perfume and call it No. 5. Despite her talent, bold character, fine aesthetic sense and instinct for perfect things, such a simple name seems tantamount to heresy. And then there’s the bottle itself. Bare, stripped and square, it’s not what you would expect for a woman’s fragrance. Some see it as pointless provocation and Chanel’s first false step, and one that the house will certainly regret. However, No. 5 is clear and concise, mathematical. Mathematics doesn’t lie... and how can such a dull name ooze sensuality? Created by chemist, nez and sorcerer, Ernest Beaux, it’s a collection of living and unique flowers: Grasse jasmine and May rose, ylang-ylang from Comoros, Mysore sandalwood and vetiver in perfect harmony, with no dominant notes. Peerless balance and harmony. Aldehydes were added to the bouquet to give it lightness, modernity and classicism. Nº 5 lends elegance and refinement. In the words of Mademoiselle Chanel, “a woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future”.
