I love bringing home pretty little things as souvenirs from our travels and Paris was a veritable treasure trove! There are so many iconic French brands that have their flagship stores in Paris and it was so much fun window shopping at Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Chanel. Whilst my budget didn’t quite extend to a Chanel Classic Flap Bag, I did pick up a few little treasures.
As I mentioned in my last post we went to the Diptyque boutique, the address for which is on the labels and the whole experience was lovely. We were taught the correct method for smelling the candle fragrances (forcefully turning the candle onto a velvet pedestal and smelling the base of the wax) which seemed quite destructive at first, but after a few candles it was quite good fun!
I have been coveting this little cosmetic bag for quite some time and it was lovely to buy it from the flagship store on the Champs-Élysées. We even had our own personal shopper providing descriptions of each and every bag I picked up (there were a lot) which Nathan found most amusing!
Chanel chance is one of my signature and all-time favourite fragrances, so of course I had to have a bottle
All of these little trésors can be bought online or in department stores here in the UK, but buying them in Paris makes them all the more special. Every time I dip into my Longchamp cosmetic bag, spritz Chanel Chance, or burn Diptyque Muguet I will be transported to our magical Anniversary trip to Paris and that makes me ever so happy.
