Arrive in Paris

Upon arrival, check in to your hotel. Then, open a window and soak in the sights, sounds and smells of your bustling Parisian neighbourhood. The day is yours to do as you please. Go for a walk down the busy, cobblestone streets and pop in to a boulangerie for some freshly baked chocolate bread. Or find a spot at a sunlit, street side café, order a chilled Chardonnay and people watch. Smile. You’re in Paris. (Overnight at your hotel in Paris.)

Palais Galliera & Fragonard Perfume Museum & Boutique

Experience 1 - Private tour of the Paris Fashion Museum: Palais Galliera (1.5 hours) Spend the afternoon at the Palais Galliera on a private tour of its renowned archives. Follow our curator as they walk you through the history of French haute couture over the centuries. Admire the varied styles of attire, marvel at the workmanship and gape at fashion treasures donated by icons like the Duchess of Windsor. Take home juicy snippets of fashion trivia to mull over, until you can come again. Note: This tour has been arranged exclusive for you. The Palais Galliera is otherwise closed to the general public due to renovation. Experience 2 – Visit to the Fragonard Perfume Museum & Boutique (2.5hours) At the Fragonard, meet a Nose. Yes, that’s what an expert Perfumer is called because of their fine sense of smell. Take a master class in fragrance making and create your own scent. Then think of who you want to gift it to. Next up, is a tour of the museum. Get your fill of perfumery history and discover why French perfumes are some of the most renowned in the world. Note: If you’re feeling peckish and would like to stop for a nice, little lunch. We recommend L’Opéra, the restaurant inside the Palais Garnier Opera House. It’s got some delish vegetarian options as well.

Yves Saint Laurent Museum & Baccarat Museum

For students of fashion, it is a veritable treasure. For lovers of the brand, it is heaven. We’ve arranged a morning tour for you with a private and certified, English speaking guide. Ask as many questions as you like. Note: The new Spring exhibition showcases emblematic designs like the famous Mondrian dresses, and gives access to Saint Laurent’s studio and office.

EXPERIENCE 2 – Gourmet dinner & Tasting session @ Le Clarence.

Note: Prince Robert de Luxembourg is heir to the famous Clarence Dillon wine estates, including the Premier Grand Cru Classé Chateau Brion, often considered the world’s first luxury brand going back to the 16th century.
