Promise by Dominique Ropion is our newest addition to the Middle East collection, and a perfume one does not easily forget. Two precious varieties of rose, lifted by apple, pink pepper and clove, and bound to a sensuous base of patchouli, cypriol and labdanum, celebrate one of the strongest bonds in human relationships, keeping one’s word.
Jakob + MacFarlane
13, rue des Francs Bourgeois
I have always loved Jakob + MacFarlane for its work in the restaurant Georges at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
The restaurant remains, to this day, a futuristic fantasy, perfectly unexpected.
It was not until I revisited the Florence Loewy bookstore in the Marais, home to Jakob + MacFarlane’s “hive” of plywood bookshelves, that I found inspiration for my own Marais boutique.
