The brand new and chic, Dior Institut at the Plaza Athenee.
The “Marie Antoinette Facial” at the Four Seasons Hotel George V
(130 euros for 50 minutes) is really more like a facial and body massage combination, all executed using orange blossom-scented products—Marie Antoinette’s preferred scent. Afterward, enjoy rose, pistachio and chocolate macaroons and orange blossom tea. Steam away any residual stress in the hammam (Turkish steam bath) and, later, you’ll feel like a queen.
Check out the Galerie at George V, a lounge area where afternoon tea is served, and don’t miss the Fleur d’infusion des 4 Saisons, the hotel’s signature herbal blend.
