Paris is one of my fave cities in the world, as it’s all about luxury, style and class. If you have been lucky enough to travel to the “City of Lights” you may have already heard of the famous Hotel Costes, a 5 star boutique hotel known as the den of opulence with one of the best bars in the world and an ultra chic courtyard cafe. Located in the heart of Paris, in a late 19th century building, this world renown hotel is the number one Parisian destination for models, actors, fashionistas and honeymooners from across the globe.
Hotel Costes has become famous for it’s luxurious atmosphere and phenomenal attention to detail, which has played an integral role in inspiring the hotel brand’s much adored Costes lifestyle line…think body & beauty products (nail polish, body lotion, dry oil, eau de toilette, bath flakes, etc), home fragrances; which captures the essence of the luxe property with it’s uber seductive ingredients, music (eclectic and psychedelic mix CD’s) and the beautiful limited edition Costes coffee table book with photos of the hotel by photographer Arno Nollen (only 800 copies made).
I obvi have some of these products in my condo as I adore them and I receive tons of compliments from guests when they visit. If traveling to Paris and staying at the Hotel Costes is not happening in your near future, you can mentally transport yourself there with these amazing products I cannot live without…
CURRENTLY BURNING: The Hotel Costes scented candle in White. Anyone who knows me well knows that I can’t get enough of scented candles, or any candles for that matter. This gorgeous scented option contains ginger with zests of lys flower and has hints of white cedar. It has a white, pure, soapy and clean scent with a bit of Spring, notes the candle’s description. The White candle burns at Hotel Costes “K”, near Trocadero since 2004.

CURRENTLY APPLYING: I literally DIE for this body lotion and attempt to use it sparingly but end up lathering my entire body in it after showering. This body lotion in deep crimson is filled with scents of juniper berries, coriander seeds, rosewood, incense, musk, laurel, white pepper, lavender, gin tonic, and spices. The bonus – it’s basically unisex as it’s not overly masculine or feminine so your Mister can use it too. I get stopped every time I use it. A must buy!

CURRENTLY SPRAYING: The most beautiful room spray you will ever smell in your life, I guarantee you will turn your nose up at Glade plug-ins for the remainder of your existence. The Hotel Costes home fragrance Brown spray gives out a rum and dust touch…so warm and inviting. This intoxicating scent has hints of waxed wood, rum, mahogany, bitter orange peel, paprika, and oak moss. It has been sprayed at the Hotel Costes on rue Saint Honore since 2001.
