Big news out of Paris: Le Royal: Monceau, Raffles Paris has opened its highly anticipated spa, designed by living style legend Philippe Starck. The white-on-white retreat was conceived entirely by the designer—from the custom furnishings and wall of framed mirrors to the glittering swimming pool measuring 92 feet in length, the largest of any hotel in Paris. The first spa from My Blends by Clarins has seven treatment rooms, a fitness center with all the latest equipment, and separate relaxation rooms for men and women each featuring a hammam, ice fountain, laconium, sauna, and shower experience. Personal trainers and pool coaches are available.

Olivier Courtin developed My Blend for Clarins, a range of fully customizable skincare products designed for the individual needs of every skin type at every age. Best of all: The bespoke facial treatments are exclusive to Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris. Starting with an in-depth skin analysis to determine the biological age of the skin, the treatment includes an expert application of personalized products by My Beauty Coach, and finishes off with a Clarins makeup session. Each guest also receives a two-week supply of their personalized skincare products My Blend Day and Night Essentials with Emergency Boosters.
