Shopping personified: 10 products that are reflections of you
What if made-to-order were the height of luxury? In Le Pliage Personalized style, treat for yourself to these haute couture versions of everyday objects.
A bottle of perfume
When you come to our legendary store at 404 rue St Honoré, don’t forget to drop by the Guerlain shop at 392, where it’s all about fragrances. You can pick out your very own color of the famous 160-year-old “bee bottle” and fill it from one of their 18 perfume fountains. Next, choose any color ribbon, get your name engraved on the label and why not have your initials embroidered…
Another great excuse to give in to those legendary, ever-so-tempting treats that have been delighting taste buds since the mid-19th century. Not only are there more than 20 flavors and colors to choose from, but this pastry shop can personalize your macaroons with the symbol or message of your choice.
An iPad and an iPod
Engrave your name, initials, your latest motto or a lyric from your favorite band. It’s totally free and automatically on offer with every online purchase of an iPad or iPod.
In addition to their upscale one-of-a-kind perfumes, Diptyque (a.k.a. the brand that got you hooked on the scent of figs) also helps you create a custom home fragrance that is truly you. Do it by picking out three favorite scents from their “Mini candle bar” and lighting them at the same time. Need some inspiration? Check out a few winning combinations here.
And, more generally, any number of things in solid silver and silver-plated metal. USB key, luggage tag, picture frame, jewelry box, the list goes on. Here’s a peek at some of the accessories that Christofle can engrave with your name or initials.
