Falling in love with Mon Paris









So about a month ago I was invited back to Paris for the launch of the new YSL fragrance 'Mon Paris' inspired by the city of lovers, Paris. We were invited to see Paris upside down in 24 hours! (yes, you read that correctly!). To discover another side from the regular spots you would be familiar with and see the city upside down. The whole trip was inspired by the new fragrances back story of falling head over heels for someone that your world is turned upside down. It was such a world wind 24 hours but it honestly was one of the best trips I've ever been on. 

We started with a lunch visit to HAI KAI. A hidden organic dishes wonderland that definitely cured served up some amazing food. Highly recommend to go with a few friends and try pretty much all the dishes! Also don't forget to try the anchovy! Next it was straight into the perfume workshop where we learned about the ingredients that went into the production of this perfume. I never learned so much in an hour! All of the ingredients, how they are sourced and where they all come from was so interesting to me that it gave me another insight into the fragrance industry. I also learned that there was some jasmine flowers in the mix - that's why I was so drawn to this scent! You guys know how much I love jasmine! It's such a strong feline floral scent which is something I'm not used to but I quickly fell in love with it for sure. Such a great scent for summer thats totally going to turn your world upside down! I've never come across a fragrance so uplifting before! 

After our workshop - we headed straight out around the city on these moto taxis! Such an incredible experience and it was definitely the highlight of the trip. Something I need to do again when I'm back in Paris. We got to see a lot of the city and stopped at the Eiffel tower for 5 minutes for photos. I was happy as I finally got to see it close up! (deffo could of gotten closer but next time for sure!) I literally was riding around the city with a huge smile underneath the heavy but comfy helmets! I really record you flag those guys down whenever you're in the city next. I think from that experience, it just made me sure even more than I really do love Paris and it's for sure one of my favourite cities.

We finished the night with the YSL 'Mon Paris' fragrance launch dinner and the party on top of the Centre Pompidou! Such an incredible building, space and view all rolled into one! To see the whole city at night from the usual day light was definitely the goal of seeing Paris upside down. 

From this trip I've discovered so many new places, people and vibe that paris has to offer and I can't wait to go back! Already trying to see if I can squeeze in a quick weekend away! You can get your hands on the fragrance here...
