Paris. One of my favorite places in the world to spend my time. The history and architecture encourage endless amounts of  inspiration and if the streets could tell stories?! Oh my, many a dreams have been made in this city and many hearts have fallen in love.

At the top of  Pompidou Museum is a gorgeous panoramic restaurant called Le Georges, designed by architects Jakob + Mac Farlane. It’s my favorite place to drink champagne, have brunch and take in the city. Take your loved ones or relax there after spending a few hours roaming through the galleries. The pink glitter bathroom is a must see!

I read about a placed called Nose in WWD a few months before heading on my vacation this summer and made sure to add it to my list! It’s a perfumery that makes personal scents for some of my favorite brands including Diptyque, Malin + Goetz, and Odin.

When you go visit you can ask to have a personal scent picked out for you. They give you wine or coffee to enjoy while you take a series of surveys to discover your perfect scent. I hung out there for a good hour and went through an incredibly fun “perfume tasting” experience. At the end, I picked a perfume caked Damascene, that, funny enough, was made in LA. I bought another one called “Jane has a Gun”, which  I ended up purchasing because of it’s light, everyday fresh scent.

If you get a chance to stop by there, it is a couple doors down from Christophe Robin’s salon, which is a gorgeous space as well. He makes  one of my favorite volumizing sprays and hair masks .sunniebrook_paris12

 

This photo of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg and was taken from my cozy bed at Hotel Amour. Every room in this hotel is different. It has a very sexy vibe, along with a delicious restaurant downstairs where even the locals like to  come and have a nice bottle of wine and meal.

At the gorgeous Sacre Coeur. I actually was not well this day but the friends I was traveling with took this photo because it was such a gorgeous day and I was having a bit of FOMO being stuck in bed . . . but the tea and croissants in bed made me feel pretty happy.

So much inspiring art at Pompidou . . .It’s rare that I have free time to just wander aimlessly around. But spending my time in museums is like food for my creative soul and gives me new ideas for silhouettes when creating hairstyles.
