ELLE (Canada) - - Wellness -

THE FIX YOU WANT TO BAN­ISH STRESS AND LOOK SUPREMELY WELL RESTED. THE TREAT­MENT THE IN­CRED­I­BLE LE GRAND SOIN STOPS TIME— IN YOUR MIND AND ON YOUR SKIN. THE SPOT 15 PLACE VENDÔME. A Chanel bag is more than “just” a hand­bag, so it’s hardly surprising that the iconic house’s first spa has re­de­fined the spa ex­pe­ri­ence. Lo­cated in the land­mark Ritz Paris—where Coco Chanel her­self lived for over three decades—the spa fea­tures five sig­na­ture rooms, each door marked with the num­ber of an iconic Chanel item, such as No. 22, for the famed fra­grance, or the 2.55, after the must-have purse. In fact, iconic mo­tifs are ev­ery­where, from the beige-and-black sig­na­ture Coro­man­del screens and lac­quered gold de­tails in the rooms to the Camilla flow­ers—Coco’s favourite—on the treat­ment bed. While wear­ing a melt­ingly soft robe and be­fore the fa­cial begins, you’re served a detox­i­fy­ing and re­gen­er­at­ing cock­tail as you en­gage in a gen­tle yet in-depth con­ver­sa­tion with the aesthetician about your life­style, diet, sleep habits and stress lev­els. Le Grand Soin is an all-senses treat­ment: Light and sound are in­te­grated into the dif­fer­ent stages of the ex­pe­ri­ence (and lull you into a deep state of re­lax­ation) while gen­tle ex­fo­li­a­tion, sooth­ing masks and firm­ing mois­tur­iz­ers such as Sublim­age La Crème Yeux coax skin into be­ing its best self. Dif­fer­ent mas­sage tech­niques are used through­out the two- to three-hour treat­ment, in­clud­ing a my­ofas­cial re­lease, a foot pres­sure point and a del­i­cate flut­ter­ing fin­ger­tip mas­sage for the face. Re­sults are im­pres­sive: Com­plete re­lax­ation is achieved, and your skin is left glow­ing and no­tice­ably re­gen­er­ated.
