Start at Place du Palais-Royal (M: Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre, Exit 3). With the Louvre behind you and the Palais in front, head towards the one-way street and turn left onto rue Saint-Honoré (SH). Pass Café Ruc on your left, and further down at #256 the charmant Café Verlet is a cosy haven for single-estate coffees and teas. The discreet shop façade across the street at #173 is Astier de Villatte / 42 70 74 13 / for quirky, old-fash glazed earthenware. Zip quickly across the street to espadrille central #264 Castañer / 53 45 96 12, they have men's styles in summer. Detour left at rue St-Roch if you fancy a nest-feather, with stops at #7 Tsé & Tsé / tse-tse.com / and #9 Sarah Lavoine / sarahlavoine.com, otherwise carry on down SH to Fragonard at #203, for vintage pongs and togs, then make a right up rue de la Sourdière and treat yourself to a bespoke bag at #11 LaContrie (see Standout Stores). Pop into Poncho Gallery / 40 20 99 40 / next door for a touch of cashmere, and inquire at #12 Atelier Vertumne / 42 86 06 76 / about their phenomenal floral arranging classes, then round the corner onto rue St-Hyacinthe where nothing should come between you and your Notify jeans at # 1 / 44 50 05 00 / notify.fr. Pecky? Sate grumbly tums at Au Bistro (see Lunch) on the next corner. After lunch, turn left and cross the street to the world-famous concept store Colette next door at 213 rue SH / 55 35 33 90, then nip left to have a spa-rty at L'Appartement 217 (see Spa). Cross again for cuddly gents' cashmere at #334 Exemplaire / 42 61 35 17 / exemplaire.com / or stay on the left side, and set back in the courtyard at #231 is divine Fifi Chachnil / 42 61 21 83. Her marabou-trimmed teasers will have your hubby on his knees-ers, and as if that weren't enough, here also is dishy Jean-Paul Hévin. Swoon! Chocs, bras, leather, is this paradise..? Buzz yourself into Lydia Courteille's beautiful jewellery shop next door / 42 61 11 71. At #348 is Arnault's darling Moynat / moynat.com / leather shop, beside the house of personalised Parisian perfumes Ex Nihilo at #352 / 40 15 93 77. Onward, follow your nose left at fragrant Annick Goutal / 42 60 52 82 / onto the pretty rue de Castiglione. Always wanted a nifty family crest? La Maison Agry at #14 / 42 60 65 10 / has been engraving impeccably since 1825. Next door is artisan glovemaker Causse at #12 / 49 26 91 43. Exit and cross over into rue de Mont Thabor. There's bespoke men's wear at #26 Eglé, while Ferdi at #32 / 42 60 82 52 / is great for burgers or a tasty tortilla española. Carry on to #38 for divine fine jewellery at White Bird / 58 62 25 86 / then prepare for an olfactory adventure opposite at #21 Frédéric Malle Éditions de Parfums / 42 22 16 89. Ok. Exit and nip to the end of Mont Thabor, and turn left onto rue Cambon for Pierre Hermé's choc and macaron heaven / 43 54 47 77 / and Cadolle / 42 60 94 22 / who invented the bra. Now, either plop your bot for a well-earned Martini at #2 Flottes / 42 60 80 89, or if a sugar fix is what you need, retrace and head the other way down Cambon to the cnr of Saint-Honoré, which brings you very close to Ladurée for yet another macaron – just turn left into Saint-Honoré and two streets up to 16 rue Royale. Didn't you do well!
