Make a splash with new sum­mer scent Tory Burch Bel Azur.

Boston Common - - CONTENTS -

Monaco is known as a posh play­ground for the global elite. Yet, down a cy­press-lined av­enue, tucked beyond the buzz of the glit­ter­ing yachts, casi­nos and bou­tiques, a qui­eter form of lux­ury awaits at the Ho­tel Metropole Monte-Carlo and newly bowed Spa Metropole by Givenchy (metropole. com/en/spa-mon­te­carlo). The spa ex­pe­ri­ence is crafted to evoke the cre­ation of a cou­ture gar­ment with Mon­sieur Hu­bert de Givenchy him­self. A pristinely groomed spa as­so­ciate hands me a tablet on which I se­lect not only my mu­sic and mas­sage pres­sure pref­er­ence, but also build my per­son­al­ized mood board re­call­ing the sounds, scents and vis­ual ele­ments that res­onate most with my per­son­al­ity. Af­ter­ward, the at­ten­dant promptly de­liv­ers my sig­na­ture scent—spritz­ing my per­sonal pochette to wear in the pocket of my robe as I em­bark on the sen­sory jour­ney. Nes­tled in one of the 10 treat­ment rooms, the in­dul­gent Le Soin Noir Re­nais­sance In­té­grale un­folds over a lux­u­ri­ous two-hour sym­phony of mas­sage and fa­cial. Fea­tur­ing the most pre­cious of all the Givenchy skin­care col­lec­tions, Le Soin Noir em­ploys al­gae as a re­gen­er­a­tive agent, packed with anti-ag­ing ef­fects de­liv­ered through a trade­mark mas­sage tech­nique. For the grand fi­nale, a cool blast of cryother­apy to re­fresh and re­new the skin. In a day when true lux­ury is de­fined by ex­pe­ri­ence and per­son­al­iza­tion, Ho­tel Metropole Monte-Carlo and Spa Metropole by Givenchy both de­liver a cus­tom­ized ex­pe­ri­ence that can only be com­pared to haute cou­ture. “The se­cret to el­e­gance is be­ing your­self,” de Givenchy fa­mously said. In­deed, Mon­sieur. –Phebe Wahl
