Reuters writes about Boutique

It's been a great week for Boutique in the press. Today, we are featured in an article on personal shopping on Reuters Life!, the lifestyle service of Reuters news agency. Here is an extract from the story:

But many shoppers in Paris do not just lack the time to hunt after latest trends, they also have trouble finding hide-away fashion treasures, said personal shopper Joelle Diderich.

"A lot of tourists who come to Paris tend to stick to the shopping districts that feature in guide books, like the Champs Elysees and large department stores, and miss out on the beautiful little shops that sell typically French products," said Diderich, who takes clients on tailor-made shopping sprees.

"Most of the time, I take people on walking tours. Paris has fantastic flea markets full of vintage clothes, in addition to super-chic shopping districts like Saint-Germain-des-Pres."

Boutique featured in The Times

Boutique personal shopping was featured this weekend in The Times Saturday magazine. Read the article here. I gave the newspaper's fashion editor Lisa Armstrong a tour while she was in Paris to cover the couture shows in July. Highlights included a visit to Parfums Frédéric Malle, a tour of cutting-edge boutiques including Véronique Leroy and a visit to the hidden part of the Marais district. She shopped up a storm - I won't give away anything more! If you too would like to book a tour, you can find full details on my website. I hope to meet you soon!

Simply called Kate, the scent features floral notes of orange flower, rose and magnolia with base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, amber and vetiver. The fragrance, which has been developed with Coty the people who also produce scents for Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez), will go on sale first in Asia and Europe, according to the French edition of Vogue magazine. The United States will have to wait an extra year.

PS: At first glance, the bottle looks a bit like Anna Sui perfume, don't you think?
