Galerie ARCANES

This gallery reflects the personalities of two associates who created it : Anne Deconinck and Geoffrey Renaud, who started at Drouot or at the Saint-Ouen flea market. Specialized in decorative arts of the 20th century (1920-1970), the gallery exhibits Jacques Quinet or Louis Sognot as well as decorators who are less well-known by the general public (Zimmerman, Avril, Ico Parisi), but it also shows contemporary ceramic.

Galerie KREO

Until 1999, Didier et Clémence Krzentowski directed an agency in charge of planning meetings between designers and manufacturers. But they decided to get closer to the public by opening a design gallery, first in the 13th arrondissement, then considering the international success of their exhibitions, in Saint-German-des-Près. The gallery produces and presents exclusively the creations of the brothers Bourroulec, Jasper Morrison, Marc Newson, Alessandro Mendini, James Irvine or Martin Szekely but also presents a selection of beautiful lights (from the 1950s to nowadays) by Ingo Maurer, Gino Sarfatti or Achille Castiglioni.

AESOP


 

The Australian brand of organic and trendy cosmetics decided to open its first European boutique in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-prés. Its philosophy is to offer well-targeted and high-quality care products without omitting that we also love products that give us sensorial pleasure, a little bit as a spa can offer.

 

 

Every product is made with a mix of high-quality and concentrated ingredients : essences of plants very much sought-after (tea tree, bitter orange, tangerine, coriander, geranium) with delicate and refined perfumes. There are no animal ingredients and the synthetic preservatives are reduced to the minimum and are replaced by vegetable products. We also like the way products are presented : in simple and opaque bottles, in order to preserve them from ultraviolet rays and to preserve their integrity.

LUBIN

Everything started with Pierre-François Lubin, who created his Maison de Parfumerie (Perfume shop) in 1798, to give to “Incroyables” (the Incredible Dandies) and to “Merveilleuses” (the fine ladies) (our ancestors!) perfumed ribbons, masks for balls and face powder, but most of all, his famous “eau vivifiante”(invigorating-bracing water) which became “L’Eau de Lubin” (Lubin’s Water). Lubin’s fame reached empress Joséphine and Pauline Bonaparte, and he became their favorite before becoming the one of Marie Hélène de Bourbon and of all European sovereigns. One century later, in the Roaring twenties, a new perfume is created every year. The Art Deco perfume bottles are designed by Julien Viard and Maurice Depinoix and the luxurious editions are made of Baccarat Crystal.

Lubin’s perfumes are the symbol of French elegance, particularly in the United-States, and until 1975 success has continued before the brand felt into oblivion with the massive appearance on the market of perfumes made by top fashion designers. In 1999, Gilles Thévenin, director of creation at Guerlain at that time, decides to give a new life to Lubin, which still represents to him the quintessence of French luxury. It is a titanic project but, fortunately, he has a great part of the 450 scents created by the brand and he decides, with Olivia Giacobetti’s help (one of the famous noses of French perfumery, remember En Passant at Frédéric Malle) to put some of them back on the market, alternating with the creations of new fragrances.
