cire trudon

cire trudon is one of the fabulous finds that i included in chic shopping paris, the book. i'd been walking by the rue de seine boutique for years, noting that they had a wide range of colored candles, but nothing special, per se. then, voila, overnight it seemed, the shop had completely reinvented itself, under the talents of stylist ramdane touhami. the boutique now stocks amazing scented candles [with such innovative inspirations as the Dada movement and the French Revolution], and was just featured in november's vanity fair. definitely worth a stop the next time you are in st. germain.

gem of a boutique


tucked into a quiet sidestreet in the marais is the newish showroom of stylist johanna braitbart. the tiny boutique carries her clutch purses, headbands, jewelry, and chapeaux, all infused with a modern twist on an era-gone-by.
