EMAIL DIAMANT: This is a RED toothpaste used by old men and cool kids.
EMBRYOLISSE: This is THE classic face/anywhere cream in France---it came out in a big way when JANE BIRKIN and CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG said that they used it.
CREALINE: The best face and eye makeup remover ever. It's in every professional makeup artist's bag. They all buy it in France! I brought back a mini format too.
SPRAY DE RICQLES: Carol Lim's pick! An all-natural breath spray in an beautifully designed spray. Carol makes everyone a convert to this super-cute spray.
RICQLES ALCOOL DE MENTHE: A 170 year-old French classic. Mint alcohol that is said to treat all types of malaise. In French elementary schools they put a drop on a sugar cube and give it to kids! We love the bottle...
The pharmacy I stocked up at was at 61 rue de Seine in the 6th.
Bringing back souvenirs from travels far and wide has always been part of the ethos of Opening Ceremony. From the first buying trip to Hong Kong in 2002, Carol and Humberto have been stocking their stores with incredible goodies from around the world. Part of the fun of travel is bringing back unique stuff. I've always been into supermarkets and pharmacies in different countries. There's nothing like an old-school Italian tube of toothpaste or Indian kohl. On our recent trip to Paris, I went to a pharmacie and bought some of the cult classics that I love: just for you! Exclusively available at Opening Ceremony at Ace Hotel (at the store only!).
