Our story with Juliette begins a few years ago, when we discovered her chocolate shop on Sainte-Catherine, just a few blocks from Etiket boutique (we’re practically neighbours!). Our love for Juliette & Chocolat grew when we learned more about the woman behind the brand. 

In fact, Juliette & Chocolat was founded by a beautiful woman named… you guessed it, Juliette! All you need to do is follow her Instagram page to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how she runs her successful business with her husband and her 5 adorable kids. We wanted to learn more about how Juliette & Chocolat came about and how Juliette juggles life as a successful business owner, mother, wife and friend.

How did the idea of creating Juliette & Chocolat come to you?

I’m a foodie. Always have been, and I love to cook. Eating has always been one of my life’s greatest pleasures. I’ve always had a weakness for sweets. I can’t imagine ending a meal without a dessert, that just doesn’t make sense to me! When I go out to restaurants, I always start by asking for the dessert menu. Choosing my dessert first allows me to then choose my main course.

I got the idea of creating Juliette & Chocolat when I was at the end of my studies in Finance. At the time, I was looking for start-up ideas. Because I have such a sweet tooth, and because I wasn’t able to find any hot chocolate in Montreal like my grandmother used to make (!) the idea came to me to open a chocolate bar, similar to a coffee shop, but where one could sit and drink a hot chocolate. This idea then led to a menu filled with chocolate recipes, from hot chocolates and pastries to fondues and candies. I wanted Juliette & Chocolat to be a paradise for chocolate lovers. Finally, wanting there to be a French flare to the business, I added salty and sweet crepes to the menu.

With your own business and a family of five, how do you juggle it all and have time for yourself?

Hahahaha! I’m often asked this question. Honestly, it all comes down to being organized, while also being laid-back and taking life as it comes. Every hour of my week is organized, and I have “to-do lists” for every part of my life. I have a day planner that allows me to stay on top of everything. However, if at the end of the day, the house is a mess, the dirty dishes are still on the counter and the kids go to bed a little past their bedtime, I don’t lose sleep over it. I’d say that I also have an amazing support system in my personal and professional lives (even though the two overlap). I have friends and colleagues that are as invested in my business as I am and who want to see me succeed. I’m very blessed in that respect. 

How do you start the day? What is your morning routine?

My mornings are always chaotic: imagine a house of 7 people who all went to bed late the night before! I help the kids get ready for school, make sure I have my eye makeup on … it’s a little like a race against the clock, though we do manage to eat breakfast all together. No coffee for me, I have enough energy as it is! Instead, I make a healthy, vitamin-filled smoothie for us all to drink before heading out the door!

I then drop the kids off at school. Making sure everyone gets to school on time, with their schoolbooks, lunch and PE clothes is a challenge… it’s like a little victory every morning.

What does your everyday beauty routine look like?

Morning: My routine is remarkably simple. I hydrate my skin with a cream I have on hand (I’m lucky enough to receive beauty products as gifts, so I switch them up a lot).

Night: My nighttime routine is also simple. I wash my face with cold water and a gentle cleanser. Right now I’m using the Peoni Cleanser from JB Skin Savvi. After that, I hydrate my skin with the Peoni Oil from JB Skin Savvi. 

Do you do something special to take care of your skin?

Once or twice a week I will deep clean my skin with a Clarisonic brush. Besides that, I hydrate my face and body every night.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?

Happy people are beautiful, be happy!

Who is your beauty inspiration?

Audrey Hepburn

What does your makeup routine look like?

I apply makeup everyday but I keep it simple. I apply a kohl liner that I bought at a souk in Damas when I lived there. It’s a black liner that stays put all day. I love it! After that, I apply a few layers of mascara. From time to time, I add a neutral eyeshadow and a pop of blush to the cheeks.

What beauty products can we always find in your handbag?

Hahahaha, I have more toys in my purse to keep my kids entertained than I do beauty products. I always have a lip balm (does that count?). Sometimes, I’ll have a lipstick in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. 

What’s your signature fragrance?

I’m a huge fan of Angel by Thierry Mugler. It’s a sweet, candy scent and so enticing to me. I have no idea how I found it, but I can recognize it anywhere!

What do you do to unwind at the end of a busy day?

I play with my kids, I read, I cook, I watch movies with my family, I never run out of ways to unwind at the end of the day. I always find time to relax and to ground myself. It’s the key to not burning out!

Finally, what’s your guilty pleasure?

A good meal with a delicious dessert at the end.

Want a fresh, glowing, youthful complexion? Exfoliation is key!
Skin Care

What do Hydroxy Acids do for your skin?

Who doesn't want skin that looks fresh, rejuvenated and glowing? The question is, how and what products do you use. In this blog post, we tackle everything you need to know about exfoliation!

Who doesn’t want skin that looks fresh, rejuvenated and glowing? The question is, how and what products do you use. Hydroxy Acids exfoliate which means they remove dead skin cells and improve skin cell turnover. That means fresh, glowing skin that better reflects light.

Our skin naturally exfoliates of course but as we age and as the result of environmental factors including unprotected sun exposure, the natural shedding process of the skin may slow down or even stop. That will leave us with dull, dry or even flaky skin. We may see enlarged pores, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone and yes, even more wrinkles.

Hydroxy Acids – either AHA (alpha hydroxy acid – glycolic and lactic acids) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid – beta hydroxy or salicylic acid) are one way to help gently exfoliate the skin.

AHA: These work on the skin’s surface and are water soluble and we recommend for those with normal to dry or sun damaged skin because of their ability to work with natural moisturizing factors within the skin.

BHA: These work on the skin’s surface and inside the pores, are oil soluble and we recommend for normal to oily skin that is more prone to enlarged pores, acne and blemishes. BHA also has natural skin calming properties so it is gentle enough for people who experience redness or even rosacea.

Benefits:

  • Helps to soften lines and wrinkles
  • Will penetrate pores and exfoliate the pores
  • Stimulates collagen to increase elasticity and firmness
  • Helps to improve overall texture of the skin
  • Used correctly, will help with skin hydration
SkinCeuticals

We are often asked which is better or can I combine them. We suggest to use the one that is appropriate to your skin type and testing to see what works better for you. Everyone’s skin is different and will react differently to different products and ingredient strengths. Using both an AHA and BHA exfoliant at the same time may be too much. Alternate or use morning or night always after cleansing and toning. Start slowly and see how your skin reacts – we all have a tendency to want to go too quickly and that more is better. NOT TRUE! You may also want to look at different options, for example, using a BHA on oily areas and an AHA on the dryer ones. There are also products that have a combination of these two acids. It is important to not over-exfoliate and to always use a sunscreen as use of these products may make the skin more sun sensitive

AHA/ BHA CREAM from SKINMEDICA


If you are not sure which products are right for you, or when to use them, make sure you are asking a trained skin therapist who knows the products that you are using and also understands your skin and skin care goals.

Keep your complexion exfoliated and glowing with these AHA/BHA products!

The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Marc-Antoine Barrois is a French couturier who wants to take us to his planet B683, and he does this through a perfume that he created with the perfumer Quentin Bisch.
That is impossible you say?
Is it?

Monsieur Barrois is about creation and Monsieur Bisch is a perfumer. They took their childhood memories and they created something that they loved. They created a fragrance that comes from olfactive experiences that touched them, of elegant attaché cases, of gathering wood, of moments that can be defined and some that cannot. Moments that have been somehow put together into a fragrance. That fragrance is a world unto its own.

As Le Petit Prince, took great care of his planet B-612, Monsieur Barrois has created a beautiful scent full of memories and emotion that is his planet B683.
Very poetic you say?
When a perfume is truly great, is it not poetic and full of emotion and memories?

It makes you want to smell your wrist again where you sprayed it in the morning. Or steal back your lover’s shirt that he wore yesterday, so you may keep him close while he is gone.
This is not a perfume to spray on a blotter when you try it, spray it right on your skin, and be ready to travel to B683.
Just be warned, you may not want to come back.

THE NOTES OF B683

The primary note is spicy, made up of:
Black Pepper
Saffron
Chili
Nutmeg

The heart of the perfume is like a precious leather or suede and is made up of:
Violet leaf
Amber
Cistus Absolute
Musk

The base note is warm and woody and is made up of:
Patchouli
Santal Wood
Oak Moss
Ambroxan

Marc-Antoine Barrois
Marc-Antoine Barrois is a French couturier born from a northern French family who had made name for themsel- ves in the textile industry. From a very early age he was fascinated by his grandfather’s elegance that drove him to seek the art of simple luxury without ostentation but assuredly with finesse. After learning patterns, cutting and sewing as he was studying textile engineering, he designed his first collection in Lille in 2006. This success then led Marc-Antoine Barrois to work with Dominique Sirop, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jean-Claude Jitrois before creating his own Maison de Couture for men. Offering men what women have already in Haute Couture, Marc-Antoine Barrois designs unique suits, tuxedos and jackets for confidential clients seeking exclusivity.
The first MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS boutique opened in 2013 on rue de Budapest in Paris and offers Parisian crafted collections of jewels and accessories alongside his bespoke clothing.
As a result of the heart of the creative process, he defines his world as a new constellation offering handcrafted luxury in a place where service and a warm-spirit are prevailing.

Quentin Bisch
Quentin Bisch had a revelation that perfumes were going to be part of his life, when smelling Opium on his school teacher, at the age of 11. But his artistic and creative itinerary first started with music and theater. He lead for 5 years a theatrical group of professionals. When composing music, Quentin soon realized he was not using his meant-to-be instrument. He left everything behind and moved to Grasse to learn perfumery. A year later Jean Guichard recognized his inner talent and integrates him to the Perfumery School at Givaudan. In 2011, he finally joined the creative team of Givaudan Fine Fragrance in Paris, as a perfumer. From then he has created many perfumes among which Angel Muse and A*Men Ultra Zest for Mugler, Azzaro pour Homme FreeLight, Missoni de Missoni, Ambre Impérial for Van Cleef & Arpels, La Fin du Monde for Etat Libre d’Orange, Essencia and 7 for Loewe Sport, Fleur Narcotique for Ex Nihilo…
Quentin Bisch, likes more than anything to « create emotion, surprise, take people to journeys ».

Simon Tooley, Etiket brand creator and perfume enthusiast, shares his top fragrance picks for the upcoming fall season.
Simon Tooley

When fall comes around, just like we feel the need to change how we dress, I think we feel the need to change our fragrance. We tend to look to heavier scents; scents with notes of Amber, Oud, Vanilla or Patchouli come to mind. It doesn’t mean we have to change our signature scent if we have one, or perhaps we have one for the fall that we only bring out then. For me when fall hits, I definitely change my fall scent wardrobe, and I look forward to wearing old favourites or trying something new.

Thirty-Three EDP by Ex Idolo
One of my favourites is Thirty-Three from Ex Idolo, this scent with thirty-three-year-old oud, takes me on a journey that includes notes of rubber and a deep sexy dry down. On a woman, it is just as beautiful.
Thirty-Three by Ex Idolo

Thirty-Three is a fragrance created from hand blended and very special ingredients. Vintage Oud is the soul of the fragrance, distilled in 1980 and aged until its release in 2013.

Suede de Suède by Mona di Orio
I love the latest scent from Mona di Orio, Suède de Suède which is somehow perfect for fall, it reminds me of a hand-made pair of suede gloves that I bought in Lisbon, deep brown and trimmed in red, this fragrance is much more than suede of course. It has a rich earthiness with the patchouli, my most favourite note, and leaves me with the warmth of suede and musk at the end.

Inspired by memories of the Mona di Orio Swedish in-house perfumer Fredrik Dalman, Suede de Suède unveils a perfume that evocatively caresses the skin like soft Swedish gloves. A smooth woody suède accord warms you like the silky backside of a fur.

Savoy Steam by Penhaligon’s
One of the newest launches from Penhaligon’s, Savoy Steam, is a surprising take on their original scent, Hammam Bouquet from 1872, it has an Englishness that has both humour and sexiness and the touch of rosemary and eucalyptus are a perfect foil to the rose and pink pepper.
Savoy Steam Penhaligon's
A fitting tribute to the original Penhaligon’s scent, Hammam Bouquet, Savoy Steam has top notes of bergamot, lemon, eucalyptus, mint, pink pepper and rosemary; middle notes of rose, geranium, cardamom, hedione and tea; base notes are benzoin, incense, vanilla and white musk.

Close Up by Olfactive Studio
I think one of the recent launches from Olfactive Studio, Close Up, deserves attention with Amber and Tonka, and a Green Coffee top note that makes me smile. There is a richness that just makes you want to spray it on your turtleneck so you feel that intensity each time you wear it.
Close Up Olfactive Studio
Intense and contrasting, the amber tones combine with a freshness. It has a full- bodied character that blends seamlessly with anise and green coffee. Zooming in even closer, each ingredient gains in intensity and distinctness.

London by Gallivant
Finally, my pick for a fragrance that goes from spring to summer to fall and into our cold winters is from Gallivant, called London. It may be the reference to the Pet Shop boys but who doesn’t want to be an East End Boy or a West End Girl? The rose mixed with leather, sandalwood, patchouli and cedarwood take you from the of ce to the “pub” to meet your “chum” after work. My go to scent this fall so far.
GALLIVANT LONDON
It’s a floral leather fragrance. With a watery green head, of cucumber and violet leaves. A floral heart, with Rose de Mai Absolute, rose oil and orris root. And base notes of leather, sandalwood, patchouli and cedarwood.

Come meet our experts to find out what would be your ideal fall scent: a scent that would suit you like your wardrobe.

This is a reblog of a review by Lucas from Chemist in the Bottle about Istanbul and Brooklyn from Gallivant.

Road trip, two from Gallivant

It’s incredibly flattering for me when once in a while I receive an email from a perfume brand stating that they’ve been following my blog for a while & like my writing style, therefore they’d like to send me samples. For me it’s a great way of discovering new things but also to develop more personal relationship with a brand, because I have that 1 message I can later use for further contact. Few weeks ago I was approached in a way mentioned by Nick Steward, founder of Gallivant. The name rang a bell in my mind, so of course I was happy to try their fragrances. Gallivant as a verb means “to go around from one place to another in the pursuit of pleasure or entertainment” while the brand sources their perfume ideas from nomad life and being a traveller. Perfume is a destination here.gallivantIstanbul (shown above left) embodies “this feeling of an ancient city, but with a freshness, a modernity. An old luxury and a new confidence.” Its composition starts with a tart bergamot that is so diffusive it feels more like a shade cast by a citrus tree on a sunny day. It’s gone in a quick poof, stepping down to make room for cardamom. The latter one is more and spicy, with a crunchy and roasted background. There’s even something slightly caramelized about it. Its impression is followed by red thyme which gradually builds up an herbal aspect of the scent. This one is also a bit sweaty. Heart of the fragrance hides lavender absolute that is a marriage between floral and herbaceous elements. As far as I’m concerned I found its aroma to be quite dry & more herbal than floral. Geranium is a source of temporary feeling of something crispy and green but later it develops a sharp, minty undertone. Because it seems a bit metallic it feels slightly disturbing, at least to me. Later on I get opoponax and patchouli. They blend nicely together to create a multi-layer of woody, balsamic, earthy and sweet notes. It’s a source of pleasure in Instanbul the fragrance. The base is firing up with generous dose of rich vanilla, supported by beautiful, creamy spiciness of tonka bean. Amber adds a sensual warmth while sandalwood brings forth a seductive vibe. The drydown has some heft to it but doesn’t feel too heavy. It’s definitely the most interesting part of this scent.

Brooklyn (shown above right) according to the brand is about “non-stop go-go-go” while the perfume is meant to be “energetic with a creative and intellectual fizz.” In this case the opening is build around bergamot again but it lingers on skin, effusing tart, aromatic and zesty molecules. As soon as lemon and orange add their values, the perfume starts to be a kick of energy, very juicy, tasty and mouth-watering like a glass of freshly squeezed juice you could grab on your way to work. We have cardamom here again but much less accentuated, it’s all about citrus at the moment. However there is a twist to it when incense starts to sneak in, bringing some sheer smokiness with it. Who would have thought that it would smell so nice with lemon or bergamot. Later on Brooklyn juiciness becomes more clean. It smells of fresh air, clean cotton sheets with a little bit of ozonic notes. From citrus it gradually goes to pale, aquatic florals. I can smell silky magnolia and perhaps a little bit of water-lily but Gallivant uses a general term of transparent flowers. It does feel sheer, airy and with pastel colors. There’s also a gentle powdery vibe of iris here. The drydown has a fluffy musk accord blended with white woods that are delicate and that don’t add much weight to the scent. Amber (much lighter than in Istanbul) raises temperature a bit while benzoin listed among notes was barely there on my skin. Perhaps it was very subtle and got overlooked because of ambery note.

***

Both Istanbul and Brooklyn have decent projection and good longevity. They are interesting and quite easy to wear. Gallivant team decided to work with young perfumers  – Istanbul was created by Karine Chevallier while Brooklyn is a composition from Giorgia Navarra (trained by Bertrand Duchaufour). These 2 are a half of initial collection from Gallivant, other 2 represent London and Tel Aviv. Plus there will be another two appearing this fall. All fragrances are in eau de parfum concentration and since the brand is about exploring and discovering places, their bottle is travel friendly (and perfumista friendly) since it’s a 30 ml size. Feel like going to any of these two places?

SAVOY STEAM
The latest fragrance from Penhaligon’s
Penhaligon'sSavoy Steam is inspired by the first fragrance from Penhaligon’s, Hammam Bouquet, that was created in 1872 by William Penhaligon as a nod to the Turkish baths and saunas that were all the rage in London in that era. Where Hammam Bouquet is exotic, Savoy Steam is fastidiously clean; both beautiful scents in their own right.

Savoy Steam takes it’s name from the famous Savoy Turkish Baths that were at 92 Jermyn Street in London. The traditional Penhaligon’s bow on the bottle is made to look like a Turkish striped cotton towel.

This eau de parfum is a beautiful simple fragrance with notes of rose, pink pepper and geranium resolute. There is Tunisian rosemary that adds a spicy note and the base notes of incense, vanilla and white musk anchor the scent very subtly.

This is a fragrance for men or women and is an especially good scent for any man who wants to wear a rose scent but doesn’t want one that is inextricably mixed with leather and amber.

HAMMAM BOUQUET
The first fragrance from Penhaligon’s
Penhaligon's Hammam BouquetPenhaligon’s first scent, Hammam Bouquet, was dreamt up by William Penhaligon in 1872 after inhaling the steam and sulphurous aromas of the neighbouring Turkish baths. This first fragrance was Williams’ lifelong personal favourite and remains one of Penhaligon’s bestsellers today. The base notes include musk, amber and sandalwood, the middle notes are of roses, cedarwood, orris and jasmine, and the top notes are lavender and bergamot.
