L’HÔTEL DE CRILLON AND ITS BOUTIQUE’S
Built in 1765 and converted into a hotel in 1909, the Hôtel de Crillon is today one of the twenty-five luxury “palace” hotels in France, a highly-prized distinction it was awarded in 2018 after four long years of work. Standing on the Place de la Concorde, at one of Paris’ most prestigious crossroads, the hotel is chock full of surprises, not least of which is its boutique and its selection of items that are as luxurious as they are niche. Here’s a look at its must-have products.
The Officine Universelle Buly range of bath products
Old is the new cool. Launched in 1803, the Officine Universelle Buly took a wild gamble on staying relevant without the slightest alteration to its apothecary DNA, and succeeded, even managing to establish itself as an indispensable chic brand. Its bath range includes a shampoo, conditioner and a body lotion.
Body Lotion €40
The Special Edition Hôtel de Crillon Merino wool scarf
Unisex and available in five colors, the scarf is a special edition designed by La Maison de la Maille for the Hôtel de Crillon. Knitted in the Maison’s workshops using 100% Merino wool thread composed of high quality fibers, the scarf is embroidered with a golden C for Crillon. Luxury, comfort, chic and timelessness all rolled into one.
Colors available: camel - navy blue - corail - fuchsia - green
The Hôtel de Crillon velvet slippers
What could be more elegant than a pair of blue velvet slippers with the C for Crillon embroidered on them in golden thread? You don’t think so? Well, that’s not surprising. This is probably the most “rich effect” product on the boutique’s shelves. And if you want to spice up those duller moments in your life, I recommend a pair of these slippers for wearing at home.
Available sizes: 37 to 43
Color: midnight blue and gold
The Hôtel de Crillon baseball cap
With its baseball-inspired design, its turquoise logo embroidered on black cotton and a price that makes it great value for money, this special edition cap created for the Hôtel de Crillon is far and away the coolest item on display.

The Naomi Goodsir candle for Hôtel de Crillon
When an Australian milliner who has become a leading light in the world of alternative perfumery teams up with a Parisian palace, what is the result? A candle with an understated design and a fragrance that I suggest you check out for yourself in the boutique...

“Choupette” plush toy by Steiff
You always need an object that plays the role of outsider. And at the Crillon boutique it is the “Choupette” plush toy by Steiff that deserves this title. This rather realistic animal made of synthetic fur, priced at almost 600 euros, was created as homage to Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld’s legendary pet cat.
