The place

Biologique Recherche has established its Ambassade de la Beauté, or beauty embassy, in central Paris in a hotel particulier on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées. The mansion, which is set back from the street by its own courtyard, was formerly the home of 20th century French politician Edouard Daladier. Ever since 1993, Biologique Recherche's 300 square meter flagship beauty institute has served to showcase all of the brand's areas of expertise. 2008 : Biologique Recherche's new management team met the designer- architect behind the Ambassade de la Beauté's new look at a furniture and design exhibition. Frédéric Gaunet went straight into high-end decorating after graduating from Camondo, the Paris-based school of interior design. He has successfully handled a complex list of specifications, reconciling the warmth, softness and privacy needed for an intimate, welcoming environment, with the technical aspects required by Biologique Recherche's methodology. The new interior features luxurious materials, like the pleated silk curtains and the handmade engraved gold leaf wave-shaped carved mirrors, on the one hand, and the Corian technical surfaces and the beauticians' mobile ergonomic chairs on the other.The choice of natural materials is intentional. The entire project was designed to reflect the rich, high concentrations of pure active ingredients which are used in the Biologique Recherche formulas. The Ambassade de la Beauté is a real home away from home! The entrance hall features two facing carpets made from bespoke colored wool that is rich in both quality and color.The carpets are reminiscent of two kidney beans that make up a cell.The armchairs are second skins with protective shells of silk velvet and seats of coated fabric shot with gold.The desks are made of natural oak wood with a matt finish to symbolize the perennial. All metal features, like handles, feet, etc. are made of nickel because its rawness is evocative of technology and it is sandblasted for tenderness. The booths feature white leather seats and Corian surfaces. The linen has been completely re-designed. The towels are soft and luxurious with dense gram-weights in bespoke colors embroidered with the brand's monogram. The lighting is cozy and intimate thanks to the gold collarettes around the bulbs. The fittings and furniture are entirely bespoke and crafted by carpenters and glass workers in the brand's trademark colors of blue, white and gold. The overiding theme is the skin, its texture, its Biologique Recherche has established its Ambassade de la Beauté, or beauty embassy, in central Paris in a hotel particulier on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées.

blanc   bleu   or

White

It represents absolute purity and authenticity, epitomizing the Biologique Recherche formulas which are highly concentrated, uncompromising and genuine. White is also candidus in Latin, the color worn in Ancient Rome by a "candidate", symbolizing someone whose condition will change. To a certain extent, this is what happens during each Biologique Recherche beauty care treatment : the vicious circle of anguish is transformed into a virtuous circle as soon as the skin becomes more beautiful. This sort of beauty could be illustrated in a quote from Francis Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night : "The image of someone who will not content himself with projecting what he was in his youth on ever-darkening screens, throughout his life, but who, on the contrary, is determined to grow and blossom fully. That sort of face will have an ageless beauty". ')
