Ma Vie à Paris Guide




Ma Vie à Paris Guide by Astier de Villatte
4th Edition (NEW)

Ma Vie à Paris in English.

With its pretty golden edge and its schoolboy plastic cover, it looks enough like a novel to prevent the reader from being confused with a tourist. It is printed with lead blocks on high bulk paper, in one of the last typographic printing presses still professionally producing books in France. Enriched with no fewer than two hundred new addresses, new venues, and meticulous updates on prices, opening times, atmosphere, and decor. The two creators, Ivan and Benoît, have devoted special pages to cabarets, wonderful places not just for tourists: institutions such as the Comédie Française, theaters, second-hand bookstalls, and restaurants open on Sunday and Monday evenings. As always, they have focused on craftsmanship and exceptional secret addresses. This latest edition features a thick central section of photos, like a book within a book, a new cover design, and 416 pages.

In 2000, they opened the boutique at 173 rue Saint Honoré, which also presented their other creations for the home: titanium cutlery, borosilicate glassware and above all the wonderful collection of traditionally printed notebooks.

In 2008 they decided to join forces with Japanese fragrance company Takasago and together begin creating luxury scented products. Working with their associates Emilie Massed and Françoise Caron, the star perfumer at Takasago fragrance Astier de Villatte’s range of scented products was born
