After an 18 month overhaul costing €500k (£431,100, US$609,200), marine skincare brand Phytomer
has opened the doors of its second Parisian spa location.
As of May, the company opened Phytomer Spa Trocadéro and began offering guests a host of its signature marine-powered massages and face treatments for a revitalising break from city life.
The restyled 125sq m two-level spa is located just 15 minutes from the Eiffel Tower in Paris’ 16th arrondissement and is completed with four sophisticated treatment rooms fitted out with high-end equipment from Lemi and RKF Luxury Linen.
Treatment rooms have been designed to offer clients an escape and include plush light coloured curtains for a soothing atmosphere.
Each room has been completed with a unique design and is named after a famous Brittany coast landmark in the northwest of France which is home to Phytomer’s birthplace – called Saint-Malo – and its exquisite natural ingredients.
One of the two premium treatment rooms, named Cézembre, includes both a shower and a Japanese-style sauna, while the second luxury retreat – called Cancale – features a shower.
The facility also houses a hand and feet beauty treatment area, retail area and large reception area for pre-treatment consultations between therapists and clients and guidance on buying products.
Phytomer Spa Trocadéro has been completely renovated by Saint Malo-based interior designer Dominique Tosiani to reflect the brand’s natural, high-end approach and ocean-inspired philosophy.
The soft touches used in the spa – including wooden textures, tapestries, a deep blue palette and soft lighting – are intended to create a comforting haven in the heart of Paris.
Tosiani also designed Phytomer’s first spa in Sant-Malo, which opened in 2015, and its flagship Parisian spa which opened in Paris’ 8th arrondissement in 2018.
Phytomer expects to see a return on investment in five years and is currently targeting local clientele looking for high-quality services, soft touch and discretion.
Mathilde Gédouin-Lagarde, Phytomer deputy GM, told Spa Business
: “We’re always proud to have the opportunity to tell our story, share our values and contribute to the overall wellbeing of Parisians. The connections between Brittany and Paris in this arrondissement are particularly tight so having another flagship in Paris made sense.”
