Koch Parfymeri is not only a regular perfumery but also a skin care clinic. With a startup in Stavanger in 1896, Koch has had a great passion for beauty and high-end skin care products. Koch travels around the world to find the best products for skin, makeup, fragrance, body, and hair and has an incredibly unique brand selection. Some of my favorite brands are represented, such as Estee Lauder, Diptyque, Tom Ford, Oribe, and Elixir.
1. ESTEE LAUDER: Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti Aging Wake Up Balm
Estee Lauder has been one of my favorite brands for such a long time. I love how they keep developing great, innovative products, such as the Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti Aging Wake Up Balm. First of all, I love facial balms, and this one from Estee Lauder gives my skin an immediate glow. The facial balm work on your fine lines, and also improves the elasticity, density, and firmness of your skin.
2. DIPTYQUE: Philosykos
Ahh, this fragrance is just something else. Philosykos is probably one of the most popular scents from Diptyque, which I honestly understand. With a woody aromatic scent, the top notes are fig leaf and fig, middle notes are coconut and green notes, and the base notes are cedar, woody notes, and fig tree. This fragrance is the perfect one for autumn if you haven’t found one yet!
3. ORIBE: Côte d’Azur Body Cream
This cream is probably my favorite skincare product at the moment, and here is why: the smell! My oh my, the smell is just something else. Not only does the cream smell amazing, but it is incredibly nurturing with oils that gives the body the moisture it needs. This is honestly the perfect summer product for your skin.
4. TOM FORD: Ultra Shine Lip Color; Nubile
This lipstick from Tom Ford is everything you need this summer. In the summertime, I seldom wear strong lip color and prefer a lip shine, which is precisely what this lipstick from Tom Ford does. The Ultra Shine Lip Color from Tom Ford is innovative, due to the fact that it not only works as a lipstick, but also a lipgloss, and a lip balm, so here you have a three-in-one. My favorite color from this collection is Nubile. It’s the perfect shade if you´re looking for a nude shade with a hint of pink.

There are many restaurants in Cannes, and it’s actually quite hard separating the great ones from the OK ones just by looking at them. In Cannes, I ate several disappointing meals, but there are some places that I would love coming back to, and actually one restaurant I came back to several times.
Bobo Bistro is located in the city center of Cannes, and you just notice how popular it is when you arrive. I would recommend to try to pre-book or go as soon as the restaurant opens in the evening (around 19:00, if I’m not mistaken). They specialize in pizza but have a lot of other great dishes on the menu, and almost everything contains truffles. This is really a place that I would come back to every time I’m in Cannes.
BREAKFAST AT HOTEL MARTINEZ
I actually found it quite hard to find a decent breakfast spot in Cannes, besides the hotels. The breakfast at Hotel Martinez is quite expensive but worth it, as it is a breakfast buffet where you can get anything you desire.
RESTAURANTS IN LE SUQUET
Le Suquet is the Old Town in Cannes, and here you will find several restaurants where you can eat authentic French food. The prices are also great, which is not a bad thing! In Le Suquet I would really recommend stopping by Gavroche. This restaurant is very popular and always packed. Be sure to be there early if you want a table.
My days in Cannes are unfortunately coming to an end. It was great coming back to the South of France for a mini holiday. It made me realize how much I actually needed a vacation. There’s something charming about the French Riviera and Provence that I’ll never get tired of. I didn’t get to travel around Provence as much as I hoped for either, so I definitely have to come back very soon. The positive thing about not getting to travel around Provence is that I got to explore every bit of Cannes. I do feel that I know every corner of that town, which is great.
