Le 68 Guy Martin- Boutique Guerlain Champs-Elysees, Paris

The beautiful facade of Guerlain boutique in 68 Champs-Elysees never cease to impress me. 
It is undoubtedly one of the most elegant perfume boutiques in the world. Inside is also where the very chic and cosy restaurant Le 68 by Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin is located. 
Here you have one of the oldest and most famous perfume houses in the world and one of the best French chefs in the world come together. When two such great talents combine you'll have one of the world's most beautiful restaurants. This is something incredible

We walked past the parfumerie that showcases gorgeously shaped bottles of different colourfed perfumes. 
Then a mixture of sweet floral blossoms drifted its way past my nose before I was swept inside to a cosy corner table. The interior is relaxed yet impressive and elegant with its striking Baccarat chandeliers, light coloured walls and decor. The plastic-topped tables are covered with flowers like ylang-ylang, peonies, jonquil and lilies used in 
Guerlain's famous perfumes. How charming! 
Le 68 is a hidden gem in the heart of Paris. The dishes were visually appealing as they were delicious. The service was friendly and polite. Truly a delightful experience it was. Couldn't have been better!
