BEAUTY-SHOP TALK: Skin-care brand Caudalie has just opened its first freestanding boutique in Paris. The 500-square-foot space is nestled on the Marais’ Rue des Francs Bourgeois, a bustling street already home to beauty labels like Guerlain, Kiehl’s and Bobbi Brown.

The Caudalie shop has light-colored wooden merchandising units stocking the brand’s entire range, a marble countertop and plasma screen featuring views of the Château Smith Haut Lafitte in the French wine country of Bordeaux, its birthplace. Caudalie is expected to add a treatment cabin to the location by yearend, as well.

Elsewhere in the Marais neighborhood is the new Huygens shop, selling custom-made organic beauty items. With 17 essential oils from which to choose, customers can have products — including body lotions, massage oils and hair products — concocted especially for them on the spot.
