  1. This is really worrying but what gets me most excited about Le Cheval Blanc is the signature fragrances. Straightaway I’m intrigued that it’s a masculine horse. Are macho notes going to dominate the fragrances? Is it going to be a bit too patchouli oil and heavy on the sandalwood?

    I’ve stayed at some hotels, where clearly a man has been in charging of sourcing toiletries and it’s all far too 1970s with Henry Cooper and Kevin Keegan rubbing the Brut all over. You’re almost expecting the night manager to surf in on a tidal wave of Old Spice.

    And it’s not just me. I can remember soft-rock legend Mick Fleetwood, of Fleetwood Mac, saying that one of the reasons he still loves touring is because he gets excited about the little bottles of shampoo in the hotels.

  2. how do architects get their inspiration. atlantis royal is amazing I don’t know how they think it up

  3. Never got into massages. More appealing to me is the 2 day hiking pass at the Engelberg. Might be looking to add a few more days of hiking onto that.

  4. That picture of the Aman certainly looks like an escape from New York’s mayhem. But whenever I head up town towards Central Park it does feel as if things are calming down a bit.

  5. People in the UAE love a garden. If you’ve been to Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque so much of it is about the paradise of the gardens in the desert. Apart from at an oasis, the Bedouin hardly ever saw plants and trees.

    As someone who visited Dubai in the 1990s it’s incredible to see what an urban jungle it’s become. There should have been more greenery built in.

  6. You need somewhere like the Fairmont in LA. It’s a city that I have mixed feelings about, a love-hate relationship.

    LA is great but it does drain you, really saps your energy. A great hotel to recharge is non-negotiable.
