She lived, loved and designed here. This legendary palace was the exemplary setting for her free, bold spirit and high standards. It nurtured her femininity and fostered her idea of luxury: one forged of refinement, understatement, perfection and customization. In 2016, the spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel is back in its entire splendor. For the first time ever, CHANEL invites women on a timeless journey: an eternal moment of exclusive facial and body treatments featuring unprecedented rituals.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIGHT
From its beginnings, in 1924, just three years after the birth of N°5 and the creation of the CHANEL Perfume Society, the brand became a name in beauty as much as in fashion. Mademoiselle Chanel began developing her global vision of femininity, where fragrances, skincare products and makeup come together to create a style unique to each woman. It was the beginning of an avant-garde skincare philosophy. Beyond superficial appearances, Mademoiselle understood that beautiful skin is, above all, healthy skin; the most precious fabric of all which reveals the innermost emotions; the mirror of the soul. She often said that no woman could truly glow without inner fulfillment and well-being. Far ahead of her time, she evoked healthy living, personal balance and self-confidence as the key to true radiance. I love myself, therefore I am beautiful. A very modern declaration of bodily egology that is certainly not superficial.
Mademoiselle Chanel always detested orders, dictates and ready-made formulas; she continually reinvented herself.
Through the years, CHANEL skincare products have always strived to offer women the keys to their own fulfillment. The keys to free, total beauty. Today, this holistic approach finds its most accomplished expression at the Ritz. Each CHANEL beauty treatment is a customized creation combining the exceptional formulas of skincare products with expert rituals; combining visible results with an original relational approach and careful attention to the soul and body. An assurance of immediate radiance and an enduring improvement of well-being. A unique multi-sensory adventure of proven effectiveness but with no compulsory figures.
AN EXCEPTIONAL MASSAGE
Flawless and timeless
At CHANEL, the Art of Skincare is, above all, the art of the touch. At the expert hands of the beautician, the skin communicates, expresses itself, confides its secrets. The massaging fingers perceive: they enter into a conversation with the cells, sense the tissues at their deepest levels, understand, console, repair, stimulate.
Massage is the backbone of the CHANEL beauty ritual, playing a fundamental role in the treatment through a reinterpretation of the best of Western and Eastern techniques. To each her own personalized cocktail of expert proce- dures. But for even more individualized care, CHANEL has gone beyond to create a signature massage inspired by several care methods, and in particular fasciatherapy.
