BEST CUSTOM FRAGRANCE
“Our custom program is the real DNA of Krigler, and our house has always created personalized fragrances,” explains Ben Krigler, the fifth-generation owner of the company, which is lucky to call Audrey Hepburn and Adriana Lima as both past and present fans of the luxe perfume, soap and candle brand. “More than ever, people are looking [to create] a bespoke perfume—it’s an extension of yourself; you are part of its conception; and the experience is very personal,” he explains. That personal experience cumulates after a nine-month program where the Krigler team gets to know both you and your preferences via a 100-question Q&A—deemed the Proust Questionnaire—as well as in-person conversations, to create the scent of your dreams. “Yesterday, the clients for our custom fragrances were royalties and old fortunes; today, they are as varied as having exceptional wealth to being famous attorneys in Los Angeles to even a princess from Dubai. Krigler is the parfumeur-voyageur, and the world is a wonderful playground!” From $50,000, boutique inside the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
BEST WORTH-THE-PRICE FACIAL
When the Peninsula Spa Beverly Hills acquired the six-in-one In-Skin facial machine last year, it developed a high-performance facial in line with its groundbreaking technology. Dubbed the Ultimate Indulgence Facial, the 120-minute-long treatment incorporates microdermabrasian, oxygen, radio-frequency, a chromo-frequency face mask, air massage, and electroporation with potent Biologique Recherche products for immediate, unprecedented results. Glowy, tight and refreshed skin in only two hours? Sign us up! $1,500, 310.975.2854
BEST SPA DAY
It’s no secret that the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills was the hottest hotel to open last year, and with it came the La Prairie Spa, which is as impressive as the property itself. While simply going for the 90-minute Rejuvenating Platinum Facial ($550)—an anti-aging treatment that transforms and tightens your skin—is an unmatched offering, make a day of it to truly enjoy all that the hotel has to offer. Following the facial, head upstairs and grab a leisurely lunch at The Rooftop by JG—don’t miss the eggplant fritters and tuna tartare—and then make your way back downstairs to the spa to enjoy a steam and a glass of Champagne in the relaxation room. To top off the experience, book the Ultimate Indulgence Body Treatment ($595), a two-hour service that includes a body exfoliation, wrap and the calming Caviar massage. Getting a little R & R in style never felt so good.
