A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of the spectacular new Beauty Hall found in the recently renovated Holt Renfrew Ogilvy store in my hometown of Montréal, where I also there to discover a first of its kind in Canada: Guerlain’s Parfumeur Boutique — and I even had the opportunity to create my very own personalized Bee bottle.
