Evidens de Beauté at Sense Spa, Rosewood London

What’s the nicest thing your partner has ever done for you? We’re going to stick our neck on the line and say it probably didn’t involve the lengths that Charles-Edouard Barthes went to for his wife, Eriko Nakamura. Barthes is as French as you can get: born in St-Paul-de-Vence, he is impeccably attired, with a self-professed knack for “stylishness and seduction”. Falling “madly in love” with Nakamura, he created a whole skincare line to suit her sensitive skin, uniting the best scientific expertise from Japan with a distinctively French sensibility. Luckily for us, he decided to expand availability of the line outside his immediate family, with a range of products and four new treatments available at Rosewood London’s Sense Spa. As an exclusive UK home, the Sense Spa is a good choice, being nothing short of heavenly with its bamboo walls, wooden walkways over water and centrifugal design. Our recommendation? The Essential Fresh and Tone Ritual.
