Darphin Vendôme Insitute - the best kept secret in Paris. Just a few steps from the Place Vendôme a world of luxury awaits on the rue Saint-Honoré. Here, at number 350, in the courtyard of a mansion nestled between the one-time residence of the Marquise de Pompadour and the home of Sophie de Condorcet (in whose salon the Age of Enlightenment blossomed), the Darphin Institute has found its new home in the former stables of the mansion.
An elegant juxtaposition between traditional and modern, the new Darphin Institute renovation was executed by renowned French craftsmen in keeping with the Darphin philosophy, to offer discerning women the pleasure of high-performance made-to-measure beauty treatments with an unforgettable multi-sensory experience.
As you enter the Institute you are instantly surrounded in tranquil cocoon. Inhale the delicate scents of essential oils. The cosy treatment rooms capture the elegance of a Parisian apartment and create a deep sense of well-being.
Pierre Darphin firmly believed that beauty treatments require a specific massage technique to enhance their delivery into skin. He developed a highly innovative protocol, which remains at the very heart of all our beauty treatments.
It's often said that Darphin beauty therapists have magic fingers. Each therapist is extensively trained in modelling and application techniques, which require unwavering control of each hand position, each type of pressure, each rhythm.
The pressure point massage, the first step in any Darphin beauty treatment, restores energy and balance to the body and increases penetration of the serum ingredients. The Iconic Deep Massage offers a natural "face lift". Phyto-drainage detoxifies the lymph aromatic essential oil elixirs.
This abundant sense of luxury and pleasure combined with visible results, are the reasons so many generations return time and time again to the Darphin Institute.
