It’s authentic, British and sophisticated. Just as simple as a Cologne reaching the Perfume standard. The stories of the fragrances are all fascinating. Thus, Iris Prima is transporting us into the English National Ballet, a world of theatre and dance with a citrus freshness mimicking the graceful flight of the prima ballerina as she leaps into the spotlight. But my favorite is Endymion, inspired by tales from Greek mythology. Endymion was the most handsome son of Zeus and was placed into perpetual slumber by the Goddess of the Moon so that she alone could gaze upon him. Endymion is supposed to be a man’s fragrance but at Penhaligon’s all fragrances can be used both by women and men.
The Hong Kong IFC boutique is a must see: all the furnishing are antiques imported directly from Britain. Even the floor, the fire place and the walls have been built using timeworn materials imported from England. A truly unexpected treasure trove full of beauty.
Definitely worth a visit!

For the HK Sothebys International Realty ‘Event Series 3/5 – Draw me I’m Colorful’ we decided to put colors in life for an original event entertainment! Bringing together with us fashion designers, creativity and technology, we created a total bespoke experience. Guests were able to fully participate in the fashion and artistic experiences which included live illustrations and photos printed on iPhone cases. The added touch was of course all the magnificent paintings from Chagall, Antonio Segui, Picasso, Bernard Buffet… as we organized the event at the very well-known Opera Gallery. Watch the video here of the corporate VIP event:
Thanks to Andy Ho, guest of honor, who kindly joined even though he was busy preparing Paris fashion week!

Cha Ling and Paris Art Ltd work together to provide a unique bespoke artistic experience to the guests. Cha Ling is a somptuous cosmetic brand (LVMH group) with a wonderful story created around natural elements such as the famous Chinese Pu’er tea.
Imagine an unknown land, on the very edge of the very edge of Yunnan province, the green lung of China and one of the world’s largest sources of tea.
Imagine a forest thousands of years old, a perfect ecosystem housing the original, treasured Pu’er tea.
Imagine the dream of a German biologist, supported by his Chinese wife, to protect this unique ecological heritage.
Welcome to the artistic world of Cha Ling by Paris Art Ltd
We collaborate with Cha Ling through various events at their different stores in Hong Kong. The main idea is to customize and personalize a perfume bottle so guests can keep their own signature fragrance.
Customization is made by our artists at the stores or on order according to the guest requirements. We have come with different ideas of designs and sometimes the clients themselves have wonderful ideas which nourish our inspiration. They can see us working live when we are at the store: all the time it’s a new story that begins with discussions and thought sharing. All of them enjoy the artistic experience and add their personal touch!
With our multicultural team it’s the bridge between Hong Kong and the rest of the world that we want to build, this in order to elevate the artistic mind to a universal understanding. There is always a special connection between the artistic team and the guests. You can see below other designs signed by Paris Art Ltd.
Our sincere thank you to Cha Ling team in Hong Kong and Paris, to LVMH research centre and of course to our delightful artists: Lucie, Klio and Carrie. Paris Art Ltd would never exist without their talent.
The colorful, fast-paced and advancing energy of Hong Kong’s past and present has been a great source of inspiration to Nicole, one of our talented artists, for this bright wall painting! “What I enjoyed particularly was to provide my own understanding of a city that I truly love. Not only did I enjoy painting my take on the town that I like to call my home, but I also enjoyed the challenges that the mural brought; Tackling a massive size and figuring out which mediums would articulate best – it helped strengthen my artistic understanding and abilities. An overall humbling learning experience.” The painting is located in the office of Meltwater Hong Kong, an agency that focuses on business strategies. Encompassing a space of 19 × 8 feet, the concept of this mural illustration is linked to vibrant Hong Kong.
Wall painting has become a great value these past years for companies, institutions and individuals. It shows particular values while sharing emotions with others. According to each projet, everyone can recognize a certain something they relate to. Besides, it creates the surprise and the will to get to know better a project, a location or the social lifestyle of a city. In the wall painting below, we can easily recognize the colorful and energetic city of Hong Kong. We can also see one of the city great features which is the mix between Eastern and Western people. Finally it is looking at the past and the present at the same time. On on hand there is a dragon boat sign on the left which illustrates the traditional city and on the other hand, there is a skyscraper in the background that reminds us the modernity of Hong Kong.
Paris Art Ltd team created this VIP invitation design for Estée Lauder CRM programme entitled to embark its VIP clients on a wonderful birthday and a bespoke VIP experience.
A VIP experience should always start with a nice invitation…
Designing a card, an invitation, or even a flyer is something not to be missed. All details matter: wording, colors, dimensions, background… It’s far from easy to come with the best solution so we started with different ideas, different background colors so we could end up with several first proposals. For this work we asked our French design team to help find the right lines and ideas. The request from Estée Lauder was to be simple and powerful at the same time.
Then, the choice started to narrow, until we came to the final version designed with the similar pink background and 3 different colors for the gift ribbon: blue, chestnut and red. The hand of the lady who discovers the surprise remains fine and delicate. We all want to know what’s inside the present! Wait for it…
Our idea of a VIP experience is definitely linked to the most exclusive way to go beyond the scenes and discover a world of surprise, a world full of unexpected sensations. The VIP invitation is only a first step towards the journey of an experience. This journey will last until the gift appears! Indeed: ‘For your birthday month, we invite you for a birthday experience at the counter’. An unusual gift for a non ordinary VIP! We are sorry that we are not allowed to say what is inside but one thing is for sure: ‘Shine bright! Let us celebrate together!’ No regret to have waited. This moment will be THE moment. Well, this is how we see it and we only have one thing to tell you: Happy birthday.
