Less Is More, the organic brand your hair has been waiting for

banniere

Today your concierge gives away one of his favourite top-of-the-range haircare line for you: the brand Less Is More. It is still little known in France, but its potential is only exceeded by the quality of its hair treatments.

Some privileged UUU members discovered this unique brand on the occasion of our latest UUU private soirée at the Opera Gallery in Paris. We had slipped Less Is More products in our guests’ gift bags.

Less Is More’s collection of organic and professional haircare from Austria is born from the union of Hannes Trummer, skilled hair stylist who recently opened his avant-garde hairdressing salon in Vienna, Austria, and Doris Brandhuber, chemist specialist in biomimetics.

After they observed the consequences of classic haircare products on the environment and on the users´ health, the duo took a decision: create their own recipes in order to develop a range of healthy and organic cosmetics.

Less Is More is a perfect mix’n’match between convenience and simplicity, aestheticism and ethical will. It is one of those brands you want to keep an eye on, it has a promising future in the bathrooms of those who want their cosmetics to be eco-friendly, without cutting down on efficacity.

You are wondering how to get your hands on Less Is More products? Call your concierge and he will give you the secret!

Less Is More, une marque à suivre !

banniere

Aujourd’hui votre concierge préféré vous livre un de ses coups de cœurs en matière de soins capillaires haut de gamme : la marque Less Is More. Encore méconnue en France, son potentiel n’a pourtant d’égal que la qualité de ses traitements capillaires.

C’est lors de la dernière soirée privée à l’Opera Gallery à Paris que quelques privilégiés parmi les membres UUU ont pu découvrir la marque Less Is More, dont nous avions glissé des produits dans les gift bags.

Collection de soins bio et professionnels venue d´Autriche, Less Is More est née de l´alliance de Hannes Trummer, hair stylist émérite ayant récemment ouvert son salon de coiffure avant-gardiste à Vienne, en Autriche, et de Doris Brandhuber, chimiste spécialiste en biomimétique.

Après avoir examiné les conséquences que les produits de coiffure classiques ont sur l’environnement et sur la santé des utilisateurs, le duo a pris une décision : créer ses propres recettes afin de développer une gamme de cosmétiques sains et respectueux.

Less Is More, un mix´n´match parfait alliant fonctionnalité et simplicité, esthétisme et volonté éthique, est une marque à surveiller de près, on lui prédit un bel avenir dans les salles de bains de ceux qui veulent du bio dans leurs cosmétiques, sans rogner sur l’efficacité.

Comment vous procurer les produits Less Is More ? Un coup de fil à votre concierge et on vous donne notre secret !

Your UUU concierge tested for U… la Maison Girard!

Chocolate maker since 1920 from father to son (and to daughter) for four generations, Girard Chocolatier treats people with its chocolate-flavoured, fruity sweets and its delicious sugar-coated almonds. Your UUU concierge went on site and takes you now for a gourmet stroll in the heart of Paris.

A handmade and family house

Located near the commercial hub that is the BHV, la Maison Girard is present in the French capital for four generations. Denis’ great grand-father (current manager), who was at the origin of this family business. He was a sales representative traveler then manager with his wife in a delicatessen shop. It was after the war that the first boutique located in the 8th arrondissement moved to rue Vieille du Temple, before moving closer to the “vacuum” of the neighbourhood, the Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville by opening in rue des Archives in 1954.

An unparalleled strategy

Since its opening, the shop never ceased to attract the onlookers as its window display overflows with rich and colourful sweets and chocolates – chocolate, sugar-coated almond, French fruit jelly (pur fruit), diamond-shaped sweets from Provence, candied chestnuts…

And to guarantee an excellent quality to its chocolates, la Maison Girard did not hesitate to become its own manufacturer and producer! So since 1968, la Maison Girard has its own manufactory workshop located rue de la Tâcherie. Under the direction of a chocolate maker chef, the workshop creates the Girard range which has replaced all other brands they sold before. The Girard range offers more than fifty different choices of chocolate and almost as much sugar-coated almonds.

A savoir-faire of yesteryear

Made of pure cocoa butter selected among the best from Belgium, Girard chocolates are neither too sugary, nor too chocolate-flavoured, but refined and gourmet. “We must find the perfect balance between the chocolate force and the cocoa content […] to be able to detect what is the composition of a chocolate. Otherwise it has no interest,” tells Mr. Girard. The savoir-faire of the house is the perfect control of the balance between flavours. “We make our pralines ourselves with 60% of hazelnuts or almonds and our ganache. “We try to establish a range of chocolates – about fifty – that we can easily distinguish from each others: hazelnut pralines, almonds, coffee flavour, gianduja (chocolate and hazelnut pastry), ganache, that is melting, lively, not sickly nor sugary.”

As for sugar-coated almonds, second speciality of the house, they are made from Avola almonds, coming from a small village in Sicily, well-known for producing the best almonds in the world, and manufactured in a factory in Verdun, cradle of sugar-coated almond manufacture!

Mouth watering, you say? Do not wait any longer and hurry up rue des Archives to get a glimpse and a taste! And for the most chocoholic ones, your concierge books for you a private visit of the chocolate laboratory rue Tacherie, which opens its doors during the winter period. Contact your concierge and enjoy!

Urgence Visa…

Un membre du cercle UUU m’appelle de l’aéroport. Elle doit se rendre en Chine pour la remise de prix récompensant sa société. A l’enregistrement, le personnel de bord lui signale que son visa est expiré et qu’elle ne peut donc pas voyager. Il faut que je lui trouve une solution dans les heures qui suivent pour lui permettre d’être présente à cette distinction. La solution ? Lui faire faire un visa. Obstacle supplémentaire, jeudi… hebdomadaire de l’ambassade. Je lui suggère alors de patienter à l’aéroport au calme et je m’assure que son attente se fasse dans un salon VIP. Je décide d’envoyer un coursier récupérer son passeport et pendant ce temps je sollicite le réseau UUU et obtiens le numéro du consul lui-même. Il décide alors de répondre favorablement à titre exceptionnel à ma demande et de rejoindre le coursier qui l’attendait sur place.  Le coursier est reparti vers l’aéroport avec le passeport et le visa qui confirmait bien son droit de séjour en Chine. La cliente a pu décoller 2 heures après son vol initial et a assisté à sa remise de prix. Notre cliente nous a confié plus tard n’avoir jamais cru notre démarche possible. Elle nous remercie encore de notre réactivité et est devenue, depuis, l’une de nos plus grandes ambassadrices.
