Elemis Couples with Bliss Spa

As is my tradition when I am in a city lucky enough to house a bliss spa within its blocks, I make it my duty to stop in and fill up my cup. Having had a particularly jarring Sunday evening, I nodded at the serendipity of my well-timed appointment with world's first bliss. Located on Broadway between Prince and Houston, I realized suddenly that the Dean and DeLuca (both of whom I've decided to marry) I've been frequenting is only a few doors down. Despite having been to this, the original bliss before, I had not, until today, realized these two Manhattan merchants of all things heavenly are actually, neighbors. Love thy neighbor, indeed.

My trip today was in honor of another celestial pairing of powerhouse brands. Two new Elemis treatments (a facial and a body scrub) are now on the bliss menu. Can you think of anything more delightful? No no, neither can I. International powerhouse Elemis has decided to have a fling with the Spa industry's most playful outpost. Bliss meet Elemis. Elemis meet bliss. You'll get along just fine.

My first Vichy shower was at Bliss San Francisco and I will never, ever forget it. It was the first time I had been fully bathed, scrubbed and oiled up like a limp toddler in adulthood and it was absolutely one of the most pleasurable days of my existence. This was a similar journey, only with Elemis Japanese Camilla Oil heated and rubbed over the majority of my flesh. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

First my veteran bliss technician buffed my entire body with a dry brush. Then came the Camilla oil, then the Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow scrub. Then the AMAZING Vichy shower. This is the part where they move multiple shower heads that hang from the ceiling over your entire body at once and bath all of the yummy oil and salt off of you. At the end of this process I was briefly left to wade the full length of my body in the shallow pond of these delicious Elemis scents. If, you have never waded your entire body in Elemis scented waters it is really something you must try before you die. Though I can't imagine heaven smells much different. It was a kind of peace that a price simply can't define.

Finally once you are nearly delirious and dry they polish you from head to toe in the most delicious Elemis Exotic Island Flower Balm, a delectably scented lotion with fragrances of Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Osmanthus and Vanilla. Enjoy!
