Caudalie Once Upon A Vine Gift Set

On the type of chilly autumn morning that makes you feel like a real New Yorker, hugging the curves of Central Park a serene escape can be found at Caudalie Spa at the Plaza Hotel. This particular morning Caudalie Spa provided refuge not only from the cold but from the harsh real world into a fairy tale land where everyone is treated kindly and most importantly, properly moisturized. To celebrate the Caudalie Once Upon A Vine gift set the gracious hosts at Caudalie Spa, including Caudalie founder Mathilde Thomas, took visitors on the journey of each product featured in the Once Upon A Vine gift set. 


From blind scent tests to learn which fragrances are included in the Vine Body Butter to making a fresh ingredient version of the Crushed Cabernet Scrub, the Once Upon A Vine collection came to life for us so we could bring the tale to you. The morning concluded with the decadent French canelé and mimosas for breakfast- a fairy tale ending indeed. Side note: If you've never tried a canelé before (I had my first at Caudalie Spa) you are missing OUT!

Scented with sweet Italian orange, peach, and Iris, the body butter is not only paraben free but contains patented Vinolevure, which captures up to 100 times its weight in water resulting in exceptional moisturizing.
