    I finished my tour of Europe in Paris. I won't digress, but I will say that Paris is by far the most beautiful city I've ever visited. I've visited it more than any other international city -- I think this marked my 13 visit -- and it just never gets old. I have also stayed at the Park Hyatt Vendome on three separate occasions. This is a magnificent property. Unlike the Park Hyatt Vienna, it has consistently good, but not great service. By Parisian standards, the service is top notch, and there's no doubting that it's the best luxury option in Paris that one can reasonably obtain on points. The thing I love most about the Park Hyatt Vendome, however, is the hotel's signature scent. I'm a sucker for fragrances. Anyone who has been to my apartment in Los Angeles knows that I have a large tray of fragrances in my bathroom featuring in excess of a dozen fragrances, and these are just my favorites. I also have quite a collection of candles. Maybe it's just me, but I love it when airlines and hotels have a signature fragrance. Perhaps this is because substantial research suggests that smells have an ability to recall memories better than other senses. (The linked CNN article is the most accessible, not the most scientifically persuasive article on the subject.) With respect to airlines, Emirates does an amazing job pumping Bulgari's more feminine scent into the lavatories and cabin of first class.
