On the afternoon we stopped by CryoEmpire to talk with cofounder Dasha Braverman, a cluster of silver mylar balloon letters were floating in the spacious lounge where clients relax after being treated. Turns out, the letters spelled out FROZEN and were left over from the party that CryoEmpire had just hosted for cast members of the Disney musical on Broadway, which officially opened this month.
Located just blocks away from Bryant Park, CryoEmpire is a state-of-the-art rejuvenation center that combines anti-aging services with the latest technology to tailor services that focus on beauty, performance, and recovery. As Dasha showed us around and explained the various equipment and procedures, we could really sense that a lot of thought was put into creating a welcoming and tranquil space. The interior is painted in airy shades of blue and white illuminated by crystal chandeliers with elegant decor. “Everyone who comes here says they never want to leave. That means a lot, because we really wanted to create a unique and beautiful environment that provides an escape from the city.” We couldn’t help but think how fantastic it would be to have a bridal shower here!

The summer foliage is lush and in bloom, creating a gorgeous backdrop for a stunning New York bride. As this season is utterly romantic, summer weddings are full of their own perfume indeed, yet also has inspired the perfumista in us all!
The olfactive sense, which is our ability to recognize scents, is the first sense we develop and acts as a gateway to memories. We often remember the surrounding scents in the air when recalling far-off memories from long ago. The scent of freshly cut grass, warm cookies from the oven, or cobblestones glistening and wet from a spring rain. Read More
