A Clean, Well-Lighted Space
Shiny cherry lacquer, gleaming white tile and chrome, and plenty of sunlight may seem like counterintuitive décor in a relaxing spa, but the new Clarins Treatment Boutique on Madison Avenue is bright, beautifully laid out, and a perfect showcase for the company’s products. The body oils and creams that launched the line are still there for the faithful, but now there’s a full array of skin care and cosmetics. After you stock up, head upstairs to the relaxation area for a 30-minute Express facial ($60), neck-and-shoulder rub ($70), or leg massage ($70) (1061 Madison Avenue, at 80th Street; 212-734-6100).

Beauty Marks
BUST BOOSTERS Give yourself and your New Year’s Eve dress a toned, radiant décolleté. At Yasmine Djerradine, they begin with a power peel, then apply serums and a mask to plump and revitalize ($95; 212-588-1771). Aida Bicaj in Dr. Aron Kressel’s office uses a milk cleanser and an exfoliating lotion, hydrates with an amino-acid-rich liquid, scrubs and massages, and finishes with an oxygenating mask and hydrating serum ($100; 212-989-6077). At Shizuka New York, the chest is steamed, cleansed with glycolic acid and scrubbed, and treated to a multivitamin peel and gel mask ($60; 212-644-7400).

MULLING SPICE Annick Goutal’s Eau d’Hadrien has such broad appeal that it’s become popular with women and men. Now, for the holiday season, Les Nuits d’Hadrien has been introduced. The new fragrance carries notes of citrus, patchouli, amber, white musk, bergamot, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, and vanilla bean ($90 for 1.7 ounces at Saks Fifth Avenue). Vanilla, bergamot, and citrus are also bottled in the Eau de Toilette Vanille by Calypso Christiane Celle ($45 at Calypso and Henri Bendel).
