PERFECTLY LEGAL HIGH: ÉTIENNE LEROY SHISHA
Swiss high-end lifestyle brand Étienne LeRoy has unveiled a new range of ultra-premium sheesha pipes. Sleek and polished, the pipes come in a limited production of just 99 pieces.
Sculptural and slim in profile, the Swiss-made, black lacquered instrument comes embellished with a floral, Middle-Eastern motif, and a pipe sheathed in fine black leather: try smoking this with a glass of your cognac of choice – who knows, the exotic pairing might just work.
The Étienne LeRoy shisha range was presented during the Dubai Big Boys Toys Show last week.
For all those connoisseurs looking for the special lot of cognac in the market, Martell has once again introduced something truly special. After completing 100 years of world class Cognac making, Martell has launched the Cordon Bleu Centenary limited edition, in 2 different options of packing.

Cuvée Cognac Frapin 1888 is a prestige product. The crystal carafe has 700 ml of finest cognac to offer. This Cuvée from the house of Frapin is part of a limited edition (1888 bottles), and a major reference to Pierre Frapin. In 1889, Pierre won the Gold Medal of the Exposition Universelle de Paris 1889, today the medal is kept in the cellars of the estate in Segonzac. This bottle unites very old Grande Champagne (très vieille) eaux-de-vie from the barrels of the Domaine Château de Fontpinot. The Cuvée consists of Folle Blanche notes which seem to be quite rare to find. The decanter is unique: Frapin created a bottle, crafted by the Christalleries Royales de Champagne, including a 24 carat gold element for $6,500.
