Bienvenue (welcome) to Leonce Chenal, a modern lifestyle platform for lovers of everything French. I created this platform in 2018 to fulfill my passion for fashion and beauty. It quickly became my source of joy, a creative escape, allowing me to indulge in my interests while I was navigating a more conventional career in London. Here, you can expect French style tips, inspiring street style looks from Paris Fashion Week, well-crafted capsule wardrobes, beauty product reviews, and many more surprises (do not miss Les Collections Particulières) so you can always look your best and stay inspired. Join our community by subscribing to the newsletter for inbox surprises or through your favorite social media platform. I hope this magical space brings you as much joy as I find in creating it.

The Editor

Bonjour! I’m Leonce, the editor of Leonce Chenal, a website dedicated to French style, beauty, and much more. I’m French and originally from a small town near Annecy. I started Leonce Chenal in 2018 to indulge my love for fashion and beauty while I was working as a data analyst in London. After living in Paris for a few years, I now reside in Amsterdam and plan to relocate soon to Bordeaux, France. Outside of this magical space, in my spare time, I enjoy baking pâtisseries, reading about marketing and the arts, traveling to Marrakech or Ibiza, and spending time with my loved ones. I’m also passionate about perfumes, always on the hunt for the next fabulous scent to add to my ever-growing collection. I hope this space inspires you and infuses your life with a touch of joie de vivre.
Merci for visiting! À bientôt, xo.

PS: My name is Mathilde, but you can call me Léonce, which is my middle name. I named this platform “Léonce Chenal” after my grandmother.

Editorial Guidelines

My commitment to you, my readers, is based on four key principles: authenticity, integrity, quality, and transparency.

  1. I promise to maintain authenticity in everything I share. I conduct thorough research and product testing to ensure each blog post is honest and provides genuine insights, giving you reliable and accurate information.

  2. Editorial integrity is essential to me. Even though I sometimes use affiliate links, this does not influence my editorial choices. I only feature products that I genuinely adore and believe you will love, too. All sponsored content is clearly indicated to maintain transparency.

  3. I strive to ensure that all content is relevant, timely, and tailored to your interests. Blog posts are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect the latest information.

  4. Occasionally, I receive products or gifts from brands. Receiving these products in no way affects how I write about them, but it allows me to have an overview of what’s on the market that I wouldn’t otherwise have. These gifts do not guarantee a feature or positive review. My content is driven by what I genuinely find interesting and valuable, and any featured product received as a gift is clearly disclosed, ensuring full transparency.

If you have any further questions on the way that I disclose, please feel free to email me at bonjour[at]leoncechenal.com, and I’ll be happy to answer and take on board your suggestions.
