Travel in Style: Jonathan Zrihen


By Allison Hata

Jonathan Zhiren Clarins CEOAs president and CEO of Clarins, North America, Jonathan Zrihen has journeyed to the far reaches of the world. An avid traveler, Zrihen was born in Toulouse in the south of France and has since worked and lived in an expansive number countries, including Ireland, Canada, Sydney and South Africa, among others. When he’s with his wife and three children, however, he loves to spend his time outdoors playing tennis or windsurfing while cool ocean breezes carry the scent of saltwater through the air. If he’s not exploring the Whitsunday Islands off the Australian coast, he’s enjoying a seaside escape with his family in Bali or along California’s western coastline. “I love the nature, beach and that you are in the middle of such a beautiful remote place,” he says of Bali. “I [also] love discovering beaches between San Diego and Los Angeles.”



“My summer essential is a tennis racquet on holidays … I like to play once a day.”


“I have a watch collection and am currently enjoying the Rolex Explorer—I like that it goes with any suit and is durable.”
