From beauty to dining, these fresh concepts are the talk of the town.

BEAUTY Fashion Island is sitting pretty these days with the debut of O.C.’s first Chanel Fragrance and Beauté Boutique where beauty enthusiasts can shop the new Rouge Allure Camélia collection of lip products. What’s more is the opportunity to refill five of Chanel’s bestselling fragrances on-site.

STAY Forget what you know about airport hotels. The revamped Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport has all the makings of its boutique-chic counterparts, including new interiors by Indidesign and a sustainable-focused signature restaurant dubbed WAVE. Book the Reimagined and Revealed package (from $759) to enjoy overnight deluxe accommodations, dinner for two with a bottle of fine wine and a sunset boat cruise in the Newport Bay.

SHOP South Coast Plaza has also scored an exclusive of its own: the first stateside Swarovski Crystal Studio, where interactive displays allow shoppers to virtually try on and explore the jewelry designs of their dreams.

DINE Journeyman’s Food + Drink in Fullerton has officially spread its wings with a new name, The Bronze Quail Restaurant & Bar, and a new executive chef (Mark Piepkorn). Book the six-course chef’s tasting to let your taste buds take flight.
