Whenever I’m in New York, London or Paris, I never miss the chance to pop into the nearest Laduree. The gorgeous little jewel box shops are just so wondrously pretty.
Just standing in the queue makes me feel a little like Marie Antoinette, and their macarons, are of course, to die for.
If you’re cutting down on sweet treats this New Year, Laduree still has the most stunning collection of beauty products which are just as tasty as their famous offerings.
If you’ve ever enjoyed the sublime macarons, you’ll know how divine Laduree’s packaging is. I’m not going to lie, I take as much pleasure in selecting my colours, my box and ribbon as I do in enjoying my treats. Thankfully, the candle is just as pretty. The outer packing is a rococo whirl of green foliage along with golden detailing, and inside is just a dream. The very generously proportioned candle comes in an earthen pot. I love the lemon-sorbet colour as well as the moulded medallion. It is just so chic and Parisian looking!
As if all the stunning packaging wasn’t enough – just look at the candle! Mine is Praline scented, and it is just the most wonderful strawberry-pink colour. The scent is swoon-worthy too! It’s perfect for the icky weather we’ve had over Christmas and New Year, with warm notes of vanilla and brown sugar. Once lit, my entire top floor filled up with the scent, and it is just heavenly. The candle burns cleanly and evenly, and it’s the absolute closest I’m getting to candy without breaking my resolutions!
The candle costs €47.00 and is available here.
