This is the 'early' Paris Saint-Valentin report. Next week I should have more...
So what are you wishing for on the 14th?
Guerlain is promoting la Petite Robe Noir
On a brief waltz down rue du Bac 75007 quite a few places were ready for St.V day like the new Angelina.
They have a blowout special dinner with champagne and lobster at their rue de Rivoli shop. Or you can get this his and hers white chocolate and dark chocolate yin/yang gateau.
I fell hard for their piece monte made of simply madeleines. Elegant and maybe a year's supply..?
Dalloyau down the street has a special heart-shaped gateau called 'Red Kisses'.
But this framboise charlotte looked even more tempting.
Rose-colored glasses galore on rue du Bac...
The newish Pierre Marcolini is famous for their red framboise chocolate ganache heart candies.
You can buy a ton of them in this round box...
Or inside a red chocolate heart called 'Cache Coeur' hidden heart.
At the end of rue du Bac La Grand Epicerie is lollypop Central. Their selection is endless.
Or make your own mini chocolat moelleux hearts with this mold.
And for Spot, a nice water bowl (probably a torte pan..?).
I lurve these gorgeous transparent red water bottles.
But pink champers from Fauchon is more appropriate I guess.
Fauchon's windows say, "French Art To Kiss" whatever that means. You tell me ;))
Les Fees Patissieres has a special order valentine for him or her with the traditional French daisy petals (unlike ours "he loves me, he loves me not). Theirs says "he loves me a little, he loves me madly, he loves me passionately".
My dream of a valentine would be this lobster heart from Fauchon. They offer it all year if you don't get the chance next week by the way.
But I'd be quite happy with a bouquet of French breakfast radi/radishes. KISS
Saint-Valentines in a beauty salon.
At top chocolatier Patrick Roger you never know what to expect. You tell me what's going on here. Kusmi Tea has a dreamy commercial of lovers underwater amidst swirling silk. Just beautiful! More to come next week. And wifi is coming to chez moi TOMORROW! Yay
