If you can’t go to Paris, bring Paris to you. That’s right, with France’s famous Ladurée Boutique opening tomorrow on Robson Street in Vancouver, you can either soak up a certain je ne sais quoi from its opulent tea salon, or take its macarons, pastries, candles and fragrances home to recreate the charm and luxury.
Expect its iconic angels painted on the ceiling, pastels, florals and romantic rose hues, as well as marble-topped counters and tables in the space, and a menu of sweets that include a maple syrup macaron for its Canadian opening and savoury treats. Available for Easter until March 28 is its limited-edition Yuko Higuchi macaron gift boxes that you will definitely want to get your hands on.
The allure of Laduree extends beyond confectionary. The 154-year-old business has partnered with fashion and jewelry designers like Lanvin and Emilio Pucci in the past to create special macaron sets, fully endorsing a stylish and artful lifestyle. It is now one of the most famous patisseries in the world, with locations in over 25 countries.
