It’s certainly not by staying cloistered away in her ivory tower that the Marquise de Sévigné found inspiration for her 17th century social life chronicles! Sometimes in Brittany, sometimes in Louis 14th’s court, our muse knew where to be, and when.
A couple of months ago, we decided to move our Parisian shop to 16 Tronchet road, in the 8th arrondissement, as a tribute to her image. This new setting is situated just steps away from the Madeleine square which is the historical headquarters of our brand. With our royal-blue front window and our fuchsia sign proudly displayed, you cannot miss us in this elegant artery prettily filled with trees.
The magnificent boxes – which are a souvenir of ancient times and which have built the reputation of our house – decorate the store furniture. On the ivory-coloured walls, the marchioness’s writing is imitated alternately with flat tints of royal-blue and bursts of bright colours.
In this high place of French chocolate-making, a multitude of ganaches and other pralines ingeniously covered in dark or milk chocolate await you, either individually or in sets ready to give away. According to the season, you will also find all the jewels of French confectionery: sugar-coated chestnuts, fruit jellies, calissons… Something to satisfy all those with a sweet tooth, who will also enjoy a delicious welcome and advice from passionate people.
You know the Marquise de Sévigné’s new address so don’t make her wait any longer!
