For the ones who do not know Ladurée yet, please let us introduce the amazing brand to you. The history of Parisian tea salons is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from France’s southwest, created a bakery at 16 rue Royale in Paris. The family business grew and grew through the years. They are famous for  making the most delicious macaroons in the world.

Besides their exquisite bakeries they also have really nice beauty product. These product are available from now on in our stores. Think scented candles, hand lotion, home fragrances, shower and foam bath, body oil , bath salt, and soap.

Amazing macarons by Ladurée

We have mentioned Luxirare to you before. She works magic on food and foodstyling.

We came across Ladurée at the Luxirare website. This is a luxury cakes and pastries brand based in Paris, France. We at Blue Blood are huge fans of macarons and Ladurée does an amazing job making them. It’s easy to tell if a macaron is decent. If it crumbles to the touch, its a good one. You can tell the interior is extremely chewy/supple. The crust is very light and breaks easily.

Take a look and enjoy, but be careful you might start drewling..

L’Eclaireur Candles at Blue Blood


A VISIONARY APPROACH

Martine and Armand Hadida, founders of L’Eclaireur Paris, have  delighted our senses for years. From tasting, seeing and touching, they’ve succeeded to stimulate each of these with ease.
But when they decided to tackle smell with their latest project, a foray into the world of perfume, they sought out Christian Astuguevieille as their Creative Director to use his expertise to conjure up scents that would exceed our very notions of smell.

The fragrances he conceived for this collection are refreshing as they are whimsical. Their themes excite and comfort as you inhale their very essences.

With an unexpected selection of aromas, these candles have the ability to recall a simple childhood memory or call upon even stronger emotions as well as play upon other senses.

Astuguevieille uses ingredients such as Ink, Grass, Absinthe, Tangerine and more, to enchant you. They create illusions, which we savor. The smell of freshly cut grass on a warm spring day, a hint of licorice, the freshness of tangerine, reminiscent of when you’re peeling one yourself, and the smell of dried ink on your hands after writing a letter are thoughts that come to mind.

SÉRIE NOIRE
While the collection is shrouded in mystery by its black boxes and silken paper, and the perfumed wax is encased in the simplicity of matte black glass, the key lies within the colour-coded fragrances :
Grass is an earthy green, while the dark liquorice of Zan seeks refuge in its white opposite. Encre leaves hints of purple ink, the orange of the Tangerine emulates the glowing sun and Absinthe wears the colour of
the Green Chartreuse.

07
Encre
Memories of ink stains on your fingertips.
A clever tale told through the play of incense pitted against
the moody Balsamic Fir wood. Dark and captivating is its aura.
Throw in the unexpected spark of an orange kiss, and with this
trio of ingredients, they summon a rhapsody of nostalgia.

10
Zan
The hidden note of licorice rouses you with subtle restraint,
an effect that is most bewitching.
With its bouquet of Ylang-Ylang petals, Zan unveils the
exquisiteness of smell in its refined essence and unexpected
surprises.

12
Tangerine
The scent from this citrus is enlightening.
Its ability to uplift any mood is unparalleled, and with the
use of the essence of Neroli, it brings its carnal and
voluptuous notes to the foreground.
Its sensuality is reminiscent of a walking through an
orchard on a warm summer night when the heat of the
sun still lingers on the blossoms and permeates the air with its heady scent.

26
Grass
Run free and lose yourself.
As you escape through the dreamy meadows of freshly cut
grass, the bouquet of fresh violets and the ripe tang of figs,
the earthly realm embraces you. With the freshness of
bergamot, grapefruit and tangerine, inhale and savor the
essence of life.

40
Absinthe
Wormwoods’ light and bitter tone envelopes you while
stimulating your senses.
Through the entangled clouds of tea and mint, the siren calls
of theses ethereal fragrances soothe your senses.

L’Eclaireur Candles will be available in the Blue Blood stores soon!

Come in and let your senses get carried away…
