The Four Season Paris
2. Laduree is my all time favourite. It is situated at a most common place for me in Charles de Gaulle however most recently opened at Harrods as well.
I keep musing about the collection of boxes I have, which I use for lip-glosses and lipsticks after all the treats are gone. It is not a privilege or an occasion, but simply an addiction, a craving, which must be satisfied with the best. I know that Lenotre or Pierre Herme are satisfactory, but being a loyal customer or a victim of my love for all things pink (boxes of Laduree are christened with a hue of that color). Its just around the corner from Four Seasons and awaits you on Champs Elysées, among other places.

3. Visit Patrick Roger‘s chocolate shop. I first introduced to this chocolatier a few years ago. He does use higher quality of chocolate which is an acquired taste for the lack of sugar and more of flavour. In my recent stoic pursuit of stolen moments of pistachio and vanilla happiness melting in my mouth, I realized that nothing can compare to this. To all chocolate connoisseurs who are passionate advocates of fair trade chocolate and ethically sourced cocoa beans, as well as revolutionary flavours- this is the place!
Perhaps, in the words of Carries Broadshaw it makes more sense ”I have an addiction, sir”.
4. Show up at Fumoir Restaurant on 6 Rue de l’Amiral de Coligny, which is just around the corner from the Louvre. This was actually recommended by a true Parisienne, so at first I was a little skeptical but the atmosphere and place unveiled itself which all Parisian gastronomic glory and the atmosphere which can’t be found anywhere else. A must!
5. Visit the Louvre ….who can argue with the that?
