C’est la Saint-Valentin! Bonne fête aux amoureux!

Today is the 14th February – time to wish all the lovers of France a great Valentine’s Day (“La Saint-Valentin”, in French).

By the way, did you know that, according to a recent poll, 71% of French people celebrate Valentine’s Day, spending about fifty euros each on presents such as flowers, jewellery or a romantic dinner…

Pâtisseries and Chocolateries such as Ladurée or La Maison du Chocolat take the opportunity of St. Valentine’s Day to introduce new collection dedicated to love.

A très bientôt,
