Introducing one of our favourite and most popular brands, Ladurée. A wide range of excellent scented candles, perfumes and accessories but things started a little differently...
THE STORY OF..Ladurée began as a French luxury bakery and sweets maker house created in 1862. It is one of the world's best-known premier sellers of the double-decker macaron, 15,000 of which are sold every day. The Pâtisserie E. Ladurée company (société Pâtisserie E. Ladurée) is a (simplified joint stock corporation) and has its head office in Marcq-en-Baroeul, France.
MORE HISTORY.. Under the Second Empire, cafés developed and became more and more luxurious. They attracted Parisian high society. Along with the chic restaurants around the Madeleine, they became the showcases of the capital. The beginning of this century found Paris wrapped up in a frenzy of entertainment and going out on the town. Parisians flocked to the Universal Exposition. Women were also changing. They wanted to make new acquaintances, but literary salons and literature circles were outmoded. Louis Ernest Ladurée’s wife, Jeanne Souchard, had the idea of mixing styles: The Parisian café and pastry shop gave birth to one of the first tea rooms in town. The ”salon de thé” had a definite advantage over the cafés: women could gather in complete freedom.
CANDLES & FRAGRANCES..Centuries later candles and scented objects were introduced. Deep and strong French scents for all to enjoy. This is where our true love affair with Ladurée began. Travelling the European continent over 10 years ago we stumbled across the brand that made us instantly fall in love. Something we certainly wanted to bring home for all Australians to enjoy. Something to remind you all of a destination that made you feel warm, fruity or relaxed. Bringing you back to your "happy place". Luxury Candles & Fragrance Australia proudly promote Ladurée Candles as one its leading brands that is recently gaining some great exposure and credibility in both Australia and New Zealand.
