Profile

Channeling its Parisian origins, Ladurée’s location on Madison Avenue is dressed sweetly with Victorian era–inspired décor. Pastels are plentiful and large, golden curtains frame displays of stacked macarons reminiscent of wedding cakes. Credited with inventing the macaron in 1862, the brand remains the standard bearer for the tiny confection. There are over a dozen classic flavors to choose from, including vanilla, coconut, and pecan; while those craving something a little less conventional can opt for seasonal specials like pear & chestnut, praline, and black forest. Word has gotten out about the enticing delicacies, though, and a line out the door has become a permanent fixture here, particularly during the after-school hours—the store claims that teenage girls alone could keep the sweets boutique in business.

The sweet smell of sugar

For those who simply can’t get their fix of the petite treats, Ladurée has an in-store line of fragrances and candles that will keep your home smelling like a macaron paradise.
