THE PIERRE HERMÉ AND L'OCCITANE STORE
ELYSIA LOVES PIERRE HERMÉ
Pierre Hermé, the world's best pastry chef known for his innovative knowledge, has decided to join forces with the famous beauty product brand l'Occitane en Provence to open a unique place.
Designed as a concept store, the boutique is divided into several areas. On one side, you can buy beauty products, on the other, macarons. There are also spaces dedicated to food service. To further the experience, a workshop has been set up to allow you to discover the art of distillation and the making of body creams and oils.
You will discover unique products created by a four-handed savoir-faire between L'Occitane and Pierre Hermé. The two houses share a passion for the savoir-faire and the origin of the products. Thanks to this passion, they have developed a range of exclusive products with the scents of Jasmine, Immortelle and Neroli, Grapefruit and Rhubarb and finally Honey and Mandarin.
What we love about this concept store is its particular atmosphere. With its colorful, luminous decoration and natural materials with an air of Provence.
PIERRE HERMÉ'S TEA TIME AT CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES
We had the opportunity to go to the store to taste their famous tea-time. Immersed in a universe specific to the two houses, this tea time will make you discover tasty dishes putting nature in the spotlight.
You will have the choice between multiple pastries and drinks with world flavors. On the tea time menu, you will be able to choose between a hot or cold drink, a selection of 3 macarons and a pastry signed Pierre Hermé. You can also opt between a table in their veranda with a view of the Champs-Elysées and the wonderful Arc de Triomphe or in a more Provencal setting in the store’s restaurant room.
We recommend you try their unique pastries such as the Ispahan, a macaron filled with raspberry and letchis or the Tarte Infiniment Vanille, with vanilla from Tahiti, Mexico and Madagascar.
Finally, if you choose to eat at the counter, you will have a magnificent view of the pastry chefs making the macarons and cakes in front of your eyes.
