The legendary patisserie / salon de thé founded in Paris, 1862, enchanting women all over the world with its "edible jewelry". Ladurée has to this day continued to create not only innovative sweets but also a new culture as one of the greatest patisseries in Paris.
Ladurée has been representing the French “art de vivre” based on the philosophy, “what is really beautiful can intrinsically enchant women by exciting their five senses in an overwhelming manner.” The cosmetics developed under the name of Ladurée therefore also symbolize the essence of the French history and esprit.
Beautiful “goddesses of liberty” who lived in Paris after the Revolution in the late 18th century and pursued their own beauty depending on a unique and individual sensibility.
In the 18th century young Parisian women cast off the post-revolution reign of terror and strict morals, aspiring for freedom and liberation. They remained loyal to France and believed in their senses without losing the pride of the aristocrats who lived in the period of the monarchy.
Merveilleuses (French) refers to a “marvelous,” eccentric and elegant woman

What Les Merveilleuses Ladurée values the most is the whole expression of the face and believe that the most important part for expression is the cheek area.
