Any fashionista worth their salt heads straight to the Rue Royale when in Paris to nibble on tiny Laduree macaroons. So, it’s intriguing to find that Laduree have launched an entire beauty range based on their cult edible fancies. Based around almond oil, known for its high Vitamin A content, the range translates to skin as a fabulously rich moisturiser. It’s heavy on the almond fragrancing though; you’d have to love cakey/almondy/vanilla notes to enjoy using this range. The best thing about the endeavour is the design of the bottle stops – perfect little white macaroons. Available from Harrods. My top tip for shopping in Laduree is to ignore the queue of tourists battling it out for a cake and head straight for the tea shelves, where an elegant green tub of rose tea is far less calorific, and lasts infinitely longer than a bite of sugar.
