A real temple to nostalgia, Patrice Chapon’s boutique is a delightful throwback to old-fashioned candy shops. One wall is covered with chocolate molds, while copper melting pots and other utensils are tucked under old wooden counters, and the packaging recreates a turn-of-the-century advertising poster. In addition to a full range of ganaches and pralinés, Chapon’s succulent pâte d’amande (almond paste) bonbons are flavored with tangerines and pears.
