French Poems
and Valentine chocolate Bouchée

For RICHART collectors of our ephemeral collections through the years, this limited-edition gift box features all 3 new creations by Michel RICHART for his Valentine's Day chocolate collection, "L'Amour", and the dark chocolate bouchée that derives from one of them. Each heart-shaped dark or milk chocolate is inspired by a French poem, described below with its corresponding ingredients.

1. "Day leaves and dew froth, Reeds of wind, scented smiles"
Taken from "La Courbe De Tes Yeux" (The Curve Of Your Eyes) by Paul Eluard, this extract inspired a recipe based on the minerality of the Vanilla from Tahiti, the freshness of sweet mint and peppermint, and a very well balanced Madagascar dark chocolate shell 69%.

2. "Here - some fruits, some flowers, some leaves and some branches
And here my heart which beats for you alone."
With this chocolate, Michel RICHART translates Paul Verlaine's "Green" poem into unforgettable flavors. In a 70% Dominican Republic dark chocolate shell, some bits and purée of raspberry, some essential oil of rose, lime, and blackcurrant pepper, to inspire freshness, enthusiasm, and the vigor of a newborn love.

3. "Thus the lover from an adored body
Plucks memory's exquisite flower."
Charles Baudelaire's "Parfum" exhales, in this creation, the softness of a fine milk chocolate shell, in which orange, yuzu, grapefruit, and iris absolute intertwine their flavors.

Box size: 7.5" x 7.5", presented with a ribbon and an optional free message card. Handmade and imported from France.
