Looks pretty. Ordered 3 variations with high hopes but was left sorely disappointed. Instagram-worthy. Nothing else to rave about.

I usually purchase the eclairs at the Galeries Lafayette mall but they also have their own stores which allow you to sit in.

All the eclairs are beautifully made and are delicious as well! Favourites include the creme brulee, pistachio, white chocolate and caramel eclairs. Highly recommend these eclairs!!

I saw these eclairs for the first time at Lafayette Gourmet and I fell in love with them immediately. Their stand is beautiful and colorful. Their eclairs are little sweet art masterpieces.

I adore eclair number 14: Barlette Praliné. Their description: croustillant amandes, creme noisette (crunchy almonds, hazelnut cream). For some unknown reason, food described in French sound extremely appealing!. And in this case, the description is pale when you compare it with the actual product, with the cream and the almonds and the chocolate and hazelnut sensation that you bite and feel in heaven. You never want your eclair-eating-experience to end!!

If you are in Paris and you see a L'Eclair de Genie, just go in and treat yourself.....If you happen to go to one... get a box of 4 and go to the river and enjoy the best eclairs you will have in the world! You won't want to share them but it's a good excuse to try all the amazing flavours that they do...For me, Paris was always about the Macarons, but now my diet devil has added these to my list. I wish I had bought some home with me! There is a shop at Gare du Nord but it shuts in the evening if you are on a later train back..Enjoy!
