I went to the little store in Galeries Lafayette, which probably hampers my review a bit, especially after having gone to Ladurée afterwards, since I missed the SATC experience and French cafe feeling. But the packaging and presentation was also less nice ..

There was a huge queue on a rainy Saturday afternoon, but we decided to get in line anyway (hey, first macarons in Paris!). We weren't disappointed by the wide variety. In addition to the regulars, there were unique combinations like Olive Oil with Mandarin Orange or Orange Blossom, Rose& Ginger. They were definitely some highlights!

I will surely give it another shot, but at a real boutique!

PH has some wonderful macarons. I would suggest getting an assortment by weight , rather than the more expensive gift boxes if you want to just eat them. My favorites were the isphan, and the rose/lychee one. But all the flavours were very good. The staff can be a bit surly and arrogant at times but don't let that put you off..

The establishment has a wonderful minimalist feel and it is as fashionable as you would expect from one of the best in his class. Try Carette in place the Vosges to see the difference between fashion and (old school) class.

Ladurée is known for their macarons but i think that Pierre Hermé is betterr because they have special macarons with exotic amazing perfumes! Of course that it is not cheap but worth money. I have not tried chocolates or pâte de fruits so can not give my opinion
