Its a chocolate box fit to be gifted to a Japanese. As you may or may not know, the Japanese put a lot of thought and effort into packaging. Unlike in the west, where the packaging material is merely to conceal and protect the goods within, wrapping in Japan is symbolic and carries expression. We completely agree, all the more so from a luxury point of view.
The Lebanese luxury chocolate company – Patchi has set out to create the most luxuriously packed chocolate ever. They have created a box of 49 hand wrapped chocolates (in suede leather) each of which is embellished with a 24 karat gold flower and Swarovski crystal or a handmade miniature silk rose. Each chocolate is seperated from the other with a gold and platinum lining.
A gold plated plaque inside the box holds a note from the sender for the receiver.
The chocolate itself is in flavours of dark, milk and white, with hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios, rice crispies to mention a few. The chocolate is entirely sugar free (We are not sure if this is a good thing. The best things in life are never sin free).
Priced at EUR 5,000 for a box , a Patchi’s box is available from Harrods.
