Reviews of interest

Vogue (2015) “Its name is a twist on Victor Hugo, and book lovers will appreciate the visual puns of this chocolatier—decked out with dark shades, like a library—with its clever packaging that seemingly nestles bonbons between the covers of a novel. The chocolates are equally playful, with such flavors as Earl Grey tea, orange and cloves, and lemon and ginger.”

Le Figaro (2011) Ranked #5 in their test of the city’s best strawberry tarts.

Dorie Greenspan (2010) “…there are the chocolates, which are packaged in boxes that look like Moleskin notebooks– the boxes were my favorite things in the shop…Now here’s the surprise: the plain-Jane sweets that were just laid out on a table in a completely unfussy way were terrific!  Perfect, really.”

Table à Découvert (2010) “Toujours est-il que Hugo & Victor…m’a fait une belle impression…Le concept sent bon la création, les saveurs de saison et la cohérence dans le parti pris.”

Chroniques du Plaisir (2010) ” Les gâteaux exposés dans des vitrines individuelles comme des vases Ming…Mais stérilise un peu l’envie aussi…Et le plaisir est là : superbes mille feuilles d’un croustillant extrême (au caramel, à l’ananas rôti), onctueuse mousse de vanille sur un biscuit aux graines de tournesol…”

  1. I discovered Hugo & Victor on my last visit to Paris. I purchased 22 box’s of their most delicious chocolate for gift’s. Very well received by my friends here in the USA. Look forward to visiting Paris and Hugo & Victor this April.
