Rather than purchasing the typical box of chocolates this Valentines Day, I highly recommend selecting something far from ordinary, and Aftelier Perfumes has created just that with their collaboration with Areté Fine Chocolate! Available in three utterly sublime flavor juxtapositions, Areté Violet-Raspberry 63% Maya Mountain Belize Dark Chocolate, Areté Ylang Ylang- Pear 35% White Chocolate Bar and Areté Ginger-Rose 67% Maya Mountain Belize Dark Chocolate Bar, these melt-in-your-mouth chocolates are unlike anything that you have ever tried.
Aftelier Perfumes and Areté Fine Chocolate are both exceedingly proud of their brilliant collaboration in creating these delectable flavored chocolate bars. Made using Aftelier Perfumes legendary Chef's Essences and Areté Fine Chocolate, these otherworldly creations are to be savored slowly. Of the three flavors, I have tasted all of them except the Areté Ylang Ylang- Pear 35% White Chocolate Bar.
According to Aftelier Perfumes, "So proud of these amazing chocolate bars from our collaboration with Areté Fine Chocolate!"
Areté Fine Chocolate asserts, "We collaborated with renowned artisan perfumer Mandy Aftel to create these special bars. A divine marriage of our Belize Maya Mountain Chocolate and her 100% natural Chef's Essences. We spent six months working together to get the balance just right."
Areté Ylang Ylang- Pear 35% White Chocolate Bar is described as an, "incredible unexpected butterscotch notes appear in this delicious third collaboration with Areté Fine Chocolate!"
Areté Fine Chocolate posits, "this bar is the third in our collaboration with renowned artisan perfumer Mandy Aftel. We were looking for the perfect backdrop and pairing for her magical Ylang Ylang Chef's Essence, and we found it in our 35% white chocolate and Mandy's Pear essence. This bar is as subtle and elegant as our Ginger-Rose and Violet-Raspberry bars are bold and daring."
Areté Violet-Raspberry 63% Maya Mountain Belize Dark Chocolate is a beautifully perfumed chocolate bar of the highest quality that is smooth, rich and aromatic. The marriage between the violet and raspberry essences result in the perfect balance of flavors that delight the senses. The complexity of the flavors unfold when you eat it slowly and allow for the subtlety and refinement of this elegant bar to gradually unfurl.
Areté Ginger-Rose 67% Maya Mountain Belize Dark Chocolate Bar is a beautiful and perfectly balanced commingling of ginger and rose, and while you might wonder whether the ginger is too sharp to pair with the delicacy of the Turkish Rose, I assure you that this flavorful encounter is pure unmitigated perfection. It is subtle, yet complex, and it never overpowers the senses. The ginger is tempered by the rose, and the rose asserts its elegant disposition and ethereal wonderment without diminishing or suppressing the ginger's inherent spicy character. I recommend eating it very slowly to savor every single bit of its magnificence.
Areté Fine Chocolate assets, "we collaborated with renowned artisan perfumer Mandy Aftel to create this special bar. A divine marriage of our Belize Maya Mountain Chocolate and her 100% natural Turkish Rose and Indonesian Ginger Chef’s Essences. We spent almost four months working together to get the balance just right, and if you’re a fan of ginger we think you’ll agree that this bar is as close to perfection as you could hope to get."
$12.00-$15.00 for each 2.2 oz. bar from Aftelier Perfumes (Unaffiliated Links).
