Valentine’s Day is closer than you might think. We’re looking at the Vosges “Sacred Love” Valentine’s collection, inspired by ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. There are “self-love” gifts and chocolate boxes, too.

Did ancient Egyptians enjoy coffee or chocolate? No, but they did enjoy other luxurious ingredients found in some of these chocolate boxes, like rose water, and figs (e.g. in the Bastet Collection)!
