It has been said that flowers and champagne set the stage, but chocolate steals the show. Did you know that a piece of chocolate melting in your mouth is more intense than a passionate kiss – and the effects last four times as long? Beauty too can’t resist chocolate’s siren call; you’ll find it included in everything from fragrance to bronzing powder.
