After 12-years of creating brands for Macy*s, Milène’s position was eliminated in 2016, and she launched her own label Milène Jardine Chocolatier. Offering exotic confections inspired by her travels, the vision is to celebrate diversity through chocolate. Sold online, at boutiques, and for corporate gifting/pairing events, the chocolates have been featured at Christie’s Auction House and Le Cirque, approved by top chefs Marc Forgione and Dominique Crenn, and enjoyed by Warren Buffett and Sting.
