In fact, the gesture became popular in the 50s and inspired person is none other than actor Cary Grant (pictured). It all started when he stayed at the luxurious Mayfair in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. It was, moreover, a frequent guest. Once during the marriage to third wife, actress Betsy Drake, Grant made his appearance at the hotel with one of his mistresses. According to the story, the woman came in one evening before the actor’s apartment where they drank lovemaking, where he discovered an alley “drawn” with chocolates, which began in the living room and continue in the bedroom, on pillows.

Husband liked the idea so much that it began to welcome guests with chocolates placed on pillows in the bedroom. Hundreds of hotels have adopted then the gesture, although hotel Mayfeir gave up after a few years.
