Paris shopping: Au Nom de la Rose

These tiny little shops are tucked all over Paris, and they are like little floral jewelry boxes, with fragrance added.  They often spread rose petals on the sidewalk outside their shops, which just about breaks your heart.  Floral arrangements are available from the most tiny nosegay (what a treat to carry to dinner!) to the most immense "boy did I screw up" apology bouquet imaginable.  Only in Paris could roses be so cherished!


  1. And those store fronts are so photogenic! My favorite photo from Paris is one of the front of a flower shop.

  2. Beautiful. I'm sure it must be quite a treat to walk by and see and smell all those beauties!
