I used to stroll the streets of Paris every autumn with my mother. We stayed in hotel Récamier, just around the corner of the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg. We visited museums, did a lot of shopping, went to fashion shows and had dinner in one of the many Parisian restaurants. Unfortunately my mother passed away 20 years ago, but it’s time to pick up this tradition again with my 7-year old daughter Josephine. She loves flowers as much as I do.
We would definitely stop at the green hotspot Fleuriste en Herbe. The owner, Rambert Rigaud decided to follow his dream at age 40, quit his job of being a studio director at the ateliers of Yves Saint Laurent and Dior and started his own flower boutique. When entering his store it must feel like entering a home. Fresh flowers, antiques and music in the background. With his creativity he makes stunning flower designs for fashion shows and I am sure he knows how to make a great bouquet. You can find his shop in the prestigious 7th arrondissement, on a charming Saint-Germain corner in Paris.
