A week ago Saturday I strolled down 73 avenue Ledru-Rollin and happened on the Fleuriste,  Arom. recommended by Ines de la Fressange’s book, La Parisienne, the guide to style in Paris….. (aka in English as Parisian Chic)….. and recommended by Carol Gillot, the remarkable artist/blogger of ParisBreakfasts.com (of whom I asked to recommend some fleuristes and who’s always at the ready with marvelous Parisian retail stores with wit, style and an amazing eye) …..  I spoke with Saber of Arom briefly and promised to return and paint his flowers….. The shop was extraordinarily busy….. with a tremendous stock of flowers….many customers waiting…… as is true of all great Fleurists….. A Painting will be done another day!
