Au nom de la rose in Montmartre. Yes, I was in Paris for the first time and I just could not pass up this gem of a store.
I know it’s not even close to Valentine’s or Mother’s Day but who says you need an excuse to love roses.
Even on such a cloudy, wet day bouquets of roses and petals can bring smiles to most.
Au nom de la rose has fragrant gifts, food products and cosmetics as well.
The saying: ” It’s all in the presentation” definitely applies here. And the scents emanating from the store were just heavenly.
Maybe this is the original “eye candy” – you can simply admire the beauty of roses and let their extraordinary scents whiff about you.
And if you are inclined to purchase they have an on- line store but at the moment only deliver in France. I noticed they have stores in other European cities as well. Maybe you’ll get lucky.
Au nom de la rose is not only franchised but environmentally and ethically conscious as well. They have a keen commitment to protect roses and gardens in France as well as in Ecuador. The employees and entrepreneurs of the company got together and formed an association called A Rosier Life which develops social and environmental projects, improving living conditions, protecting the environment and more.
Now that makes me feel even better.
