If I was in Paris Parte Quatre

If I was in Paris the provisioning of the apartment would include fragrant flowers and bougies or candles.
I know the 'New Panetone" color of the year is orange. 
 Looks like Mother Nature beat them to it with this rose bouquet in a little teapot
with a dragonfly on it.

I think I would love the different shades of pink in this bouquet.

Sooo cheerful.!

I think I would get an orchid branch for the "Zen" bathroom,
no vases left so I would just put in a coffee cup.

It would be the time of year for hyacinths, Love their fragrance and the color... 
 This would look nice on the secretary.

These would be purchased here, the little shop on Ile St Louis.

Then over to Durance for bougies....

I would pick the Poudre de Riz or Rice Powder candle.  So clean and fresh!

They have body products as well as fragrances. The design of the shops is gorgeous.
The outside in grey and taupes. Pictures of the shop from the website of the talented designer of the
Durance shops in Paris Go there to see other lovely Durance shops in Paris.
If I was in Paris I would have bought some bath things too. If I was in Paris.

I think I can almost smell this!!!!!!
