"We also window shop, either on Blvd. St. Germain or Rue St. Honore or Avenue Montaigne by the George V. All of the haute couture shops are on those streets. My favorite store in Paris is a kid's store, Bonpoint. That's where I got Eja's first clothes, the clothes we took him home from the hospital in. Gianfranco Ferré doesn't exist in every city, but certainly in Paris, and they have several different shops. They have clothing and fragrances. Place des Victoires is another special shopping place. It's a really trendy area, where I go when I want to buy hip shoes or jeans or that kind of thing."

"The cafes in Paris are fantastic. My favorite cafe area is St.-Michel, on the Left Bank. You also have to go to Angelina for their world-famous hot chocolate. Or to Ladurée for croissants. Both have wonderful tearooms with great salads and warm pastries."

"We love the Palais de la Découverte, the museum just on the other side of the Champs-Elysées. It's really great. The last time we were there, the exhibit was about the history of perfume. They had all of these really old original fragrances. They were displaying all of the different dried flowers that they used from all over the world. Very exotic spices. They had samples of all of these things and explanations of how they processed these things. It was really interesting. This is the type of city where the average person off the street can just knock off and find out how they make perfume. I find Paris very accessible to everyone. There seems to be something for everyone: exhibits, art, music."
