Merci Paris

Merci was probably one of my highlights in Paris, I had been to the city so the Louvre wasn't my priority :) Merci is a Parisian concept that gives back to charity, the brain child of Marie-France and Bernard Cohen, founders of the chic kiddies shop Bonpoit. Merci has everything your heart might want, fashion, interiors, books (vintage, amazing!) flowers, 2 cafes, kitchen ware, jewelry and a small Annick Goutal counter. Marie-France Cohen and the late Annick Goutal were sisters. They sell 4 of her fragrances at cheaper prices, no fancy bottle but really amazing smells.
