It's no wonder this discreet little florist in Saint-Germain-des-Prés is a favorite of Sofia Coppola . Walk inside the doorway, and prepare to be engulfed by a cloud storm of Paris' prettiest cut flowers: Inside the Odorantes shop, chalkboard gray walls are a perfect foil for the riot of color that fills vases, covers tabletops, and overwhelms you in the best possible way: Above: Photograph by Liza Bliss via Flickr.
