Hello, could you tell us about yourself…

Hello, my name is Françoise., I am 46 years old. I have been working for Promenade des Sens® for about 2 years… I have many interests, ranging from baroque beak flute to contempory art workshops for children at the Grande Halle de la Villette… One could say that all my activities are related to art. Add to that studies in History and History of art and you have a guide who is passionate about her work. My meeting Marie-Bénédicte and Promenade des Sens® have added a really interresting twist to the mix, for Promenade des Sens® has an eye for trends and addresses, for clothing as well as for food, and discovering them spices up in unexpected ways the classic style of visiting. I think you can explore the city in a much better way if you approach what makes it alive : the artisanat, the shops and the people who create them.

Talk to us about your endeavor with Promenade des Sens® and Marie-Bénédicte…

What struck me first when I met Marie-Bénédicte were her lively blue eyes, the look of a passionate person, like me ! I immediately understood that this quest around crafts, around what’s good and beautiful, reveals the identity of a neighborhood and allows the present to cast a different light on the past. One make History shine through these stopovers, with shop-owners communicating readily about what they’re doing and their originality. In terms of good addresses, that’s really what this is all about. MB would never recommend addresses whose owners, notwithstanding the quality of their products, have that lordly attitude which still contributes to give our capital the poor image we all are aware of. You know what they say : « Paris, sure, but without the Parisians ! » The visits with Promenade des Sens® tend to break this image and, on the one hand, reassure the Parisians about what makes their city like no other, and, on the other hand, send a message to the provincials saying that they’re welcome ! As for our foreign customers, they’re just delighted to live a true cultural experience, and to have a real feel of our art-de-vivre. [ Lire la suite ]
