These Magnolia trees on a discreet Paris street smelled of jasmine green tea and lemon. The scent was not very pronounced but you could catch whiffs of it from time to time, delicately perfuming their immediate surroundings...

The best place to be was underneath them, for catching their elusive fragrance.

There are areas in Paris which are more bucolic than others and places which are veritable "scent holes". I'll say that it is one of them but the scenting is a bit understated. Off the top of my head, I can think of four places where the scent of blooming flowers is exceptionally intoxicating.

I'm not a country girl, but I love it when Paris reveals its "campagne à Paris" side. I need cobblestones in my life, and mysterious streets.
