If you love Christmasy feels and all that goes with cold weather (mulled Wine, Christmas markets) then winter is the best time to visit Paris. The temperatures vary from 0C° up to 10C°, and the city has less than 6 hours of light. I’ll recommend visiting Paris before Christmas. Indeed, January and February are the coldest months in Paris. Snow in Paris is rare, however, it can snow for a couple of days in February or March.

  • Hi Leonce. Great article. Thank you. Can I ask you to write an article about the fragrances and deodorants that French prefer? What are your favorite? Or is winter so much about hand creams and body care? Thank you very much I will be very much looking forward.
    Brst regards Sylvia

  • I love this blog so much and I love this post! I love all of the pieces you have mentioned and think each piece is wonderful to have in any wardrobe. So timeless and classy. I’m currently loving cardigans and I had never paid much attention to them before. Or I had only considered long cardigans (which seem to be popular here in the USA). But I love the cropped cardigan look. So chic. I would love to see a blog post on either books that you love or books French women love! 🙂 you’re amazing! Keep putting out this amazing content!

    • Thank you very much for your nice feedback <3
      It's a wonderful idea! I have so many books that I love, I'll write an article about them soon!
      Merci beaucoup
