“Juliette Armanet, a feminist French artist. We’re the same age and she was a journalist before starting her career as a singer, just like I was before becoming a florist. She’s a model in the sense that you should believe in yourself, follow your intuition, and not care about what others would think – just focus on being good at what you do. Her songs are a true pleasure to listen to. The lyrics and melodies are so emotional and make you want to dance. They are very introspective, and she has a certain sense of humour. She doesn’t take herself too seriously!” – Aude Giraud, founder of local florist Ask A French Flowers
