The history of Parisian culture is one long love story. In this program, everyday people describe their significant other's physical characteristics and personality, set up a date, and express their opinions while clothes-shopping. In addition, controversial fashion designer Chantal Thomass, who made a name for herself creating super-sexy lingerie, is profiled, along with the master perfumer, or "nose," of Jean Patou Paris's fragrance division.
