/ˈPEˌTRIKÔR/  DEFINED

The moment rain hits dry soil, plants and earth release oils that mingle together into this beautiful aroma. It is through this scent that we can deepen our breaths and calm. The word itself comes from the Ancient Greek words of petros, the stones beneath our feet, and ichor, the magical lifeblood of the Greek Gods. Petrichor, in its very name, blends the grounded and ethereal, the earth and the heavens.

DENIS GUERIN, OWNER

After years of exploring a variety of careers in New York City, including education administration and Broadway advertising, I found myself working alongside a wonderfully talented and humble floral designer who gave me the happiest working experience that I ever had and helped me realize that I am a passionate florist.

I started my own floral business because too often we relegate flowers to the categories of gifts, a special treat or even a luxury in comparison to our needs on a daily basis. I believe that flowers should be a part of our lives just like ice cream or that television series you can’t stop watching. Petrichor's primary purpose is to bring unique and high quality flowers, gifts and plants into your life so that you think of them as necessary as the art on our walls, the curtains in our living rooms or the photos of family on our work desks.  Ir is my humble opinion that any relationship involving flowers has great potential because nature's most extraordinary gift is bringing us together. I look forward to having a floral relationship with you.
