Paris, Opera Garnier. Jean Paucton, 76 years old, carries a hive in front of the Opera Garnier. "I have become despite myself the most famous beekeeper in the world. And I began selling at Fauchon by just going to see them. That's how things worked then..My customers are above all seduced by the bit "Opéra de Paris". It would work on the Eiffel Tower also. It's a small, inexpensive souvenir. I sell 125 grams for 4.50EUR, that makes 36EUR a kilo. The price for the public reaches 120EUR per kilo, which makes it one of the most expensive honeys in the world."
