The French Garden Collection - Limited Edition
The Château d’Azay-le-Rideau sits on a small island in the river Indre and is surrounded by English-styled gardens. Its history dates back centuries to François I - a king of France known today for his habit of leisure and construction of Renaissance chateaux. Here, the landscape hides the encroached village and one finds themselves in a place of watery reflections, groves of exotic evergreens and trees, and winding paths. We felt this Renaissance masterpiece was the perfect inspiration for a warm wintery fragrance (Azay-le-Rideau is celebrated for its lavish holiday décor and fanfare) that both utilizes the scents found in the park as well as capture some of that holiday spirit.
By reliving our experiences on the grounds of Azay-le-Rideau, we designed a complex scent using plant-based essential oils that includes Canadian black hemlock, Brazilian maté, and Croatian sage to conjure up memories of earthy, crackling stone fireplaces, of lush evergreen groves bowing amid a flurry of snow, and of comforting, familiar holidays spent in wonder and excitement.
Come on a journey with us to the landscapes of Azay-le-Rideau as we enchant the senses with warm thoughts of the winter season.
