The French Garden Collection
The Luxembourg palace and gardens in Paris were erected by the widowed queen Marie de Medici in the 1600’s and today honor the many famous writers, educators, queens, women, and other notable figures through sculptures, art, and other signifiers. Although the palace hosts the French senate today, we wanted to formulate a scent that captured the floral scents of the plants that grow there as well as pay tribute to the women and queens that the gardens cherish.
By reminiscing on our own experiences in the Luxembourg gardens, we designed a complex scent using plant-based essential oils that includes Moroccan neroli, Indian jasmine, and Madagascar vanilla to define the rose gardens of Marie de Medici, the parterres of pink and red flowers, and the grand collection of glasshouse orchids.
Each bath product in this series utilizes dried seasonal blooms and naturally derived micas to imbue them in pink and red to embody the central parterres of sweet smelling flowers and to celebrate the strong females depicted in the statuary.
Come on a journey with us to the Luxembourg gardens in Paris as we guide you through the scents of this floral menagerie.
