The French Garden Collection
Villandry has one of the best examples of formal parterres in France and as such they are intricately and painstakingly designed. The gardens are separated into cohesive terraces, each with a different color scheme or design theme. Because of the importance of mixing fruit and vegetables in with their floral parterres, we sought to create a scent that brought out the notes of the fruits and flowers that cover the rest of the gardens.
By thinking back to our own experiences in the gardens of Villandry, we designed a complex scent using plant-based essential oils that includes Italian bergamot, Tunisian neroli, and Chinese may chang that mimics the geometric parterres of colorful vegetables and flowers, the many terraced balconies of intricate hedges and hues, and the lines of fruit trees, vines, and fountains.
Each bath product in this series utilizes dried seasonal blooms and naturally derived micas to imbue them in yellow and gold to harness the colorful fruits and vegetables grown in the lower terraces and the elegance of the château.
Come on a journey with us to the gardens of Villandry as we take you on an immersive journey through the scents of this fruitful formal garden.
