GARDENIA GARDENGARDENIA GARDEN
A wild and tropical flower, the gardenia has become a fixture in the gardens of Western Europe thanks to the indefinable elegance of its white flowers and its heavenly scent.
A sun-drenched garden, planted with gardenias as far as the eye can see, watered by warm yet refreshing tropical showers, nurtured by the sympathetic climate.

PÉTALES DE CAMÉLIAPÉTALES DE CAMÉLIA
An explosion of powdery petals with fruity mandarin and grapefruit notes, imbued with the levity of camellia and lily-of-the-valley, cradled by a base note of patchouli.
Native to the forests of the Far East, camellia is often associated with the southernmost regions of Japan, where it was once the subject of sacred rituals. As far back as 1783, it had already acquired an aura of prestige and fashion, thanks in no small part to Josephine de Beauharnais. Her passion was such that, as Empress of France, she would plant the flower in her gardens at the Château de Malmaison on the outskirts of Paris.

ROSE DES BOISROSE DES BOIS
The rose is the most widely grown flower in the world, leading to a certain ambiguity in the symbolism that surrounds it. Yet if there is a reason why this Queen of Flowers – as the rose is known – is so coveted, it is surely its close association with love and weddings.
A floral and powdery scent: akin in fragrance and perfection to a wild rose, growing in humid woodland, tentatively illuminated by some hopeful rays of sun as they push their way through the scattered clouds.
