Maison Louis Marie is the result of a long, storied family history with scent, beginning with Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars: a pioneer in French botanical history, he was exiled to Madagascar, La Reunion and the Mauritius islands during the French revolution. There, he discovered a vast array of plant specimens, collecting over 2000 to bring back to France ten years later. Home again at last, he was elected a member of the prestigious Académie des Sciences

This romantic scent is a sandalwood fragrance with a dominant cedarwood and sandalwood accord that's supplemented by a spicy cinnamon nutmeg complex with an earthy vetiver note.

No.5 Kandilli
Kandilli is a small village set in the Asian bank of the Bosphorus in Istanbul, where my mother, Twinkie, experienced her first scent of a tuberose flower at the age of sixteen. This scent is a tropical tuberose accorded with a white lily background and sits on a warm amber sandalwood base.

No.6 Neige de Printemps
Neige de Printemps, meaning 'spring snow,' brings back the memory of our grandmother, Tita, who spent the spring seasons in Switzerland during the carnival of Cran sur Sierre. This scent is a fruity fragrance with a Blood Orange top note enhanced by a rich blend of Mandarin, Kumquat and a touch of sugar.

No.8 La Petite Louise

No.9 Vallée de Farney
Vallée de Farney is a nature preserve located in the native forests of the Mauritius Island. The forest is home to more than 100 plant species and numerous animals where Louis Marie discovered many new plant specimens. Inspired by the wild forest, this scent is a woody, mineral fragrance. The top note is a citrus accord of grapefruit, orange and black pepper enhanced by cedarwood and Patchouli.

No.10 Aboukir
Aboukir Bay is a spacious bay on the Mediterranean sea in Egypt, lying between Abu Qir and the Rosetta mouth of the Nile. Aristide, brother of Louis Marie, was a french naval officer, and hero of the battle of Aboukir. Inspired by a lush, intense, natural landscape, this fragrance has a spicy eucalyptus top note with a floral amber heart composed of jasmine, lavender, carnation and a rich amber accord. The base notes of the fragrance incorporate a definitive woody accord of Patchouli, cedarwood and vetiver with a sweet tonka bean accord.

No.11 La Themis
La Themis was the name of the ship that carried Louis Marie back to France after 10 years in exile on Madagascar in 1802.

The Spearmint character is supported by a Wintergreen note. The fragrance dries down to a sweet Tonka bean accord.

No.12 Bousval
Bousval is named after our mother’s hometown: there, she'd walk her four collies during warm summer evenings, spending most of her time camping outside, catching fish, and picking fresh vegetables at the pond next to her home. Inspired by her enchanted summers, this scent has nuances of Valencia Oranges are joined with Italian Bergamot and bold White Cardamom. A signature heart of Ginger Flower is complimented with Eucalyptus and earthy notes of Oakmoss. Undertones of rich, sultry woods add to misted Musk for a modern aroma.
