Maison Louis Marie pays tribute to a family history of botanical discoveries. The story of this contemporary fragrance house begins in 1792 when Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars was exiled to Madagascar and the Mauritius Islands during the French Revolution. A decade later, Louis returned to France with over 2000 plant specimens and was honored with entry into the Academie des Science.
Fast forward two centuries, his ancestor Marie de Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium, always fascinated by candle making and the scents in her mother’s greenhouse. Personal interest combined with a respect for her family’s legacy led her to begin Maison Louis Marie, a line of luxury perfumes and candles designed to carry on a floral tradition.
