Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars was a pioneer in French botanical history. During the French revolution, he was exiled to Madagascar, La Reunion and the Mauritius islands where he discovered a vast array of plant specimens. Ten years later and bearing a collection of over 2000 plants Louis Marie was elected a member of the prestigious Académie des Sciences.
200 years later Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s green house. With the creation of Maison Louis Marie, she has built upon the rich botanical history of her family with luxury candles and perfumes that focus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances.
Neige de Printemps, meaning “spring snow,” brings back the memory of my grandmother, Tita, who spent the spring seasons in Switzerland during the carnival of Cran sur Sierre.
