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. Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium, playing in her grandfather’s nursery while making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s greenhouse. Years later, Maison Louis Marie was born: using the rich botanical history of her family as her inspiration and her guide, Marie has created luxury candles, perfumes, and skincare that focus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances. Made in harmony with the environment, Marie believes in making every effort to preserve the unique terroir of each fragrance element as it is derived from nature. All candles are sustainably packaged.
