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 finally able to return to France where he was elected a member of the prestigious Académie des Sciences. Drawings made by Louis Marie, circa 1792.
As a young girl, Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium where her grandfather had a nursery. She spent her time 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, perfumes & skincare that focus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances.
