Maison Louis Marie

A Family Affair

Perfume With History

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.

Two Hundred Years Later

As a young girl, Marie Du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium, playing in her grandfather's nursery and experimenting with scents in her mother’s greenhouse. This was the very beginning of Maison Louis Marie.

A Fragrance House is Born

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.

Beautifully Crafted

Perfume Oils

Maison Louis Marie perfume oils are a blend of fragrances and Safflower oil which contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid with moisturising properties. Maison Louis Marie perfume oils do not contain parabens or any other toxic ingredients.

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.
