Maison Louis Marie is the result of a long, storied family history with scent, beginning with Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars discovering a vast array of plant specimens while exiled to Madagascar, La Reunion and the Mauritius islands during the French Revolution. His descendant and company founder Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium grew up experiments with scents while making candles in her grandfather's nursery. Years later, Maison Louis Marie was born: using the rich botanical history of her family as her inspiration and her guide, Marie creates luxury candles 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. Committed to clean beauty, Maison Louis Marie candles are free from toxic and environmentally harmful ingredients, and are never tested on animals or made with animal-derived ingredients.
