The L'Occitane Immortelle Garden
The L’Occitane Immortelle Garden recreates the Corsican maquis (Mediterranean vegetation) and brings it to life in the heart of Chelsea. L’Occitane has chosen this magnificent island to inspire their garden as it is the home of their award-winning skincare collection.
To recreate the wild landscape of the maquis, designer Peter Dowle has constructed an uphill rocky terrain framed by typical Corsican trees and plants. The bright yellow Immortelle flowers Helichrysum orientale provide the garden’s main focus. The design features an outdoor seating terrace, a small lagoon and a sandy beach footpath.
