A Perfumer’s Garden in Grasse by L’Occitane

  • Gold Gold

Designed by

James Basson

Built by

Peter Dowle

Sponsored by

The perfume industry in Grasse has been in decline for several years and many of the traditional plantations have become overgrown; but now with the support of ecologically sensitive companies like L'Occitane, the industry is experiencing a significant renaissance. The garden is designed to reflect this, with historic elements and a naturalistic view to represent the history of the perfume industry, combined with an emerging, more tended feel that shows the importance of Grasse in the current perfume industry.
