A fragranced candle, with a delicate and refined scent

It’s always a pleasure to receive a scented candle, especially on Mother’s Day. It’s a gift that lasts longer than the traditional bouquet of flowers, but which has the same objective: to fill a room with the delightful scents of nature. The Le Jardin Retrouvé scented candle holders are cast in Grasse, in a beautiful hand-glazed Limoges porcelain pot, close to our French artisanal heart. After fifty hours of fragrance, the pot remains a beautiful keepsake which has many practical uses as well as classic good looks. Our Maison de Parfum has a choice of five fragrant candles, so why not choose the one that’s perfect for your mother?

🍑Osmanthe Liu Yuan : Fruity scents of peach, jasmine and osmanthus, enhanced by nuances of leather. The interior of the jar is apricot coloured.

🩰Cuir de Russie : woody and floral scents of violet, galbanum, cade wood and styrax. The interior of the jar is dove grey.

🌿 Mousse Arashiyama : scents of oak moss, red berries and fig leaves. The interior is glazed in celadon green.

🌹Rose Trocadéro : Sweet, floral fragrance of rose, coriander, blackcurrant and white musk. The interior is powder pink.

🌟 Tubéreuse Trianon : opulent, solar scents of tuberose, jasmine, ylang ylang and coconut. The interior of the pot is sunshine yellow.

A Scented Stem diffuser, for an elegant touch

Let the scent of French haute parfumerie fragrance drift around the home, when you give her a Scented Stem diffuser, a true innovation from Le Jardin Retrouvé. The porous porcelain stem exudes exquisite scents throughout the room and has remarkable powers of projection. Once again, this gift can become a beautiful artisan keepsake with its fine white porcelain pot adorned with a gingko leaf pattern. The diffuser has a lid made of raw beech wood with a hole in the centre to hold the famous Scented Stem. The diffusion properties have proved both stronger and longer than traditional bamboo stems and can be reused indefinitely. The Limoges diffuser pot can enjoy a second life, with many practical uses. Every pot is also refillable, thanks to a recycled and recyclable aluminium refill flask containing the fragrance of your choice. Just like our scented candles, our diffusers are available in 5 different scents:

🍑 Osmanthe Liu Yuan, for an enchanting atmosphere of sunshine.

🩰Cuir de Russie, which projects sensual, smoky notes.

🌿Mousse Arashiyama, for the scent of the deep green forest

🌹 Rose Trocadéro, for softness and serenity.

🌟Tubéreuse Trianon, for a tender and sweet embrace.

Our skincare duo: The Tubéreuse Trianon scented scrub and matching body milk

How about making the perfect gift for Mother’s Day a pampering treat? Our skincare duo consists of two products: a creamy scrub and a moisturising lotion, both scented with our bestselling floral fragrance Tubéreuse Trianon. The ingredients in these two beauty products are 99% natural. They can be used on hands and body and are suitable for all skin types.

The exfoliating cream contains small, fully biodegradable castor beads. These have the power to gently exfoliate the skin. The cucumber seed oil extract in the scrub cream helps to moisturise and soothe the skin. After rinsing, the skin becomes smoother and more radiant, with a light floral fragrance. 

The moisturising milk also contains cucumber extract, which has moisturising and soothing properties. As well as leaving the scent of Tuberose Trianon fragrance on your skin, the body milk also adds a delicate iridescent shimmer, as if by magic!

Just a few ideas to inspire you and help you find the perfect Mother’s Day gift, letting her know how very special she is to you.

The notes of Eau des Délices

Top notes: bergamot, lemon, mandarin, verbena, petit grain, orange
Heart notes: orange blossom, lavender, clary sage
Base notes: patchouli, vetiver, musk, oakmoss

The origin of Eau des Délices

1982: This is the year that Yuri Gutsatz developed Eau des Délices, a gender free aromatic citrus fragrance. It is an eau fraiche, the very first from the Haute-Parfumerie house Le Jardin
Retrouvé. In the 1980s, fragrance trends veered towards the provocative and evoked the zeitgeist of luxury living. However, the perfumers of the time also noticed an appetite for lighter and more natural smelling scents. The fresh notes of Eau des Délices were a perfect match for this demand.
The fragrance was inspired by the famous triptych The Garden of Delights, painted by Hieronymus Bosch in 1503. Currently on display at the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain, this masterpiece features many extraordinary creatures and enigmatic symbolisms. The first panel is a representation of Paradise, the second alludes to the pleasures of life and the ephemeral nature of the elements of the natural world. The last panel refers to Hell and the torments within.
When you look at this painting of a fantasy garden full of the possible and the impossible, Eau des Délices is the perfect accompaniment, with its citrus fruits, orange blossom and oak
moss. Placed in the lush green garden of your imagination, this is a fragrance that perfectly evokes nature, pleasure and the mysteries of life itself.

2016: the return of Eau des Délices

After Yuri’s death in 2005, it was eleven years before Le Jardin Retrouvé was brought back to life, thanks to his son Michel Gutsatz and Michel’s artist wife Clara Feder. Their serendipitous meeting with perfumer Maxence Moutte enabled them to recreate seven of Yuri’s classic compositions. Among this selection of eaux de parfum, one eau fraiche was singled out for revival. With a touch of nostalgia and a sprinkling of enchantment, Eau des Délices, transports the wearer to the wonderful world of traditional perfumery.

Eau des Délices : an invigorating wave of freshness…

With its sparkling and invigorating accords, Eau des Délices shares the lightness of a classic cologne, always in demand during the during the hot summer months. Sweet, zesty scents of lemon, tangerine and orange emerge delightfully, gradually giving way to a musky, woody accord, perfect for any occasion. It is these more vegetal base notes that give Eau des Délices its unique magic and longevity.
From the very first spray, senses are awakened as if by the sun and childhood outdoor memories of picnics and hide-and-seek dance among the green grass.
Eau des Délices takes you on a journey along the Mediterranean coast and invites you to swim in an ocean of serenity and freshness. It is a delicate, timeless blend that invites comfort and well-being, even when the sun doesn’t shine. Eau des Délices is the ideal daily companion for all seasons and all weather.

The notes of Citron Boboli

Top notes: lemon, lime, orange, galbanum, cinnamon, petit grain
Heart notes: clove, black pepper, geranium
Base notes: vanilla, musk

The sources of inspiration for Citron Boboli

1977: Citron Boboli was created by master perfumer Yuri Gutsatz and was originally named Citron Poivré. This spicy, aromatic fragrance cleverly blends the energy of citrus notes with exotic sun warmed spices. Like many fragrances of the era, this eau de parfum was created for both men and women.
Perfume trends in 1977 were influenced by the zeitgeist of the mid to late seventies and reflected a cultural desire for both sensuality and freedom and an appetite for eastern philosophy. In fact, when creating Citron Boboli, Yuri was inspired by the different plants and ingredients he discovered during his years in India, namely pepper, clove and galbanum.
Perhaps it is this influence that makes Citron Boboli so transportive, evoking exotic scenes and enticing aromas from the sub-continent. On its journey around the world, Citron Boboli gently alights on the Mediterranean coast of Italy and takes you to the famous Boboli Gardens, located on the top of a hill behind the Palazzo Pitti. A breathtaking vista of Florence lies beneath you, teeming with stories and abundant with history and culture. You are surrounded by idyllic landscapes and Renaissance sculptures frozen in time, as fountains and grottoes reveal their beauty to you. The air is scented by uplifting citrus aromas of lemon and orange and petitgrain. The Boboli Gardens, originally owned by the Medici family, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And if you can’t get there in person? Citron Boboli will take you there in your waking dreams.

Citron Boboli: The Scent of Joie de Vivre!

The Sicilian lemon leads the citrus accord from the very first invigorating spray. Feel-good emotions come flooding in, resplendent with holiday memories of sunshine and skies.
Perhaps this Mediterranean beauty will awaken childhood memories of delicious curds and pastries as the notes dance in the air around you. A heart of radiance blooms brightly, dusted
lightly with powder as the red blooms of geranium point their faces towards the the sunlight.
Exotic sun warmed spices mellow seamlessly into a comforting embrace of cinnamon and vanilla that lingers long after the sun has set.

Citron Boboli is a scent of contrasts: as wholesome as it is sensual, as bright as it is mellow.
When summer temperatures soar, Citron Boboli refreshes. When the evening sky turns gold, a warm cloak of scent sits gently on your shoulders. A scent for all seasons, a scent for all people.

The composition of Osmanthe Liu Yuan

Notes of Osmanthus, jasmine, peach and leather.

Candle made in France, reusable jar, 100% Vegan ingredients.

100% Made in France

Scented Stem: refillable and reusable, 100% Vegan ingredients, 92% natural products in the fragrance.

The inspiration behind Osmanthe Liu Yuan

Osmanthe Liu Yuan was inspired by the garden of the same name, located in the city of Suzhou, China. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. The Liu Yuan Garden has existed since 1593, during the Ming Dynasty. It is regarded as one of the four most beautiful gardens in China and is known as the “strolling garden” or “garden of nonchalance”.

The garden is a perfect harmony between the enchantment and beauty of nature and ornate architectural features. There are several zones within the Liu Yuan Garden including rockeries, waterways and green hills, as well as pavilions and pagodas. Among the lush vegetation of the garden are magnolias, laurel trees, peach trees, bonsai trees and ancient gingko trees. The solar, fruity fragrance of these breath-taking pathways induces a feeling of deep serenity and calm. It is this feeling that our perfumer aimed to replicate in our Osmanthe Liu Yuan home fragrance range.

Osmanthe Liu Yuan: the scented candle

The Osmanthe Liu Yuan candle perfumes your home with a seamless blend of jasmine and osmanthus, inspired by childhood nostalgia of jam making in a Provencal kitchen. The unique accord of the osmanthus flower creates an enchanting atmosphere in your room, before gently revealing a nuance of leather, adding refinement and elegance to this fruity floral aroma.

The Osmanthe Liu Yuan candle was cast in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, in a pot made from fine Limoges porcelain. The outside is decorated with pure white gingko leaves, while the inside of the jar has a peach toned glaze that matches this apricot fragrance. The lid of the candle is made of raw Jura beech wood.  After you’ve enjoyed nearly fifty hours of candlelit fragrance, the jar has endless uses for its second life and is also food safe once washed. The core values of Le Jardin Retrouvé are in line with an eco-responsible approach. Natural components are prioritised where possible, as are efforts to limit waste by using recycled packaging and offering refill provision.

Osmanthe Liu Yuan Scented Stem

For an elegant, minimalist touch to your home, the scented stem presents a singular porcelain rose stem with remarkable scent diffusion power. Like the candles, the Scented Stem diffuser consists of a white Limoges pot decorated with a raised gingko leaf design. It has a beechwood lid and a porous porcelain fragrance stem to give your home a style that is as contemporary as it is chic.

As with the candle, the diffuser is both beautiful and functional and can be used for other purposes once empty. The box also includes a recycled and recyclable aluminium bottle, which contains the Osmanthe Liu Yuan fragrance. All these elements are stored in a box manufactured by a French company that has the FSC and imprim’vert labels, thus guaranteeing the reduction of its impact on the environment.

To use the Scented Stem, simply fill the jar with all of the fragrant liquid contained in the flask, then slide the wand through the hole in the lid. The irresistible fragrance will subtly bloom in your home, adding its sublime fragrance to the room. After about three months, when the diffuser is empty, simply soak the fragrance wand in a little household alcohol for a few hours, choose a new refill and repeat the process indefinitely: a lifelong artisanal keepsake.

Le Jardin Retrouvé offers you a backstage peek at the different scents that make up each of our Haute-Parfumerie fragrances. All our creations have a unique visual, which evokes a poetic universe, as well as illustrating all the olfactory notes present in each perfume…

The Hesperides

Citron Boboli

Cinnamon and galbanum add strength to these top notes and lead you down winding Florentine alleyways. You breathe in gentle wafts of spicy black pepper, clove and geranium. Renaissance statues meet your gaze, bringing their silent stories alive. You are caressed by breezes of warm vanilla and diaphanous musk as you explore the dazzling beauty of this exquisite city.

Verveine d’Été

A bed of greenery catches her eye, its scent soaring to the blue skies above. It is verbena, with its exquisite tang of lemon which stops her in her tracks. The uplifting zest of lemon meets sharp petitgrain and together they blend seamlessly into the lavender and basil, enhanced by the heat of the Provencal sun. A green accord of vetiver and moss grounds her as she savours the beauty of this moment.

The Florals

Jasmin Majorelle

You walk through the Majorelle Garden and are dazzled by the beauty of this iconic Marrakech garden. The perfection of the shimmering blue shade of the legendary house and the intense yellow of the sun takes your breath away when suddenly you come across a stranger. The trail he leaves in his wake leaves you speechless. Or maybe it’s just the wind blowing through the lush flora? This intoxicating fragrance has a name: Jasmin Majorelle. Coriander, lemon and sage blend invisibly into sensual notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang and neroli. White musk and iris sing the final act to this unforgettable aria.

Tubéreuse Trianon

Imagine a garden steeped in history and memory, a garden that once heard the footsteps and laughter of Marie Antoinette and her courtiers. You find yourself in the Trianon gardens at Versailles. The unique scent of tuberose sings to the sun and is joined by a chorus of garden rhubarb and petit grain. A firework of scent bursts from its heart: lily of the valley, jasmine, ylang-ylang, neroli and frangipani blossom. The evening air is still fresh on this beautiful spring day. The softest caresses of raspberry, coconut and balsams feel like a tender kiss on the back of your neck.

Rose Trocadéro

In this beautiful month of May, a woman dressed in elegant 1930’s style is savouring the voluptuous scent from the flowering trees in the Trocadero Garden.

A cocktail of floral sweetness makes the moment glow. Musk and honey emerge like sunbeams, adding the warmth of their embrace.

The Woody

Bois Tabac Virginia

You recognize the greenery of sage, the herbal scent of lavender and the lemon accent of geranium. As you continue your walk through the woods, you inhale the wholesome air and discover the aromatic notes of vetiver, cedarwood and cistus. Your quest takes you deeper, revealing waves of sandalwood, incense and patchouli and ambergris. The forest has left you forever touched by its mystical enchantments.

Sandalwood Sacré

 Let yourself be transported to India, in the silent heart of a grove of sacred trees.

Sandalwood Sacré has revealed its mysterious nature to you and you want it with you always.

Mousse Arashiyama

You walk through a silent bamboo forest on the banks of a Japanese river where the freshness of bergamot merges with drifts of incense from a distant temple. Mousse Arashiyama eau de parfum is your inner voice that leads you to meditation and tranquility. An aquatic nuance suggests a trickling stream, complemented by gourmand accords of sun-drenched fig. A feeling of purity and calmness overcomes you as the woody notes of this creation are quietly diffused into the stillness of the air. Oak moss, vetiver and cedar wood leave their footprints on the forest floor.

Cuir de Russie

The smoky scent of leather ballet shoes wafts towards you carried by the breathtaking music of Tchaikovsky. The dancers seems to fly and dart before your eyes. The zesty notes of lemon, petitgrain and bergamot light up your senses as they move. The orchestra plays sensual notes of violet, ylang-ylang and cedar wood as the movements slow to the rhythm of the music. The final act ends with pensive accords of labdanum and sandalwood. The earthy scent of vetiver, patchouli and oak moss adds final signature of beauty.

Oriental Sans Souci

A cocktail of oriental spices and exotic flowers are picked at the first dew of the morning. Oriental Sans Souci reveals its true nature through sublime notes of basil and rose, coupled with the tangy scents of bergamot and lemon. A bouquet of jasmine, ylang-ylang and neroli flowers makes the heart of the fragrance beat, warmed by the comfort of exquisite vanilla. You find yourself drifting into dreams of faraway lands, as the embrace of warm tonka and patchouli follow in your wake.

Osmanthe Liu Yuan

Osmanthe Liu Yuan is a subtle combination of fruity nuances and exotic accords that scents your home as a candle or as scented stem. Its scent is both comforting and familiar. Childhood memories revisit you with a sense of happy surprise. This is the scent of the kitchen as apricots and peaches are warmed on the stove.

How to choose a perfume?

Choosing one perfume over another is always a uniquely personal matter. There are seven major fragrance families in the world of perfumery, each with its own sub-families. If you are choosing your next Le Jardin Retrouvé fragrance in person, you may find a few tips useful.

First, make sure you are not too close to other people. The scents of the perfumes they are trying could mingle with yours and cloud your judgement.  Remember that after spraying several different fragrances, your sense of smell may become saturated or overwhelmed. You can remedy this by stepping outdoors for few minutes or smelling part of your skin that is unscented. The inside of your elbow is a good place to do this, for example.

If you decide to spray a fragrance directly on your skin, consider trying it on the inside of your wrists, which is a pulse point. The rhythm of your pulse, like your heartbeat, will warm and amplify the scent. Don’t make the common mistake of frantically rubbing them together. This will break down the olfactory molecules, altering the original fragrance. Finally, consider the structure of perfumes:

– the top notes are perceived from the first spray, but are more volatile;

– middle notes represent the personality of the fragrance, and are more long-lasting;

– the base notes are the most enduring and are therefore of great importance in choosing your perfume.

Is it possible to choose a perfume by proxy?

You could be forgiven that choosing a fragrance from a distance is difficult. Le Jardin Retrouvé has created ways of making this as easy as possible.

When it comes to perfume, looking at your old favourites can help you find a new one. Look at the notes in the Le Jardin Retrouvé collection of 11 fragrances and see where there’s a match. The perfect tool for this is Perfumist, which matches you to a Le Jardin Retrouvé fragrances when you type in a current or previous favourite. Just look for the little red icon in the right-hand corner of our website.

Our house of Haute-Parfumerie also offers you the opportunity of discovering our fragrances via our discovery sets, which correspond to each olfactory family. However, if you don’t know where to start, try the quiz, try Perfumist or even order the full set of 11 fragrances and try everything! This also applies if you are looking for a perfume to give to a friend or family member, but don’t know what they’d like best.

Le Jardin Retrouvé also welcomes personal correspondence and questions if you get stuck, or even if you’re just curious.

Why did we set up an olfactory quiz?

We know that choosing your perfect fragrance can be daunting. This is why Jardin Retrouvé set up the olfactory quiz to help you make your choice before placing your order. It helps you discover the scents and olfactory families that suit you best, thus avoiding a blind buy that doesn’t work for you.

This handy quiz can also be a great help when you want to give a fragrant gift to someone else and you want a perfect match. The quiz is quick and easy and only takes a few minutes to complete. All you have to do is answer five short questions that will mainly focus on your tastes and preferences, such as your favourite colour or the season of the year you prefer. You will also be asked about more emotional based elements, to help lead you towards your ideal match.

How to use the results

Once you have your quiz results, you will be one step closer to knowing your favourite genre of fragrance. You’ll receive a summary and our recommendations with a link to the Le Jardin Retrouvé website. For example, if your results reveal that you prefer light and refreshing scents, we might suggest Verveine d’Été, Citron Boboli or even our eau fraiche, Eau des Délices.

If the quiz reveals you to be a lover of florals, then we might match you to Tubéreuse Trianon, Rose Trocadero, and Jasmin Majorelle

Or perhaps you’ll discover that you are a spiritual soul with a deep connection to nature? You may find yourself directed towards our woody/leather fragrances: Sandalwood Sacré, Bois Tabac Virginia or our timeless flagship scent, Cuir de Russie.

What are the benefits of the scent quiz?

The Le Jardin Retrouvé quiz aims to match you with a scent you’ll love.
