Notre Actualité


We’re always excited to tell you about new locations where you can find Le Jardin Retrouvé range, but this one really is very special to us. We met in Esxence and immediately realised how much we had in common. As a result, we entered into a partnership with Explora Journeys, which means that customers can now enjoy our exclusive scented wellness by the sea.

The environment at heart

Explora Journeys is a new generation of ships, belonging to MSC, that has the environment at its heart, and this is why we’re so excited to be a part of their journey. They have pushed the limits of their eco-credentials to include provision for battery storage onboard, catalytic reduction technology that cuts nitrogen oxide emissions by 90%, and a complete ban on single-use plastics.

What is the Rina Dolphin Certification?

They’ve also taken this one step further though by being Rina Dolphin Certified. What does this mean? Ships moving through the ocean create noise which can disturb marine mammals, so new ambient noise limits have been introduced that aim to reduce it by 10 decibels by 2029. We are passionate about caring for our planet at Le Jardin Retrouvé, and that includes the oceans.

The new luxury? Niche perfume brands!

You’ll find our products onboard alongside the likes of Rolex and Cartier, and only 6 other Niche Perfume brands, so it’s clear confirmation of the perceived quality of our products by a powerful player in the luxury cruise realm. We’re excited to see what the future holds for our partnership with Explora Journeys, and do get in touch if you’ve had the chance to enjoy one of their five luxurious routes.

We’re very proud to have professional support all around the world, and we’d like to celebrate some of these heart-warming connections. Amanda Carr is a perfume writer and trend forecaster based in the UK, and we were excited to see her again at the Fortnum & Mason launch in November 2023. Amanda wrote a beautiful review of Osmanthe Liu Yuan (read it here), and so we wanted to learn a little more about her fragrant journey.

How did you discover Le Jardin Retrouvé?

My first brush with Le Jardin Retrouvé was at Esxence, in Milan, (I think 2019) where its gorgeously fresh and decorative stand shone out from the sea of black, gold and chrome on offer elsewhere. The charming illustrations and product innovation – the porcelain room diffusers, refillable bottles at a time when hardly anyone else was doing them, the decorated keep-me-forever blotters, not to mention the delicious and modern fragrance profiles, all felt really exciting to me.

What do you love about the brand?

I’m a gardener, and so I guess I was hooked by the connection to real flowers and plants and the concern for nature. I love the ingredient references that Clara and Michel use, Osmanthe Liu Yuan, for example, is inspired by the ‘Lingering’ Garden in Suzhou, China, somewhere I’d never heard of but now I’m connected to it because I wear the scent regularly, I feel like I’m travelling via botanicals. The scents are also so easy-breezy, they are like the best of friends, you can take them anywhere and they fit in beautifully.

What does the future have in store?

On May 18th 2024 I’ll be holding the second Barnes Fragrance Fair (@barnesfragrancefair ). Last year we launched a wonderful, immersive environment where visitors discovered the joyful world of independent perfumery. We featured workshops and talks about how fragrance is made and its wellbeing benefits as well as offering the chance to meet the perfumers and brand founders and discover their beautiful scents. Fragrance is so much more than a ‘beauty hall product’ and hopefully the Fair demonstrates how exciting the possibilities are of finding a fragrance you love.
