Which country comes to mind when you think of perfume? If you answered France, then you’ll be in the company of thousands of others. From the vast lavender and jasmine fields of Grasse to the historic streets and boutiques of Paris, only one country is the spiritual home of perfumery. Le Jardin Retrouvé pride themselves on being authentically French in every way possible. From their base in Paris, to their Limoges candle and diffuser holders, they are as French as French can be. The reasons?
💙To remain faithful to our roots: we are a French fragrance brand
❤France is THE country of fragrances
💙To support independent artisans and craftsmanship.
❤Because it’s environmentally friendly to shop “local”.

Discover France through our collections…
The founder of Le Jardin Retrouvé, Yuri Gutsatz, began the first niche perfume house at his home in Paris. On a street named after a flower, Cour Jasmin, he and his wife Arlette raised three boys and a business, with a perfume lab in the house.
Yuri used the classic French haute-parfumerie ethos, with high quality ingredients sourced from his own choice of trusted suppliers across the world. Eaux de parfums macerated and matured for up to six weeks, not a drop was rushed or hurried. Original containers from many suppliers from Grasse are still held in the Le Jardin Retrouvé archives. Each bottle was designed by Arlette and hand poured by the perfumer himself.
The Return of Le Jardin Retrouvé
Yuri and Arlette’s last surviving son, Michel, and his wife Clara Feder took over the helm in 2016 and knew immediately that the roots of Le Jardin Retrouvé should remain French. Perfumer Maxence Moutte, raised in Provence, came on board. The new perfumes were made in Paris to old methods and from old formulas, but with modern safety compliances firmly in place.

Michel and Clara
In a stroke of serendipity, Michel and Clara were both schooled less than half a mile away from each other in Paris, not knowing that one day the two of them would be reviving the world’s first niche perfume brand, right here in their home city, just streets away from the birthplace of Guerlain, Dior and Chanel.
