My favorite Garden.

L’Occitane: A Perfumer’s Garden in Grasse has just been awarded a Gold Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The garden was created by award winning garden designer James Basson, and is intended to evoke the sights and sounds of Grasse, often referred to as the perfume capital of the world.

With careful plant choices and of course breath-taking scents, James brings to life the Provencal hillsides.

Plants such as Osmanthus, Iris, Bergamot, Lavender, Thyme, Fig, and Rosemary, all of which feature heavily in the L’Occitane La Collection de Grasse fragrance collection.
