A botanical tradition since 1792.
Maison Louis Marie is the result of a long, storied family history with scent, beginning with Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars: a pioneer in French botanical history, he was exiled to Madagascar, La Reunion and the Mauritius islands during the French revolution. There, he discovered a vast array of plant specimens, collecting over 2000 to bring back to France ten years later. Home again at last, he was elected a member of the prestigious Académie des Sciences.
Our commitments to clean beauty & the environment
To us, 'clean beauty' means we have a strict adherence to providing environmentally-mindful products that do not contain toxic ingredients (whether they're harvested or manufactured) that may pollute the earth or harm one's body.
We don't test our products on animals and we never utilize animal-derived ingredients. We always strike a careful balance between utilizing synthetic and natural ingredients. We only use synthetic ingredients in order to protect the planet from the over-harvesting of endangered plants, to avoid animal products, and to protect against known natural allergens.
We use 100% recycled fiberboard and FSC certified paper in all of our gift boxes. We don't use any toxic coating on our papers and we utilize soy ink and avoid using shiny foils or other toxic ink treatments that ensures that our boxes are 100% recyclable. We do our best to limit plastic consumption wherever possible in our products. We use glass bottles for our Eau de Parfums, Perfume Oils and Candles and never use cello wrapping on any of our products.
1% FOR THE PLANET
Maison Louis Marie was founded on the principles of composing clean luxury fragrances while doing good for our planet. We joined 1% for the Planet because we believe the world needs us now more than ever—it's time to take responsibility. 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. They advise on giving strategies, certify donations, and amplify the impact of the network. This pledge means that we will be donating 1% of our revenues towards environmental causes.
Moving forward, our first partner will be the National Forest Foundation who works closely with the US Forest Service to address the pressing needs of our forests by planting native trees in areas that are desperately in need. Through our contributions we will be planting thousands of native trees on a monthly basis. Reforestation efforts directly impact the decrease of carbon in our atmosphere, forest health & resiliency, watershed health and the protection of the habitats of thousands of species that depend on the National forest habitats.
