Our Values & Our Commitments

Plantes & Parfums is the story of a passionate team, in the heart of the Provence region, stretching back more than 30 years. At the foot of villages, perched amongst the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains, we have been patiently developing our products, before manufacturing them, by hand, in our own workshops.
The beauty of the surrounding nature, the light and the fragrances, which changes with the seasons, are the inspirations for our work. Through our collections, designed to awaken the senses, we are hoping to reproduce this intimate relationship with nature thus making our contribution to an art of living, founded upon pleasure and well-being.

“Existence is a fact, but living is an Art form”, Frédéric Lenoir.
The commitments we, within Plantes & Parfums, have made, are a reflection of our own needs and our own philosophy of life. Respecting a set of deeply rooted values :

– The nature of our raw materials and formulae: 100% natural plant-based waxes, natural components and perfumes, a total ban on all petro-chemical based products.
– Traditional manufacturing techniques and processes, preserving our authentic skills, which, in turn, are a mark of our quality.
– Our social sense of responsibility: the creation of partnerships with local producers and the implementation of a stringent sustainable development policy.
– Our ethics: none of our products are tested on animals.

A quality mafufacturing method, respecting traditions

Our candles are manufactured using traditional methods. Each candle has its own unique character.

The waxes we use in our candles are 100% plant-based and rigorously selected for the quality of their combustion and diffusion.
Our waxes are heated, mixed then blended with “de Grasse” perfumes. The pouring and wick insertion processes are carried out manually, one
candle at a time.The finishing work is all completed by hand.

The virtues of our natural, perfumed candles

The plant-based wax is a noble and natural ingredient. This guarantees complete combustion with the perfume being diffused,
free of soot and smoke. In addition, our plant-based wax is a marvellous vector for diffusion.
Revealing precisely the full range of notes of any fragrance. Our candles are scented with natural perfumes, delicate in nature
and precisely blended. They provide a warm, refined ambience.


Master Perfumers Knowledges

Exclusive and natural fragrances created by our Master Perfumers

All our fragrances have been created and produced in collaboration with the Master Perfumers working with Grasse Perfumes.

Nature, in all its richness, is the basis for our inspiration: the fragrances of plants, flowers and natural extracts are blended into complex, refined and
natural perfumes.

Creators of natural cosmetics

Our fragrances freely diffuse natural, olfactory emotions.

This continues into our cosmetics line, subtly perfumed with silky textures, awaking the senses.
Each of them is designed to provide moments of well-being, to create a deep sensation of softness and harmony with nature.
