Louis Marie Aubert Du Petit Thouars was a pioneer in French botanical history. During the French revolution, he was exiled to Madagascar, Réunion and the Mauritius islands where he discovered a vast array of plant specimens. Ten years later and bearing a collection of over twothousand plants Louis Marie was finally able to return to France wherehe was elected a member of the prestigious Académie des Sciences.
Two hundred years later…
As a young girl, Marie Du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s green house. With the creation of Maison Louis Marie, she has built upon the rich botanical history of her family with luxury candles and perfumes thatfocus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances.

Light your candle 2 hours the first time, you will get an even burn. To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 3 hours at a time. Before each burn trim the wick to less than 1/4 of an inch, you will avoid any black smoke and residue on the glass. Always remove wick debris and keep burning the wick in the middle of the container. If the wick requires centering, gently readjust it to the center when the candle is unlit and the wax is still molten, allow the candle to solidify before relighting.
Burn on a flat, stable fireproof surface.
