Maison Louis Marie was founded on the principles of composing clean luxury fragrances while doing good for our planet. 1% of all proceeds from sales go to the National Forest Foundation.
Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium, playing in her grandfather’s nursery while making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s greenhouse. Years later, Maison Louis Marie was born: using the rich botanical history of her family as her inspiration and her guide, Marie has created luxury candles, perfumes, and skincare that focus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances. Made in harmony with the environment, Marie believes in making every effort to preserve the unique terroir of each fragrance element as it is derived from nature.
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.
La Themis was the name of the ship that carried Louis Marie back to France after 10 years in exile on Madagascar in 1802.

The Spearmint character is supported by a Wintergreen note. The fragrance dries down to a sweet Tonka bean accord.
