Story

This wild rosemary, which grows in the scrubland of Languedoc Roussillon, reveals a powerful perfume with camphor notes.
Native to the Mediterranean coast, rosemary is a shrub with blue flowers. Its Latin name 'rosmarinus officilanis' evokes the morning dew or still the dew of the sea according to the poets.
In Antiquity, this plant is considered sacred and participates in many rituals, both emblem of love and of memory. Rosemary is a medicinal plant cultivated in the gardens of abbeys and monasteries in the Middle Ages. Gradually, its fragrant foliage seduces the kitchens and the herb is found on tables all over Europe.
