I must say first thing I've noticed about this brand was minimal and elegant appearance. The old fashion bottle with simple sticker and deep green colour which suggested respect for nature. I fell in love and started to investigate more...
THE BRAND & SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS
Company is based in Grasse, France. It’s part of Robertet SA. MarieJeanne was found by George Maubert. He is the fifth generation of the company Robertet, world leader in natural raw materials.
Sourcing focuses on sustainability and supply security of natural raw materials. They work with expert and passionate producers. Promotion of the use of natural materials for all the creations and assurance that none of the products or components have been tested on animals are very important aspects. MarieJeanne puts humans at the heart of production process. That’s why they chose to work with Robertet, a perfumery industry, which focus its work on environment and humans. Together, they reduce wastes, limit CO2 emissions through the atmosphere and manage water footprint. All of the perfume bottles are made in French workshops. They also enhance craftsmanship by working with glass blowers to make the glassware for the candles. Packaging is very unique, wooden, in order to remove plastic and unnecessary rubbish.
Grasse has had a prospering perfume industry since the end of the 18th century. Grasse is known as the world's perfume capital. Many "noses" are trained or have spent time in Grasse to distinguish over 2,000 kinds of scent. Grasse produces over two-thirds of France's natural aromas (for perfume and for food flavourings). Grasse's particular microclimate encouraged the flower farming industry. It is warm and sufficiently inland to be sheltered from the sea air. There is an abundance of water, thanks to its location in the hills and the 1860 construction of the canal for irrigation purposes. The town is 350m above the sea level and 20 km from the coast of Côte d'Azur. Jasmine, a key ingredient of many perfumes, was brought to southern France by the Moors in the 16th century. Twenty-seven tonnes of jasmine are now harvested in Grasse annually.
