Le Jardin Retrouvé launches Scented Stem diffuser

For its fragrance diffuser Scented Stem, French niche brand Le Jardin Retrouvé opted for Limoges porcelain. Made using artisanal production processes, the diffusers can be refilled or repurposed.

Le Jardin Retrouvé wanted something different than the traditional materials - glass and rattan - for its fragrance diffuser, and one whose design would evoke a garden. The niche brand thus opted to combine porcelain and beech for Scented Stem, which represents a cut rose stem with its thorns and buds.

The jar and stem (Artoria) are in biscuit porcelain. A motif in the mold evokes Ginko leaves on the exterior of the jars, while the inside are hand glazed in a variety of colors. The lid (Froissard) is made using beech grown in France’s Jura region.

According to the brand, the porosity of the porcelain and the use of an alcohol-free solvent made using “green chemistry” allows for three months diffusion time with just 125ml of liquid, versus the typical 250ml required for ethanol-based fragrances using bamboo diffuser sticks. The fragrances come in recycled aluminum bottles (Embelia).  

The diffusers can be refilled or repurposed – in a tea set with the lid used as a saucer, for example, as the pots are dishwasher safe.

Scented Stem comes in a box (Cartonnages Bes) with removable insert, both made using FSC-certified paper.

The brand released Scented Stem with five scents, two of which are new: Mousse Arashiyame and Osmanthe Liu Yuan. Created by house perfumer Maxence Moutte, Mousse Arashiyama is inspired by the Arashiyama gardens in Kyoto, Japan, and combines oakmoss, jasmine and incense. Osmanthe Liu Yuan takes its cues from China’s Suzhou gardens and blends osmanthus, peach and leather.
