Jewels & Perfumes - Poem Stones
by Olivier DURBANO...

As a child, our family fields were already such a rare playground, unusual and magical, from May roses to Jasmine bushes, a few grapevines, and eventually
the little pebbles I gathered. Fields, bundles of flowers and vials too, orange blossom, violet, tuberose, mimosa ..

The Carillon de l'Oratoire

The carillon on Rue de l’Oratoire was installed in late summer 2012. 

It is comprised of twelve bells that chime every hour (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.), playing the celebrated Provençal anthem “Se Canto.” 

At noon, it puts on a three-minute “mini-concert” for spectators. For this musical interlude, the bells play another famous tune from Provençal culture, “Coupo Santo.”

Créations Boselli

Jean-Pierre Boselli, a native of Grasse, the son and grandson of perfume-plants producers, grew up in the world of flowers and fragrance, which naturally forged his ultimate artistic propensities.

Wood, a material second nature to him, was a way for him to combine his two passions, perfume and wood, following an inspiring television program on bottles.
