The blooming of Dans un Jardin

Dans un Jardin was founded in Paris, in the spring of 1976, by the Countess Lucile de Baudry D’Asson. It is the story of a wish fulfilment, a desire to create essential products inspired by the virtues and scents of nature. The beginnings of the company had, as purpose, to create bath products with blossom and fruits essences, presented in beautiful old-style glass bottles. Success has been achieved and people who discovered the brand Dans un Jardin were captivated by the delicate fragrances. Following this craze, the Countess opened nearly a hundred retail stores around the world.

Dans un Jardin in Quebec

In Quebec, more specifically in 1983, Dans un Jardin made a striking entrance with the opening of its five lovely shops thanks to the former mayor of Montreal, Gérald Tremblay, and his wife Suzanne Tailleur. As a matter of fact, customers were even wandering through the shelves to permeate the fragrances created by the Countess.

In the 1990s, Dans un Jardin, which was initially intended for women, expanded its horizons and increased its bath product range by being more original and by standing out more. Dans un Jardin now offers a variety of products for the whole family. Sweet Peas was conceived to be specifically designated for mothers and babies. This product range was an outstanding success and became the star range of products of Dans un Jardin. It is part of today’s Quebec culture.

Dans un Jardin: a local business

In the purpose of staying as close as possible to its convictions, all of the Dans un Jardin’s products were created and formulated at Boucherville in Quebec. They were all made in the research and development center of the manufacturing company.

The research and development team gets its inspiration from the nature which has unexpected treasures. They venture into the heart of the local botany to create innovative quality products.

J’ai travaillé 10 ans à la boutique Dans un Jardin de Pincourt avec Carol dans les années ‘90. De Fleur de pommier à Eau Féline, d’Herbe mousse à Citron-Vanille, en passant par les vitrines thématiques, les sacs cadeaux et surtout le merveilleux carrousel de Noël, ce que j’aimais le plus c’était la magie qui était toujours au rendez-vous. Même la musique était soigneusement choisie pour que l’expérience DUJ soit multisensorielle. Nous étions une belle famille… Belle nostalgie… et longue vie à DUJ!
