The same day at 11 am Meilland will baptize the Rosa Prince Jardinier in honor of Prince Louis-Albert de Broglie better known amongst perfumistas as the founder of Le Prince Jardinier.
The Rosa Prince Jardinier is described as offering a powerful perfume evocative of the May rose. It already won The Prix du Parfum at Buenos Aires in 2006.
These events and many others will take place at the annual Journées des Plantes de Courson, a popular plant fair drawing participants from all over Europe located on the grounds of the Château de Courson (1676) in Courson-Monteloup on the south-west outskirts of Paris.
