Les Jardins d’Armide are a symbol of beauty, lush and beautiful, full of fragrant flowers and the rarest species. The beautiful gardens were long mythical, but the success of the Renaissance myth of Armida gave these imaginary incomparable gardens a new impetus. The Great Century in France did not escape the attraction of myths. There was a genuine passion for symbolism, illusions, and enchantments. Armide, an emblematic seventeenth century witch, was a woman of great beauty who knew the art of seduction. She best embodies the ambivalent powers of charm. She is inextricably tied to these extraordinary gardens, so much so that the term “Gardens of Armida” became a reference in fashion during the subsequent centuries. Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Gardens of Armida are incessantly referred to in music (Lully, Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn, Rossini …), painting (Poussin, Van Dyck, Tiepolo, Fragonard …) and literature. This myth began with another one, the myth of Tasso in the sixteenth century. In 1909, the prestigious Maison de Parfums Oriza L. Legrand presented?Jardins d’Aramide?? to its elegant clientele, le tout-Paris, in its prestigious boutique 11 Place de la Madeleine.
