Let us run to Puteaux, by the Seine, right outside Paris in Hauts-de-Seine to discover the Parc Lebaudy and its fabulous free rose garden open to all. This gorgeous park gathers about 1,600 rose bushes and 200 kinds of roses in a French formal garden.

Set right outside Paris, the Parc Lebaudy is a listed site set on the Île de Puteaux, behind the aquatic center. Covering 2km and shared between the cities of Puteaux and Neuilly-sur-Seine), this park is the biggest one in the city as it covers 33,200sqm of greenery.

For your information, in 1942, Madame Lebaudy – widow to a sugar industrial – donates her lands on the Île de Puteaux to the city. And it was normal the parc was named after her in the 1980’s.

In this verdant space hides a sublime rose garden reminding us rose growing – like vine growing – used to be a major business in the late 18th century and all the 19th century long in Puteaux. Did you know the rose known as “Rosa damascena officinalis” or the perfumers’ rose is also known as “Rose de Puteaux” as it was grown in the city?

We must say this rose, variety of the Damascus rose, was very coveted for its curing properties and smell. It was sold to pharmacists and perfumers. Perfume industry-related factories settled in Puteaux: the Parfums Coty on the Île, the Parfums d’Orsay and Houbigant in rue des Bouvets, the Parfums Bienaimé rue Félix-Piat or Caron rue de la République.
