    I was just reading here (bottom of the article) that Patou keeps its own rose and jasmine fields in Grasse.

    My both boxes of DelRae say "Grasse -- San Francisco".

    L'Occitane's Eau des 7 Fleurs, which unfortunately has been discontinued, contained floral ingredients from Grasse.

    You could look into their new fragrances.

    L'Aromarine (can be purchaced at Hampton Court) gets their essences from Grasse, I just learned. I HAVE some L'Aromarine from years ago-the Espices. I have seen them in little specilty/gift shoppes all over the US and never knew!

    While searching for a new tuberose or violet love, I found, on Luckyscent, Calypso Christiane Celle's perfumes are made in Grasse. The tuberose in Miller Harris Noix~ is as well.
