Many people know and love the brand founded by the foremost French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. However, do you know what the famous designer loved?

Jardin Majorelle was a garden designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle, who devoted himself to it for almost 40 years. The garden was abandoned after his death and was purchased by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1980s. Saint Laurent refurbished the garden and was fascinated by the beauty of it. It then became his favourite place of all time. After Yves Saint Laurent died in 2008, his ashes were scattered in the Jardin Majorelle, making himself a part of the garden under the North African sun.

The garden is painted in vibrant colours, dominated by Majorelle Blue. It is also filled with beautiful plants such as bamboos and tropical plants. Besides appreciating the plants and architecture, you can also take a break in the bookstore, café or souvenir store. If you have ample time, the Yves Saint Laurent Museum nearby worth a visit. It is where you can admire the masterpieces of this great artist and designer.
