Keyneston Mill is the creative home of Parterre Fragrances. Here you can explore the Scented Botanic Gardens and surrounding 50-acre working estate, where we grow, harvest and distil unusual plants and ingredients for our luxury perfumes.

For those who want to delve further into the world of fragrance, there are Scented Garden Tours, an open-air Perfume Exhibition, Fragrance Workshops, and regular Outdoor Cinema evenings. The Scented Botanist Bistro serves delicious lunches and a range of tasty picnics.*

*It is not necessary to purchase Garden Entry Tickets if you simply wish to enjoy a meal or drinks in The Scented Botanist Bistro.  Also, please note that all workshops, tours, cinema and wellness events include garden entry. 

The Collection Gardens have been inspired by architecture, garden design and paintings, from Renaissance Italy to contemporary artists.  Each compartment features plants from one of the principal perfume groups or “families”.

These gardens are planned not only to be colourful and wonderfully scented, but also to be practical trial beds where unusual varieties are cultivated. Research and experimentation are key elements of what we do.
