The MIP's gardens and the League for the Protection of Birds

In the context of the partnership signed by the Pôle Azur Provence urban community with the League for the Protection of Birds (LPO), the International Perfume Museum’s Gardens are committed to a "Refuge LPO " approach so as to promote the wildlife on site. It is a commitment to using environmentally friendly techniques, practicing organic gardening (no phytosanitary products - no pesticides or synthetic fertilisers), cutting trees back outside of breeding season, promoting biodiversity by installing nest boxes, hibernation shelters, creating piles of wood, and favouring native plants. Through this approach, the MIP's Gardens have become a haven for birds, insects, small mammals and the associated flora.

In 2012, a biodiversity inventory was completed and birds, mammals, dragonflies, amphibians, reptiles and butterflies were identified on the site. As part of the development work on the Gardens, a pond was also created to allow everyone to watch the wildlife on the site.
