Aux Anysetiers du Roy was initially just a cute little restaurant located in the old Paris quarter, L'Ile Saint-Louis, near Notre-Dame. The restaurant specialized in Provençal cuisine using olive oil and aromatic herbs. After dinner, each guest would receive a small gift: a pot containing a special blends of Herbs de Provence prepared by Louis Lombard, the first to include lavender flowers in the aromatic herbs.

That little crock was a huge success and quickly became popular which gave the company the idea to produce and commercialize a unique line of specialty items packed in clay and stoneware pots. The company creates their own recipes and packs each jar by hand, ensuring the quality of each individual product.
