Company history

about the company

celebrating our 25 years in business

We sell wholesale to retail stores distributors and have now a location in Richmond for cash and carry and pick-up orders


  •  1997:
    • Taste Of Provence Importing was created
    • We started to import lavender and other natural raw material directly from growers in the south of France to the rest of the world. we imported essential oil of lavender, lavender flowers and sachets, and many other oils from France. We started selling  wholesale to retail stores and manufacturers
  • 2006:
    • The company was restructured to separate the botanical products from the fabrics. Hence: T.O.P.I  IMPORTS was created for our fabrics.
  • 2013
    • we started importing from different countries in the world and we encourage small communities and local growers.
  • 2016
    • Les Jardins De Jaqueline was created
    • Named in honor of my grandmother the second name my father wanted me to have
    •  Les Jardins De Jaqueline showcases our finished gifts and botanical products
    • To clear some confusion, Taste Of of Provence Importing has an initial of T.O.P.I import and for our other business T.O.P. I IMPORTS for the textile owner by the same owner.
    • We encourage fair trade and small coops around the world
  •   2018
  • Le Relais de Jacqueline was created
  • As of 2018,    we are able to ship directly from on dropship with the extension of Les Jardins De Jaqueline France from Viviane Heritage farm.

never give up on your dream :

  •              a true family story where my father wanted me to take over the farm over 20 years ago. It is now a reality but a big challenge is still waiting for me to rebuild  the farm from Top to the bottom
  •            all the years I work hard to rebuild the farm of my ancestor now i have the   license and the property in France it is now time to get into the renovation and  plan the plantation with no more delay
  • a few more delays on the renovation because of the situation but never mind it is only for a few more months before i renovate my properties in France
  • a 50 acres farm with over 10000square feet of building to renovate
  • it took me over 7years to plan the renovation and i really  believe this year i will get this renovation and plantation of the garden thanks to y team that are willing to work hard to make it happen
