    Thanks to an innovative, top-secret process developed with a perfumer in Grasse, Serei Nod Nengone produces an organic sandalwood essence that has won over the biggest names in perfumery and cosmetics. The Takone site welcomes you to the heart of its "aromatic and organic cosmetics" business in the Loyalty Islands. From planting to extraction, we invite you on an enchanting stroll through the history and fragrances of Maré sandalwood. We'll explain the main stages in the production of sandalwood essence and essential oil.

    Visit the gardens, vegetable gardens of useful plants, the first fields of avocados in Maré (Year 80) and the plantations of sandalwood trees.

    The site's vists are organized for cruise passengers at the arrival of each boat. The Takone company has its own bus (24 seats) fitted out for this purpose (graphic charter, English-speaking driver).
