However, Pierre Poivre, a predestined name, was the genuine and passionate creator.
When this botanist and explorer, once a seminarist, visited Ile de France, he turned out to be a real "missionary of spices". Unfortunately, Fusée-Aublet, a jealous horticulturist, sabotaged his cultures whenever Poivre was not looking! Even though Poivre returned to France, disillusioned from the experience, he did not admit defeat nonetheless, as a great determination characterised this man who has seen worse. As a matter of fact, he came back some ten years later, in 1767, but this time, as the administrator of Bourbon Island (Réunion) and Ile de France. Pierre Poivre was a one-armed person (during a naval battle, a cannonball tore away his wrist and he had to undergo an amputation), but his skill, his knowledge, his tenacity and his experience helped him to overcome all obstacles. He introduced numerous trees and spices from all over the world in the Pamplemousses garden, whose names invited us on a worldwide tour: the Caribbean's laurel, China's camphor tree, the Philippines bread-root, or Cochin-China's litchi... as well as many indigenous species as possible. Pierre Poivre, a noble and kind gentleman - besides, he was also against the ignominy of slavery - will be the originator of the first laws on the protection of nature. Together with his wife and daughters, he lived in the residence at Mon Plaisir (now destroyed, but substituted for an equally beautiful building, pompously named as "Château de Mon Plaisir") till he decided to return in France, in Lyon, where he died in 1786. He was then sixty-seven years old. His successor, Nicolas Céré, a botanist, tried his best to go on with the works of Pierre Poivre.

Poivre is a young man having a keen sense for adventure and he wants to ban the Dutch monopoly on the spices market. He has decided to import the spices in the French colonies. Consequently, he landed on the island with trunks full of seeds and shrubs that scented the holds of his ship! He had chosen them with great care during his voyages, or at times, the plants were cleverly absconded at his own risk. As such, nutmeg trees, clove trees, and pepper plants will gradually adapt to the climate prevailing at "Jardin de Mon Plaisir".
