Botanist Abderrazak Benchaâbane brought Yves Saint Laurent's famous Majorelle Garden back to life in the 1980s. Now living on a former farm just outside of Marrakesh, the botanist has curated his own spectacularly sensory garden. 'A garden reflects the soul of the person who created it' says Benchaâbane, if indeed this is true, he has given his own soul a beautiful self-portrait indeed.
