CARON PARIS PERFUMES
THE LEGEND OF CARON
In typical French fashion, is simply about men, women and that elusive thing called love.
Internationally recognized for its unique blends of pure essences encased in the most luxurious flacons, Parfums Caron offers 34 perfumes (including 13 exclusive Boutique fragrances) reaching both men and women alike.
Founded in 1904 by Ernest Daltroff, Parfums Caron has a rich heritage in perfumery and is still considered a true fragrance house, a distinction very few companies hold. Caron is one of the great Paris houses to still remain entirely devoted to fragrance and one of the last perfume houses to still have an in-house 'nose' (Monsieur Fraysse) - also called a master perfumer. It is the only perfume house that is perfume led, not fashion led.
In 1906, Mr Daltroff was joined by Felicie Vanpouille, a former dressmaker, who would mark her imprint on the company with her whimsical and original bottle design dressed with detailed attention, such as grosgrain and gold braiding.
Joined professionally and personally, their collaboration would create scents including Narcisse Noir (1911), Bellodgia (1927) and for men Pour Un Homme (1934).
In 1939, Mr Daltroff fled to America to escape persecution and Felicie officially took over the management of the company until her retirement at the age of 92 in 1962!
World famous Caron perfumes include Fleurs de Rocaille created in 1933 and Fleur de Rocaille recreated in 1993.
In 1998, Mr. Patrick Alès, chairman and owner of Alès Groupe (formerly known as Phyto-Lierac), purchased the venerable house, fulfilling a lifelong dream. His unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality cosmetics, ranging from hair care to skincare transcends today to fine fragrances.
