FRENCH SAVOIR-FAIRE IN A DIFFERENT, UNCONVENTIONAL WAY
L'Artisan Parfumeur was born in Paris in 1976, imagined by Jean Laporte. Monsieur Laporte, chemist and perfumer, imagined what would be later acknowledged as the first "niche brand". His main inspiration was an homage to nature, in all its facets and variations. He also imagined perfumery in a different, unconventional way. Monsieur Laporte viewed his work as a curator of fragrances, he was the first to shed the light on perfumers rather than himself.
He also viewed perfumery as a form of poetic creation, mingling with art references. Obsessed by the quality of raw materials as well as unexacting collaborations, L'Artisan Parfumeur established a collection of fragrances with milestones such as Mûre et Musc in 1978, La Chasse aux Papillons or Timbuktu.
