Inside The Brand
L’Artisan Parfumeur was the result of a challenge, a plaisanterie. Due to his training as a chemist, a friend asked Jean Laporte if he could create a banana scent to wear with a costume of the same fruit to a gala evening at the Folies Bergères. This was quickly followed by grapefruit and vanilla fragrances.
He experimented and created original scents with “natural essences”. With the success of his first line of fragrances, Jean Laporte was named L’Artisan Parfumeur – the craftsman of fragrance – by perfume enthusiasts.

L’Artisan Parfumeur’s classic fragrances remain unchanged throughout its 40-year history. A true mark of confidence in its alchemy, the perfumes are as modern today as they ever were.
Made with passion and artisanal finesse to symbolise a different olfactory journey, each fragrance carries with it creative freedom and artistic flair: the hallmark of its master perfumer.
In homage to its founding philosophy, the fragrances take you on a journey of exploration, one that fuses the careful craft of man with the beauty of nature. As experts of their craft, each of our master perfumers understands the harmony and structure of their chosen notes, notes that shift and flow subtly as the fragrance unfolds on the skin.
Bringing to mind all the mystery and allure of an apothecary den, L’Artisan Parfumeur’s bottle is resplendent in dark, smoky glass.
Each elegant bottle carries the brand’s stamped emblem, a silent insignia of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s dedicated craftsmanship and genuine authenticity.
The bottle’s signature heavy cap and iconic heptagonal shape remain, not simply as an ode to understated modernity but as the brand’s distinctive seal, reaching back into its past and striding forth into its future.
A simple and understated space that reveres a deep intuitive connection to nature: the stores of L’Artisan Parfumeur embraces this concept with a contemporary eye to achieve a modern vision.
From the moment the threshold is crossed, you are transported into a world of L’Artisan Parfumeur heritage, style and perfume mastery; a place where the botanical richness of miniature gardens echoes the venerated rhythms of nature, present at the heart of the brand.
