L'Artisan Parfumeur

L'Artisan Parfumeur

L’Artisan Parfumeur is the original ‘connoisseur’ fragrance house, founded in Paris in 1976 by Jean-Francois Laport, a perfumer with a singular artistic spirit.

Monsieur Laporte was a talented perfumer-chemist and sensory aesthete with a passion for the scents of nature. From his laboratory in L’Artisan Parfumeur’s first boutique on the rue de Grenelle, he dreamed and launched his first collection celebrating nature, childhood memories, favourite raw materials and the traditions of perfumery.

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.

Peony celebrates L’Artisans latest collection – ‘Natura Fabularis’ – an intimate journey through a garden dappled with sunlight and deep shadows.
