To discover the secret charm of Caron by perusing its century-old history is to enter the sacred world of fragrance. Behind the creation of every fragrance lies a fascinating story and their symbolic names often evoke particular events within the world of luxury. In 1904, thanks to the genius of Ernest Daltroff, Caron established itself in the world of High Perfumery, opening its doors at 10 rue de la Paix, Paris. Ernest’s love for his colleague Félicie, was a constant and significant influence in his creations. Together, they created powerful concept fragrances such as “N’Aimez que Moi” in 1916, “Tabac Blond” in 1919, “Fleurs de Rocaille” in 1933 as well as the legendary “Pour Un Homme” in 1934. They also developed a manufacturing process for their “Poudre Libre”, the finest in the world today. The method remains a trade secret.
As an avant-garde brand, in harmony with art and fashion, inspired by the defining feats of the 20th century, Caron has been able to adapt to significant changes in lifestyle habits while staying true to its own tradition.
