A little history
Rose 1

In 1862, the catalogue of perfume house Jean Marie Farina was bought by Armand Roger and Charles Gallet.

In 1875, Roger & Gallet launched Jean Marie Farina Extra-Vieille, meaning Extra Old. This signature scent is now regarded as R&G's most famous scent and for me will forever be associated with Paris.

Throughout the Art Nouveau movement, Roger & Gallet engaged help from some of the major players in Art Nouveau perfume creation. Vera Violette (1895), Pâquerettes (1908), Cigalia (1910), Psyka (1914), Narkiss (1920) and Le Jade (1923) are all considered to be some of the finest examples of Art Nouveau perfume creations.

In 1932, Roger & Gallet moved to Foubourg Saint Honore where it started collaborating with extraordinary animators to decorate it's shop windows with magnificent creations and thus became a gathering spot for Paris glitterati. The company also hired some of the finest Art Deco artists to decorate it's product packaging.

Throughout the years, Roger & Gallet carried on evolving with the times in terms of packaging and making the products relevant and slowly expanded it's catalogue of fragrances to reflect tastes.

As of 2013, there are currently 22/23 collections.

The soap
Rose 2

The company made a name for itself with its luxurious bath soaps, which in 1879 first appeared in their signature round shape, with the crinkled silk paper and seal which are still in use today.

Olfactive notes

At the top,
the natural and radiant freshness of the Nepalese rose, exhaled by sparkling mandarin and the transparence of a white floral.

At the heart,
the deliciously intense exuberance of a combination of rose and peony, accentuated by the green of a rosebud.

Deep down,
the mysteries of amber, the velvet of almond milk.
