A sensual, royal and calming perfumed sensation

Through the centuries, the perfumers of the House of Houbigant have made groundbreaking discoveries in the formulation of perfumes that have revolutionized forever the way perfumes are constructed.

Shaping perfume history for centuries

It is not an exaggeration to say that, without the House of Houbigant, modern perfumery as we know it today would not exist. It all began with just a basket of flowers. Jean-Francois Houbigant, hung a hand painted sign of a basket of flowers over his little shop in rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. From the start his fragrances found favour with royalty and the nobility.

Perfumers of royalty

The late Lady Diana, Princess of Wales,  wore Quelques Fleurs L’Original on her Wedding Day, which was a special gift to her from the House of Houbigant. Queen Alexandra, wife of King Edward VII, began her purchases in 1902. Other royalty luminaries include; the King and Queen of Holland; the Queen of Italy; Princess Mathilde, sister of Napoleon; the Rothschilds and more.
