Our History


The house of Maître Parfumeur et Gantier was founded in 1988 by the famous perfumer Jean-François Laporte. Rooted in the French perfumery tradition of the 17th century, the brand draws inspiration from travels, the world of opera and baroque aesthetics.

Linking heritage and modernity, Maître Parfumeur et Gantier is distinguished by its audacious and rare blends breathing new life into the art of perfumery. Through a handcrafted look and a rigorous selection of the finest raw materials, this Parisian brand offers the guarantee of refined and luxurious fragrance ranges.

Whether personal or ambience, each fragrance leaves a unique and thrilling olfactory signature.


 The Case

The Eaux de Parfums come in an exquisite glass bottle with beveled edges. The seal of Maître Parfumeur et Gantier is printed in gold on a fine layer of enamel.

Each bottle has a gilded cap adorned with a diamond-like Swarovski stone. Like precious jewels, fragrances are presented in red cases coated with leather grain paper, a reference to the origins of Gantier, as French glove makers (gantiers) used to scent their gloves.

 The Boutique

A short walk from the Place Vendome, this Parisian boutique recreates the special atmosphere of the perfume shops of the 17th century. A shiny marble floor, walls covered with Cuir de Cordoue and a trompe l’oeil ceiling create a sophisticated ambience; a warm setting that perfectly matches the refined style of the perfumes.
