Rose Desgranges | A love story told with perfume


At the back of a superb courtyard, the Rose Desgranges perfume shop should be discovered with delicacy, just like the beautiful love story that hides behind this bottle of perfume.

A love story

To understand Rose Desgranges perfume, you need to go back in time to the 1940s, when the young Rose had to go to work to support her family during the war. She joined the Figaro Club, a famous hair salon that belonged to Albert Meyer who fell madly in love with her and married her. After the war, Rose turned the salon’s storeroom into a stand from which she sold hair accessories and beauty products. It is the same little shop in the listed interior courtyard that we are surprised to discover today when we go under the porch. As for the perfume, it was created in 1958 when Albert preferred to give his love a tailor-made perfume rather than a piece of jewellery. Thanks to his training as a chemist, he created a fragrance that he dedicated to his wife – feminine, elegant and sensual. Rose kept the perfume for herself until 1961 when she transformed her stall into a setting for her perfume.

A family affair

In 2013, the daughter and grand-daughter of Rose Desgranges decided to reintroduce this forgotten perfume that was an echo of their childhood. The formula had been preciously guarded and was given to the perfumer Benoist Lapouza in order to retain its original structure while adapting to modern constraints. Notes of rose buds, bergamot and mandarin, notes of ambrette, jasmine and iris and underneath it all, lower notes of vanilla, musk, patchouli and oak moss, the Rose Desgranges perfume has been reborn in its prestigious original setting at 70 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. The face of the perfume is Laura-Rose Presgurvic, Rose’s grand-daughter, of course. And Rose’s daughter Patricia Meyer will welcome you to the shop and happily tell you the family history.

The perfume is available in 3 sizes with prices starting from 79 euros.
