Caron Perfume is a French perfume legend. Founded by Ernest Daltroff in 1904, with nothing but the love of perfume his mother had passed on to him, he created a perfume brand powerhouse that continues strong today, launching the exquisite L’Accord 119 in 2012.
After hiring Felicie Wanpouille to be his artistic advisor, she became his muse. Pining for Felicie for years, it is believed he never told her how he felt about her.
Narcisse Noir, immortalized in “Sunset Boulevard” by Gloria Swanson, is dark and smoky, the perfect femme fatale scent. N’Aimez Que Moi (“Love No One But Me”) is rumored to be the un-uttered expression of love from Ernest to Felicie. Tabac Blond is tobacco perfection.
Daltroff, who was Jewish, fled to America during World War II, Caron left in Wanpouille’s hands. Daltroff died in 1947 without ever returning to Europe. Wanpouille died in 1967. Patrick Ales purchased Caron in 1998.
From the high end urn pure parfums to the accessible and stunning Parfum Sacre and masculine Yatagan, the House of Caron has some of the most beautiful, varied and historically interesting perfumes in existence.
Try a Caron perfume sample of Caron L’Accord 119 (one of their most recent creations) Caron Nuit de Noel (Christmas Eve), Caron Yatagan (great scent for men or women) or Caron Parfum Sacre to get an idea of what this line has to offer.
