The birth of a friendship, the origin of a project
The story of the current Maison Violet brand begins at the prestigious perfume school Ecole Supérieure du Parfum in Paris. Having just finished their perfumery training, three friends decided to start a perfume brand together. The discovery of vintage perfume bottles from the 190-year-old perfume brand Maison Violet started this adventure for Anthony Toulemonde, Paul Richardot, and Victorien Sirot. In addition to their perfume training, they all have their own expertise and with this strong team, they brought Maison Violet back to life.
Together with top perfumer Natalie Lorson, they reformulated five scents, inspired by the brand's classics. This resulted in a line of timeless perfumes with a classical scheme while remaining modern.
In this way, they intertwine the rich heritage of this brand from 1827 with the present.
Maison Violet was founded in 1827 by Mr. Violet. The brand won international fame, had several patents and received multiple awards at the world exhibitions in Paris until it was sunk into a long sleep in 1953.
