LA COLLECTION DE GRASSE from L’OCCITANE PERFUMER IN PROVENCE





THE SCHOOL OF GRASSE
THE TRUE STORY OF COLLECTION DE GRASSE
A PLACE THAT UNITES PRECIOUS INGREDIENTS FROM NEAR AND FAR

The story began quite by chance, with the creation of a pair of scented gloves. A guild of glove makes and perfumers emerged, prompting a development in the cultivation of fragrant plants from the Grasse region.
Local growers learned to cultivate jasmine, rose and orange blossom. The most adventurous perfumers headed to the Far Eat in search of magnolia, or to Madagascar, in search of vanilla. At the end of the 18th century, it wa san undeniable fact: Europe drew its essence from Grasse.
It is the world capital of perfumery. The greatest perfumers in the world learned their skills in the laboratories of Grasse.
