Parfums de Rosine was founded by Paul Poiret in 1911. He named the fragrance house after his own daughter. Fragrances of the house enjoyed great popularity, but it didn't survive the Great Depression.
Marie-Hélène Rogeon has revived the house in 1991.
Marie-Hélène was born into a family of perfumer, her great-grandparent worked with Paul Poiret. Her fascination with perfumes and perfume bottles started when she was a young girl.
At some point in her life she realized the importance of perfumes in her life and, tired of mainstream and designer offerings, Marie-Hélène decided to re-open the house Les Parfums de Rosine in order to create original, unique and beautiful compositions made from natural essences.
Her creations, which include perfumes, perfumed soaps and body creams and candles, center around the scent of roses. The rose scents she composes are never boring as, even after many years, the fragrant qualities of a rose still have the ability for surprise and fascinate her, Marie-Hélène says.
Her customers that she feels close to are people who look for original scents without being influenced by the ever-changing fashion trends.
Marie-Hélène values not only natural ingredients and the fragrant creations. She focuses on beautiful and appealing packaging as well.
Her first creation was Rose d'Eté from 1998. The floral and fruity fragrance is based on a strong rose and refreshing nuances of green apples.
Un Zeste de Rose, a floral composition with prominent notes of Italien amalfi lemon, was presented in 2002.
