L'Artisan Parfumeur was born as a result of a challenge. Jean Laporte was a trained chemist.

He did so, and followed up with grapefruit and vanilla fragrances thereafter.
Laporte experimented with creating original scents from "natural essences." After a successful launch of his first collection of fragrances, Jean Laporte was named L'Artisan Parfumeur - the craftsman of fragrance - by perfume enthusiasts. Et voilà!
