Histoires de Parfums
An olfactive library that is telling stories about famous characters, raw materials and mythical years. The collection created by Gérald Ghislain is governed by no rules other than inspiration. With his luxuriant imagination, this loquacious individual has chosen to bring his stories to life in perfumes, a sensitive and sensual medium. Histoires de Parfums releases its fragrances in a Deluxe edition to be read on skin.

Histoires de Parfums’ perfumes perpetuate the French perfumery know-how, which features are luxury, nobility and creativity. Histoires de Parfums maintains the highest qualitative standards in the choice of the raw materials as well as in the choice of the bottles, packaging and communication tools. With this perfume library, Gerald Ghislain wanted to evoke stories through scent just as books are written with emotions.

The author
Gérald Ghislain wrote his own story with the frantic rhythm of a passionate jack of all trades. An epicurean, he tastes all of life’s savors, sprinkling his daily life with refined luxury. He gives his all to his projects. Insatiable wanderer, he listens, reads and discovers, drawing inspiration from his trips and encounters. Gerald is impulsive and fully committed to his projects. Perfumery is an old dream of his. Following a solid training at ISIPCA, Gerald founded Histoires de Parfums in 2000 and created a collection of twelve rare and delicate perfumes: these perfumes, like him, are rich in temperament and so, so romantic!

The Verb
The Histoires de Parfums language is eager and plural. Born in the South of France and brought up in Morocco, Gérald grew up surrounded by Mediterranean scents, and refined his palette and nose with gastronomy, learning the art of putting together and distilling savors. As with perfumery and cuisine, the key words of this creator are passion, know-how, exception and creativity. An eminently luxurious craftsman’s grammar, creating aromatic phrases of sharply accurate vocabulary, which enhances the noblest of raw materials.

Library of Scents
Spotless crepe paper, titles in color, bottles chiseled in glass: Histoires de Parfums is smartly bound in sixteen volumes to create a unique library. The eaux de parfums have a 15% concentration, which makes them long-lasting with a beautiful trail.
