La Manufacture Paris

Founded by Bruno Truchon Bartès, La Manufacture is a workshop without borders for artisan-artists who work with and transform their raw materials while taking inspiration from art, emotions and personal experience.

Les Colognes Essentielles originated in one man's story and in his unconditional love for the colognes, sparkling freshness and joyful perfumery.

It all started at a medieval keep, the Donjon de Moret in France, owned by a friend of Bruno's who gave him the idea of creating a "Cologne du Donjon" that would unite his twin passions for historic architecture and fragrances...

The quest has yielded strong fragrances, conceived with simplicity. Their streamlined architecture, based on raw materials selected with great discernment, like finely cut gemstones, is a pleasure to contemplate. Nothing extraneous clutters up the composition and each note matters.This simplicity demands perfection, which is the key to eliciting emotion. A joyful, private emotion, one that is quite.... Essentielle!
