Les 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.
