The Art of Toiletry
History of Roger & Gallet (France): In 1806, Jean-Marie Farina, the heir to the formula for Eau de Cologne, opened a perfumery business in rue Saint-Honore, Paris. He supplied the great courts of Europe. Napoleon was a wholehearted user and had a boot flask specially made for him to carry in his boot - the flask was called the "Rouleau de l'Empereur".
Today, Roger & Gallet fragrances include: Almond Blossom, Bamboo, Carnation, Extra Vieille / Jean Marie Farina, Fern, Gardenia, Ginger, Green Tea, Jean Marie Farina / Extra Vieille, Lavande Royale, Lettuce, Lily of the Valley, Linden Blossom, Magnolia, Oat Milk, Pink Grapefruit, Sandalwood, Tea Rose.
The Art of Roger et Gallet, Paris Toiletry: Roger & Gallet's Extra-Vieille Eau de Cologne is still made according to Jean-Marie Farina's original formula of natural citrus-fruit essences and aromatic plants. In 1862 the heirs to Maison Farina, Armand Roger and Charles Gallet, formed a partnership which sealed the company's future. They were to modernize the universe of perfumes and colognes.
Forerunners in modern cosmetics, Roger and Gallet invented the first beauty care and make-up products (face powder and lipsticks) and they gave a new meaning to the art of toiletry. In 1879, they created the first Roger et Gallet round bath soap, which was wrapped in the famous pleated paper and ring.
