Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
By Jean–Francois Laporte, actual founder of Artistic Perfumery
The fragrance house Maître Parfumeur et Gantier was founded in 1988 by influential French perfumer Jean-Francois Laporte. The passionate olfactory artist passed away in 2011, but his brand lives on, and continues to find its inspiration in classic 17th century French perfumery.
The fragrances are notable for their strong expression of both tradition and modernity. Bold, distinctive, and particularly rare ingredients lend each scent creation its especially spirited and inimitable character. The creator was enthralled by the world of opera and Baroque aesthetics, and travelled extensively in far-flung corners of the earth. All of these elements provided inspiration that made an indelible mark on Laporte’s perfume artistry. The unique fragrance signature of this great master is a legacy that will garner an enthusiastic response for a long time to come.
