Founded in 1849, the Maison Molinard reinvents itself every day with Perfume as DNA. Five generations of perfumers, expertise and passion, centred around creation, handed down over 165 years. Based in the world's perfume capital since its beginnings, the Maison Molinard distils luxury and authenticity, modernity and tradition in fragrances bursting with emotion.

In 1921 the legendary Habanita imposed its signature scent in the history of perfumery. Today in contemporary black and with its Lalique inspiration frieze, this legendary and timeless fragrance is still making waves. True olfactory prowess from the Roaring Twenties, Habanita was the first female oriental to delight the Garçonnes. With supreme audacity, its floral-woody signature heralded the idealisation of the women who wore it, enigmatic and sensual.

More avant-garde than ever, the House created Concreta in 1925, the first solid perfume made from natural flower wax. Thus a new perfume language was born.

A pioneer to the soul, Molinard possesses many treasures in its sumptuous 1900s Provencal house: Provencal furniture, vintage labels and posters, a collection of flasks signed by master glassmakers such as the Baiser du Faune by René Lalique, the Diamant flask by Baccarat and many more ... This is where unique and captivating fragrances are still created to nourish the finest scented dreams. The Private Collection epitomizes the house credo, excellence.

A guided tour reveals production secrets deep in the stills and the distilloir, whose metal structure was designed by Gustave Eiffel. In the sales lounge, countless gift boxes are presented on top of a magnificent glass dome. From the Bar des Fragrances to the Perfume Workshop, creativity is under the spotlight! In the era of customisation, now every visitor can design their own scent and enjoy an unforgettable experience.
