Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

Maître Parfumeur et Gantier was established in Paris in 1988 by Jean Laporte, the founder and former owner of L'Artisan Parfumeur. For his new perfume house, LaPorte was inspired by the French tradition of master glove-makers, who became perfumers by necessity to supply the perfumed gloves that were all the rage in 17th century Paris: "I wanted to do something different and my concept is tied to the past. I was seduced by the tradition of the parfumeur-gantiers, who were located mostly in Paris and served the king and, later, the emperor." (Women's Wear Daily, 9/6/1991) Jean Paul Millet Lage, who apprenticed with Laporte, is the current house nose.
