The story of Maison Oriza L. Legrand isn’t new. Far from it! This historic perfumery has been created in 1720 and founded by Jean-Louis Fargeon. This name might ring a bell for some and for good reason, he’s known for having among his clients some very posh celebrities including no other than Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette.
The house has transcended the ages, supplying its share of historic characters such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Joséphine de Beauharnais. Today, the house still exists and is not about to disappear! Now nestled in Paris 2nd arrondissement, the perfumery invites you to return to History through its fragrances.
Pushing the doors of this historic address in Paris, you’ll discover iconic perfumes that managed to cross the time eras. You can travel in time through collections. Belle Epoque, Second Empire, Art Déco and even Exposition Universelle de 1900, to each period its olfactive works.
But Oriza is not only a story about perfumes. It’s also a story of quality cares! A thorough choice about ingredients and production methods giving birth to a range of serums, balms and other cares including some that are essential oil-free. A clever way to suit all kinds of skin.
