Roger & Gallet
It was the year 1806, when the first product marketed by Roger & Gallet was created. Jean Marie Farina (a descendent from the creator of the original “Eau de Cologne”) was the official supplier of the great European courts, including Napolean I. It was then that he created for such a remarkable customer a customized bottle of “Eau de Cologne”, which format made it possible for him to carry it everywhere inside his boot. This specific product was named by Jean Maria Farina as “Emperor’s roll”.
It was only in 1862 that Armand Roger, together with his brother-in-law Charles Gallet founded the brand Roger & Gallet in Paris, becoming known for the originality and quality of the products they created.
