Roger&Gallet history

The story of Roger&Gallet goes back to 1693. Giovanni Paolo Feminis invented a medicinal water featuring 18 plants, the Acqua Marabilis, known as an antidote to many ailments. It was the year 1806 when Jean Marie Farina inherited and patented the miracle recipe. From Cologne to Paris, Acqua Mirabilis went through borders to be transformed— or, we may even consider, upgraded—into nothing less than a perfume! Then, Roger&Gallet became the official supplier of the great European courts, including Napolean I and the empress Eugenie.

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. From this partnership, came several innovative products such as soaps, tooth care, beauty care for the face, hair and even makeup. But it was only in 1879 that one of the most iconic products of the brand was born, the round soap with its perfume in the center, which allows for better adhesion, leaving the soap perfumed until its last use.

The opening of the “Boutique du Bonheur”—or “The Shop of Happiness”—in Paris, in the year 1932, attracted clients such as Marilyn Monroe and Maria Callas. An important reference for social gatherings, “The Shop of Happiness” was home for beauty products that left no one indifferent.

Roger&Gallet today

Today Roger&Gallet offers its clients a global sensory experience, combining knowledge of perfumer and pharmacist. Their products offer the possibility to their customers of leaving a delicate trail during the day thanks to their developments not only in the art of perfumery but also hygiene and skin care products.

The iconic fragrant soap bar

The iconic Roger&Gallet round soap maintains its “cauldron” manufacturing method until today. This process is secured by 4 steps, that take 80 hours of manufacture per piece: a method that ensures an extra-soft texture to the soap. They are presented in their original format wrapped in pleated silk paper and sealed with the Roger&Gallet seal. Its secret recipe has a 100% vegetable base, with a biodegradable formula. With only 100g, it should last for about 100 showers!

The variety of fragrances, the dedication to the art of perfume, hygiene and skin care, transform every use of Roger&Gallet in moments of well-being and sensory experiences, making their products the perfect gift for a loved one or yourself.
