How To Choose Perfume - Bon Parfumeur


Bon Parfumeur is a niche perfume house that offers clean, genderless and eco-responsible fragrances. Created and made with local suppliers in France (the design begins in Paris, the juice is from Grasse, the bottle from Normandie, and production is in Chartres)  local manufacturing allows the brand to minimise transportation costs while fully valuing French fragrance know-how. Even though the price is at the more affordable end of the perfume market, 99% of the ingredients are from natural sources, without dyes or UV filters and the bottle is 100% recyclable.

" Choosing a perfume is about giving yourself a special moment, it is also connecting with the heart of another person, bringing them joy, because fragrance creates bonds". Bon Parfumeur.

Designed like a traditional workshop, each fragrance is attached to a unique olfactory family that shares similar characteristics while each bottle contains three informative factors: a number to identify the chronology of creation, the three main ingredients of the blend, and an olfactory family recognizable by its color, making it easy to quickly identity which fragrance you may connect to.

Below you can find out what each family represents, to gain a deeper understanding on Bon Parfumeur and its scents.
