Local is the new cool.
Founded in 2017 in Nice by Adrien Gautier, grandson of Master Perfumer, Le Parfum Citoyen is the first ethical and civic perfumery house born from crowdfunding. We offer a collection of luxury perfumes at a fair price, with the assurance of a Made in France product benefiting the local economy, respectful of the environment and promoting French artisanal know-how.
Clean, Vegan formulation and short circuits
We work with the best perfumers at every stage of creation. Each of the components of Parfum Citoyen is sourced from French suppliers recognized for their excellence. Each fragrance is formulated without controversial ingredients, with particular attention paid to the selection of the finest raw materials and manufactured in an artisanal manner by one of the oldest perfumers in the Grasse region. A family business guaranteeing exceptional know-how passed down over 4 generations. The Citizen Perfume is then assembled in this same historic workshop, by hand by our artisans, with passion.
Why an olfactory portrait?
Based on the observation that we do not always know which perfume corresponds to our personality, we have created olfactory portraits: each fragrance is structured around three character traits with which you can identify yourself or your friends. We've done all the work for you! It took us more than a year and a half of formulation with our Nose to finally create perfumes that really suit you!
Adrien, Founder and Geek Chic
Le Parfum Citoyen was founded in Nice in 2017 by Adrien Gautier, a former Recruiter, grandson of Perfumer Grassois who decided to swap his Blackberry for the mouillettes of his childhood.
“What drives me is to highlight the know-how of French SMEs and local independent perfumers and to address an alternative offer to all those who, like me, aspire to an ethical and affordable offer in perfumery. »
