List of products by brand MOLINARD
Molinard is a French perfume house founded in 1849 in Grasse, a region in the south of France that is considered the birthplace of the modern perfume industry. Molinard is one of the oldest family businesses in continuous existence, and it is still a totally family business even today.
In 1900, Molinard expanded with the purchase of an old perfume factory whose structure had been designed by Gustave Eiffel (designer of the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris). This site is still its headquarters today. The new space allowed Molinard to open a formal showroom, decorated with a magnificent collection of furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries, to receive important clients.
1921 was an important year for the house. Molinard created two products that are still popular today: Habanita, a perfume originally developed as a cigarette fragrance, and that would become a real perfume that would go down in history as one of the best creations from 1924.
The design of the bottle has long been an important component of Molinard aesthetics. In 1920, Viard, a famous bottle designer, created some beautiful aromatic bottles for Molinard. In 1930, with the successes of Habanita and the Concrete to his credit, Molinard hired the famous master glassmaker René Lalique, who created and signed for Molinard various bottles. Later in the 1930s, the glass workshops of Baccarat.
