RANCÉ

From the beginning of 1600s, the Rancé family became famous for producing perfumed gloves for the French Aristocracy in Grasse, France.

In 1795,François Rancé turned entirely to perfumery, creating extremely refined and modern perfumes that secured him the favour of Napoleon. He became the Emperor’s favourite perfumer and created perfumes such as Le Vainqueur and Triomphe for him.

Today, the head of the family firm is held by his granddaughter Jeanne Sandra Rancé with her son, Jean Maurice Alexandre Rancé.
