About 1902 Eau De Toilette
     




 


THE FOUNDERS
Back in 1902, Berdoues opened for business in Toulouse city-centre, France.
Two young entrepreneurs, Pierre and his brother Guillaume made inroads
into the beauty sector by trading as wholesalers in major
brand perfumery and salon hairdressing equipment. Guillaume had sharp business acumen,
eventually taking over the development of the family business in the region... and his efforts soon paid off.
Maison Berdoues traded from 15 rue Lafayette, Toulouse and its reputation soared.







FIRST WINDFALL
At the beginning of the 30s, Henri, Guillaume's son, joined the family business with his two brothers.
Henri had trained as a chemical engineer, but he was first and foremost, a perfume creator
and as it happens impassioned, the "nose" of Maison Berdoues.

Henri unveiled his most exquisite creation - the legendary Violette de Toulouse - in 1936.
It has withstood the test of time and remains a creation
whose success will never go out of fashion, as it is timeless and one-of-a-kind.








FRENCH PREPARATION
In the 60s, Pierre Berdoues took the reins of the company.
The modern industrialist in him set about revamping the manufacturing facility.
A new, bigger, automated production plant was built,
while a well-appointed in-house research laboratory put innovation centre-stage of Maison Berdoues' strategy.
In 1990, Sophie Berdoues, the founder's great-granddaughter and qualified pharmacist,
joined the family business with her input of expertise and inspiration.
In 2009, Sophie Berdoues became the CEO of the Group Berdoues Parfums & Cosmetiques.
 



 

KNOW-HOW

We are the custodians of the expertise of these four generations of perfumers embodied in original,

created in the utmost respect for perfumery at its best.
