Over the last few years, Jean-Charles Brosseau launched a feminine line of floral-oriented fragrances called “Fleurs d’Ombre” (“Ombre Bleue”, “Violette-Menthe”, “Jasmin-Lilas”, “Rose”, “Bergamote”, “Nymphéa”), a men’s line called “Collection Homme” (“Thé Brun”, “Atlas Cedar”, “Fruit de Bois”, “Bois d’Orient”), as well as 2 new “Ombres” : “Ombre Platine” and “Ombre Orientale”. ”
Actually, the carrer of my father didn’t start with fragrances but with hats and fashion accessories. It’s only later that he decided to work on a fragrance, in order to add a last accessory to those he was already making. This was a great idea and a great achievement. Nowadays, the fashion of hats is no more what it used to be, and most of the know-how has disappeared from France. In the 1950s, all men and women were wearing hats, and it is not the case anymore. If you have a look in the Streets of Paris or New York, you will see very few people with a hat on the head. But fragrances are an essential accessory, invisible and so personal. It is our unique activy now.
