120 Champs-Elysées Paris 1929

The CHERIGAN house was born in a pivotal period, an enchanted parenthesis during which Paris became the epicenter of the artistic world, the origin of a wave of liberation and creativity, of the explosion of perfume houses and their olfactory creations ever more sensual and daring.

And in this world, CHERIGAN has become the discreet VIP brand, creator of CHANCE , PARISIENNE and FLEURS DE TABAC among other great perfumes.

The myth was launched.

crazy years

In the exalted atmosphere of 1929, Maison Cherigan offers innovative creations, rich in this current of daring and chic that animates the capital. They perfume those who have made Montparnasse and Montmartre their playground.

Mixed with the singing measures of a trumpet, comes laughter, all the thrill of a generation.


"I discovered CHERIGAN in 2016 in the perfumery archives. By talking with collectors, bloggers, perfumers, by searching online auction sites, I was able to find legendary bottles from the house, for some in perfect condition. I entered a magical world made of creative freedom, olfactory pleasure, the search for perfection. TOBACCO FLOWERS, IMPERIAL BLUE, Petticoats and MASCARADES.

The latter was made in the Cristalleries de Nancy. It is undoubtedly a unique example intact with its pure gold enamelling.

A living testimony to the luxury of the 1930s, a bridge between the two modernities, 1920 and 2020."

Luc GABRIEL, founder

The scents ignite on burning skin with a thirst for the future, to the rhythm of the charleston. Elsewhere attracts, travel is intensifying, the world is opening up. In this Caribbean city, a place for wild parties, Cherigan will open its second brand, where an unscrupulous importer will try to appropriate the CHERIGAN name.


Very quickly, the brand experienced immense popularity, particularly among film stars, at the dawn of Broadway success. Then the brand gets lost in the twists and turns of commercial exploitation and falls into oblivion before being reawakened in 2021.
