Graduated from the High Fashion school of Paris, Jean-Charles Brosseau created his own label and founded his fashion House in 1955 in Paris, on the Left Bank.
In 1970, he set up his salon in Paris on the Place des Victoires, which became in his wake the new trendy place of the fashion designers.
In 1981, he created his first perfume “Ombre Rose”, which became quickly a best seller in France, the USA, the Middle-East, and the Far-East.
“Ombre Rose” is now considered as a “Classic” of the High Perfumery, and rightfully sits among some of the very best fragrances ever: “No.5” by Chanel, “Samsara” by Guerlain, “Opium” by Yves Saint-Laurent, “Diorissimo" by Dior, "L'Air du Temps" by Nina Ricci, and "Le Dix" by Balenciaga.
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”.
The Brosseau style is comprised of small details that seem simple, yet appeal to women and prove to be eternal. Beyond the passing trends, his fragrances are timeless, as quality and elegance do not require flashy finery. The main goal of Jean-Charles Brosseau is to create highly qualitative fragrances, made of the best components from various world origins. Each fragrance is enclosed in a superb bottle which symbolizes the excellence of the French craft. The packagings are classic and restrained, and show the refined discretion of the creator.
