Maison Lancôme, a legacy of the art of living May 22, 2019 Beauty 50 Maison Lancôme celebrates the French art of living that has defined the rose-emblemed brand ever since it was created by perfumer Armand Petitjean in 1935. A refined aesthete and true epicurean, a lover of travel, flowers and gastronomy alike, the Lancôme founder injected the house with the values that distinguish it still today: upholding a tradition of French excellence inherited from the golden age of modern perfumery to create generous and indulgent compositions. An exclusive field of expression for this exceptional legacy, Maison Lancôme teams the finest artistic talents with unique expertise to offer a range of fragrances composed, designed and made in France. In 2019, the collection explores a new facet of the French art of living and thus marks the beginning of the next chapter in its story. In the wake of the Grands Crus, Maison Lancôme is drawing inspiration from French Gardens for its four new creations: Figues & Agrumes, Magnolia Rosae, Patchouli Aromatique and Pivoines Printemps.
