The Aromachological World of Roger & Gallet

Roger_GalletToday, I would like to take you on an aromachological journey with Roger & Gallet. Recently, I attended their press conference n Zurich at the beautifully decorated Pflanzbar that provided the perfect ambiance to experience this olfactory adventure. Personally speaking, it has been one of the most breathtaking presentations in a very long time. Roger & Gallet offers a natural touch of emotion and luxury everyday with their know-how of a perfumer-apothecary since 1862.


Inspired by the original Eau de Cologne Jean Marie Farina, official supplier to Napoleon I, the creations of Roger & Gallet result from an authentic know-how of distillation of rare natural ingredients. At the Pflanzbar, we were able to go on a perfumer’s journey to the heart of some of the most beautiful gardens in the world.


Let me share with you the secret of a wonderful and unique daily beauty regime. Perfumes that are composed with natural essential oils, soaps perfumed to their ‘heart’ using the traditional cauldron method and body care with exceptional textures.



Succumb to the exuberance of Indian gardens, allow yourself to be aroused by the magic of maharajahs’ palaces, the sensual swish of silk saris and savour a sparkling bouquet of ginger flowers and precious wood mingled with the sensual spices.



Allow yourself to be carried away by the radiant, sacred atmosphere of Mount Fuji rising among the tea fields. The senses are aroused, the mind is stimulated under a natural waterfall of green tea and citrus fruit blended with the subtle sensuality of the precious wood, inspired by the wisdom and harmony of the oriental tradition. The balancing of body and mind.




An olfactive journey into the Andalucian gardens of the Alhambra in Grenada under the orange trees of the Generalife Palace.  Capture the vibrant sunshine, as well as the freshness of the leaf and the fruit, the softness of the flower and the fresh sensuality of orange wood.






The exquisite refinement of a mythical flower with a bewitching perfume and silky  petals. A magical walk through the splendour of the palaces of Bengal and their delectable gardens, it celebrates its union with the mystery of amber.




This beautiful fragrance transports you into a Chinese Garden of Eden, in quest of the rare and mysterious flower of happiness.


And here is the newest addition to the Roger & Gallet fragrance family:



Imagined during a trip to the Mediterranean garden of Esterel, this new fresh and indulgent scent radiates light and opulence. The sensual accord of fig pulp is first enhanced by a hint of caraway and the freshness of grapefruit. The fragrance notes of crisp fig leaves then reveal themselves as they blend with those of mandarin blossom. Finally, the sensuality of musk and fig wood provides a sensation of relaxing wellbeing. A truly amazing new scent!

Available from April 2013 in pharmacies.
Eau Fraîche CHF 59.70 (100ml) 
Crème Douche CHF 16.00 (200ml), Soap CHF 9.60 (100g) and Body Milk CHF 20.60 (200ml)
