Le Parfum Idéal
Houbigant
(1900)


In 1880, perfumer Paul Parquet inherited the Houbigant business and created some of its greatest perfumes. He is said to be the first perfumer who understood the importance of the new synthetic aroma chemicals. Le Parfum Idéal was created by Parquet for the 1900 World Fair and has been called an "imperishable model of perfume composition."
