Perfumer Henri Giboulet is best known, perhaps, for his creation of Gin Fizz for Lubin. However, upon the retirement of Henri Alméras, Henri Giboulet was invited to become in-house perfumer for Jean Patou.
This was a period of struggle for the House of Patou. Whereas the war had brought prosperity to America, lifting it out of the Depression, the German Occupation, coming on the heels of the Depression, had brought the fashion business in France to a near standstill. Moreover, Jean Patou the spiritual and creative force behind the business had been dead since 1935.
Upon his retirement in 1967, the Patou baton was handed off to Jean Kerleo.
