In 1880, perfumer Paul Parquet inherited the Houbigant business. Today Paul Parquet is widely regarded as the first perfumer to appreciate the importance of the new synthetic aroma chemicals. As Houbigant's chief perfumer, he used coumarin (synthetic) in his 1882 creation, Fougère Royal. This was followed by the use of eugenols and crystalline synthetics in Le Parfum Idèal (1900).
