FROM GRASSE TO MILAN: THE RANCÉ DINASTY
1686
Distillateurs - Parfumeurs in Grasse
Since the 17th Century the Rancé Maison, based in Grasse, was renowned for a unique mastery in crafting perfumed gloves. The ability to master the techniques of Gantiers-Parfumeurs, soon evolved into the art of distilling and blending essences. From this legacy, in 1795 Francois Rancé established his Parfumeur - Distillateur laboratory.
1795
Perfumer for the court of Napoleon
Appointed as official purveyor to the Imperial French Court and Napoleon's favourite perfumer, François Rancé revolutionized the art of perfumery by creating fragrances of timeless excellence. Subsequent generations of the Rancé family have continued to develop innovative fragrances and gems of perfumery for illustrious figures of their times.
1902
Milan: a new era begins
In 1902, thanks to Alexandre Rancé the company moved to Milan, starting a new era for the Maison. The RANCÉ 1795 legacy is now housed in the Milan historical Headquarters, in a permanent Museum that brings together vintage Rancé products, part of the archives, and the Rancé collection of perfumery objets d'art.
