In 1904 in Paris, Caron was born out of the sparks that flew when two extraordinary people, Félicie Wanpouille and Ernest Daltroff, first met. It was the explosive union of a woman with fantastic intuition, and a perfumer as talented as he was determined. Two free and independent spirits, two different yet complementary characters, brought together by a single vision driven by audacity and freedom.

Pooling their talents and sharing their desires, they formed the founding duo of a perfume house that broke with the codes of its time and, with its very first creations, asserted a radical and instantly recognisable identity: powerful trails, harmony that surges forth from contrast, or even from direct opposites.

Caron was more than a house: it was a revolution.
