Pierre Guillaume

The perfume is an artistic expression of a science


In 2002, Pierre Guillaume, a young 25-year-old chemist composed his first fragrance, COZÉ 02. This “Spicy Tobacco” accord, inspired by the contents of a precious cigar case owned by his father, received critical acclaim from the fragrance blogosphere, which brought it to the attention of professional buyers all around the world, marking the commercial debut of the brand, Pierre Guillaume – Parfumerie Générale.

Parfumerie Pierre Guillaume is an independent, family-owned Composition House located in Clermont Ferrand (France). Fact to be enough rare to be highlighted, PG has internalized in 2010 a perfume production line including a composition studio, a cellar of raw materials and a packing line entirely dedicated to the manufacture of perfumes. The company gives priority to geographic proximity and to French-made products when selecting its suppliers: the pumps, bottles, boxes, caps, labels, booklets, etc., reducing by the same time carbon emissions. Each perfume bottle is  The lab technicians bottle by hand by “Table Ladies”.

Considering the perfume as the artistic expression of a science, Pierre Guillaume composes as an autodidact from a decade a sincere and generous perfumery, in his own workshops in Clermont. He likes to think the perfume as an enhancer of oneself, and takes his creative inspirations from cultural references often borrowed from painting and photrography.
