Francoise Caron


Madame Caron was born in Grasse and studied at the Roure Perfumery School. She came to Paris in 1975 to work for the Roure company, which later became Givaudan. In 1994, she joined Quest and brought Calice Becker with her. At a later point when Givaudan acquired Quest, Caron became a part of Takasago along with Francis Kurkdjian, where she's still working.

Madame Caron doesn't cleam to have a particular signature. She adapts to what is asked from her. However she prefers colognes and florals, short and quick formulas. She loves the elusive aspect of colognes. And also created the cologne Chic for Astier de Villatte.

Mme Caron became the perfumer of Astier de Villatte in 2008 and created, among others, the scents of the candle collection. The idea was : a town and a component of that specific place. Her last creation was the candle Villa Médicis. Inspired by the gardens of the French academy in Rome. Subtle aromas of lemon leaves, lavender and origan flowers.
