Created in 1990, l’Osmothèque has 3 objectives:

  • The first perfume archive in all history : The Osmothèque collection today represents more than 4,000 perfumes, including 400 that are no longer available. 
  • The  Osmothèque encompasses the heritage of French perfumery, enabling us to retrace the epic saga of the fragrance industry from when the very rst synthetic molecules were introduced, up until contemporary times. It keeps seeking for discontinued fragrances and ensure that it can recreate them. 
  • Knowledge sharing: the Osmothèque is deeply involved in passing on learning, both through talks on perfume-related topics intended for industry insiders and keen amateurs, and through its publications.





The Société Française des Parfumeurs is an association established under the French law of July 1, 1901.

The SFP was founded to bring together those working in perfumery and related industries, and encourage the study of all artistic, scienti c, technical, pedagogical, historical, or general- interest issues with a bearing on the sector. This remit puts the SFP in a position to defend and promote standards of excellence in French perfumery.

With 75 years of existence, the SFP counts today more than 900 professionals – both French and European – as active members, all involved in the fragrance industry, including perfume designers, marketing heads, evaluators, quality assessors, production managers, legislators,  and lots more besides.
