The history of EAU DE COLOGNE
reinvented by Roger&Gallet
In 1862, Armand Roger & Charles Gallet created the Maison Roger&Gallet in order to sell the legendary Eau de Cologne.
The secret formula which they had inherited from Jean-Marie Farina, was composed more than a hundred years before by Farina’s ancestor under the name Aqua Mirabilis.
The Aqua Mirabilis could be applied on all parts of the body, healing wounds, burns and cuts, disinfecting and calming the heart.
Jean-Marie Farina Eau de Cologne is made of 18 naturally distilled essences, including precious Mediterranean citrus, flowers and herbs. It smells incredibly good and offers a refreshing well-being benefit.
In 2017, Roger&Gallet reinvents its original Eau de Cologne: The Extraits de Cologne, re-imagined by five world renowned perfumers. Each scent contains the freshness of a Cologne, with the long-lasting intensity of an Eau de Parfum.
