Le Galion

Le Galion, once inspired by majestic seafaring vessels with their vast square sterns, has been described as 'a Phoenix rising from the Ashes' which since 1985 has remained dormant.The story begins in 1935 when Paul Vacher, a talented perfumer whom having created fragrances for many prestigious houses including Arpege de Lanvin and the famous Miss Dior bought the company from its founder Prince Murat.

In 1975 Paul Vacher tragically died and his wife and daughter who were already involved in the company took it over and continued to do so (creating a yet to be released fragrance in 1978) until it became apparent that the company could no longer compete with the big investors and the company was sold in 1980. 5 years later, the brand became no more and it was not until 2012 that Le Galion parfum brand was restored and working alongside Paul Vacher's daughter as an olfactory consultant, the fragrance was re-born.
