When we create a fragrance we delight in the unexpected and its power to seduce. Founded by English-based, Paris-trained perfumer, James Bronnley, we’ve been proudly innovating since 1884.

Bronnley was introduced as one of the original British perfumery brands, founded by James Bronnley, an adventurous and imaginative man whose passion for perfumery led him to travel to France at the age of nineteen, to study the art of developing olfactive scents.

Achieving this at a time when creating scent was an art form reserved solely for the Parisian elite perfumers, he applied his skills and knowledge to experiment with fusions that were inherently innovative and held a quintessentially British signature.

In doing so, James Bronnley brought home for the first time, accessible luxury in the form of expertly compiled perfumes and indulgently scented formulations that withstood their popularity even in times of austerity.

This year, to celebrate our heritage and in true pioneering form, we introduce Eclectic Elements, a modern take on the romantic art of perfumery.
