JEAN DESPREZ

Jean Desprez was born into a perfume dynasty, and apprenticed with some of the most respected perfumers of the time. In 1928 he opened his own perfumery house, and employed artists and sculptors to work on the packaging. In 1962 he launched the legendry Bal à Versailles, which at its launch was the most expensive perfume of all time due to its incredibly complex marriage of some 300 ingredients.
