An unprecedented partnership

1987


On the initiative of Jacques Polge, Perfumer for the House of CHANEL from 1978 to 2014, the House of CHANEL signed the first partnership of its kind at the time with the Mul family, the region's largest flower producer, based in Pégomas. And so began a beautiful story of trust and cooperation. Ties of friendship were formed, ensuring a lasting future for this rare heritage in Grasse and perfect control over the process from flower to fragrance. This partnership provides a guarantee of both the olfactory quality and the quantity of flowers required for CHANEL fragrances.

“Each flower has a season”

Joseph Mul has a heart that beats in unison with his flowers. “Each flower has a season,” he likes to say. In the early spring, he already knows whether May will bring a generous rose harvest.

A family affair


For five generations, the Mul family has endeavoured to safeguard these centuries-old crops of exceptional flowers for perfume. A legendary heritage that Joseph Mul inherited from his great-grandfather, the control he maintains for the next generation.

Following suit, in 2014, Jacques Polge handed the keys to the CHANEL Fragrance Laboratory over to his son, Olivier Polge.
