Quintessentially English, Grossmith are a brand with great provenance. Their story dates back to 1835, when the perfume house was first started by John Grossmith.
Grossmith soon became renowned and esteemed for their elegant perfumes which captured the spirit of the Victorian era, when exotic places and travel inspired fragrance. In 1851 Grossmith was awarded a medal for perfumery and essential oils at the Great Exhibition, hugely important at a time when perfume was dominated by French perfumeries. Continued success then led the house to win a Royal warrant for perfumery, producing perfumes for Queen Alexandra and the Royal courts of Spain and Greece.
A chance find led to Simon Brooke, rediscovering his heritage and family history as the great great grandson of John Grossmith.
In collaboration with Robertet using the original formulae, Simon and his wife Amanda have revitalised Grossmith for a new generation. The Black Label perfumes are a collection of traditional scents with a modern flourish, whilst the Classic collection is a trio of three fragrances revitalised using the original formulae, with the oldest perfume Hasu-No-Hana dating back to 1888.
Exquisitely crafted, luxurious fragrances made with a distinct vintage style.
