At the end of the 19th century, Théodore Cabanel creates prestigious Colognes and Quintessences for "extraits de mouchoirs". An elegant crowd rapidly adopts the Cabanel fragrances. His daughter chooses to follow in her father's footsteps in the true tradition of "Maître Parfumeur". She rapidly becomes the Duchess of Windsor's favourite perfumer.
Caroline Ilacqua steps into the picture in 2003. Only 22 years old at the time, she boldly takes up the torch and expressing her own sensitivity gives a zip to the timeless fragrances. Working hand in hand with Jean-François Latty, one of the best in the profession, she opens a new chapter in this great adventure.
Together, they take their inspiration from the more than 150 emblematic Cabanel perfume formulae. They venture to play the score with their own modern interpretation. Today, it may be said that Teo Cabanel has re-invented exceptional perfumes which combine natural elegance and richness, the authentic sign of High French Perfumery.
As the creator of rare refined fragrances, Teo Cabanel brings the utmost care to each and every one of its perfume creations.
You cannot fail to recognise them for the quality of their fragrances and their unique design. We make no compromise on the quality. Only the purest, most natural and noble ingredients will do.
Jean Francois Latty
After graduating from the Roure Perfume Institute in Grasse, Jean-François Latty starts to work for Roure in Paris creating his first fragrances.
In 1970, he joins Roure USA and after a year is hired by International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF).
In 1987, Takasago asks him to join the company and he sets off numerous successful fragrances.
In 2000, he created JFL Creations a company specialized in perfume creation and in selling natural ingredients.
Immediately attracted by the Téo Cabanel heritage, Jean-François Latty decides to become Téo Cabanel's official perfumer.
Quality doesn't mix with compromise! Such is Latty's motto and philosophy for all his creations. Thus, his fragrances don't derive from marketing trends and passing fashion.
