Our Company: Parfum des îles
The company was created in Martinique in 1996 and was taken over in 2008 by Véronicka Cormouls-Houles, who has managed to instil technicality and modernity while keeping the passion of this independent family business intact. The new generation represented by her daughter, Victoire, ensures the sustainability of its development.
Expertise And Innovation Of Tropical Fragrances
We use traditional or high-tech natural raw materials by assimilating the cultural, technical and artisanal specificities of the Tropical Islands. For over 20 years, Parfums des Iles has acquired a unique ability to develop fragrances for its perfumes and soaps by specializing in exotic and tropical scents. Parfums des Iles is the first artisan perfumer to use natural alcohol from the distillation of sugar cane in its creations, thus enhancing the Caribbean terroir.
