The French have a long tradition and skills in the art of making perfumes. The great names in fashion have assisted in exporting some of the most important names in perfume thoughout the world. Even perfumes that are not produced in France are classed under the 'French perfumes' banner, as it describes a certain type of fragrance with the classic notes commonly found in perfumes originally made in France.
The birth place for French perfumes is in the southern Province region and is called "Occitane" (pronounced Ox C tan). The abundance of lavender, herbs and many other wild flowers on the rocky landscape, warm climate, plus hundreds of years of experience in distilling mixtures and creating scents have made France one of the world's leading perfume manufacturers.
