BACKSTORY

In French "petite histoire" is the backstory between lovers: it is the narrative that entwines them, the palpable tension that defines them.

PETITE HISTOIRE is a line of all-natural fragrances drawing inspiration from global settings and the emotions we feel with those we love.

ALL-NATURAL PERFUME

Much like people, natural ingredients are affected by their environments: the weather, soil, and even the elevation can all impact scent. As such, one plant can yield a variety of nuanced aromas: if it were a song, the music would be the same, but the lyrics would be entirely different.

Petite Histoire embraces these differences, sourcing materials from around the globe to create wildly seductive fragrances. While our formulas remain the same, the inherent variation of all-natural ingredients ensures the love affair is uniquely yours.

Our all-natural perfumes are formulated to the standards of ISO norm 9235, as defined by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), which defines natural aromatic raw materials as being physically obtained from plants using distillation, expression, and extraction. Our formulas utilize essential oils, oleoresins, distillations, fractions, concretes, and absolutes.

JEFF SMITH

I learned to live in Italy; to love in Paris; to work in New York City. I spent several years building a career in Manhattan, but what I found missing from my daily life, what I had cherished in Europe, was the subtle art of the everyday seduction. Witty banter, charming flirtation, the luxury of leisure: I missed the slower pace of life that ensured a connection with my surroundings. And so I turned my attention to something I’ve been passionate about for as long as I can remember: perfume.
