Molinard was established in Grasse in 1849, and is best known for the iconic Habanita (1924). The company is still family-owned, and popular lines in modern times include the Autour de La Vanille collection.
In 2005, Molinard launched the Molinard 1849 collection, re-issues of seven of their classics: Habanita, Gardenia, Verveine de Molinard (1948), Iles d’ Or (1929), Un Air de Molinard, M de Molinard, and Nirmala (1955) in liquid and in perfume solid form.
In 2008, Molinard created Histoire de Chypre as an exclusive for Aedes.
