The Roger & Gallet line was founded in 1806 by Jean Marie Farina, a descendent of Johann Farina, the inventor of Eau de Cologne. Jean Marie Farina set up shop in Paris with his own Eau de Cologne, and became one of Napoleon's fragrance suppliers. In 1862, Armand Roger and Charles Gallet took over the brand and expanded into new areas, including skin care and the now famous Roger & Gallet soaps (see review for Carnation soap).
Roger & Gallet was purchased by L'Oreal in early 2008.
