Wilgermain

Wilgermain is a luxury perfume house that was born from the encounter between a world renown perfumer, Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Francisco Gratacós, its founder and CEO, with the aim of satisfying many different lifestyles, from the most demanding fragrance aficionado to the individual buying a quality scent for the first time, as it offers a carefully edited collection of exceptional fragrances, conceived to cover a broad range of fragrant themes.

Deeply imbued with the tastes and character of both Paris and New York, the house, as well as each one of its scents, found their inspiration in these two cities; both the City of Lights and the Big Apple are the unquestionable muses of the brand.

With an international scope and a will to become universal, each detail of Wilgermain has been thoughtfully conceived and has been entirely produced in both Europe and the USA by traditional artisans, all of its components being environmentally friendly.


The founder

Wilgermain is the brainchild of Francisco Gratacós, a man who is passionate about art, design and perfumery.

Francisco specialized in business management until a new project took him to the world of perfumes by the hand of one of the greatest Spanish perfumers, which was in fact the beginning of an exciting journey. Beyond business, he had found a way to merge his three passions, so he decided to dive fully into the fragrance world.

After years helping well-known niche perfume brands, Francisco decided to materialize his ideas creating a high-end fragrance house.

With a strong desire for originality and quality, he enrolled a great friend, the world-renowned master perfumer, Rodrigo Flores-Roux, and after many   exchanges of ideas, Wilgermain was born and thrives as an olfactive expression of this happy encounter of thoughts.


The perfumer
Rodrigo Flores-Roux was born in Mexico 50 years ago and his attraction to the world of perfumes began at a very young age.

After completing his studies in biology, he entered the perfumery school ISIPCA, in Versailles, becoming an interim student of Jean-Claude Ellena (Hermés, Cartier, Bvlgari, Aqua di Parma)

After some first professional years as a creative head perfumer at Firmenich, Rodrigo joined the leading international laboratory Givaudan, where he currently holds the position of Vice President of Fine Fragrance Creation.

With works for brands such as Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Dolce & Gabanna, DKNY, Cerruti and others, Rodrigo is also one of the fetish perfumers of the Estée Lauder group, having signed more than 30 fragrances for the firm, among which there are 17 perfumes for one of the most relevant and well-known brands in the market.

Rodrigo is currently the only perfumer to be awarded up to 5 times with the international FiFi Awards and several of his works appear on the ?Best of? list in the Hall of Fame of the Fragrance Foundation, in NYC.
