Valeurs et engagements

AB 1882 aims to reconcile luxury and eco-responsibility, to protect beautiful gestures and to inspire an art of living.

Initially a candle producer in 1882, the company expanded into other areas, including soap production, until it redefined its roots in 2020. Marie Griffo, Alexis' great-granddaughter, decided to resurrect the family heritage and co-founded AB 1882 with Marielle Ravily, a perfume evaluator.

This talented team reinterprets the most exquisite aromas of the historical house to propose them today in solid versions in refined and refillable cases....

Le mot du comité

Elisabeth Laville
Expert in sustainable development strategies, founder of Utopies

Ancestral and family perfume house that is revived by the third generation, with a superb retro-innovation to enhance its historical fragrances: solid, natural, alcohol-free and refillable perfume.  We loved its strong ambition to value local essences in its perfumes, via for example a nice project to develop the enfleurage of lily of the valley aiming to introduce a natural lily of the valley in its perfume ranges in 2023-2024 and to upcycle the lilies of the valley from the Nantes region not sold on May 1st. The founders have clearly understood how to use labels to move forward more quickly: the company is a company with a mission as defined by the PACTE law and is currently being audited for the Origine France Garantie label. When will we see other labels of excellence like Slow Cosmetics and B Corp?

"Beauty will save the world only if it is sincere", this is the manifesto of the AB 1882 House. It obviously spoke to us right away... We are proud to accompany a brand that challenges the codes of high perfumery.

"You see, a scent awakens thought."
