Freesia & Coton, Berdoues plunges us into a cottony cloud
If Toulouse is known for its Place du Capitole or its huge aviation center, this is also the birthplace of the Berdoues family . Directed today by Sophie Berdoues, the eponymous brand has several dozen fragrances to its credit, as well as a history more than a hundred years old. Generation after generation, the Berdoues have passed on an unparalleled love for smells and unparalleled traditional know-how. Today, Berdoues has therefore decided to pay tribute to all this heritage, through an olfactory collection called 1902.

Freesia & Coton, the fragrance of radiant and luminous femininity
Freesia & Coton is a light and airy fragrance, designed for all free women, managing to live each day with optimism, in a playful way.

The added touch of originality comes from Sophie Berdoues, the founder’s granddaughter, with a limitless creative vision.
