Our perfumer Jean JACQUES carefully selects the raw materials of our creations. He looks for ingredients that are both olfactory sublime and in harmony with our convictions. The House of CARON thus works for a responsible and committed luxury, in tune with the times.
CARON is a partner of the Monique Remy Naturals Laboratory to develop its palette of beautiful raw materials. Its mission is to work in direct contact with partners around the world to find natural and sustainable ingredients of the highest quality.
Lavender from France, orange blossom from Tunisia, sandalwood from New Caledonia, vetiver from Haiti, and patchouli from Indonesia…We have selected five of our favorite ingredients, which have a special place in our perfumer’s palette.
Follow us on a world tour of some of CARON’s most precious ingredients.

Natural lavender is an essential ingredient in the history of the House of CARON. It is overdosed at 61% in Pour Un Homme de CARON.
In order to guarantee the unparalleled quality and traceability of our creations, the House of CARON collaborates with Jérôme BOENLE, a lavender producer based in Sault, Provence.
All the lavender essence from France used in the production of the Trilogy Pour Un Homme de CARON is harvested exclusively from his fields.
A meaningful partnership that reflects CARON’s craftsmanship and heritage, a House renowned for using the most beautiful lavenders in its fragrances.

Orange blossom at CARON
The House of CARON has built a long-term partnership developed by LMR with « Les Vergers de Tunisie », a company recognized internationally for its production of high-quality ingredients.
We contribute to implement better cultivation practices, to improve yields, wages, and reduce the environmental footprint. We have also established farming contracts and traceability with local farmers, ensuring them a fair and stable price for their crops.
Hand-picked in April, orange blossom is an ingredient dear to our House.

Sandalwood at CARON
By using sandalwood, our perfumer Maison Jean JACQUES preserves New Caledonia’s environment and biodiversity. In this way, we contribute to the restoration of the western arid zone into fertile zone and we protect the tree through good agricultural practices.
Among the various measures implemented, the plantation is capital to preserve the sustainability of the supply-chain, the local economic and social well-being.
La Maison CARON relies on a long-term partnership initiated by LMR with a renowned sandalwood supplier offering one of the finest sandalwood essence in the world.
This committed structure demonstrates equity and generates direct and indirect financial benefit for local communities.

Working closely with Haitian vetiver producers.
Vetiver at CARON
In 2020, CARON perfumes got involved with the Vetiver Forward project by the non-profit organisation Heifer International, a non-profit NGO whose goal is to eradicate poverty and famine. This partnership supports more than 3,000 Veitver farmers via six cooperatives. This 10% overdosed ingredient is found in our AIMEZ-MOI COMME JE SUIS fragrance, as well as Vétiver Infini.
This initiative allows farmers to strengthen their negotiating power on the market and to earn additional income in order to improve their standard of living in the long term. This also supports sustainable agricultural practices by preserving the health of the soils and biodiversity.
