Quelques Fleurs was the first true multi-floral bouquet. The Genealogy of Perfumes cites Quelques Fleurs as "a landmark innovation that established a totally new fragrance classification and influenced other compositions for many years afterwards including several of today's most highly regarded fragrances." An exceptional floral composition created from a bouquet of Jasmine and Rose petals, gently blended with precious woods such as Santal and warmed by a powdered Musk. Roullier White is extremely proud to be amongst a limited number of international stockists for Quelques Fleurs.

Jean-François Houbigant of Grasse founded Houbigant in Paris in 1775. Houbigant originally sold gloves and bridal bouquets, originally selling gloves, perfumes, and bridal bouquets. The original shop sign was a hand painted basket of flowers, this was later to become the inspiration for the company’s hugely successful 1912 release; Quelques Fleurs. Houbigant were also pioneers in the use of synthetics, leading them to create the world’s first Fougère fragrance with Fougère Royal. Both Quelques Fleurs and Fougère Royal enjoy almost cult like status at Roullier White, with devotees returning year after year and new ones joining every day.
