A native of Paris, (born 1936), Jean-Louis Scherrer studied ballet before he entered the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne to study fashion. During the height of his popularity, Jean-Louis Scherrer dressed the rich and famous, their names almost synonymous with the best dressed list. His clientele included Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch for the Hollywood set, Patricia Kennedy Lawford, Ann Getty and Queen Noor of Jordan. In 1992, he left the company he founded. The firm Jean-Louis Scherrer is currently controlled by the France Luxury Group. The earliest fragrance edition was created in 1979 and the newest ones is from 2008. Jean-Louis Scherrer fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Nathalie Lorson, Raphael Haury, Nathalie Feisthauer and Marie-Aude Couture-Bluche.
