Cacharel Parfums

A division of the Parisian fashion house Cacharel; established by Jean Bousquet in 1962; born in 1932 in Nimes. Bosquet originally studied men's tailoring but found it too limiting. In1956, he began his apprenticeship with a small ready to wear shop in Paris,, and within five years was known as a pioneer of fashion.





Bosquet named his company after a small wild duck found in his native Provence. the soft and feminine signature Cacharel print has remained extremely popular since its introduction in the mid 1960s, and has been applied to silk dresses, as well as colorful sporty separates.  Cacharel also produces a line of men's clothing and the widely copied mini couture clothing for children.

Jean Bosquet has continued to develop his business interests, with distribution throughout Western Europe and the United States. In 1983, he was elected mayor of his native Nimes.
