Korloff Paris is a jewelry house founded in 1978 by Daniel Paillasseur, who named it after a legendary diamond, the 88-carat black Korloff Noir, at present owned by the company. Daniel Paillasseur was born in Lyon in 1948. His innovative creations had earned him international recognition and reputation before he even founded Korloff Paris. The house began its business as a small boutique and today it is a global brand with more than 50 Korloff Paris boutiques in over 58 countries and available in more than 500 select retailers from Paris to Tokyo. Korloff Paris offers a collection of high-quality and luxurious jewelry, Swiss watches, accessories, haute couture, leather goods, optic frames, sunglasses and fragrances.
The first fragrance of the house was simply named Korloff, a floral – fruity fragrance introduced in 1996. In 2008, the house launched the new perfume collection consisting of three fragrances: Kn°I, Kn°II and Kn°III. Daniel Paillasseur noted: “I create outstanding perfumes for outstanding women. Drawing on an imaginary bouquet, I have created three eau de toilette for the Korloff lady, in honour of the biggest black diamond in the world which, legend has it, brings happiness, luck and prosperity to he who holds it… weighing in at 88 carats for 88 ml of delight ". In 2010, yet another collection was launched featuring three fragrances: Korloff Lady, Korloff Man and Korloff Noir.
Designer Korloff Paris has 32 perfumes in its fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 1996 and the newest is from 2021.
