Our story


The Different Company is born with this century, in a context where luxury is spoken about but where the real amateurs do not always find satisfaction. From this observation, appeared the first creations The Different Company, developed by Jean-Claude Ellena and Thierry de Baschmakoff.
Unique fragrances, exceptional flasks, innovative objects, this is the uncompromising spirit of The Different Company.

2000-2004 Creation and launch of The Different Company
Jean Claude Ellena and Thierry De Baschmakoff founded The Different Company and embarked on the amazing project of creating a brand that will embody the Haute Parfumerie Contemporaine, with exceptional fragrances embedded in real works of art. Freed from the constraints of costs, from the marketing codes, our goal is to regain the sense of exception and  create real and rare perfumes: a mindset  forever at the heart of the brand!
Luc Gabriel joined them in 2004 to carry the DNA and the development of the brand. This enthusiast knows this universe well for having grown up in the family perfumery held by his mother.

The first fragrances, the first flasks.
A 250 ml and a 10ml, both refillable. Three perfumes Osmanthus, still unknown to perfume lovers and yet on all organs of perfumers, Bois d'Iris, with an exceptional concentration of Iris Pallida, the the most expensive iris, and Rose Poivrée, a very personal interpretation of the Rose by Jean-Claude Ellena who still has no equivalent today, an animal rose, heady, fleshy, a unique creation.
The stage is set, The Different Company is resolutely a contemporary brand focused on and defined by creativity and which brings new olfactory emotions, in magnificent bottles, the unique association that rests on the art of high end French perfumery.
