Fourrures Weil, a small family-owned company of furriers, was founded in 1912. The three brothers Jacques, Marcel and Alfred Weil, who had made furs for the wealthy for years, made a natural move in offering perfumes to their clients. Parfums Weil was established in 1927. The original idea was to scent fur coats which tend to develop their own smell but this idea quickly evolved and real perfumes were available. All perfumes that were sold between 1927 and 1954 came in bottles made by Baccarat.
