The Galeries de Parfums brand started as a love of niche perfumery by the owner Jide Oyetola, who frequently indulged in our house brands at Harrods and other well-known niche boutique perfumeries.
The vision was to bring niche brands to the South African market that are exclusively housed at GDPSA.
The company took off after securing six brands (Kajal, Boadicea the Victorious, Christian Provenzano, Ormonde Jayne, Amouroud, and Fragrance du Bois) which was then officially launched to the public starting as a stand-in Sandton City on the Diamond Walk.
The pop-up stand grew within a week and carried on for a year-long with a niche and strong clientele who since followed the brand.
The GDPSA range has since broadened along with the popularity of two new brands that were onboarded on the SA Shores exclusively available at GDPSA: (Atelier des Ors and Nishane).
With the ongoing success, growth, and support from all over the continent to our country.
