THE ORLOV STORY

A FRENCH PERFUME HOUSE EMBODIED BY PEOPLE WHO LOVE GEMSTONES AND PERFUME

ORLOV is the story of gems, carried by the brand's founder, Ruth Méaulle, an expert in gemology, it is the story of Our Love - intensely, immediately. ORLOV is the immediate connection to the world of Beauty. A subtle and rare world, an ambiguous world carried by the inaccessible beauty of the real thing. A world that must be earned and meditated upon.

In 2009, at a chic, trendy Parisian party, Thomas Méaulle met a young woman with an unusual name: Ruth Sery de Solokou. He went over to her. She was stylish and audacious, shaking up conventions, and he nicknamed this feline beauty “The Black Panther.” He was fascinated by gemstones and perfume, and worked in finance. She was a diamond expert, a recent graduate of HRD Antwerp, passionate about perfume and had just moved to Paris. Thomas, attracted by her perfume, asked what she was wearing. Attracted in turn, Ruth returned the question, which led to a conversation about their shared passion for gemstones and perfume that lasted all night long. Next, she invited him to discover her world, the stones she works with and the jewellery she creates. And that was when Thomas found a lost diamond beneath a perfume box. He inspired emotion in her and encouraged her! He was the one who supported her, and together they created the house of Orlov (literally “OUR LOVE”), a symbol of their love for perfumes and gemstones.
