LAFCO—Luxury Articles and Fragrance Company—was established over 20 years ago when founder, Jon Bresler, quit his job as a lawyer to pursue his passion for body care. In 1992, Jon began travelling across Europe, foraging for hard-to-find specialty items and learning about how they were made. He supplemented his research with a self-imposed apprenticeship to study the nuances of alchemy and perfumery. As Jon grew fascinated with the rich histories of these disciplines, he envisioned LAFCO as a company that would actively participate in their preservation. LAFCO grew as Jon trained with internationally renowned creators of natural skincare and perfumes, and eventually imported their entire collections. He carefully maintained the spirit and integrity of every line as he brought them together to recreate an authentic European apothecary experience in his native New York.
The combined knowledge of the LAFCO team enables them to create authentically luxurious, exceptionally made products that enchant modern connoisseurs and amateurs alike. As they steer the direction and growth of LAFCO, they honor the history of the European apothecary and accent it with distinctly current points of view. Connecting tradition with innovation to create unique luxury articles and fragrance is the core of LAFCO’s past, present, and future.
