We look forward to continuing to lead with an uncompromising dedication to a time-honored artistry – made using natural, superior ingredients.

Portrait of Charles Baudelaire


History of Baudelaire

The Baudelaire name was inspired by the poetry and appreciation for the finer things of 19th century French writer, Charles Baudelaire. The romantic phonetics of “Baudelaire” became the perfect namesake for the brand, while also conveying what we hope the brand encourages in the minds of our customers.

History of Baudelaire
