La Perla is internationally acclaimed as the leader in fine lingerie, recognised for their exquisite level of taste, sophistication and quality, unparalleled by any other.
SAS & Company signed the distribution contract for the UK and Eire in June 2011. Following the launch of La Perla's Limited Edition ‘Divina Gold’ fragrance in Harrods, our aim continues to be to build the existing fine fragrance lines within the brand portfolio.
La Perla is the internationally acclaimed leader in fine lingerie. Defined by artistic mastery, steeped in historical traditions of culture and craftsmanship, and notorious for their uncompromising perfection, La Perla has been underpinning the most cultivated and sophisticated women of the world since their birth in the mid 20th century.
The Italian designer Ada Masotti established the company in 1954. Operating from a tiny workshop in Bologna, Masotti simply used top quality fabrics to create exclusive and select underwear focusing initially on corsetry. She intimately appreciated and demonstrated an uncanny anticipation of women's desires and body shape, designing a collection of lingerie that flawlessly complemented Christian Dior's "New Look", a major fashion trend of the time.
The company gained its reputation by designing lingerie for stylish modern women who took pleasure from the poise that La Perla's sought-after under and outerwear inspired. Under the direction of Dr. Alberto Masotti during the 60s and 70s, Gruppo La Perla built up a standing for lingerie that was distinguished for its beautiful and crafted style. Most items incorporated handmade lace and embroidery, fashioned and integrated into a collection that included negligees, petticoats, chemises and separates. La Perla’s richly seductive perfume collection sumptuously compliments the lingerie range.

La Perla Classic - A Timeless Fragrance Since 1987
In 1987, Pierre Wargnye created a timeless scent that exquisitely translated the La Perla Lingerie values into the world of fragrances. The perfumer’s genius was to incorporate ingredients suggesting an intense sensuality.
The precise choice of osmanthus as a floral top note has contributed to differentiating La Perla Classic from the majority of other fragrances, blending more traditional flowers such as jasmine and orange blossom. Spices such as cardamom and pepper also play an important role in La Perla Classic‘s originality and enhance the personality of Pierre Wargnye’s creation.
Beyond the floral power of osmanthus and the magnetic freshness of cardamom and pepper, the fragrance was built on an extremely captivating patchouli and sandalwood dry down, making it a surprising chypre in a market, then, dominated by floral and oriental fragrances.
With its timeless signature, La Perla Classic remains an original and unforgettable creation.
