La Confiserie Florian : a family affair

More than a century ago, the adventure of Maison Florian began on the port of Nice. In 1921, the story took shape with the inauguration of the Florian chocolate factory, which quickly forged a reputation for its gourmet creations, even attracting the attention of the famous painter Matisse. A few years later, a perfumery was opened in Pont-du-Loup, before being acquired in 1935 by Parfumerie Fragonard, under the direction of Eugène Fuchs, its founder since 1926. In 1949, the establishment took on a new dimension, becoming the "Confiserie des Gorges du Loup".

Almost two decades later, the Florian chocolate factory gave way to the "Confiserie du Vieux Nice", becoming an extension of the Pont-du-Loup parent company, dedicated primarily to the art of chocolate.

In 1996, the story took a new turn with the separation of the family group's activities. The Costa family took over the reins of Fragonard perfumery, while the Fuchs family chose to preserve Confiserie Florian, perpetuating a family heritage steeped in tradition and know-how.
