Robertet, established in 1850, is based in Grasse, France, the self-proclaimed perfume capital of the world. It is an internationally-recognised, exceptionally-accredited, highly-awarded corporation that places heavy emphasis on natural products.

The Team

Claman is a people-centric company, investing whole-heartedly in both personnel and clientele. Members of our team have made the journey to the Robertet headquarters in France, gaining first-hand insight into the process of fragrance extraction and design. Thus keeping a firm grasp on international trends and the latest innovations. This ensures that we are always poised to put clients first by providing them with progressive solutions and outstanding expertise in choosing fragrances and flavours.

Clarissa Heyman – Director

Clarissa has been passionately involved in the fragrance and flavour industry for 29 years. She began her career at Chemserve where she gained invaluable knowledge and experience. During her time there, one of the companies under the umbrella began a partnership with Robertet and eventually expanded to become an independent entity. It was here, in this dynamic environment, that Clarissa’s affiliation with Robertet began. After 13 years of dedicated service and equipped with a vast knowledge of the intricacies of the fragrance industry, Clarissa decided it was time to begin her own venture…
And in 1996, Claman was born.
