1895 - A Frenchman travels to Istanbul
Our story begins in 1895. Jean Cesar Reboul, a young French pharmacist, was traveling through Istanbul on his way to Trabzon to visit his father, who was working as an engineer. Istanbul, with its unique blend of old-world mystique and modern commerce, immediately captured his imagination.
The entrepreneur in him was awakened, and he found the perfect spot, on Rue de Pera in Beyoglu, to open one of Turkey’s first pharmacies, the Grande Pharmacie Parisienne, or the Great Paris Pharmacy.
1938 - Eau de Cologne
The Rebul Pharmacy quickly grew in reputation and prestige, and one product in particular helped to cement the Pharmacy’s place in the minds and hearts of its customers, REBUL LAVANDA. The story of our iconic cologne begins in 1938. Originally made from lavender flowers growing in Mr. Reboul’s own garden, Rebul Lavanda soon became the fragrance of choice for Istanbul’s gentlemen. It was a part of a distinguished man’s identity; a tradition that was handed down from fathers to sons over generations.
The legendary lavender
It’s use of pure lavender oils made it an attractive choice for barbers as well, who used it to pamper their customers, giving them soothing hair treatments that helped relieve stress. It was also a prestigious gift reserved for special occasions.
1939 - Rebul Pharmacy
In 1939, Mr. Reboul decided to return to France, leaving his beloved pharmacy in the capable hands of his protégè and business partner, Kemal. Kemal changed the name to Rebul Pharmacy, to pay homage to the mentor who had given him so much. Rebul, which was founded in Beyoglu 127 years ago as Turkey's first pharmacy, has since been continuing to create specialized products and formulas in its own laboratory to meet the health and beauty needs of its millions of customers in the most lively area of Istanbul. In 1981, the cologne’s iconic status was sealed as it was awarded the gold medal by the International Beauty Products Quality Control Centre, an accolade that recognised and affirmed our tireless dedication to creating fragrances and skincare products of the utmost quality.
