The story of Atelier Rebul begins in 1895 with Jean Cesar Reboul, a young French pharmacist, who was enchanted by Istanbul's unique blend of traditional mysticism and modern dynamism. On the way to Trabzon, Istanbul became his unexpected destination and the birthplace of his dream.
In the lively streets of Beyoğlu, in the shadow of Rue de Pera, Jean found the ideal place to open one of Turkey's first pharmacies: the Grande Pharmacie Parisienne. This pharmacy became not only a crossroads of cultures and ideas, but also a testament to Jean's entrepreneurial spirit and visionary thinking.
Thus, in Istanbul, Jean Cesar Reboul laid the foundations for what would become Atelier Rebul, creating a legacy of innovation and beauty that lives on to this day.
Kemal M derrisoğlu first approached Mr. Reboul about an internship in his first year of pharmacy studies at Istanbul University. Kemal wanted to learn at the feet of a master. However, Mr Reboul was uncompromising. To be eligible for an internship at the Grande Pharmacie Parisienne, the young man would have to learn to speak French. Kemal was not deterred. He enrolled in evening classes at the French consulate and returned to Mr Reboul the following year, armed with his newfound language skills and the same determination. Why do you insist on coming to this pharmacy? asked Mr Reboul, to which Kemal replied, I know you are a very different pharmacist and that is why I want to learn the profession from you. His decision paid off. In 1920, Kemal began his apprenticeship with Mr. rebellion.
FROM INTERN TO PARTNER
After completing his studies at Istanbul University, Kemal Derrişoğlu faced an important decision. He turned down an attractive offer from the government to continue following his passion in pharmacy alongside Jean. Their shared curiosity and love for the profession led to the development of groundbreaking products and techniques.
In 1936, this fruitful collaboration was sealed when Jean invited Kemal to become a full partner, which resulted in the renaming of the pharmacy to Kemal and Rebul Pharmacy. This move was a turning point and confirmed Kemal's crucial role in the pharmacy. In 1938, as a final tribute to his mentor and teacher, Kemal renamed the pharmacy once again, this time to Rebul Pharmacy, forever enshrining the legacy of Jean Cesar Reboul and their joint efforts in history.
In 1938, Jean Cesar Reboul created REBUL LAVANDA, an Eau de Cologne made from lavender from his own garden. This fragrance quickly became an icon in Istanbul, loved for its refined aroma and as a sign of status. Rebul Lavanda became an essential element in the great man's identity and a coveted gift for special moments, cementing the pharmacy's reputation and becoming a legacy cherished for generations.
THE REBUL PHARMACY
In 1939, Jean Cesar Reboul made the decision to return to France, entrusting his beloved pharmacy to Kemal. Now standing as a historical monument in Beyoğlu, this pharmacy remains an example of innovation and quality. It is a living testament to Atelier Rebul's long-standing commitment to health and beauty, and remains a source of inspiration and pride to this day.
The year 1981 marked an important moment in the history of Atelier Rebul, when Rebul Lavanda received a gold medal from the International Beauty Products Quality Control Center.
