Chantecaille is the eponymous brand founded in 1997 in the United States by a Frenchwoman Sylvia Chantecaille and based in New York. The brand focuses on the concept of natural herbs and its products include skincare, perfume and makeup categories. It is reported that since its founding, Chantecaille has been loved by many Hollywood stars and New York social circles and is also known as the “noblewoman brand” in the beauty industry because of its high luxury brand positioning.
