Susan Camille was the daughter of an agriculture teacher and newspaper editor. She grew up in small towns throughout rural Idaho. From her early childhood, such appreciation of all plant types contributed to her philosophy that flowers and weeds are nature’s helpers to aid and heal us.
As a young adult, Susan spent eight years traveling through Europe, living the life of an artist. Much of her time was spent studying art history and techniques, while learning how to make painting supplies from scratch and diving further into her herbal studies.
Equipped with a lifetime of experience gathering information on botany, extracting, and creating exquisite fragrances, Susan moved back to Idaho in 1986 to start Camille Beckman. Creating work for a forgotten demographic, she hired mothers who wanted to use their hands for creative work and provide additional income for their families.
Susan marries Foad Roghani, an engineer from Iran, in their home in Boise, Idaho. Susan Camille Beckman becomes Susan Camille Roghani.
Susan and Foad’s daughter Roshan (now Camille Beckman's VP) is born in Boise, Idaho. Susan launches her namesake Camille Fragrance the same year, eventually becoming our all-time best seller.
Camille Beckman officially opens the doors of their first company-owned storefront, the Rose Cottage Giftshop in the Boise Towne Square Mall.
From giftshops and boutiques to hospitals and spas, Camille Beckman products can be found in almost every town across the United States.
Camille Beckman becomes the best-selling personal care brand in the gift industry - a title it held for over 18 years.
The company becomes profitable and the Camille Beckman foundation is started to help women, children and forgotten causes.
As the company grows, our operations burgeon between eight different buildings in Boise and the need comes to consolidate and create a permenant home. After searching for years, the perfect piece of energy charge farmland in Eagle, Idaho appears. Complete with an artesian well, acres of gardens and a 105,000 sqft production facility, we are dedicated to nurturing our little piece of the planet.
Susan and Foad read '3 cups of tea' by Greg Martenson and pledge their efforts to building schools for girls in war-torn regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Susan Camille meets Dr. Geoff Williams, a plastic surgeon who has dedicated his life to helping burn victims and providing cleft palette surgeries to children in the developing world. Together, we fund a smile a day.
Susan's daughter Roshan Jihan joins the company full-time, placing an emphasis on organic research, company unity and developing new products and foundation initiatives.
The Chateau des Fleurs is built next to the Camille Beckman factory. Weekly tea, a promise Susan made her customers for years, is served every Wednesday along with nightly dinner made with ingredients from our on-site gardens. Learn more at www.chateuaeagle.com.
