IN 1972, he decides to hand over the business to his son, Paschalis. Being also an active and honest businessman, Paschalis Merkouroglou manages to grow the business and become acclaimed for his work, continuing his father’s successful work offering oriental scents to the whole of Greece.
Today, the third generation of the Merkouroglou family keeps the vision of its founder alive.
