Jacques Fath

Origins

Jacques Fath was born in France in 1912. Fascinated by fashion since his early years, the young designer opens his first Couture house in Paris in 1937. His unique and glamorous style brings him immediate success. Known for dressing the "young Chic Parisian ", Jacques Fath attracts well-known and wealthy clients. Hubert de Givenchy, Guy Laroche and Valentino Garavani - all worked as assistants in his atelier and later would form their own Fashion Houses. The perfumes’ saga begins with the launch of Chasuble in 1945. Later with the creation of Iris Gris and Green Water in collaboration with perfumer Vincent Roubert, Jacques Fath Perfumes become legend.

Our Concept

The spirit of Jacques Fath perfumes is captured today within the Fath’s Essentials Collection, its contemporary design and emblematic codes. It all started when passionate perfume lovers met: Rania Naim, art director of Jacques Fath Parfums, Cécile Zarokian, talented perfumer and Luca Maffei, rising star of niche perfumery. So while she was preparing the design of the Collection, Rania naturally offered Cecile to collaborate with her for the first part and Luca for the second.

Cécile's work was an enchantment: each new perfume creation reveals a universe taking senses away through different territories. Exceptional raw materials, such as Neroli or Grey Amber, used for the mythical revisited Green Water as well as for three other creations - Vers le Sud, Bel Ambre and Curacao Bay - are the signatures of this unique collection.

For Luca, the direction was different: to no longer rely on a classic pillar of the brand but to draw from a rich and varied olfactory panel, the most innovative and noble raw materials to create four feminine lines: Rosso Epicuro, L’Orée du Bois, Les Frivolités, Lilas Exquis - and also pay tribute to Jacques Fath’s " joie de vivre".
