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. 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.
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, the rising star of niche perfumery. While Rainia was preparing the design of the Collection, she naturally offered Cecile to collaborate with her for the first part and Luca for the second.
La Parfumista is the official distributor of Jacques Fath Parfums in the BENELUX & DACH region.
A Woody Marine scent. An escapade on the deep Blue Ocean. Wind caresses on the face, marine notes in the air, sensations of freedom and exaltation. Curacao Bay is a voyage to the blue horizon. The natural Grey Amber infusion, rare, with the iodine facets, confers to this perfume. Curacao Bay is an evocative name for a truly warm oceanic cocktail of scents.
“Red Shoes” is the name of 1948 ballet movie for which Jacques Fath designed the fabulous costumes of prima ballerina, Moira Schearer. In 1950, Fath designed a sumptuous red silk dress with the same name, worn by model Bettina. Blue Ginger and Pink pepper evoke the cold and metallic colors of the silky dress. Flamboyant Rose Damascena absolute highlights Patchouli.
The name Velours Boisé (woody velvet in English) evokes this unique fabric with sensual touch Jacques Fath frequently used to sublimate his evening gowns. It also evokes the winter season, this particular warm and friendly atmosphere. A voluptuous New Caledonia Sandalwood (extremely warm, sweet, with a rich woody aroma) gives structure to the fragrance.
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”.
