Jacques Fath was born in France in 1912. Fascinated by fashion since his early years, the young designer opened his first Couture house in Paris in 1937. His unique and glamorous style brought 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.
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.
Cécile Zarokian graduated from ISIPCA, she was trained for four years in Robertet, at first in Grasse, then in Paris. She was still a trainee when she created her first 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.
Luca Maffei is a young Italian independent perfumer, born and based in Milan, working for his own company. Since childhood he was very close to the world of essences. Fascinated by the charm of raw materials and mysterious alchemy he entered a perfumer lab for the first time, at age of 22 he decided to explore this unique world. 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”.
