Jacques Fath Paris was created in Paris, France in 1937 by fashion designer, Jacques Fath, who is viewed as one of the most influential designers in haute couture. Fath was raised in a family brimming with talent and creativity, many of which were fashion illustrators, writers and landscape painters.
Fath was very interested in the world of fashion and design, so he began creating haute couture and presented his first collection in 1937. Fath was a self-taught designer and honed his craft by studying museum exhibitions and fashion books. His influence cannot be denied as he was later a mentor to numerous young designers who worked as his assistants and apprentices, such as Hubert de Givenchy, Guy Laroche and Valentino Garavani.
Following his death in 1953, Jacques Fath Paris developed into an alternative brand by the house of Jacques Fath, aiming at a younger audience. The house discontinued their haute couture collections and focused on perfumes, gloves, and other accessories.
Jacques Fath Paris follows the trends and chooses an expressive style with their fragrances. Their first fragrances were Chasuble and Iris Gris, launched in 1945 and 1947 respectively . So far, the house presented several fragrances, including Jacques Fath L'Homme (1998), Yin (1999), Yang (1999), Fath de Fath (1953, reformulated and relaunched in 1993), Chasuble (1945), Expression (1977), Canasta (1950), Iris Gris (1946), Fath's Love (1968), and Green Water (1947). The spirit of Jacques Fath perfumes is captured today within their Essentials Collection with its contemporary design and emblematic codes.
