A beautiful case holding four magnolia-scented guest soaps
Made in Grasse, France
Shortly before the First World War that Eugène Fuchs decided to set up his own perfumery based on the novel concept of selling perfumery products directly to the tourists who were beginning to discover the French Rivera’s charms. Seduced by the magic of perfume, Eugene was an entrepreneur at heart. Parfumerie Fragonard was opened in 1926. Eugène Fuchs chose to name it after the famous Grasse-born painter, Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), as a tribute to both the town of Grasse and to the refinement of 18th-century arts. Similarly, the choice of name expressed his desire to run his business in accordance with traditions. \n \nThis spirit has been loyally perpetuated by the three succeeding generations who have run and are still running the company. At their instigation, new production plants and sales outlets have opened in Grasse, Eze and also Paris. \n \nIt was under the tenure of Jean-Francois Costa that the Parfumerie Fragonard went through a rapid expansion and modernization. As an avid art collector, during the 1970’s he amassed a large and unique collection of antique perfume related items that have both enriched the Fragonard and given the town of Grasse a new cultural dimension.
Today, Jean-François Costa's daughters, Agnès and Françoise preside over the perfumery's destiny. They are as concerned as the preceding generations with continuing to build the company while adapting it to current market needs and desires.
fragrance from Fragonard is one to truly remember, to love and enjoy.
