Did you know that the word ‘perfume’ is derived from the Latin per (through) and fumare (to smoke)?
Long before the use of modern techniques, the first perfumes were obtained by burning woods, resins and other complex mixtures. Humans have always been exposed to smells. We can suppose that it was around a fire that our earliest ancestors discovered what smells they could produce by throwing herbs, leaves or twigs of different plant species into the flames.
Fragonard was named after the 18th century French painter from Grasse, Jean-Honoré Fragonard when the fragrance brand began in 1926. With nearly a century of history, Fragonard has become well known for their fine perfume fragrances for women, as well as their line of scents for men. Capturing the floral essences of the region of Grasse, these luxurious scents embody fine fragrance. The new Fragonard Vrai body care line features a mix of regenerating and nourishing anti-wrinkle creams and lotions in a clean, fresh scent. All Fragonard products are made in France.
Today, Jean-François Costa's daughters, Agnès and Françoise preside over the perfumery's destiny, and are as concerned as the preceding generations with continuing to build the company while adapting it to current market needs and desires.
