Scents & Elegance

Date: 30/08/2016


The Fouquet’s brand in collaboration with the prestigious Parour perfumery has opened an exclusive concession within Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris, where the “Fragrances by Fouquet’s” collection will be displayed, alongside an ornamental candle and a diffuser vase. Two exclusive products designed to complement the Fugue à Paris fragrance.


In May 2014, the Fouquet’s brand and the prestigious Parour perfume house collaborated on a collection of five fragrances, four scented candles, a dry oil and a body wash. The original fragrances in the “by Fouquet’s” range by Parour are rich in aromas that embody the tradition and sophistication for which Parour and Fouquet’s are well known.


This year, Fouquet’s and Parour are adding two limited editions to the collection; both inspired by the Fugue à Paris fragrance

Weighing in at 1.8 kg, the ornamental candle features chestnut coloured wax poured by one of the top producers that incidentally also works for DIPTYQUE. Complete with three wicks, it promises to burn and diffuse its fragrance to perfection. Its elegant, decorative pot with metallic platinum varnish and gold colour lid will enhance any interior, adding a woody and contemporary decorative touch. Presented in a black and shiny gold case adorned with a satin bow to match, it would surely make the ideal Christmas gift. Price: €230.


The exclusive limited edition 4 litre diffuser vase in Fouquet’s Corner has been designed by Juan Carlos Rustarazo, a particularly passionate designer fascinated by the luminosity and strength of the beautiful crystal he works with. Incorporating crystal, brass, gleaming gold, diamonds and cane, the vase ensures optimal diffusion of the absolutely delicious woody and vanilla essences in the Fugue à Paris fragrance. Edgy and sophisticated, it emanates that subtle French art of living, imbuing every moment with delicacy.


With these two exclusive creations, Le Fouquet’s and Parour have further enhanced the journey of the senses thanks to the quality of the materials, the potency of the aromas and the excellence of their savoir-faire. Available now from Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris.
