World-famous Fouquet’s brasserie in Paris – the haunt of many celebrities – has launched a collection of 5 perfumes, 4 candles and 2 bath & body products.
The debut fine fragrance library includes French Riviera, Rose de Marrakech, Fugue à Paris, Lune d’été and Jardins du Sud. For this collection, the Fouquet’s collaborated with the perfume house Parour. The delicious fragrance of the products was made by the expert noses of Corinne Cachen of Drom and Christian Dussoulier.
