Faîr Parfum

February 03, 2021


Gifted for review! 
 So I’m a tiny bit obsessed with fragrances at the moment. I like nothing better than opening a brand new bottle of perfume and to try that very first spritz. (Which in my opinion is always the best!) Finding the ideal one that suits your skin can be tricky and I love the ideal of finding a fragrance that if you spray it once you don’t have to keep applying it throughout the day. 

That brings me nicely onto Faîr Parfum.

Faîr Parfum is unlike any fragrance that is available. With good values comes good products and with an amazing back story. So you guys know how much a love a brand back story and this one contains a love story as well. (which I completely love) 

The love story started in the summer of 1884 in Grasse in France. Francis who was a local aristocratic fell in love with a Russian dancer Anna Karpova. 

Francis married Anna even though his father didn’t approved. This led him to be disowned by his father and Francis was left penniless and homeless but with the lady who he loved. (Which is worth everything if you ask me!!) 

To make ends meet and to rebuild his life Francis spent his evenings working as a perfumer's assistant. By 1888 Francis had made enough money to set up in his own business and Faîr Parfum was born. 

As well as producing amazing perfumes workers would be paid fair wages and profits would be used to educate the workers children.  

Faîr Parfum became very popular in French high society and in 1885 Le Club 1888 was established. This was a perfume connoisseurs' private members' club. Francis had used all his connections and his finances to produce his sought after scents that were exclusive and limited.  Taking a break during the war in 1914 and since Since 1988, Faîr Parfum has been led by Francis' grandson, Phillipe. Phillipe took over from his father, Jean-Honore and is in charge of designing new perfumes for Le Club members. Today the perfumes are all hand crafted in France including flower picking, maceration, bottling to hand packaging with 25% concentration which is the maximum percentage of essential oils allowed under IFRA regulations.

The perfumes are made using traditional methods with the unique 22-plate filtration process makes sure that any impurities are removed, leaving behind only the purest essential oils. In fact Faîr is the last remaining completely hand-crafted perfume business in the world. 

Faîr Parfum still hold the same values as they did in 1885 with the whole company built on fairness. With fairness to the environment, using recycable materials, sustainable ingredients and no animal testing. 

The brand have launch the first online collection cutting out distributors and retailers and using the generosity of Le Club members (who help design the signature scents) to offer a premium perfume at an affordable price. With four luxury fragrances that are available. These include Dawn Rose, Bisou, Royale, and Gallant.

So I was lucky enough to be able to try out a couple of the brands fragrances direct from the perfumery, Dawn Rose and Bisou.

Dawn Rose Fragrance has the Top notes of honey pomelo and rose. Heart notes of clove and vetiver. Base notes of patchouli and suede. 

Bisou has the Top notes of black pepper, bergamot and cardamom. Heart notes of jasmine, violet and styrax. Base notes of cedarwood, patchouli and Ceylonese sandalwood.


Both the packaging and bottles are so beautiful and the Bisou bottle is so pretty and would look fabulous on any dressing table. 

Both fragrances are so long lasting and I’m guessing it’s the natural ingredients and the essential oils that make this fragrance so long lasting. Only a few spritz will last you all day. In fact it’s one of the longest smelling fragrances I’ve ever tried and not like any other perfume that is available. 


Both the fragrances smell amazing and contains the fragrance notes that I love. They smell so expensive and heavy but not overpowering and would be perfect for an evening out.(When that is possible)  I love the fact that these are ethical, substantial and traditional french perfumes that make you feel like you have stepped back in time to the romance of the late 1800’s  

I will leave you the link below so you can check out the brand for yourself.

Until next time

  2. Thank you for your insightful article. It so so refreshing to see a brand that has not been absorbed by the corporate clones. Perfumery is so commercialised that even 'experts' don't fully know what pure perfumery is. I have Bisou and Dawn Rose from Fair, they are truly out of this world.
