Thomas Fontaine, Jean Patou in-house perfumer presenting Jean Patou perfume miniatures




Jean Patou Parfums recently celebrated the opening of its newly refurbished on-site perfume laboratory, adjacent to the Jean Patou Boutique, located at 9 rue Saint Florentin, in Paris. Both the Jean Patou boutique and laboratory now occupy generous and beautifully appointed spaces in the same building of the original Jean Patou Maison de Couture, which first opened its doors in 1914.



To mark the occasion, Jean Patou Parfums launched a set of limited edition miniature fragrance bottles containing four iconic Jean Patou fragrances, ‘Joy’ (1930), ‘Joy Forever’ (2013), ‘1000’ (1972), and ‘Sublime’ (1992).


Mingling among the guests, were current in-house perfumer, Thomas Fontaine, and author of ‘Joy Forever’, and Jean Kerleo, the Jean Patou in-house perfumer from 1967 to 1998, and author of ‘1000’ and ‘Sublime’.


During the evening, concert cellist, Adrien Frasse-Sombet, interpreted each of the four fragrances for delighted guests.
