The Panouge Group
Emblematic Scents Since 1947
Founded in 1947, under the name “Parfums Lavarenne – Paris,” we specialized in the production of essential oils. For thirty years, the company developed its own fragrances, perfumes, and Eau de Toilette. In 1984, the company underwent a significant change in status and name, and Panouge was born. This acronym stood for “Parfums Nouvelle Génération” (New Generation Perfumes) and represented the company’s aspirations to be recognized as a Maison de Parfums rather than just a perfumery company. With design products such as “Business Man,” “Unless,” and “Eau d’espace,” the company inspired several multinationals’ bestsellers, helping to create a prestigious brand reputation.
In 1998, Takasago, a brand that combined French and Japanese influences, gave birth to Masaki. This new fragrance line was born from the desire to create a perfume soley for a fashion show. It was such a success that a long-term collaboration with Panouge Group was born, establishing Masaki’s place in the world of perfumery to this day.
In 1999, Panouge Group acquired Isabey Perfumery with the goal of expanding its reach to a global scale. Their inaugural fragrance line, the Perle Collection, was meticulously crafted by hand in a grand mansion situated in a remote French village.
In 2008, Panouge Group associated itself with the prestigious jewelry brand Poiray in order to create jewel-like perfume bottles.
In 2009, the Jacques Fath brand was relaunched by the Panouge Group. The brand’s classic aesthetic was updated for modern audiences, incorporating contemporary trends and materials. The relaunch was a success, appealing to fragrance enthusiasts as well as more general perfume consumers. It demonstrated the enduring appeal of timeless style, capturing the imagination of new generations.
After years of dormancy, the Panouge Paris brand was relaunched in 2014 with a rich history behind it. The aim of the relaunch was to create innovative lines of fragrances for the market. This led to the creation of two collections of perfumes – Perle Rare and Matières Libres.
