法國Fragonard parfumeur 香水工廠


 

 

Fragonard是全球最大的香水廠,為於南法普羅旺斯的格拉斯,據說是多家知名香水品牌代工研發香水,如:外雙C牌就是其中之一。


 
自1926年創立以來已經有80年歷史的Fragonard是Grasse三大香水廠( Fragonard, Molinard and Galimard )其中之一。



從星期二到週日上班時刻都對外開放放供大眾參觀。


Fragonard在法國有三座工廠,分別是在Eze, Cagnessur-Mer 和Grasse

在巴黎市中心歌劇院區有門市部

我們參觀的是為於風景優美的Grasse 格拉斯這座香水廠.
 

Grasse 被稱為世界的香水之都(The world perfume capital)
 






 
因為工廠位於山區所以民眾大部份是自行開車前往

櫃台接待





 
等待入廠民眾不少
 







Fragonard從全球尋找有特色的植物製造香水,臺灣被選中的是Citronnellev 香茅這款草




香水需要由被稱為noise 的香水師負責調製,一瓶香水需使用二十甚至上百的香味調配,香水師有辦法從記憶2000至3000種的香味中找出最好的味道調製



實在是厲害!!





 
 
玫瑰花使用量最驚人,從650磅的玫瑰花瓣才能煉製一磅的玫瑰花精,所以玫瑰花精油才會如此昂貴。.




最著名的是本地特大玫瑰花製成的香水,據說最初是獻給工廠女主人的。因深受女主人的喜愛後來以女主人的名字Emile命名。好浪漫的故事!






因玫瑰花產量有限故產量並不多。




 
我們的導覽是位中國留法學生,因中國觀光客增加而獲得此工廠的導覽工作並嫁了個法國老公。她十分喜歡這種工作與生活方式。



生活在如畫的南法,每天在花香的工廠工作。這種有著陽光、空氣、花香的浪漫樂活人生與臺灣成千上萬關在電子工廠內拼經濟奇蹟的電子新貴的工作形態真是大不相同啊!








各式儀器

 



                                            如黃金般珍貴的提鍊香精



   工作人員安靜的工作不被參觀人潮影響
 




辦公室


 
 
 






 

以純天然的植物萃取而製成各種香氛、香精、香皂、乳液…等商品都依客戶需要製作包裝。



 




鴉寶寶香皂,芳香又滋潤,造型超可愛!!




亮亮晶晶的香水瓶
 



 


 


 



Fragonard特殊的銅色鋁罐可完全將香精與光線隔離讓香精保存更久



紀錄Fragonard歷史的圖片在牆上十分搶眼







販賣部收銀台

 
這是收藏級的高價包裝


 
 
戶外長廊陳列古董儀器




 


留住美麗的參觀之旅


 


 



工廠後面景象及花園





 



這就是當地的特產大玫瑰花

顏色好美麗ㄜ!


 
 



這就是有名的Emile玫瑰香精,味道已傳頌80年



與現代的時髦香水不同,玫瑰香味十分古典優雅,讓我聯想到中古時代的歐洲。 




這也是最受歡迎的永遠熱門款。我當然也選此款了!



這是隨身攜帶的分裝瓶十分小巧,可以將喜歡的味道隨時帶著使用



從此隨身可以攜帶南法美麗的花香了!

 GRASSE, France, Jul 16, 2005/ FW/ --- Most of us knows that Chanel No. 5 is almost 100 years old. But, how many of us know that the ancient Egyptians invented perfumes?

As part of their religious rites, ancient Egyptians used powerful scents such as turpentine resin, oliban, galbanum, laudanum, and myrrh as offerings to their gods.

So, how did this art reach Europe, specifically Grasse, a small town in the French Riviera where approximately two dozen scent companies here manufacture the fragrances in most of the soaps, potpourri, talc, after shave, cologne and perfume sold in France, and elsewhere.

Around 1500 B.C., perfumes reached Europe via the ancient Greeks who believed the magical and seductive powers of perfumes. But, while the ancient Egyptians favored heavy perfumes, the ancient Greeks used floral scents.

It was through the Roman Empire that fragrances and scented soap reached France. But it was not until the Middle Ages that Grasse rose into popularity as a perfume capital.

Already known for its tanneries during that time, Grasse established trade links between Genoa (Italy) and Spain during the 12th century. Together with the rise of violet, lavender, and orange-flower perfumes among noble and wealthy women and the arrival of the Renaissance wherein the Greco-Latin antiquity was rediscovered, recipes for perfumed garments and scented waters were reintroduced.

Lavender, which grew profusely in Grasse, also helped in making the town very popular as a source for perfumes.

Thanks to Catherine of Medici who established a fashion of perfumed gloves during the 16th century, Grasse merchants were encouraged to cultivate the aromatic plants tanners needed to supply perfumed leather to the aristocracy.

With the rise of France under the rule of Louis XIV (1643?715), Grasse popularity also grew as France changed from savage mediaeval ways to a more refined, exquisite living. French culture became one of the most appealing in the world.

As the Sun King changed the ways of France, he also changed the thoughts and customs of his court. So, as his reign drew to an end during the 18th century, the refined society's newfound olfactory sensitivity manifested itself through the unwillingness to tolerate strong odors.

Strong perfumes were used to mask the nauseating smells, which in turn gave way to sophisticated, floral scents that would become modern day perfumes.

Today, Grasse, although it has maintained its mall town?atmosphere has become one of the most important cities in France in terms of commerce, both as a manufacturer and for tourism.

Visitors can tour several perfumeries in the area. Fragonard, Molinard and Galimard offer free guided tours that give a bird eye-view of the creation of a perfume.

And though the guided tours cannot mention well-known labels during the tour, be rest assured that most of the world famous perfumes come from Grasse, though not necessarily manufactured by the perfumer a tourist is visiting.

Most of the scents that become famous are created in Grasse by an artist of aroma. Called "the nose" in the industry, the creator sits at an "organ" of hundreds of bottles, testing, sniffing for just the right combination that will sell.

At least 20 scents are mixed for a simple perfume--up to hundreds for the more complex. The nose is expected to recognize between 2,000 and 3,000 scents from memory.

 The recipe goes to manufacturers who can produce an essence in a variety of ways. One of the oldest is "enfleurage."

A method that uses beef and pork fat as extractor of the aroma, delicate flowers like the lavender and daffodils are flattened against the animal fat to mine its scents. The aromatic fat is then washed in ethyl alcohol to extract the fragrance.

Enfleurage is time-honored, but nearly obsolete, along with the even older method of distillation.

Now in Grasse aromatic essence is usually extracted by steeping the raw material in a volatile solvent, or through "fractional distillation" allowing producers to actually isolate the chemical constituents of essential oils.

The amount of essential oil defines the fragrance:

  • Perfume extract: 20%-40% aromatic compounds
  • Eau de parfum: 10-20% aromatic compounds
  • Eau de toilette: 5-10% aromatic compounds
  • Eau de cologne: 2-3% aromatic compounds

    How much raw material? Well, for instance, it takes about 650 pounds of rose petals to produce one pound of rose essence.
