a beautiful piece of jewellery with a precious golden setting
"Fath de Fath" I could actually acquire more by chance while strolling through the net at a true ridiculous price.
This interesting flacon, which really looks like the one on the photo, was offered from a discount and I think the seller didn't even know what he had in front of him.
Everything he wanted to sell was far below the prices that would actually have been reasonable.

"Fath de Fath" reminds me of a painting; none specific, but it could already have an Impressionist as "father": the different scents flow harmoniously into each other like the colours there, forming an incomparable whole of fruits, flowers, woods, resins and wonderful aromas.
They sound together to a beautiful melody!

At the very first meeting I meet peaches: ripe, yellow, very juicy peaches that give off their fragrance generously.
These are accompanied by a basket full of black currant; this tart, in taste and smell a little biting fruit, contributes a pleasant counterpole.
Because mandarins - not too synthetic here - and ripe plums draw this fragrance composition back to the sweeter fruit side.
Bergamot, which always seems a little dull to me, brings a little calmness into the bright fruits, which here want to surpass each other in aromas.
A little green mixes quietly, as if on tiptoe: grass, freshly cut twigs and leaves? This "green nuance" is clearly perceptible for a moment, but is not sufficient to be able to assign it exactly.
Suddenly but appear with much pomp and not shy at all, the flower scents in this melange.
The white-flowered plants are, as so often, led by large-flowered ripe jasmine and the enchanting lily of the valley; only much later does tuberose with its well-known rich aroma join in.
The majestic rose also tries to dominate in "Fath du Fath", but is elegantly put in its place: it too must bend and remain in the text of the scent's sound image.
Strong dark purple heliotrope with its vanilla-like sweetness, stands next to the delicate waxy orange blossoms. These two get along very well!
It is amazing what a wonderful unity all these flowers that feel like solitary beauties can form here.
None of them pushes themselves forward, all play harmonically in this orchestra with noble scent nuances.
In this sense, patchouli and cedar wood also create their appearance; the two play with this fragrance probably in a league: they get along very well and are a pleasant ingredient to the previous fragrance.
Vanilla, which otherwise likes to play a leading role, also subjects itself to the general rules here: no special sausages!
So it contributes its warm, so much rounder aroma than the heliotrope, very well dosed.
For the spicy, slightly smoky components, Benzoeharz and Ambra now appear on the podium (to stick to the orchestral comparison).
Together with the already before present team Patchouli and cedar wood, now a certain stability comes into this nevertheless quite floating smell formation; a stability, which does good!
All this is skillfully brought to its climax by the rich musk:
The finale shows such a rich, noble splendour that one can only bow to the creator of this fragrance painting.
Because music and painting meet here skillfully: perhaps held together by the great genius of Jacques Fath!
Quite rightly this golden scent deserves its name!

Sillage and durability correspond to the values that were valid 65 years ago: fine and noble, this lavish fragrance accompanies you for hours.
Applied in the evening, it can still inspire in the morning: a fine, elegant touch is still present.
Not stale, not tired: no, more like the slightly melancholic smile of a woman who has just said goodbye to her beloved and looks after him in a pensive way.

"Fath de Fath" has proved to be a wonderful blind purchase for me: not only the glass flacon, which surely looks a bit futuristic for its time, gives pleasure, no, the golden content inspires me.
I got a pleasantly fragrant, impressionistic painting here in my house.
It shall be welcome to me from the bottom of my heart!

A shy, introverted beauty
This is one of the scents that I like more and more, the more I try it. I never disliked it, but at the beginning it was just pleasant for me, now it is definitely love. I like oriental frags, and also sweet scents, and this one is almost like a hybrid: Not really oriental enough to be one, and not sweet enough for the other, and I just start to realized now, this is where its perfection lies. It is a wonderful delicate balance, very refined, almost shy and introverted, as if she herself is not sure about her own beauty. She is truly lovely. Some find her to be similar to Jil Sander No 4. I really don't get that. I adore No 4, and she is definitely a flamboyant lady, out there, striking and vivacious. At least on me Fath de Fath acts more like a well mannered sweet gal that is a pleasure to have around. Isn't it weird how fragrances evoke images in our minds?

Citrus and Flan
I was lucky to be gifted a vintage decant and it is different from the current version sold on line. Much finer in structure, here the notes are exquisite.

The opening notes with some citrus remind me of a landscape in Tuscany, sun shine over dry fields. Both the current version and the vintage have a thick progression of sweetness that could become cloying if it were not for the softening effect of vanilla. Amber is noticeable plus a few more oriental notes, forgive me, I am not big at detecting individual notes. The scent is soft and wearable like a cashmere shawl, and if you have ever tasted the Spanish desert pudding called "Flan" ... that is the flavor which prevails throughout.

Modern classic
Fath de Fath sits somewhere between Rochas Femme and VCA Van Cleef. It's a big, vanilla fragrance, which I love. However, it's also a big white floral, which I don't. It's quite good nevertheless.

Fath de Fath strikes me as a fragrance that is modern but in a classic style. Highly recommend for sampling.
