The company's story can be traced back to 1926 when Eugène Fuchs unveiled the Fragonard perfumery, which served as a tribute to the renowned painter who hailed from Grasse. Decades later Fragonard founder's descendants still manage the per- fumery, which marks one of the last remaining traditional family-run businesses in the Grasse region. Wearers can indulge in the scent of summer with Fragonard Paris' box of four Guest Soaps—a colorful, artistic box that is adorned with whimsical sketches of Paris land- marks. The scented soaps are rose, lavender, freesia and verbena.

Gentle and rich, the colorful soaps are loaded with essential oils and botanicals. The company's micro-soapery, which is powered by renewable energy, creates a collection of all-natural Bath Soaps that are sulfate-free, phthalate-free and hypoallergenic. The decorative black-and-white packaging is recyclable and boasts a retro flair.
