Who are these perfumers, these noses? Sculptors with test tubes, artists with labs, poets whose verses waft off the skin. We asked them to create a beautiful scent, to let their creativity and imagination run wild, to invent something exquisite and put it in a bottle—a simple bottle with a simple label. Because all the magic is inside.
We believe that perfumery is an art, and that art is slowly being lost. We created FR! to allow perfumers around the world to create the perfumes of their dreams—without budget constraints, creative constraints, or multi-level evaluations. To us, what a perfumer dreams of and creates for FR! is whole and perfect as delivered.
We had the pleasure of hosting Amélie Bourgeois in New York earlier this month. Along with perfumer Anne-Sophie Behaghel she spoke about her creation FR! 01/04 and shared 22 out of the 35 raw materials that were included in it's creation.
Such an interesting Master Class. Very educational and inspiring.

Karine Chevallier's visit was one of our most educational yet! She had such insights to share into the world of fragrance and really taught and shared from an artists perspective. Her approach to creating perfume was infused with passion and precision.
I really enjoy the master classes and special events that come along with membership in the republic. They offer a comfortable way to meet the creator of the fragrances and also interact with other like-minded perfume junkies.

A very special Master Class with Master Perfumer Jean-Claude Delville. He discussed perfume making and other sensory pleasures. What does it take to compose an accord that becomes like a 'secret weapon' for the man or woman wearing it? How did FR! 01/07 come to be? Why are perfumers so enthusiastic about FR!?
