Wearing Jean-Marie Farina Eau De Cologne, with its unique lemony freshness, is very distinctive. Many manufacturers have tried to copy the original Eau de Cologne, without succeeding. Its iconic Emery bottle is still handmade.
1727 : The original formula was patented by the Faculty of Medicine for its numerous benefits
The Jean Marie Farina Eau de Cologne was developed from the original formula for Aqua Mirabilis. In the times before daily bathing was the norm, its zingy, fresh citrus scent was used to scent the body. Thanks to its fresh, sophisticated fragrance Jean Marie Farina remains popular to this day.
The extraordinary tonic Aqua Mirabilis, was developed at the end of the 13th century. It was manufactured by distilling 18 officinal plants, all grown in Jardins des Simples, or herb gardens. Aqua Mirabilis was a remedy that could be drunk and applied to the body.

Originally, ingredients were heated and their distilled essences were obtained through steam. Today the art of distillation is finding the perfect alchemy between the fluid (pure water, alcohol and gas), temperature and the pressure suitable for extracting the essence of each ingredient. With this specialist knowledge, we obtain the purest quality for our natural essences.
Each of our fragrances, soaps and beauty products are enriched with precious distilled essences, all selected for their unique properties as well as for their sophisitcated and delicate fragrances.

The round soap is still made traditionally using the 'cauldron' method first mentioned in 1907 by master soap-maker Merkien Marseilles. The method ensures the ultra- smooth texture of the soap and requires four key steps and around 80 hours production time to make each soap.

ROUND SOAP

In 1879, ROGER&GALLET introduced the first round soap which allowed for a better grip and remained perfumed throughout. The soaps still come in their original packaging and are manufactured using the secret traditional cauldron recipe. The soap is made from natural ingredients.
