Hello French addict !
The story of Philémon 1889 begins with a forgotten suitcase in the family attic. It has a first name and a date on it: Philémon, 1889. On discovering the objects behind a life — a razor, a shaving brush and shaving soap — Jean-Luc Courtial and Antoine Fagot also uncovered the inspiration to start Philémon 1889, and today they honor their ancestors by reinterpreting male grooming rituals.

Who are you?
Antoine Fagot and Jean-Luc Courtial. We chose to reinterpret ancestral male grooming rituals by offering a line of innovative skincare products and accessories that are 100% male, 100% authentic and 100% French. We strive to make rationalism rhyme with hedonism. With its multi-purpose products that are specifically designed for male skin and hair, Philémon invents functional male grooming, with a reduced number of products on the bathroom shelf.
