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.

5 questions to the designer

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.
