Jacomo has its origins in the late 1960s. American James Kaplan and Frenchman Gerard Courtin met in New York, on 5th Avenue. Both men had a great love for art, music and design. Pooling their common interests, they created the fashion brand Jacomo (taking the ‘Ja’ from James, the ‘Co’ from Courtin, and the ‘Mo’ being added to give the name a musical touch) and opened a boutique where they offered their designs to the chic trendsetters of New York.
Their first fragrance launch, Eau Cendrée for Men, was launched in 1970, in a distinct geometric package, to great success. Eau Cendrée’s female companion, Chicane, was launched just one year later.
Fragrances become the brand’s main stock in trade after the success of 1972’s classic female scent, Silences (wich is still in production today), in the distinctive round black bottle. The company would eventually purchase production facilities in Deauville. Always with an eye for design, a series of successful fragrance launches in the 1980’s and 1990’s kept the Jacomo name in the hearts and minds of perfume lovers. Classic men’s scent, and véry succesful, Jacomo de Jacomo was launched in 1980. Women’s fragrances Parfum Rare was launched in 1985, in a distinctive trapezoid bottle, and was later re-christened as Coeur de Parfum..
From then on Jacomo launched many fragrances, for men and women. And now Jacomo is back! The American brand presents its new fragrances It’s Me for Women and It’s Me for Men. Jacomo It’s Me fragrances are inspired by smart-phone design and ideally portray that design:
It’s Me is the affirmation of our own personality, in a world where we tend to fade. It’s my life, it’s my love, it’s my friends, it’s my dreams, it’s my feelings… it’s me!
Jacomo It’s Me for Women
Jacomo It’s Me for Women is described as: ‘I am a harmonious blend of sparkling sensuality and warmth. My lively, colourful top notes give me a mischievous air. Before unveiling sumptuous heart notes where generous flowers welcome appetising notes of pear and dry fruit. My intense and suave base of patchouli, enhanced by iris powder, is wrapped in rich sandalwood, jasmine and musk’.
Jacomo It’s Me for Women is available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
Jacomo It’s Me for Men
Jacomo It’s Me for Men is described as: ‘I am vivacious and fruity, heralding a floral, aromatic, woody heart. My scent evolves towards an oriental base, enhanced by an ozone note. A beautiful, magical blend in the trail of patchouli, vanilla and musk gives me my whole maturity’.
Jacomo It’s Me for Men is available in 50 ml Eau de Toilette.
If Jacomo It’s Me gets the succes of Silences or Jacomo de Jacomo, I doubt, but one thing is for sure, It’s Me will make you feel different and unique!
