The optics brand FAKOSHIMA was founded by Konstantin Shilyaev in 2013,
later including a niche perfume line. "Contemporary classic" is a neat and fair description for the history of the brand. This concept is reflective of
the confluence of avant-garde functionalism in design, scientific method and overall aesthetic.
Our first trial scent « Tear You Apart » was created in association with the graduate of Grasse Institute of Perfumery Yaroslav Simonov, and 30 bottles were produced in 2020.
FAKOSHIMA is feelings and desires captured in a minimalist design. Our mission is to impart moments that do not last long, with those that have a savour of eternity. Our works are the sophistication of both concept and execution that has embodied the classics, and it's where a new story begins. Besides, we are experimenting with gender identity. It allows you to be yourself.
Perfumery allows me to look beyond the traditional notion, and embody ideas not only through lines, shapes and colors, as I do in design, but as well share my deep inner feelings by the invisible impact of scents.
Our olfactory patterns represent an intimate story and make you feel and live it trough in your own way.
Even though your mind is predominant, internal impulses and overwhelming desires are always there.
Feelings do not exist to be experienced, but we live to experience them.
It is the reason why FAKOSHIMA perfume calls on the unconscious in the first place. Every single composition is a quintessence of feelings which are to be experienced over and over again. Even if they lasted only seconds.
