[ needs update] Perfumes [ edit ] While the revival of the UK brand's fortunes in the 1990s has been attributed to the success of the FCUK logo, it has had mixed financial fortunes during the 2000s, reflected in its poor share prices in the UK.  After reportedly losing market share to rivals such as Zara, Topshop and ASOS – with some analysts suggesting its pricing was out of step with other competitor brands – its position improved in 2014.   As of 2014 [update] the French Connection brand had 131 stores in the UK and Europe.  Worldwide operation [ edit ]
The success of the branding in raising French Connection's profile led to similar tactics from other organisations. French Connection launched a trademark infringement case in the London High Court challenging the owner of "First Consultants UK Ltd", a computer company, over its use of the "fcuk" initialism. The case found that the Internet Domain fcuk.com was registered prior to French Connection applying for the UK Trademark and its claim for passing off was dismissed. Mr Justice Rattee refused to grant an injunction, describing French Connection's use of the initialism as "a tasteless and obnoxious campaign."   The company threatened legal action against the political youth organisation Conservative Future, which had briefly adopted the spoof abbreviation "cfuk" (short for "Conservative Future UK").

Other brands in group [ edit ]French Connection distributes its clothing and accessories through its own stores in the UK, US and Canada and through franchise and wholesale arrangements globally. The company became notorious for the use of the "fcuk" initialism in its advertising campaigns in the early 2000s. Calvin, Polo, and a dozen other houses that now haunt your local pharmacy or Sears already wrote the book on this, and it has never been a happy ending for me. Setting aside the obvious marketing silliness "FCUK" launched with, French Connection's Friction burns me up.

In 1983, her eponymous higher-end label was launched by the French Connection parent group and this was not sold until 2010.  Fcuk Her and Fcuk Him (2003) – Original women's perfume by Zirh/Shiseido and men's perfume by James Krivda. Other brands currently within the group include Great Plains, Toast and YMC. Former brands include Nicole Farhi.  Brand history [ edit ] Friction is not a bad fragrance - it starts out with citrus and musk notes that finishes into a decent spicy fragrance. It is generic and is a "copy cat" to many fragrances out there. The longevity, projection, and sillage are below average - lasting only a couple of hours close to the skin. The fragrance does offer flexibility or versatility as it can be worn to any event at any time of the year - just take the bottle with you to reapply (frequently) as needed. No compliments on this one thus far and it may not be worn enough to provide any follow-up down the road.
