More > Frédéric-Charles Bargone (27 April 1876, Lyon – 21 June 1957, Paris), was a French author of novels set in such exotic locations as Istanbul, Saigon, and Nagasaki. One of his novels, Les civilisés (The Civilized) won the Prix Goncourt for 1905. He was elected to a chair at the Académie française on 26 March 1935. Initially, however, he imitated his father, an infantry colonel who served in the French colonies: enlisting with the naval academy in 1894, he was made lieutenant in 1906 and was promoted to captain during 1918. He resigned the next year to concentrate on his writing career.His works have largely fallen from favour, even among French readers.Perhaps the best known reference to Farrère today is the perfume "Mitsouko" by the long-lived perfumer Guerlain.
