Puig to snap up Valentino next year.

by Grant Osborne, 19th January, 2010

According to various reports, Procter & Gamble are looking to end the agreement to create Valentino fragrances after disappointing sales. Spain's Puig; who are also behind the brands Paco Rabanne, Nina Ricci and Carolina Herrera; is set to take over from February 2011.

Procter & Gamble picked up the Valentino license from Unilever in 2003, when Unilever was looking to exit the fine fragrance business.

      It seems that Procter & Gamble does a really good job of dragging fragrance lines down and then ditching them.

      Valentino hasn't had much luck with his fragrances, they all seem to fall into obscurity.

      This is pretty big news! I liked some of the older Valentino scents like the original eponymous scent and Vendetta, but they seem to have lost their way in recent years.
