Puig buy Penhaligon's and L'Artisan

23rd January, 2015

Spanish fragrance house, Puig, have announced that they have acquired Penhaligon's and L'Artisan Parfumeur from Fox Paine & Company, LLC. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  The acquisition will take effect as of today.

Penhaligon’s London, established in 1870, is one of the most prestigious British fragrance houses. The brand has a deep heritage and holds two Royal Warrants, a symbol of excellence and quality. Its most iconic fragrance is Blenheim Bouquet, created in 1902 for the Duke of Marlborough. The brand has its own retail network and a global presence.

L’Artisan Parfumeur Paris, founded in 1976, is a truly artisanal brand working with its own craftsmen to create authentic and innovative perfumes. L’Artisan Parfumeur operates retail boutiques in France and has a global presence.

Puig is committed to continue expanding its presence in the prestige perfumery category. This acquisition firmly positions Puig in the growing exclusive, high-end fragrance category.

The current team, led by Lance Patterson, will continue to run both brands.

As well as Puig fragrances, the Puig Group owns Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Paco Rabanne and Jean Paul Gaultier, and created fragrances under license for brands such as Prada, Valentino and Comme des Garçons.

        This can not be a good thing. Watch Lartisan and Pemhaligans level of quality take a Nosedive, There individul identities will be blurred as this becomes a conglomerate. Watch for reformulations across the board as Puig looks to recoup their investment

        This explains why when I contacted Penhaligons about their samples I was told the Shipping department was being realigned then a few days later I received:

        Our sampling program is currently on hiatus. No further details are available at this time. This cant be a positive thing.

        At this rate there will be no independent fragrance houses left. Are there any now?

        I'm not talking about somebody making stuff in their garage or basement -- but true professional companies with distribution in stores.

        L'Artisan seems a bit listless and Penhaligon's a bit confused, so perhaps this will help them.

        Somewhere in the middle of the earlier comments, I find this mildly disturbing.
