Inter Parfums sign Coach in 11 year deal

14th April, 2015

Inter Parfums have acquired the fragrance license for lifestyle brand Coach,  replacing previous license holder, Estée Lauder.

Under the agreement, Interparfums will create, produce and distribute new perfumes and fragrance-related products, including new men’s and women’s scents. Interparfums will distribute these fragrances globally to department and specialty stores and duty free shops, as well as in Coach retail stores beginning fall 2016. 

Victor Luis, Chief Executive Officer of Coach, Inc., said, “We’ve been pleased with the performance of our fragrance business since our launch. As our brand transformation continues to progress, and with Interparfums as our partner, we know we can leverage this category into a much larger global opportunity. Given Interparfums’ successful track record of cultivating and growing fragrance lines for fashion and luxury goods brands they were the ideal choice to take our business to the next level.”

Jean Madar, Chairman and CEO of Inter Parfums, Inc. stated, “Coach is an iconic brand focused on relevance and innovation. We greatly respect what the company has already accomplished in the realm of fragrance, most notably with Signature and Poppy, the brand’s well-established top selling scents. We look forward to developing new fragrances that capture the spirit of the Coach brand, and to taking the portfolio to a larger audience. With our distribution network, we have a great opportunity to build upon the success already seen with Coach fragrance by expanding the distribution globally and by capitalizing on the growing recognition of the brand in international markets.” 

The distribution of Coach by Interparfums is expected to begin in the fall of 2016.
