Fragrance house, Jean Patou has been acquired by UK-based Designer Parfums, who also create fragrances for Agent Provocateur, Jean Louis Scherrer, Aigner Parfums and Worth. Dilesh Mehta, Managing Director of Designer Parfums said “I am truly delighted and excited by this great addition to our collection of brands. We will re-affirm the Jean Patou heritage and credentials across our global markets and reinforce its position as one of the world’s leading fragrance houses."
The company has also said that "Jean Patou’s stable of fragrances will be faithfully reproduced in line with original formulations, bottles, packaging and imagery."
Jean Patou was acquired by Procter & Gamble in 2001 - the acquisition included Patou's Lacoste and Yohji Yamamoto licenses (P&G has since also divested Yohji Yamamoto).
