Lacoste made its first volley into fragrances in 1968, and the brand’s been upping its game ever since.
While executives at Procter & Gamble, which has held the license since 2001, would not discuss numbers, industry sources estimate Lacoste scents generate 230 million euros, or $310.9 million at current exchange, in wholesale revenues annually.
“The Lacoste fragrance business has been growing pretty steadily,” said Carla Liuni, vice president of fashion brands for P&G Prestige. “[It] continues to be a key priority for us…and has quite a unique place in our portfolio.”
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
