In a surprise move, the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. is assuming the worldwide fragrance license of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group from L’Oréal, effective July 1.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Industry sources noted that the license, which L’Oréal acquired in January 2008 as part of its 1.15 billion euro ($1.68 billion at the time) deal for YSL Beauté Holding from PPR subsidiary Gucci Group, had two years remaining with the French beauty giant, although Lauder executives declined comment on that point.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
