MILAN — Ferragamo Parfums’ wholesale sales jumped 18.2 percent to hit 65 million euros, or around $88 million, in 2010 compared with 55 million euros, or about $75 million, in 2009.

 

The uptick comes on the back of a successful slew of launches, including the women’s scent, Attimo, which hit shelves with much fanfare in September.

 

According to the company, key markets bolstering sales include Asia — Japan, Korea and China — along with significant growth in the Italian and U.S. markets.

 

The fragrance arm of the Italian fashion brand — which currently accounts for about 6 percent of Ferragamo SpA’s turnover — enlarged its distribution network in local and duty free markets to 13,000 doors worldwide last year and is preparing for the launch of Attimo Men and Attimo Eau Florale in the second-half.

“We didn’t expect such growth in 2010 after the slowdown of 2009, so we are even more enthusiastic about these results,” said Luciano Bertinelli, chief executive officer of Ferragamo Parfums.
