Coty was founded by Joseph Marie François Spoturno in 1904 in Paris, France. It’s been over 119 years now, it remains the number-one fragrance company in the world. But surprisingly very few know about it.

Constant innovation and unique bottle designs are their mantra to intrigue customers. In its journey of over a hundred years, Coty joined hands with many and as of today it owns a lot of brands, ranging from fragrances to skincare to cosmetics. But at the time of its origin, it only focussed on fragrances. Within the very first decade, Coty expanded its business range to include cosmetics and beauty products including hair, nail, skin, and men’s toiletries.

The top fragrance company of the world has changed ownership several times so far. After the demise of the founder Joseph Marie François Spoturno, his first wife Yvonne Le Baron took over the company. In 1963, Coty was acquired by Pfizer. In 1992, Joh. A. Benckiser G.m.b.H. of JAB, a German conglomerate, acquired the company. The Lancaster Group of brands was merged with Coty in 1996.
