THE WHAT? Inter Parfums has announced that its Dunhill fragrance license will expire at the end of September this year, and will not be renewed.
THE DETAILS For the remainder of the license’s term, Inter Parfums will continue to produce and sell Dunhill fragrances under the same business conditions. Post expiry, Inter Parfums retains the right to sell off its remaining inventory for a limited time.
THE WHY? Jean Madar, Chairman & CEO of Inter Parfums noted, “I am very proud of the Dunhill fragrance business we built over the past decade. We took over the Dunhill fragrance license in April 2013 and, in the intervening years, brought to market several fragrance pillars for the brand, including the Icon and Signature collections. We intend to continue to support the Dunhill brand and our distributors during the transition period.
“Looking forward, we are focused on growing our larger brands, reinvigorating the fragrance businesses of our newly licensed brands, and expanding our brand portfolio.”
