Jacques Courtin-Clarins created his eponymous Clarins cosmetics brand in 1954 when he was still a medical student. He noticed that many women were concerned about their skin, and wanted to provide a solution to their problems. Clarins began offering scented oils made from all-natural ingredients.
Clarins also offer fragrances that provide a refreshing and soothing effect in addition to their fantastic scents. The company cooperates on fragrance projects with many other companies including Porsche Design, Azzaro, Thierry Mugler and Swarovski.
