Coty is a beauty brand founded by François Coty in 1904. Initially a secretary, he studied perfumery under a local pharmacist and begin what he hoped would be a revolution in the fragrance industry, which had changed little since the 19th century. Coty's first fragrance, La Rose Jaqueminot, was introduced in 1904, and made Coty a millionaire.
Coty operates under two divisions today: Coty Beauty and Coty Prestige, offering fragrances at every price point through almost 40 separate branches. Coty is an old perfume house having almost 100 fragrances in its portfolio. The earliest edition was created in 1905 and the newest is from 2009.
