Kind of worried about this. Look at what inter perfumes did to Boucheron with Quatre😞
Was that a good choice from Ferragamo?
Unfortunately, it's always about more profit.
And if so, then a perfume marketer - with two companies on two continents - pay more for a prestige perfume label licence ....

It's pretty interesting to know that Interparfums has two companies.
This also with different spellings - on two continents.
And both companies have their perfume portfolios Perfume labels that are marketed differently.
See the inserted screenshots with the respective brands of the companies.

There's Inter Parfums, Inc. - New York
Interparfums S.A. - Paris

It is not surprising then that some perfumes are not marketed in Europe. Actually a huge portfolio with many well-known brands. But to date not achieve a real mega success with a really special perfume account at companies (my personal opinion!)

Three now - they've created a new subsidary, Inter Parfums Italia - to oversee the recent license acquisition of Ungaro. I wonder if they'll shove Ferragamo under that too?
Well Grant, at the moment there is no independent Italian Inter Parfums website like the one in France.
If you enter in the browser, you will be redirected to
But it will take a while before there is such a website.
So there will be only two websites for the time being, even if there is a third company in the true sense of the word

And yes, I could imagine that Ferragamo will be on this side just like Ungaro - and other brands
hold by Inter Parfums.
