When I googled Weruska & Joel, who own many well known italian brands such as Lancetti and Pino Silvestre, their website says, Permanently Closed (?)
Also, there are many of their brands products suddendly for sale on open air markets here in France.
Can anyone verify this ?
I would be surprised if no-one took over these established brands.
It would be a shame if it were the end of Pino Silvestre and its flankers...

If their website says permanently closed, I'd have no reason to doubt it.
Yes, although it shows a photo of their warehouse address, so I thought maybe they have changed the warehouse address to another location ?

Re: pino silvestre, I never understood the exact ownership/rights. Some of them belong to Mavive, which I think is the firm founded by the original perfumer of pino silvestre, and which is still alive with several perfumes.

But it's possible that weruska and joel is no more. of course the brand names that they own (if any) could be purchased by others.
