History of Antonio Puig
Founded in 1914 by Antonio Puig Castelló, the Puig name has been known and loved for over 100 years. Even after more than a century of business, the company remains family-owned and is now in its third generation.
It was in 1922 when the Puig name launched its original beauty product; Milady Lipstick. This was the first ever lipstick manufactured in Spain, proving the brand was not afraid to be innovators, even in their early years.
The first of the Puig fragrances came in 1940 called Agua Lavanda, a true landmark in both men and women’s fragrances. Since then, Puig now includes a combination of owned brands that have proved hugely successful over the years. This includes big names such as Paco Rabanne and Jean Paul Gaultier.
In 1946, Puig had grown to such a size that it was able to establish a new headquarters in Barcelona. Just two years later, Puig released another timeless fragrance, L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci.
The Next Generation
Antonio, Mariano, José María and Enric Puig Planas – second-generation Puig’s – joined the company in 1950 and over the next decade had huge successes including establishing offices in the United States and launching Moana, a leader in bath and shower gels.
The late 60s and early seventies saw more expansion including creating the Paco Rabanne Parfums division and establishing a subsidiary in the United Kingdom. 1973 cemented Puig’s sophisticated image with the creation of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, showing that Puig’s place in the men’s fragrance world was a strong one. This success eventually led to the Puig brand obtaining the entire Paco Rabanne business.
Through the years, the acquisitions continued. These included big names such as Carolina Herrera New York fashion division, Nina Ricci fragrance and fashion business, and also joint ventures with Prada and singer Shakira. In fact, the business has been so successful and admirable that Harvard University has written a case study on Puig.
Though hugely successful and working alongside many famous brands, the company has always maintained an ambition of creating quality products, having a successful business and continuing the dreams of Puig consumers.
