Lancôme is founded in 1935 by Arman Petitjean. He was inspired by the French elegance that he wanted to deliver across the world. With his brand Lancôme he definitely realized this goal. The name of Lancôme was inspired by the ruins of the castle Le Château de Lancosme. It is surrounded by roses that are mirrored in the brands symbol of the single golden rose. In 1935 when Lancôme was introduced it started with the launch of five different perfumes at the World’s Fair in Brussels.
Soon after this Petitjean moved into skin care and introduced a multi-tasking repair cream that was launched in 1936, Nutrix. It is still available nowadays. In 1938 Petitjean introduced Lancôme’s best seller until the 60s, a rose scented pink/red lipstick. In 1964 Lancôme was taken over by L’Oreal. Nowadays Lancôme is a leading name in the luxury perfume and beauty industry. They are being represented by actresses, supermodels, makeup artists and perfumers over the years. Some of the big names that have worked with the brand are Isabella Rossellini, Kate Winslet, Anna Hathaway, Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz.
Lancôme keeps on having a great success within all areas of skin care, cosmetics and fragrances. They still develop new products and make sure women are able to buy nothing but the best in the market.
