Antonio Puig Aftershave & Men's Fragrance
In 1914, Antonio Puig Castelló founded the company which still bears his name today, Antonio Puig S.A. From its very beginnings it was dedicated to the sector of perfumery and cosmetics, but it was not until 1922 that it launched a product made by the company itself. This product was Milady, and it had the added distinction of being the first lipstick to be made in Spain. Although the company is now an international organisation, it is still 100% family owned. Antonio's four sons joined the business throughout the years and they eventually inherited their father's business empire.
The company only started working on its future expansion around the 1960's. It improved the quality of their products by building their own laboratories whilst still collaborating with other laboratories around the world, but this move effectively gave Puig more control over the development of their perfumes and cosmetics. It is a little known fact that there was even a collaboration with Paco Rabanne, which is when their first perfume factory was founded in Chartres, France.
One of the later but also most crucial events to take place was the contract signing with Carolina Herrera to create and market all her fragrances. The success of this ultimately spread across the fashion industry which then saw the first of a long line of celebrities forming an agreement with Puig for creating their personal fragrances such as Antonio Banderas. This prompted further growth and expansion which lead to more celebrities and brand names such as Shakira and Comme de Garcons joining up with Puig.
Antonio Puig is now an old and well-known perfume house with several distinct men's aftershaves and fragrances in their line-up such as the aromatically fresh Agua Brava (1968), the woody aromatic Quorum (1982), the spicy and floral Aqua Quorum (1994) and the spicy fresh Quorum Silver (2005) to name but a few.
