Coty Aftershave & Men's Fragrance
Coty, Inc. is a century-old fragrance manufacturer that also produces cosmetics and other health and beauty aids. Founded by a Corsican who exploited his marketing knack to become, reputedly, the richest man in France, the company has experienced numerous changes in ownership and management over the years. Coty is now a subsidiary of Joh. A. Benckiser GmbH, a family-controlled German holding company. It is the world's leading manufacturer of mass-market fragrances and occasionally markets products of other manufacturers. Although New York-based, Coty registers the bulk of its sales in Western Europe.
