Inter Parfums CEO Jean Madar commented: "We are enthusiastic about collaborating with this premier British brand and building the Alfred Dunhill fragrance enterprise into a major aspirational fragrance brand. Upon assuming responsibility for the brand, we will fine-tune the current fragrance portfolio, which includes fragrances dating from 1934 to 2011. The new men's scent planned for a 2014 launch will be supported by a distribution strategy that recognises and utilises Alfred Dunhill's luxury positioning, along with brand-appropriate marketing materials and a media campaign."
Eraldo Poletto, CEO of Alfred Dunhill, added: "We are proud to be partnering with Inter Parfums and look forward to working together to grow and develop our global fragrance business."
