Since 2010, the luxury Roman fashion label’s cosmetics products were developed by Catalan group Puig, which had taken over from Procter & Gamble.

Nicolas Hieronimus, Deputy CEO of L’Oréal, said “We are thrilled to have been granted the license
of Maison Valentino. With its unique combination of prestige and modernity, Valentino definitely will appeal to millennial consumers around the globe and ideally complements our brand portfolio.”
Valentino was founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti in Rome, and in 2012 it was acquired by the Qatari royal family’s investment firm Mayhoola. The label is distributed via 175 directly owned stores and 1,500 multibrand retailers in some 100 countries. In 2017, it generated a revenue of €1.164 billion, up 5%.
