Lancome Paris is a an old French perfume house launched by Armand Petitjean in 1935. The company's name was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Château de Lancosme, and the brand's rose symbol was inspired by the roses that surround it. Lancôme originated as a perfume company, launching five fragrances - Tendre Nuit, Bocages, Conquete, Kypre and Tropiques - in time for the 1935 World's Fair in Brussels, Belgium. The company later expanded its offering to include cosmetics and skin care products for men and women. Lancôme joined the L'Oreal family in 1964, after which many of their classic and best-loved fragrances were produced, including Climat, Magie Noire and Tresor.
Designer Lancome has 156 perfumes in their fragrance base. The earliest editions - Tendre Nuit, Bocages, Conquete, Kypre and Tropiques - were created in 1935 and the newest - Rose Peonia - is from 2021.
