Giorgio Armani has been called the most successful fashion mogul on the planet, and with his company currently turning over an annual sum of 1.6 Billion dollars, it’s easy to see why. It may be a surprise to many then that Armani is a relatively new addition to the world of high fashion, the company having been founded as recently as 1974. This was the year his men’s line of clothing appeared with a women’s line following closely in 1975. Armani design is known for its crisp lines, top quality fabrics and a chic tailored look. Armani’s beauty offshoot, called Armani Cosmetics, specialises in the creation and distribution of high quality cosmetic products as well as perfumes and colognes. Known the world over for their inimitable minimalist design, the packaging of Armani fragrances is always designed specifically to echo the clean, uncluttered design of other Armani products and are often desirable objects in and of themselves.
A little known fact about the Armani Cosmetics range is that it is actually manufactured by L’Oreal’s luxury arm of product development and not in-house as many might assume. Nevertheless they might as well be due to the fact that Armani has over the years developed a very fruitful relationship with L’Oreal who have proven themselves are more than capable of producing lines of cosmetic products that fit in seamlessly with the rest of the ever-growing Armani catalogue of products. The result of this collaboration has been an astonishing array of over sixty different fragrances, perfumes and colognes, going all the way back to 1982. The following is a list, in chronological order, of these Armani fragrances just to give you an indication how prolific this collaboration with L’Oreal has been in terms of unique products.
