Brand & Perfume History

Marc Jacobs launched his credible fashion line in 1984, with two brand messages- a love of fashion and a commitment to creating the quality that he had envisioned for clothes. Through his introduction to the world of fashion, Jacobs heightened his love affair with fashion and really explored the innovative lines between traditional fashion and creativity, which his fashion shows began to really showcase and put out there.

In 2001, Marc by Marc Jacobs was established, an international complete line with the addition of accessories, beauty and fragrance. Marc ensured to make this new line a conscious one, where he could meet the newer generations that are sensitive to fashion, world politics and humanitarianism. Despite the conscious efforts, he always kept his rebellious side throughout, committed to owning his own authentic flair. Through his work, he has excavated relationships with over 75 charities all over the world, using his line to offer more than just fashion, but a message to the world. 

Despite his own fashion line responsibilities, Marc actually also took the role of fashion director for Louis Vuttion from 1997-2013 as well.

2001 was the first year that fragrances began to become an iconic feature of the fashion label Marc Jacobs. The first fragrance was a female fragrance called, Marc Jacobs for women. The following year, Jacobs saw it was only right to further the perfume fragrance investment by introducing a male mimic of the female fragrance. In 2006, more was created, however, with a gender fluid twist. There was a collection of unisex colognes that were introduced, and these emphasized new and exciting notes combined together, such as Fig and Cucumber. 

The popular scent Marc Jacobs Daisy was then launched, and the campaigns and marketing efforts of this perfume, really put Marc Jcobs perfume on the map. Following on from the launch of one of the most popular sweet scents introduced, Marc Jacobs now has 111 perfumes to his name and counting.
