The Marciano brothers, originally from the south of France, founded Guess in 1981, and it is now a powerhouse in over 80 countries. Almost overnight, it became shorthand for a hip, cool, and daring way of life. Guess has encouraged consumers to daydream through its iconic and enduring ad campaigns, which helped launch the careers of several now-famous models. The company rode off the fashion industry’s ups and downs of the 1990s and has successfully relaunched itself to the young market in the 21st century.
In the late 1980s, Guess collaborated with Revlon to launch their first perfume, “Original” Guess for women. They now have 42 fragrances for both men and women. The first came out in 1990; the most recent is in 2022. James Bell, Clement Gavarry, Firmenich, Bruno Jovanovic, and dozens of other renowned perfumers contributed to the creation of Guess fragrances.
Guess has become an empire of recognizable fragrances thanks to its timeless advertising campaigns that have encouraged consumers to let their imaginations run wild.
