Ferragamo is an established and iconic brand known for luxury products such as bags, accessories, watches, eyewear, and much more. Of course, the brand eventually came to be known for fragrances as well, but it would take time.
It started with Salvatore Ferragamo, who started making his first pair of shoes when he was 9. He moved to the United States in 1914 and worked there before being enamored by the film industry. He started to design footwear for those in the film industry and made a name for himself.
That said, it would take a very long time (long after Ferragamo passed away in 1960) when the brand would give fragrances a shot. The very first fragrance, Salvatore Ferragamo for Women, was launched in 1998, though the brand had been dabbling in scents before then. These days, Ferragamo is just as known for its fragrances as it is known for various accessories.
