âWe took over the Coty business two years ago, and it was Paul [Marciano]the idea of ââpushing the product line into grooming, âsaid Jean Madar, Managing Director of Inter Parfums Inc.â We have a good fragrance business, but we wanted to launch it for Guess. We look at this stuff when the growth is exceeding expectations, so it seemed like the right time. “
Guess Effect will be distributed through the brand’s physical stores in the United States, as well as perfume stores in key markets such as Italy and Russia, and Douglas in Germany.
Madar, however, did not rule out the possibility of expanding distribution in the United States. âWe could go into retailing in the United States and Canada,â he mused. âWe’re now looking at the men’s grooming industry, and in the US it’s a $ 10 billion business, in Brazil it’s $ 6 billion. It’s a real market, men take care of their skin, and the name ‘Guess Effect’ is synonymous with ‘effective’, and men are looking for real results on their skin, âhe said.
To this end, the brand has incorporated ingredients of well-known heroes, such as caffeine, aloe vera, and jojoba oil in the products.
Leading the line’s campaign will be Ignazio Moser, the Italian cyclist – “Italy is a key market for Guess,” Madar added – and actress Cecilia Rodriguez.
