Milestones

Lalique Group SA, formerly known as Art & Fragrance SA, was founded in Zurich in 2000. The company initially focused on perfumes and then expanded into cosmetics with the acquisition of the Ultrasun brand in 2007. In 2008, the Group acquired Lalique, which has a long tradition of glassmaking and is synonymous with quality and craftsmanship, having developed its own specialized production processes over the last century.

Today, Lalique Group leverages its diversified portfolio of brands, state-of-the-art production facilities and management expertise to pursue its growth strategy.
