“We are very pleased to have achieved another record second quarter sales,” said Jean Madar, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Inter Parfums.

He continued, “The 19% increase in net sales by our European based operations was driven by our three largest brands, Coach, Jimmy Choo, and Montblanc, which grew sales by 28%, 21% and 16%, respectively. Also contributing to the top line gains were our fragrance “jewels,” Van Cleef & Arpels and Boucheron, as well as fashion houses, Rochas and Kate Spade.

“The strength in the overall market, coupled with this year’s launches and brand extensions, including Jimmy Choo Rose Passion, Montblanc Signature Absolue and Explorer Platinum, Kate Spade Chérie, Coach Green and Love, and Rochas Eau de Rochas Citron Soleil and Girl Life, resulted in year-to-date sales gains of 23% for our European based operations.

“With respect to our U.S. based operations, we delivered a solid 42% growth during the second quarter with strong performance across most key brands in the portfolio.

“The most gratifying news comes from the continued success of GUESS fragrances which performed exceedingly well during the quarter across all geographies and was up 30% from the second quarter of 2022. This is driven by the sales of our newest pillars, Seductive Blue and Uomo Acqua. Second quarter GUESS brand sales more than made up for the first quarter logjam we experienced due to the ERP implementation. Of note, the significant growth in the quarter builds upon the 39% sales increase we reported for the second quarter of 2022.

“We also had strong sales of Ferragamo fragrances, which we have recently enriched with sister scents for the Signorina and Storie di Seta collections. Oscar de la Renta also performed strongly during the quarter.”

Mr. Madar went on to say, “Donna Karan/DKNY brands are also another big source of pride. They have climbed to become our second largest U.S. based brand in just one-year under our expertise. We have devoted the resources necessary to revitalize the fragrance line-up for this brand duo, including extensive advertising and promotional programs, while also establishing an inventory for shipment-ready finished goods to strengthen our relationships with our trusted distributors and retailers.”

Looking into the second half of 2023, Mr. Madar noted, “Once again, gift sets will play an important role in our consolidated third quarter sales. We expect to release several extensions with a strong emphasis on the Donna Karan/DKNY, Ferragamo and GUESS brands for U.S. based operations.

“For European based operations, we have a pipeline of releases, including new entries for the Karl Lagerfeld Les Parfums Matières collection and the debut of a new member of the Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire.

“Additionally, we will begin distributing the very popular fragrance, Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce in select markets.

“As planned, the Chinese market has not yet recovered its vitality and remains slow, however, the overall impact is marginal, and factored into our second half forecast. We expect a more upbeat market in 2024 for China.”

Increases 2023 Sales Guidance:

Michel Atwood, Chief Financial Officer noted, “The healthy fragrance market and ongoing consumer demand, combined with most of our brands outperforming and gaining market share, enables us to again raise our 2023 net sales guidance to $1.3 billion, up from $1.25 billion, originally communicated in April 2023.

“The increase in our sales guidance does not yet include initial sales of the newly acquired fragrance licenses, Roberto Cavalli and Lacoste. Robert Cavalli fragrances are expected to start shipping in November/December 2023 and Lacoste fragrances are expected to kick-off in 2024.

“We will revise our guidance for net income per diluted share when we release our full second quarter results on August 8, 2023. Guidance assumes that the average dollar/euro exchange rate remains at current levels, and there is no significant resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
