    Interesting thread, thanks.

    Marc Jacobs Men is also made by Staff nowadays. But what's the deal with CCP? In this thread there was a suggestion that CCP shoes were made by Guidi. I thought they were made in-house.

    really interesting article. the report and the italian police exclusively punish the undocumented chinese rather than the companies that decide to subcontract work to these sweatshops.

    it's interesting that the reporter and the italian police blame the chinese for loss of italian labor, tax evasion, and unfit working conditions like they care, while the independent italians that employ an italian workforce blame the big corporations for hiring and increasing the demand for illegal labor to cut costs.

    it's similar to undocumented mexicans in the states. people need to divert their fear, hatred, ill will to the companies that are hiring undocumented workers to cut costs.

    Can anyone help me figure out which contractors are involved with fragrance production and who they manufacture for? I'm having trouble hunting for this information with Google alone.

    just heard from a government-related source that quite a few luxury brands are using chinese prison labour as semi-free factories to produce their goods! she's seen them in person but won't divulge which specific labels...

    There are 5 huge companies that create and produce virtually all mass-market fragrances. Is that what you're looking for?

    I'm more concerned with who produces for whom. I found one or two contractors but didn't recognize any of the labels they claimed to work with and so didn't pay much attention to them.

    The biggies are:
    -Givaudan (Swiss)
    -Firmenich (Swiss)
    -IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances) (US)
    -Symrise (German)
    -Takasago (Japan)

    Some other major players - Mane, Robertet (both French).

    The issue with asking whom they produce for is that it can often be confidential...I know for a fact that a not-so-great producer in the US cannot list certain huge clients.

    Coty is more of a licensor...they work with the companies above to produce their perfumes. For example, someone like Sarah Jessica Parker would sign a deal with Coty, who then hires perfumes from IFF to create the scent, then Coty markets, etc. Even huge companies like Estee Lauder don't make their own scents, and the only companies that have their own in-house perfumers are Chanel, Hermes, and Guerlain (and formerly Jean Patou).
