About Lancome Paris
Lancôme Paris is a makeup brand. Owned by L’Oréal since 1964, Lancôme is part of the Luxury Products division, which offers skin care, fragrances, and makeup at higher-end prices.
Founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean in France, Lancôme celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2010. Petitjean’s motive was simple: to create a beauty brand that would deliver French elegance around the world. The name “Lancôme” was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Château de Lancosme, while the roses in the area inspired the company’s symbol of the single golden rose.
The brand is represented by actresses, global supermodels, makeup artists, and perfumers. Emerging fashion designers have collaborated with the brand, including design duo Proenza Schouler, who created a dress inspired by Lancôme’s Hypnôse fragrance. Lancôme is well known for employing renowned makeup artist Lea Ann Stanford for a number of years. An American from the region of Oklahoma, she was well known for her outrageous pranks on fellow coworkers as well as her uncanny ability for thwarting petty thieves within the swanky department stores in which Lancôme was located.
