Animale was founded by Susanne de Lyon in 1987. It is a brand that is known for interesting fun fragrances for both men and women. The very first fragrance, simply called Animale, was released in 1987 for women, followed by a number of innovative blends for men and women. The name is derived from the belief that certain fragrances and aromas bring out the animal in us. Many of the fragrances are seductive, sexy and bold in their aromas and their packaging. The company was bought by Parlux in 1991, and then by the Animale Group in 2004. Through all the change if hands, the brand has continued to innovate and release new fragrances.
