In 1904, François Spoturno moved to Paris, took the name Coty and launched his perfume business. François Coty was not only a professional perfumer, but also a politician, journalist, idealist, and millionaire, and to some considered a gentleman of mystery. Coty was one of the first perfumers to understand the importance of fragrance packaging and a beautiful bottle, and his business grew until he was one of the wealthiest men in France. He died in 1934.
