The Panther Group, a family story

The Panther Group was created in 2000 from the merger of the companies Genlis Cosmétique, which owns the Cottage brand, and Institut Arnaud. This family SME located in Gironde near Bordeaux is the fruit of the passion of two brothers, Antoine and Hervé Madrid, for the perfume and beauty sector.
By dint of creativity and dynamism, they have made a name for themselves among the large multinational beauty and perfume groups across more than 40 countries around the world: Cottage in the Universe bath and shower, Arnaud Paris in the field of cosmetic face and body care, but also Christine Darvin, Carole Daver and La Closerie des Parfums, in the perfume sector.
With high standards, they wish to provide consumers with innovative products, impeccable quality and affordable price.
