Paul Smith started out in Great Britain as a menswear brand. From its menswear origins, however, the brand has expanded to include 12 different collections dedicated to men, women, and their accessories.
In 2000, a Paul Smith perfume was introduced as another expansion to the brand, with Paul Smith Men and Paul Smith Women as the first scents. Paul Smith produces his perfume line under the Inter Parfums Company in the United Kingdom. Among the perfumers who have contributed to the Paul Smith perfume collection are Antoine Maisondieu and Laurent Bruyere.
