Makeup also contributed to the company's good results. Guerlain continued to grow, driven notably by the vitality of its Abeille Royale skin care, its Aqua Allegoria collection and its Parfumerie l’Art et la Matière.
Parfums Givenchy benefited from the success of its L’Interdit perfume.
Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH, said, "LVMH has enjoyed an excellent start to the year, to which all of our business groups contributed. It is the creativity and quality of our products, the excellence of their distribution and the rich cultural heritage of our Maisons, fueled by their history and know-how, that enable the Group to excel around the world. We approach the second half of the year with confidence, but given the current geopolitical and health situation, we will remain vigilant and count on the agility and talent of our teams to further strengthen our global leadership position in luxury goods in 2022."
