Nine-month highlights by brand 
* Lanvin fragrances maintained double-digit growth (+ 11%) on continuing gains
by the Éclat d'Arpège (+ 14%) line, steady sales by the Jeanne Lanvin and
Marry Me ! lines and the launch of Lanvin Me in the spring of last year; 
*With sales of nearly EUR48 million, Montblanc fragrances posted strong growth
(+36%), confirming the considerable success of the men's line Legend, launched
in 2011 and now the Group's top-selling line; 
* Jimmy Choo fragrances also registered strong sales (+46%), now based on two
women's' lines, Jimmy Choo and Flash, launched early in the year; 
* The excellent start for the Rêve line and good performances by the First and
Collection Extraordinaire lines positively contributed to Van Cleef & Arpels
fragrances' renewed growth (+7%); 
* Boucheron fragrances achieved sales of EUR12 million, originating mainly from
the fall launch of the Place Vendôme line; 
* Finally, Repetto fragrances largely exceeded expectations with sales of EUR6
million in four months, reflecting an excellent start in several markets in
Europe, particularly in France, and in Asia. 
Nine-month highlights by region 
With 20% to 30% growth in each region, the portfolio's development has been
particularly sustained in North America, France, Western Europe and Asia with
noteworthy successes by Montblanc, Jimmy Choo and Repetto fragrances. 
Paris, October 24, 2013 
Philippe Benacin, Chairman and CEO commented: 
"The change in the Group's organization has balanced our brand portfolio and
created a new spirit of team competition. The launches of the Repetto and 
Boucheron Place Vendôme lines clearly benefited from this strong momentum that 
has thus positively contributed to our accelerating growth over the last 
several months. On that basis, full-year sales may exceed EUR335 million for 
2013."
