Freedom for Him
As Tommy Hilfiger says, “Fragrance reflects a person’s true spirit. It’s a lifestyle choice. Fragrance has come to represent the true essence of individuality and the ability to choose for oneself. (Distributed ad copy)
Hilfiger was born in Elmira, New York. He began his fashion career in 1969 with $150 and 20 pairs of bell-bottom jeans. He soon opened his own store. A self-taught designer, he specialized in creating clothes that people wanted but could not find. Hilfiger introduced his first signature collection in 1984. It was launched with a powerful ad campaign that essentially established Hilfiger as the new leader in men’s fashion.
Hilfiger and his partners, Silas Chou, Lawrence Stroll and Joel Horowitz, took the company public in 1992.
Among his most memorable products on the cosmetics side are Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy Girl and Tommy Girl for Women. Used as an any day, anytime fragrance, Tommy Girl Perfume by
Tommy Hilfiger is a blend of Cherokee rose, camellia flowers, black currant flowers, cedar, sandalwood, wild heather, apple blossom, mandarin, tangerine, Dakota lily, jasmine, and violet. Equally memorable is Tommy Girl Perfume for Women, which comes in a perfume and cologne spray.
