The Panther Group, a family story

The Panther Group was born in 2000 from the merger of Genlis Cosmétique, owner of the Cottage brand, and Institut Arnaud. This family-run 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.

Thanks to their creativity and dynamism, they have managed to make a name for themselves among the large multinational beauty and perfume groups in more than 40 countries around the world: Cottage in the world of bath and shower, Arnaud Paris in the field of face and body cosmetics, but also Christine Darvin, Carole Daver and La Closerie des Parfums, in the perfumery sector.

They want to provide consumers with innovative products, impeccable quality and an affordable price.
