S.T. Dupont is a French luxury goods company founded in 1872 by Simon Tissot-Dupont. The company got its start offering leather wallets and brief cases. The golden age of travel that began at the end of the 19th century soon developed a market for luxurious suitcases, trunks and travel accessories which Dupont noticed and jumped in to offer some of the era’s finest luggage and travel cases. Innovation in the company continued during World War 2, when they invented the first pocket gas lighter, whose improved design would later be patented. The company then went on to design a luxury line of fragrances and were introduced in 1998. They now have 35 fragrances to their name such as Essence Pure, Intense and Miss Dupont.
