LVMH shifting all perfume production to hand sanitizer for France


LVMH makes many things. They make watches, including Hublot, Zenith, TAG Heuer, Chaumet, Fred, Dior and DeBeers. When they aren’t making watches, they also make perfumes for Dior, Guerlain, and Givenchy. But not right now. All that has come to a halt.

LVMH’s perfume production for Christian Dior, Guerlain, and Givenchy has been stopped. Those factories have been repurposed to produce hand sanitizer.

Bernard Arnault, CEO of the Paris-based luxury goods giant LVMH M?et Hennessy Louis Vuitton, made the decision. It was announced by the French firm on Sunday. The production and distribution began on Monday. The gel will be distributed for free.

Hand sanitizer is very effective against bacteria, but less so against viruses. Please remember to wash your hands every 2 or 3 hours and avoid touching your face.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
