Davidoff is a Swiss company synonymous with luxurious living. The man behind the name is Zino Davidoff. Born in 1906 in Kiev, Ukraine, he was the first of four children of Jewish tobacco merchants. Escaping the anti-Semitism that was pervasive in their homeland, his parents moved to Switzerland and established their tobacco business there. After finishing school in 1924, he traveled all over the world to learn more about the tobacco trade and in 1930 took over the family business and made it the international empire of luxury cigars and goods that it is today. Aside from being known for its famous Cuban cigars, Davidoff is also famous for its fragrances. In 1984, he launched his first cologne, Davidoff Classic, and two years later, introduced another scent, which was named after him. Perhaps his most well-known men's fragrance, Cool Water, debuted in 1988 and has since been one of the best selling men's scents on the market. The company eventually produced more versions of the cologne under the same name: Cool Water Game, Cool Water Deep and Cool Water Summer Fizz. Other fragrances include Good Life and ECHO. Capitalizing on its success, he launched Cool Water for Women and soon after Cool Water Frozen Perfume for Women. The company has also produced a women's version of the fragrance Good Life. Aside from cigars and fragrance, the Davidoff line also lends its name to fine crafted wallets, watches, cognac and coffee to name a few.
