Coty was founded in 1904 in Paris by François Coty. Following its acquisition of Unilever's fragrances division (UCI) in May 2005, it has become the world's largest manufacturer of mass-market fragrances.

The company has its headquarters in both New York City and Paris, France. Coty is privately owned by Joh. A. Benckiser GmbH, the German holding company that manages the interests of the family of Johann A. Benckiser. The company was a subsidiary of Pfizer from 1963 to 1992.
