Design of the fragrance Rosa Tous featuring Rosa Oriol © Tous
While I was blogging for one of my clients, Penha Duty Free Stores, about their new fragrances I came across a statement of Rosa Oriol, the creative director of the Spanish (Catalan) jewellery house Tous. She simply states that if you believe you can be happy, you will be. As the blog of Tous says: “without a doubt the motto of a woman of our times, who has known how to turn her dreams into reality.”
At that moment I realised that I love my job. It is amazing the way my job invites me to read and blog about inspiring women and enjoy the designs of many fragrances.
Who is Rosa Oriol?
Rosa Oriol married Salvador Tous, the son of the founders of Tous, in 1965. Combining their talents, experience and creativity they started to design a new style of jewellery. Recognisable by the company’s signature bear design which was developed by Rosa in 1985 and is always present in their collections in different shapes and forms. The success of this good luck charm has allowed Tous to expand internationally. Salvador and Rosa’s four daughters joined the company between 1987 and 1992.
At present, Tous has more than 400 stores in 45 countries across 5 continents. Although jewellery is still the company’s core-business, Tous also produces a broad range of accessories, such as bags, watches, fragrances, eyeglasses, textiles and small leather goods.
