Simon Tissot Dupont hands over his company to his sons in 1919, Lucien and Andre, who, tading under the name of Les Fils de S.T. Dupont (the Sons of S.T. Dupont) relaunch the activity. The activity was focused on high quality travel cases and accessories. Highly qualified craftsmen are called upon and patents are taken out to protect industrial secrets. 250 workers and 17 separate trades are involved in the manufacture: goldsmiths, woodworkers, engravers, leather craftsmen, enamel workers, locksmiths, etc. Since then, Dupont went on to produce lighters, pens, wallets, watches, and of course, fragrances. The first S.T. Dupont fragrance for men and women was created in 1998 and was extremely successful. S.T. Dupont is a leader in high quality leather goods and accessories as well as other fine goods such as perfumes and colognes.
