Davidoff is a Swiss tobacco goods house which was founded by Henri Davidoff and family in the early 20th century. During the political turmoil in Russian 1906, the Davidoff family moved to Switzerland and they opened the first Davidoff tobacconist shop in Geneva in 1912. Henri's son Zino Davidoff spent the 1920s in Central and South America, learning about the tobacconist trade. He returned to his family in 1929 and used his knowledge and experience to open a specialty cigar shop in 1930. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Davidoff expanded their name and reputation for fine cigars in Switzerland as it was spared from much of the destruction and chaos of World War II. Later on, the original tobacconist shop was sold in 1970, but Zino Davidoff stayed on as the brand's ambassador until his death in 1984. The brand was extended into perfumes, leather goods and accessories in the 1980s. The first fragrance introduced by the company was Davidoff for Men, in 1984. The Davidoff brand achieved remarkable success with the introduction of Cool Water, one of the first in the Aromatic Aquatic fragrance category and often imitated by men's fragrances in the decade that followed.
