In 1916, hairdresser Charles Jundt took over the Manhattan beauty salon of the New York City Ritz (later the Ritz-Carlton) hotel.

He added perfume to his line in 1927 and in 1935 launched the Jean Nate line.

In 1963, Ritz acquired 80% of the house of Yves Saint Laurent. Ritz launched an entire line of skincare and makeup under the Yves Saint Laurent Beaute brand. In 1964 Charles of the Ritz merged with the Lanvin group and from then on was known as Lanvin-Charles of the Ritz.

YSL sold Charles of the Ritz to Revlon in 1987; however under Revlon, the line began to slip in image and after unsuccessful attempts to sell, Revlon closed down Charles of the Ritz in 2002. Many of the former Ritz fragrances are still sold under the Revlon name.
