This case alleges that the defendants engaged in an unlawful conspiracy to fix, raise, maintain, and control prices, as well as manipulate the market and customer distribution for fragrances utilized in a wide range of products. These products include luxury fragrances, cosmetics, as well as everyday consumer goods such as breakfast cereal, shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, detergents, personal care products, cosmetics, and retail fragrances across Canada and other locations.
