Today, Sephora is not only the leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores in France, but also a powerful beauty presence in countries around the world, earning the #1 market share of prestige beauty in the US, Canada, and France. From Paris to Shanghai, from Dubai to San Francisco, the “Sephorization” of the world is possible thanks to the 33,000 passionate Sephora employees who represent 33 countries and 2250 stores worldwide.
