Connecticut trademark lawyers representing Parfums de Coeur Ltd. have filed a case against Victoria’s Secret Brand Management and its parent company Limited Brands Inc., alleging trademark infringement and other causes of action for Victoria’s Secret use of the trademark VS Fantasies and Victoria’s Secret Fantasies for among other things, eau de parfum. The case, Parfums de Coeur Ltd. v. Victoria’s Secret Stores Brand Management Inc., is currently pending in United States District Court in Connecticut.
Parfums de Coeur is a Darien, Connecticut company that describes itself as a leading retailer of designer quality fragrances and colognes. Parfums de Couer alleges that the Victoria’s Secret VS Fantasies trademark is likely to cause confusion with Parfums de Coeur’s family of “fantasy” trademarks, including Body Fantasies and Sexiest Fantasies. Victoria’s Secret has trademark applications for the VS Fantasies trademark currently pending in the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
