Parlux Fragrances, Inc. Receives Notice From Nasdaq

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Parlux Fragrances, Inc. (NASDAQ: PARL) announced today that on July 2, 2007 the Company received a Nasdaq Staff Determination Letter notifying the Company that its failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2007 (the "Form 10-K") constitutes a failure to satisfy the filing requirement for continued listing under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c) (14).

The Company today requested an appeal and hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to review the Staff Determination. The hearing request automatically stays the suspension of trading and delisting of the Company's securities pending the issuance of the Panel's decision, which otherwise would have taken place on July 11, 2007. The Company intends to file its Form 10-K no later than July 16, 2007, at which time the Company expects to be in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c) (14). At that time, the Company will request Nasdaq to withdraw its notice of delisting.
