Marlboro is a brand of cigarette made by Philip Morris. It is famous for its billboard advertisements of the Marlboro Man. It is currently the best selling cigarette brand in the world.

Philip Morris, a London-based cigarette manufacturer, created a New York subsidiary in 1902 to sell several of its cigarette brands, including Marlboro. By 1924 they were advertising Marlboro as a woman's cigarette based on the slogan "Mild As May".

The brand was sold in this capacity until World War II when the brand faltered and was temporarily removed from the market. At the end of the war three brands; Camel, Lucky Strike, and Chesterfield surfaced and established a firm hold on the cigarette market.
