In GUCCI GUILTY, the latest fragrance conceived by Creative Director Frida
Gianini, this woman discovers the very scent of defiance. Young, audacious,
discerning, the wearer of Gucci Guilty is a heroine for our age: a 21st century

A warm yet striking oriental floral with top notes of mandarin and pink pepper,
middles notes of peach, lilac and geranium and base notes of amber and

In T h e h i r l
Beau t y W
In Beauty Fashion this month, our coverage swings from a walk on the line side to retail-hopping to glamorous beauty
industry events.

Lord & Taylor’s Fifth Avenue flagship in New York City has had a complete makeover, and we walked through
the beauty floor with Barbara Zinn-Moore, the retailer’s Senior Vice President and General Merchandise Manager for
Cosmetics and Home. We also attended the sparkling opening night party for the store’s “ultimate facelift.”

Fragrance was the topic of choice for many events in this issue. The Fragrance Foundation; organized an Insider’s
Breakfast hosted by The Estée Lauder Companies’ Senior Vice President and General Manager Carol Russo and held
its annual Autumn Harvest, where fragrances, wines and food were paired by a Perfumer and a Chef to complement
each other. Six Perfumers from Givaudan participated in the Six Scents Parfums project, in which they collaborated
with Fashion Designers to build six olfactory interpretations. Cosmetic Executive Women’s members and guests
learned about “The Art of Fragrance” from The Estée Lauder Companies’ Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Devel-
opment Trudi Loren and Givaudan’s Executive Perfumer Calice Becker. We sniffed scents with the Sniffapaloozas as
they traveled around Manhattan, from uptown to downtown, for their Fall Ball.

We experienced the high-octane glamour at The Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars, where fashion and
beauty luminaries were honored.

Building a beauty business was the topic of our profile on Laura Geller, the Founder and CEO of Laura Geller Beauty
Ingenuity. The Makeup Artist turned beauty entrepreneur and QVC star shares her experience in developing her
products and her vision for taking the business to the next level.

Beauty Fashion’s Foreign Correspondent Lorraine Wilson-Morris gives us an overview of the highly successful
Perfume Diaries at London’s Harrods. Regional Correspondent Mary Sit covers the opening of Stage Stores’ new
Beauty Bar at the retailer’s Palais Royal in Katy, Texas.

As we close out 2010, it is time to reflect on our blessings this holiday season. I thank all of you for being part of our
Beauty Fashion family and wish you a very happy New Year.

Fragrant Notes

‘Tis the season for holiday shopping, and The Fragrance Foundation is capitalizing on customer
traffic. They have added a new element to the “One Drop Changes Everything” fragrance
awareness campaign by attracting holiday shopping crowds with new, telephone kiosk
placements strategically located across midtown Manhattan which began November 19. Forty
kiosks are carrying the iconic atomizer silhouette.
“In our ongoing effort to support the category, we felt that the striking visibility of the creative

Here are new fragrances to tempt holiday shoppers.

JT Brands, the City of Beverly Hills and the BH Chamber of Commerce
have teamed up to launch a Fragrance and Beauty Collection that has
the official endorsement of the City of Beverly Hills. After two years of
development, JT Brands launched a trio of fragrances—Must Have,
Rodeo Dr. and Iconic—at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills in

such as the CA Native Plants Society and
Beverly Hills’ own Arborist.

emotionally into a restorative, renewing fruity floral scent that can inspire a woman to feel more confident and
spontaneous.” The fragrance opens on a top note of lemon zest, bergamot and lychee blossom. Its heart of pink
peony, wild sweet pea and lotus dries down to a note of sun-bleached Malibu driftwood, Pacific musks and amber.
Rodeo Dr. is a satisfied and elegant scent. Mr. Negrin was inspired by “the color red—a red dress, a red lipstick, red
flowers, red wine, majestic California redwoods, a red hot Beverly Hills woman and the glamour of the red carpet.
Sensual, rich and sophisticated, I play with different tonalities of red from top to bottom.” The juice begins with a note
of bergamot blossom, mandarin and scarlet hibiscus. Its middle note of star gardenia, California peony and jasmine is
based on a drydown of California oak, giant redwood, musk and patchouli.
The juice for sexy and mysterious Iconic was suggested to Mr. Herpin during a visit to sunny southern California.
He was influenced by “the climate, the natural beauty of the landscape, the quality of the light and most of, all the
glamorous, laid-back lifestyle. I loved the casual elegance of sexy, sensual California women…it all felt like home to
me.” The scent has a top note of raspberries and blackberries, which blends to a heart of California roses and orchid.
It is based on vetiver, sandalwood and vanilla.
The three fragrances are presented in a flacon designed by Studio Pali Fekete’s Architect Zoltan Pali. It was
produced by Pochet.
Must Have, Rodeo Dr. and Iconic are each priced at $120.00. They are available now at and will be
at select retailers in the US, France, United Kingdom and Dubai next year.
Beverly Hills Mayor Jimmy Delshad explained, “Many companies have come to the City of Beverly Hills seeking
to use the BH trademark, but JT Brands demonstrated its clear understanding of the City’s branding vision and a
sophisticated and creative approach to the design and implementation.” JT Brands Inc. is a Los Angeles-based beauty
company specializing in the creation and distribution of beauty brands.

The Art Of Fragrance

osmetic Executive Women hosted an exclusive peak inside the creative minds of Calice Becker,
Executive Perfumer at Givaudan and The Estée Lauder Companies’ Trudi Loren, Vice President,
Corporate Fragrance Development, during The Art of Fragrance discussion on November 10 at the
Harmonie Club in Manhattan. The women, who have collaborated on ten fragrances together,
discussed their fragrant pasts, inspirations, successes and the foreseeable future of the industry.
Scent played a perceptible role throughout the lives of the
evening’s speakers, with Ms. Loren recalling her father’s Pierre
Cardin cologne and the last drops of a “very oxidized CHANEL
No5” from her mother. Through a series of events, both women
found themselves working within the fragrance industry.
“Always the first to observe smells,” Ms. Becker’s mother
suggested she become a “nez.” But, not originating from Grasse
(the city in southern France known as the fragrance capital of
the world), nor the child of a Perfumer, she was told that her
chances were slim. Still, Ms. Becker took to the yellow-pages to
find a company that would teach her; with good fortune, she
was granted the opportunity to be trained at Roure Bertrand
Dupont. Ms. Loren, with a degree in biochemistry, and visions Givaudan’s Calice Becker and Coty’s Ruth Sutcliffe with
of pharmaceutical research, also took a job at the company as Trudi Loren of The Estée Lauder Companies

referred to the creation
process for a memorable fragrance as a “perfect storm”
of notes coming together.
Ms. Loren explained that in the beginning stages, a
Ann Gottlieb fragrance’s platform and design must first be imagined to
Associates’ grasp hold of the concept. Teamwork is crucial. “From
Ann Gottlieb and the beginning, it’s a collaborative process with the entire
Carlotta Jacobson
of CEW team. This allows for us to focus on the product and the
consumer. Everyone owns the project.” The fragrance is
not finished until it “clicks” with the initial imagery,
which is when Ms. Loren says it is complete. A recent

as well as executives from
La Prairie at an intimate cocktail party to
celebrate women’s health. The event was held on
November 3 at the Cos Bar Montecito store in
Santa Barbara, California where guests had the
opportunity to mingle with both Ms. Garfield and
Ms. Ostin, who is the author of Hollywood Moms
and Hollywood Dads.
At the cocktail party, Ms. Ostin showed a brief
clip from her moving film, Breast Cancer: The

Hosts Insider’s Breakfast
he Fragrance Foundation offers its members opportunities to hear from its Board Members
at Insider’s Breakfasts. At these breakfasts’ informal setting, members can interact and
learn about the fragrance industry’s leaders and their companies.
On November 3, The Estée Lauder Companies’ Senior Vice President and General Manager Carol Russo hosted an
Insider’s Breakfast and tracked her career from its start ‘behind the counter’ as a Sales Associate to her current position
overseeing the Aramis and Designer Fragrances as well as Beauty Bank.
She gave “lessons” in how she built her career with life
experiences. The first important lesson she learned early
on was “Know your customer.”
As Ms. Russo advanced to become an Account
Executive and then a Regional executive, she made sure
to know the markets she engaged with.
“The art of negotiation” was another lesson. After a
difficult confrontation with a retailer, she understood that
“both parties have to win.”
When Ms. Russo joined The Estée Lauder Companies
to work on “Big Blue,” as the Estée Lauder brand is
known, she learned to depend on her team and to get
feedback from them.
Getting to the realization that she was not “Superwoman,”
was Ms. Russo’s fifth lesson. She gave credit to her
The Estée Lauder Companies’ Carol Russo (c.) with The Fragrance family for a lot of help as she balanced her family with
Foundation’s Terry Molnar and Mary Ellen Lapsansky
her professional life.
“Managing the unexpected” was a lesson learned during a difficult trip when Ms. Russo almost missed a major
meeting with a retailer.
“Becoming more patient with the people I work with,” she shared, provides a productive work atmosphere.
Whether an experience is good or bad, Ms. Russo recommends making good use of it.
In managing the multiple brands she is now responsible for
at The Estée Lauder Companies, “it’s all about collaboration.
Lessons come from many different people.”
“Find a teacher,” she recommends. When Ms. Russo meets
with The Estée Lauder Companies’ President and CEO
Fabrizio Freda, “He provides me with lessons, and I share
them with my team.” She is constantly learning from her own
children who teach her about social media. She also advised
The Fragrance Foundation members at the breakfast to
surround themselves with people smarter than they are about
specific things. “You have to be open to learn.”
Ms. Russo revealed that her experience as a Sales Associate
is “still strong in me. I always keep the customer in mind.”
She loves her work with fragrances and believes that the
Fragrance Sales Associates need to translate the emotional
connection of fragrances with their customers. “Take the Ms. Russo shares with her audience the lessons that have guided

In an explanation of her rise on her career path, Ms. Russo affirmed that it was due in large part to “hard work, a
sense of determination and willingness to succeed.” BF

Six Scents Parfums is a collaborative effort between visionary Fashion
Designers and leading Perfumers who build creative olfactory interpretations
around a central theme. This year, the Six Scents project investigated the
nature of childhood memories and the influence of adolescence on
identity. Sales of the fragrances support a charitable cause.
The third in an annual series, this year’s Six Scents, held on November 5
at Manhattan’s 3 Legged Dog, paired Designers Alexis Mabille,
Mary Katrantzou, Juun J, Rad Hourani, N.Hoolywood and Ohne Titel
with Givaudan’s Perfumers Yann Vasnier, Stephen Nilsen, Christophe
Raynaud, Natalie Gracia, Shyamala Maisondieu and Rodrigo Flores-
Roux. The six fragrances evolved from their collaboration are offered in a
limited quantity of 3,000 bottles, and a large portion of the net proceeds
from their sale will go towards War Child International.
“We chose the rising stars of the fashion industry who will one day be
big enough to have their own fragrance, but who are too small to have it Six Scents Parfums’ Kaya Sorhaindo (2nd l.) with
just yet,” explained Joseph Quartana, Six Scents Parfums’ Co-Founder Givaudan’s Perfumers Rodrigo Flores-Roux,
Yann Vasnier and Stephen Nilsen
and Collection Curator. “We ask ourselves what if ‘Gareth Pugh’ had a
scent in the future and what would it smell like? So, we steal from the future and offer it now.”
Kaya Sorhaindo, the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Six Scents Parfums, added, “We give Perfumers,
Designers and Artists creative freedom, because you get unanticipated artistic conjunctions, things that you simply
have not thought of. You get relationships that take place that are often outside of our general realm of experience.
Hence, Six Scents does not engage with the standard notion of what a perfume is and the requirements that make it.
Instead, it is poetic speculations on what else a perfume could be.”
Guests at the Six Scents Parfums event were treated to samples of all six scents, portraits of the six Designers by
Robert Knoke and video screenings of commissioned short films by hosts Alia Raza and Rainer Judd among others as
well as a 3D video installation.

The Designers and Givaudan Perfumers who collaborated on the Series Three
fragrances are:
No1: Alexis Mabille and Rodrigo Flores-Roux for “Beauty Bow”
No2: Mary Katrantzou and Shyamala Maisondieu for “Trompe L’Oeil”
No3: Juun J and Natalia Gracia for “Can’t Smell Fear”
No4: Rad Hourani and Christophe Raynaud for “Ascent”
No5: N.Hoolywood and Stephen Nilsen for “#087”
No6: Ohne Titel and Yann Vasnier for “M”

The Six Scents are now available for a limited time until February 2011 at
over 220 retailers worldwide including Opening Ceremony in New York,
The Standard Hotels, Lucky Scent and Mayfield in Los Angeles, Liberty of
London and Colette in Paris, 20 Corso Como in Seoul and Milan, Adelaide in
Tokyo, Assin in Melbourne, Club 21 in Singapore and Joyce in Hong Kong.
Guests sniffed and sampled the

to kick off their worldwide launch. BF

The Beautymakers Are Delivering Makeup Magic

There is good news in the color category, reports The NPD Group, Inc. Sales for prestige makeup in US department
stores continue on a positive trend. August 2010 was the fourth consecutive month of positive dollar and unit sales.
Dollar sales increased 2% to $2 billion, year-to-date through August 2010, compared to the same period in 2009.
“While 2% may not seem like a huge sales increase, it is noteworthy, because this is the first time in two years that
the prestige makeup industry is showing a positive trend,” noted Karen Grant, Vice President and Global Industry
Analyst for The NPD Group. “We first began to see prestige makeup decline in 2008, before the recession, and if you
were to look at where the prestige makeup industry was just one year ago, in 2009, you would be seeing a 7%
decline, compared to 2008 figures,” Ms. Grant explained. “Women continue to tell us that they want to enhance the
way they look and to feel more confident and feminine. Experimenting with color is one of the ways they do that
without spending a fortune.”
According to The NPD Group Inc., Face and Nails were standout segments, outperforming the total makeup
category in the first eight months of the year. Face, the largest segment with 49% dollar share of makeup, grew 3% in
dollar volume, versus last year. Concealer (+6%), Foundation (+3%) and Blush (+2%) helped lead the way for Face
category growth. The Nail segment, the smallest makeup segment with only 1% dollar share, grew a double-digit
31% year-to-date (January through August) 2010, compared to the same time last year.
Both the Lip and Eye segments showed positive growth as well, 2% and 1 % respectively. The sub-segments driving
growth in the Lip and Eye categories were Lip Color (+ 8%) and Eye Liner (+3%).
“The growth areas in prestige makeup reflect the changing preferences with women,” Ms. Grant continued.
“Products that enhance already great skin or provide a natural look are driving sales in face products. Complementing
the natural look in face products are the rich color products for lips and nails. For many women, color categories like
lipcolor are quite new and a place to play, experiment and indulge without breaking the bank.”

According to The NPD Group, prestige skincare dollar sales increased 7% in the first half of 2010 compared to the
first half of 2009. All segments posted positive growth dollar sales in the first half from January through June 2010
except for the Body segment, which was down 5%.
The biggest skincare category winner during the first half of the year was Sets and Kits, up 17% in dollar sales.
The Face category had the second highest growth, an increase of 7% in dollars. Sun and Hair saw dollar sales increases
of 5% and 3% respectively.
Anti-aging captured the lion’s share of the facial skincare market with 61% for the first half of 2010. In the Face
ccategory, anti-aging outperformed the overall segment, up 9% compared to the first half of 2009. Of anti-aging
dollars, the majority was spent on a facial moisturizer with a 44% dollar share. Age specialists were the second largest
ssegment at 25% share, followed by eye products at 19% share.
“These positive results reflect consumers’ continued appetite for high quality skincare and the prestige shoppers’
loyalty to the prestige channel and the brands they love and trust,” commented Karen Grant, Vice President and
Global Industry Analyst at The NPD Group.
“The results so far this year are quite encouraging, especially when we see that total skincare has not just surpassed
the results of the recessionary year 2009, but has almost surpassed the pre-recession year of 2008,” Ms. Grant contin-
ued. “New launches excluding gift sets are up almost $20 million more than the first half of 2008, and specialized
facial treatment products are up almost 60% compared to 2008. These achievements are signs that 2010 will be the
year of prestige skincare.”
Here are some launches to give skin and hair some tender loving care.

want to innovate, not imitate,” declares Laura Geller,
Founder and CEO of Laura Geller Beauty Ingenuity.
“When I create a new product, I base it on women’s
needs. It has to fill a void.”
Ms. Geller has been innovating in beauty since she became a
Makeup Artist star. She practiced her makeup artistry on network
television while also setting up her Laura Geller Makeup Studio
on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in 1993. Her many high-profile
clients not only had their makeup application but learned how
to create their beauty looks.
Following her passion to innovate, she developed a collection
of makeup that has formed her core group, including the iconic
Spackle Primer, CAULK concealer and Baked Collection of skin-
perfecting powders.
Ms. Geller’s greatest success was in front of the television Laura Geller Beauty Ingenuity’s Laura Geller
and Lori Mariano
camera in 1997, when she began her appearances on QVC.
“I reach people who never heard of me and talk to an audience of 95 million
households as if I’m speaking to one person,” she confided. “I speak to women
who are hungry for knowledge [about beauty].”
Her mantra about “no-brainer beauty” has spawned a growth spurt in
Ms. Geller’s products. The Baked collection, produced in Italy, gives the
customer a quality, fool-proof delivery and, she affirmed, “The color-correct
Red lips form the iconic symbol for
pigments adapt to a woman’s skin.” Laura Geller Beauty Ingenuity.
Ms. Geller is currently testing an infomercial that offers the true story of her
signature Baked best-sellers, including an exclusive formulation of Balance-n-Brighten, her Baked foundation
perfecting powder. The infomercial tells the story of the baked production process at her Italian supplier. The formula-
tion for Balance & Brighten is enhanced with ING3 anti-aging technology. The product will only be available via the
infomercial and is targeted to young women. However, she shares, “my products are suited to women from nineteen
to ninety.”
She credits Betty Broder, Director of Product Development and Kim Galvin, Senior Brand Manager as the creative
team that interprets Ms. Geller’s visions and makes the products happen. The team listens to customers for new prod-
uct ideas and does get some inspiration from their feedback via social networks and store events. Her Makeup Studio
is also a “melting pot of ideas.” Laura Geller Beauty Ingenuity
introduced new products this year and a new franchise.
One of Ms. Geller’s easy-to-use products is Air Whipped
Bronzer with Brush. This mousse-textured “skin perfector” blurs
imperfections and creates the illusion of smooth, bronzed skin
with an air-brushed effect. It can be used on the fairest as well as
deeper skin tones. It will be available in March 2011 for $28.00

Avon And mark. Representatives Share Their Sales Tips For Success

Robyn Stephenson
Independent Avon Representative
Advanced Unit Leader
Zeeland, Michigan
After my husband was laid off late last year, I knew I had to do something to help balance what
seemed to be an uncontrollable financial situation. In February, I decided to become an Avon
Representative. I chose Avon because I’d grown up with the products and knew the company had a
really good heart. I love helping others and giving back to my community, which made Avon the perfect fit for me.
Working as an Avon Representative has been so rewarding. I truly value the amazing network of women Avon has
created in my life. I have drawn a lot of motivation to sell from the fellow ladies on my Team, and I just love my
For me, the key to success has been developing relationships of trust and honesty with the women I sell to. I always
ask for feedback on every product and follow-up with my customers after they’ve made a purchase. If I sell a skincare
regimen, I remember to follow up with that customer a couple months later when their products are almost finished. I
ask if they liked their regimen and recommend other products they might also like to try. The results have been great
and the positive word of mouth from my customers has brought me many referrals. I have always had a love for
service, and Avon has provided a great way for me to help others, while earning extra income.
Not only have I been able to support my family as an Avon Representative, but I am also able to donate a portion
of my earnings to a cause dear to my heart. My husband and I have both been diagnosed with cervical Dystonia, a
neurological disorder that affects the nerve and muscle tissue in the body. As an Avon Representative, I am able to
contribute regular donations to the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. Avon also affords me flexibility in my
schedule to maintain speaking engagements with my foundation, so that I may continue to inspire others with my
story. I am living by example, supporting my family and the issues that matter most to me.

Angelique Agee
Independent Avon Representative
Executive Unit Leader
Mobile, Alabama
Never say never. After 17 years as an Avon Representative, I can say that I am still surprising myself.
I never thought I’d be able to sell Avon. I’d gone to school, earned a degree and got the typical
“hours for dollars” kind of job. It was the only way I knew how to make money. My grandmother
used to tell me I’d be great at selling Avon. “I can’t do that,” I remember saying. Four months after
my grandmother’s passing, I decided to give it a try—and I’ve been selling ever since.
I had worked as an Avon Representative for 11 years when things became shaky at my full-time job. I began to hear
rumors about downsizing. I decided that I would begin to push my Avon business a little harder, just in case I was let
go. I began working weekends, putting in hours after work, taking orders, making deliveries and steadily building my
team. All my work truly paid off because I was eventually laid off from my full time job. But since then, I have been
able to make a very comfortable living selling Avon full-time for the past five years.
By working as an Avon Representative, everything has come into place for me. My annual income increased by
$8,000 in the first year I decided to make my Avon business full-time and has only continued to grow. I am constantly
trying new sales techniques and am involved with field training, beauty classes and sales strategy meetings so that I
can continue to build a better business. I have always been a people person, and now my job lets me truly dedicate
myself to helping others.
While I am thrilled to have a flourishing business, I also love giving back to my community. One year, I had so
much excess product, I decided to sell to residents at the local retirement home. It has become such a hit that my
team and I now sell to four different homes, setting up tables at each location for every major holiday. Every item is
discounted and sold without tax to help the residents who are often on a very fixed income. We are now in our 10th
year of selling! (Continued on page 58)

Sciences as the Laureates of the 2011 awards.
“It was a great pleasure for me to chair this jury and to promote this
program, which is of major international importance,” affirmed Professor
Zewail. “The women Scientists from all over the world who are receiving the
L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards make it possible for us to hope for a better future.”
The 2011 Laureate for North America is Jillian Banfield, Professor of Earth
and Planetary Science of Environmental Science, Policy and Management
and of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California,
Berkeley. Professor Banfield, a Geomicrobiologist and Biogeochemist,
was chosen for her work on bacterial and material behavior under extreme
conditions relevant to the environment and the Earth. Jillian Banfield
Africa and the Arab States are represented by Faiza Al-Kharafi, Professor of
Chemistry at Kuwait University, Safat, Kuwait, who was selected for her work on corrosion, a problem of fundamental
importance to water treatment and the oil industry.
The Asia/Pacific area is represented by Vivian Wing-Wah Yam, Professor of Chemistry and Energy, The University of
Hong Kong, China. Professor Wing-Wah Yam was selected for her work on light-emitting materials and innovative
ways of capturing solar energy.
In Europe, Anne L’Huillier, Professor of Atomic Physics at Lund University, Sweden was chosen for her work on the
development of the fastest camera for recording events in attoseconds—a billionth of a billionth of a second.
Latin America is represented by Silvia Torres-Peimbert, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Astronomy, Mexico City
University (UNAM) in Mexico City, Mexico. She was selected as a Laureate for her work on the chemical composition
of nebulae, which is fundamental to our understanding of the origin of the universe.
L’Oréal and UNESCO remain convinced that these women Researchers will have a major impact on society and lay
the foundation for the future. As such, L’Oréal and UNESCO want to contribute to their recognition and provide them
with the means to continue their commitment to science with energy and passion. BF

Autumn Harvest
The Fragrance Foundation’s Annual

he Fragrance Foundation held its annual
Autumn Harvest dinner at City Winery on
October 26. The festive evening included
four courses of delectable food, wine and fra-
grance that were paired together to complement
each other and the fall season. Chef Jonathan

created a menu that featured a dinner perfect to
welcome in colder weather. With each course,
Mary John Baumann, Founder and President of

wine that she selected and Stephen Nilsen,
Givaudan Perfumer, explained the corresponding
notes of the fragrances he created specifically for
the evening. A first for Chef Lindenauer, “This
event opened my eyes to pairing food with fra-
grance, adding fragrance added an element out
of the ordinary,” stating that he was “influenced
by the fall, using local and seasonal ingredients Nose in the Glass’ Mary John Baumann, Givaudan’s Stephen Nilsen, Bon Appétit’s

Harrods was extremely proud with the success of The Per-
fume Diaries, an exhibition that was the first of its kind.
Open to the public for four weeks, this presentation cele-
brated and told the story of fragrance, from ancient times
through to modern day. Housed within a stylish contempo-
rary space on the fourth floor of Harrods, the exhibition
provided a comprehensive view of the most significant and
influential scents to have emerged since the 1800s. Price-
less artifacts from all over the globe had been assembled by
Fragrance Expert Roja Dove and Emma Hockley, Harrods’
Perfumery and Cosmetics Buyer. Mr. Dove had selected
fragrances for their impact on the industry and their influ-
ence over the way in which we wear perfume today. Visi-
tors to the exhibition were given the opportunity to discov-
er the inspiration behind the greatest classics—from the
coveted jewels of Boucheron to the pioneers of haute cou-
ture, such as Christian Dior. On display were original art-
work, sketch designs and advertising visuals, in addition to
personal tales and photographs. Exquisite fragrance fla-
cons, tracked down from archives all over the world were
also presented to the viewers. Furthermore, visitors were
able to discover how Perfumers responded to and how they
were influenced by cultural behaviour of that period.
An original sketch by Yves Saint Laurent

The Perfume Diaries was also designed to educate cus-

tomers as to how fragrance is made. In collaboration with
Givaudan, the exhibit explained the manufacturing pro-
cess enabling customers to touch, see and smell ingredi-
ents used in perfumery from the most common to the
most precious of materials. To complement the exhibi-
tion, the world’s finest and most noted Perfumers dis-
cussed their work in a series of events.
Vintage bottles are displayed at The Pefume Diaries Many of the fragrances featured in the exhibition were
enduring classics that will never be forgotten, and some
remain on display and are available to buy in Harrods.
One of the brands that was showcased in The Perfume
Diaries was Robert Piguet Parfums. It has been reported
that his fragrances tell stories of other places and times
but have always remained lasting classics. Robert Piguet
was known as one of the most creative designers of his
time and a number of his apprentices included Christian
Dior and Hubert de Givenchy. Mr. Piguet also spotted
brilliance in perfumery with the work of eccentric Per-
fumer, Germaine Cellier, who created Piguet’s Bandit,
Visa and Fracas. Mr. Piguet closed his house in 1951 and
sadly died in 1953. However, today the brand has been
reborn with Fashion Fragrances & Cosmetics re-launch-
ing many of the classics. The brand’s latest fragrance,

instant update to the cosmetics department at Stage

the newly introduced Beauty Bar–a series of circular
tables placed around the cosmetics department creating
an approachable landscape of beauty and skincare.
Christine Johnson, Senior Vice President/General Mer-
chandise Manager at Stage Stores, Inc. stated that the
three-year old store was the perfect location for the open

sible. It’s a friendly environment that allows us to offer
alternatives to our customers.” Among the lines that were
artfully displayed were Burt’s Bees, Crabtree & Evelyn,

Personalizing the Justin Bieber experience through fragrance has
been achieved by Etoile Nation Beauty. Headed by CMO Michael
Ferrara, the company has collaborated with Mr. Bieber on the
launch of the My World fragrance collection featuring a unique
delivery mechanism.

bergamot, lychee and pomegranate. The note of cedar blends to a
backdrop of musk. The scent is infused in collectible wrist bands
and dog tags selected by Mr. Bieber. The four designs inspired by
Justin’s world are Icon, which uses symbols to represent his life-
style and the youth culture he influences; Energy, which captures
the excitement of a Justin Bieber My World concert with graphics
inspired by the classic Bieber pose; Tour, which is a concert
memento with featured tour cities and Web, which features
imagery from Mr. Bieber’s personal homepage.
The collection is meant to be portable, customizable and
collectible. It personalizes the Justin Bieber experience. The
collection is priced at $10.00 each and launched at Wal-Mart on

Monmouth University formulated a fragrance as part of a
requirement for her Entrepreneurship class at the University.
After obtaining a financial backer, Ms. Rabbat purchased the
rights to the fragrance and tweaked the formulation.
The reformulated fragrance is musky with hints of vanilla
bean and sandalwood. Using her business experience gained
as an intern at NARS Cosmetics and John Varvatos Fragrances,
Ms. Rabbat wanted an exciting presentation for her fragrance.
Pounding the pavements in her stilettos, she got the idea of

Stiletto comes in a 1.7 oz. size for $42.00 and is available at a
