The nonprofit organization founded by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley aims to make Sept. 21 acknowledged as the Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations adopted a resolution making that day one of nonviolence and global cease-fire. Parfums Christian Dior is among the supporters of Peace One Day.
DESIGNER DEBUT: John Richmond hopes his first fragrance will work (internationally) like a charm. The designer, who, with his licensee, EuroItalia, introduced a signature scent in Italy in May, will begin rolling it out in European markets, excluding France and Russia, starting in October. The U.S. and Asia are scheduled to get the fragrance in 2010. A removable padlock charm around the bottle’s neck is reminiscent of a piece of jewelry Richmond wears, and a tattoolike print Richmond sketched also decorates the scent’s silver outer carton. Blended by International Flavors & Fragrances perfumers, the scent’s floral fruity juice features notes of pink grapefruit, pear, dewberry, magnolia, white sand lily, daffodil, sandalwood, patchouli and amber. The eau de parfum will be available in 30-, 50- and 100-ml. spray versions priced at $56, $79 and $107 at current exchange, respectively. There’s also a body lotion and shower gel. According to industry sources, the fragrance will generate $1.7 million in the U.K. in its first year. Model Leila Ben Khalifa, naked save for some accessories and jewelry, features in the new scent’s advertising campaign that was lensed by Tom Munro. COME AND GET IT!: Customer response to Frederic Fekkai’s shampoo swap — a one-day event that allowed consumers to bring in any full-size shampoo they use to get one free full-size Fekkai Advanced Shampoo of their choice — was huge. By noon Thursday, hundreds of women had lined up outside Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to trade in their old suds for new ones.
