Designer Tommy Hilfiger stopped by Berlin’s KaDeWe department store recently to sign bottles of his new men’s fragrance, Hilfiger (from the EstéeLauder Cos. Inc.’s Aramis and Designer Fragrances division), and to give out autographed photos to a line of more than 100 fans, and spritz the press with his new scent.
