With the addition of Givenchy’s first U.S. fragrance shop-in-shop and a devoted space for the new La Collection Privée Christian Dior, Saks Fifth Avenue is putting the finishing touches on a fragrance-department renovation of its Fifth Avenue flagship in New York.
“These brands highlight the most elevated offerings of the fashion houses’ fragrance collections, adding to our portfolio of Tom Ford Private Blend, Chanel Les Exclusives, Hermès and Cartier,” said Deborah Walters, senior vice president and general merchandise manager for cosmetics, fragrances and intimates at Saks Fifth Avenue. “The other half or our portfolio focuses on the artisanally crafted lifestyle houses: Bond No. 9, Kilian, Le Labo, Creed, Penhaligons, Acqua di Parma and Jo Malone. The combination of these spectrums gives the Saks customer the utmost in luxury offerings, from the highest end of designer fragrances to the most curated of the lifestyle fragrances houses.”
