What were the top-selling women’s fragrances in specialty stores around the world for the holidays? And why? Here, a global report.
Los Angeles, USA
Apothia Love By Kilian ($135) “The travel set was very popular for gift giving. We kept selling out of it. I think the price point was an attraction, as buyers felt the sets were a good value. Also, the Kilian line is more exclusive and hard to find, making it a prestigious gift to give and receive.” —Karen Meena, vice president, buying and merchandising
New York, USA
Saks Fifth Avenue Bond No. 9 ($95 to $230) “Bond No. 9 continues to be the top-performing fragrance collection. Our customers enjoy the uniqueness and exclusivity of the line, especially when they’re looking for that very special gift . It has tremendous appeal across the country with our customers who value the beauty and authenticity reflected throughout the entire collection.” —Deborah Walters, senior vice president and general merchandise manager, cosmetics and fragrances
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
