CANNES, France — The traffic in new products was busier than usual at the Tax Free World Association annual meeting, which ran from Sept. 18 to 23 here, as beauty manufacturers hawked their wares for distributors and travel-retail operators.
Among the major fragrance initiatives to be shown was Salvatore Ferragamo’s Signorina eau de parfum. The scent, due out starting in February, targets young women.
