PARIS — A Paris appeals court has dismissed a three-year-old fine amounting to 46.2 million euros, or $68.7 million at current exchange, meant to be paid by 13 prestige beauty brands and France’s three leading selective perfumery retailers for alleged retail price-fixing.
In March 2006, the country’s competition watchdog, Le Conseil de la Concurrence, fined the beauty brands including some owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and L’Oréal, and the retailers Marionnaud Parfumeries, Sephora and Nocibé for fixing retail prices between 1997 and 2000.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
