NEW YORK — Designer Kate Spade is doing her best to make sure her fragrance sales are in the bag.
A recent 10-city tour of in-store appearances netted upwards of $150,000 in cumulative sales, according to estimates by industry sources. Neither Spade nor her fragrance licensee, the Estée Lauder Cos., would comment on the estimate.
