ANNA SUI SAID TO BE NEAR FRAGRANCE DEAL WITH WELLA
NEW YORK — Anna Sui may be close to signing a fragrance licensing deal with Wella AG.
On Friday, a spokesman for Wella confirmed the two companies have discussed a scent deal but that nothing is final.
Sui could not be reached for comment.
Back in April, Sui officials confirmed the designer had been “in informal development on a scent for several years.”
Wella, which holds the license for Gucci fragrances, also has been the object of speculation in recent months as a possible partner for the Donna Karan Beauty Co. Executives at the Donna Karan division have said repeatedly they will announce a beauty alliance by the end of September. The Estee Lauder Cos. has been named as another prospect for a partnership with Donna Karan.
