On the cover:

1 MILLION INTENSE, is a world of gold, flamboyance, and elegance where bold scents share leading roles with seduction and sensuality. The searing, slightly citric top note plays on any number of spicy tones. Sweet cardamom, vying intensely with black pepper, mixes into sparkling blood mandarin. Mellow saffron and warm scents of nutmeg and cumin wrap themselves around these contrasting notes. Intense and refined, the heart has retained rose absolute, the zest of cinnamon with its delectable charm, and sublime neroli. The base daringly opts for unexpected woody encounters: sandalwood with the vibrant and textured character of spicy pepperwood. Finally leather casts light on butter of iris, giving the fragrance a distinctly sexy trail.

EDiTORiAL HOLIDAY SEASON 2013 IS IN FULL SWING It’s go time for the retail industry since we are officially in the holiday season. Consumer confidence is what drives the holiday shopping sales, and from what I see—huge product and fragrance launches—leads me to believe that there will be increased foot traffic in the stores. My projection is we will see a 3-4% increase of sales in some stores, and 5-7% in our category with stronger numbers coming from the prestige side. I believe in holiday miracles.

Happy Holidays!

aving attended Luxe Pack Monaco since its inception roughly 25 years ago, packaging designer extraordinaire Marc Rosen spoke exclusively with Beauty Fashion regarding his impressions of this year’s show. “There was an enormous buzz and an amazing crowd at the Grimaldi Forum this year. There were many new ideas presented by packaging suppliers that excited me.” Glass is an ancient art and new ideas are hard to come by, but Rosen said that the heavy weight of glass fragrance bottles was a popular trend along with incredible opportunities for decoration—a saver of both money and time, in that uniqueness can be achieved without the development of new glass. Resultingly, caps are becoming more and more a point of interest, Rosen said, citing the new Flower In The Air packaging for Kenzo, which features overmolding. “Designers and suppliers alike are looking at caps in different ways than ever before.” In color, he said that the sea of black packaging has finally given way to more colorful options in terms of compacts, lipsticks, pencils and more. Rosen also spoke to the experiential nature of design, and the importance of creating visible, tactile and emotional impacts with consumers. First, designers must create a product that looks good in marketing materials as well as in-store. Then, that design must live up to consumer expectations while being handled and experienced prior to purchase. And finally, it must be something that is loved at home with repeated use.

t was a busy week at TFWA for Puig, the familyowned fashion and fragrance company, said its COO, Javier Bach, in an exclusive interview with Beauty Fashion. “Puig is currently the sixth-ranked player in prestige fragrances globally. Our goal is to enter the top five with a ten percent market share in coming years. Puig has consistently gained share over the past nine years, and expects to grow in terms of sell-out at more than twice the speed of the markets in 2013,” Bach said. The Puig travel retail business is also growing above industry rates, he noted, with the launch of Invictus by Paco Rabanne achieving top-seller status across the globe. While emerging markets are key for Puig (their weight in the company’s geographical footprint is ten points above the industry average), it can be challenging to grow brands in some of these markets owing to a lack of firmly established retail platforms, Bach said. For that reason, Puig sees the travel retail channel as an opportunity to develop its brands in those areas and continues to invest in what Bach calls “the shopping experience.” Looking for innovative ways to communicate each brand’s respective universe, the company reaches out to consumers with digital media prior to—and during—their time spent in airports. Puig leverages its combined fashion and fragrance expertise to fully animate brands in-store in different categories. The face of Invictus, Australian rugby star Nick Youngquest, made a personal appearance at Charles de Gaulle airport in France to greet consumers in celebration of the fragrance launch. This goes to show that travel retail is increasingly borrowing from the department store promotional model as it continues to emerge as a key channel, explained Lyndea Dew, Puig’s global travel retail marketing director. In the U.S. market, the company has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, rising in

The Nick Youngquest-starring campaign for Invictus by Paco Rabanne.

2012 by 30% and doubling its size over the past three years, Bach said, as Puig continues to build upon its Prada, Valentino and Rabanne franchises. Puig has been able to place Prada Luna Rossa in the top ten and 1 Million by Paco Rabanne in the top 17— thus building a strong base in the male segment. And the company’s freshly-inked deal with Clarins Fragrance Group for stateside distribution through a shared sales force is a great opportunity to further develop its business, Bach said. Finally, as an arbiter of luxury, Puig will focus in coming months on what Bach calls its premium portfolio of fragrances—Prada and Valentino—beginning with the launch of the latter’s first-ever men’s scent, Valentino Uomo. French actor Louis Garrel will serve as the face of the fragrance in a cinematic campaign directed by Johan Renck. To attract premium consumers, Puig will invest in innovative sampling vehicles and an enhanced in-store experience. BF

Thanks to an exclusive media partnership with the Meredith Corporation beginning with the program’s 20th anniversary, the 2014 Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards, the partnership will enable CEW and the awards finalists and winners to reach consumers through Meredith’s multiple media platforms, including magazines, television, and digital properties.

Cosmopolitan for Latinas, the magazine for the Englishspeaking Hispanic woman in the U.S., announced that the title will increase its frequency to five issues in 2014, while maintaining its distribution of 545,000. The premiere issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas launched in May 2012 with the Spring/Summer issue, which was then followed by a Fall/Winter issue. The magazine received an overwhelmingly positive response from both the Latina community and from advertisers who are focusing sharply on the Hispanic market, which led to an increased frequency of four issues in 2013. Advertising pages for the Fall 2013 issue are +40% from the previous Summer 2013 issue. “It became clear to us prior to launching Cosmo for Latinas that the female Hispanic population feels strongly about both their Latina and American heritages and the traditional channels were not meeting their media needs,” said Donna Kalajian Lagani, senior vice president/publishing director, Cosmopolitan and Cosmopolitan for Latinas.

n the city of never-ending hustle and bustle, there is a serene, French-inspired oasis that sits on the 19th floor of the famed Waldorf Astoria New York—Guerlain Spa. In 1828, Peirre-François Pascal Guerlain opened his first boutique in Paris, and enjoyed immediate success, leaving a legacy of a celebrated brand today. The spa’s history dates back to 1939, when its first “Institut de Beauté” opened at 68 avenue des Champs Elysées and gave birth to an exclusive facial massage technique.

At the spa, customers can luxuriate in the 14,000 sq. ft. space that features 14 treatments suites, a nail salon, and a fitness center. Each treatment suite includes a private bathing lounge, signature amenities (including tea, champagne, cappuccino, and a seasonal menu), and personalized music selections.

n order to adapt in an evolving retail climate and solidify its place as a premier fragrance destination, Belk has partnered with New York-based Scent Marketing Institute to develop the Belk Scent Finder. Currently being piloted in six of Belk’s 302 stores, the iPad application identifies five scent profiles and fragrance brands for consumers based on their answers to a set of six questions. In the process, it also captures the e-mail address of each participant. The questionnaire probes consumers’ food, music, fashion preferences and more, while corresponding scent profiles include, for instance, ‘Warm & Sensual’ or ‘Dreamy & Romantic.’

In-store, a specially designed kiosk featuring the Belk Scent Finder logo helps announce the program.

Tenth Year in Celebrating Women in Science


n October 24, L’Oréal USA celebrated its tenth year of its Fellowships For Women in Science program by honoring five post-doctoral female scientists at a ceremony at the American Museum of Natural History. Since its inception in 2003, this program has supported the advancement of women in sciences by funding up to $60,000 for scientific research, as well as helping them to build networks with successful female leaders in the scientific, corporate, government, and academic fields.

Beauty Fashion spoke with Susan Davidowitz, senior vice president, L’Oréal USA and For Women in Science ambassador about the program and future goals.

The celebration at the American Museum of Natural History.

This year is the tenth anniversary of the L’Oreal USA Fellowships For Women in Science. How did this program begin? L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science is a national extension of the global L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program, which since 1998, has honored 77 laureates, including two who subsequently were awarded the Nobel Prize.

2013 Fellows Anisa Ismail, Mary Caswell Stoddard, Arpita Bose, Robin Evans Stanley, and Luisa Whittaker Brooks.

The 2013 L’Oréal USA For Women in Science Fellows are: Arpita Bose, Harvard University (Microbiologist); Luisa Whittaker Brooks, Princeton University (Chemical and Biological Engineering); Anisa Ismail, Princeton University (Molecular Biology); Robin Evans Stanley, National Institues of Health (Biochemistry); and Mary Caswell Stoddard, Harvard University (Evolutionary Biologist and Ornithologist).

What is the significance of this program? To date, the L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science has awarded grants to 50 post-doctoral women researchers that directly support their scientific research. In addition to awarding grants, the program also offers the Fellows professional development workshops, facilitated by the program’s partner, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). One of the major goals of this program is to create role models and mentors for women scientists starting their careers. Do you have a vision for taking this program to the next level? Our 2004 L’Oréal USA For Women In Science Fellow, Kelly George, is now an associate principal chemist, research and innovation at L’Oréal USA, working on Clarisonic, sunscreens and skin care. While the next evolution of our program is still to be determined, we hope to continue supporting and acting as a direct pipeline for women in across all STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) industries.

Issey Miyake’s L’Eau d’Issey Absolue A part of Beauté Prestige International’s brand portfolio since 1992, famed Japanese designer Issey Miyake launched L’Eau d’Issey Absolue, a limitededition of luminous floral with influences of bright golden honey and night-blooming jasmine, evoking a new emotion of intensity, warmth, and light. Firmenich’s master perfumer Olivier Cresp created the scent. “The word Absolue does not by any means refer to a concentration or increased dose of ingredients.” says Cresp. “Rather, it speaks of the trail’s presence and potency, and of rich and textured raw ingredients. Nightblooming jasmine is warm, luminous and fills the atmosphere with its fragrance,” he added. Cresp chose nightblooming jasmine because the flower unveils its intense fragrance only at sunset.

L’Eau d’Issey Absolue’s top notes are lotus flower and freesia accord, and then becomes increasingly intense and potent, releasing the nightblooming jasmine scent. Cresp used a touch of tuberose to enhance the notes of nightblooming jasmine. Provence honey absolute is at the heart of the fragrance, bringing richness and intensity, and lastly, bourbon vanilla absolute and an accord of precious woods rounds out the scent. L’Eau d’Issey Absolue is available in fine specialty and department stores nationwide in a 3 oz. eau de parfum ($110.00), and 1.6 oz. eau de parfum ($85.00). L’Eau d’Issey Absolue evokes a natural world brimming with light and enveloped in the warmth of the sun.
