Deep discounts and free shipping sparked record sales this holiday season for online merchants, with approximately $37 billion in spending, but the consumer was the big winner, taking advantage of extensive last-minute markdowns.

gains, as wealthy shoppers continued to boost the luxury segment. Big chains like Target and JC Penney, who posted weaker results, were inclined to blame mild winter temperatures, which hurt sales of winter apparel and other winter merchandise. The outlook for sales in 2012 is solid, although economists say there is little room for a big increase in spending. Because consumer spending accounts for nearly 70% of the economy, general growth is likely to be sluggish due to essentially flat incomes, modest job growth and new jobs in low-paying sectors.

PERFUMANIA TO ACQUIRE PARLUX Perfumania and Parlux Fragrances announced that they have signed a definitive merger agreement under which Perfumania will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Parlux in a transaction valued at approximately $170 million, based on Perfumania’s closing stock price of $19.55 per share on December 22. This strategic transaction, which is expected to create a more efficient and competitive company that would provide greater value to stockholders and better service to the parties’ customers, has been unanimously approved by the independent committees of the Boards of Directors of both companies, and expected to close in the first half of 2012. “The combination of Perfumania and Parlux is a major step toward building a more significant and financially stronger designer fragrance and beauty products company,” said Mike Katz, president and CEO of Perfumania. “Parlux brings a wealth of products and expertise as a licensee, manufacturer and international distributor.” Under the merger agreement, Parlux stockholders may elect to receive, for each share of Parlux common stock that they own, either $4.00 in cash plus 0.20 shares of Perfumania common stock, or 0.53 shares of Perfumania common stock, both of which are subject to certain adjustments. “The Parlux management team and Board of Directors are focused on maximizing value for stockholders,” said Fred Purches, chairman and CEO of Parlux. “This combination achieves that objective by providing our shareholders with a significant

NINE WEST DEBUTS FIRST FRAGRANCE

MAKE UP FOR EVER ACADEMY

The juice, developed by Firmenich perfumers Ilias Ermenidis and Honorine Blanc, is a woody floral Oriental with notes of mandarin, sandalwood, and orris flower to create an intoxicating, mysterious allure. “Love Fury, inspired by a book titled Furious Love, that is centered in the whole idea of a passionate love affair,” said Fred Allard, creative director for Nine West. “There is a strong connection between the seductive statement that a woman makes with her shoes and fragrance, as both are seen as ultimate weapons of attraction. Love Fury successfully captures the passion and addiction of the Nine West consumer.” Inspiration for the bottle design came from the idea of a “killer” heel breaking through glass—aggression that is then balanced by a feminine, sensual, nude and pink juice. A heavy glass flacon in a classic square shape with beveled edges is topped with a black lacquered cap made to resemble an ultra-glamorous stiletto heel.
