As is already the grand tradition of the weeks-old campaign, the president challenged Mark Lee, CEO of Barneys New York, Tony Spring, CEO of Bloomingdale’s and Josh Schulman, president of Bergdorf Goodman. Expect these three fashion powerhouses to step up like Saks’ brave president, who did so in Azzedine Alaia.

Welcome to the Fragrance Library

Beauty editors and bloggers were invited to partake in the festivities. As guests arrived, they were met by a gorgeous wall display built to mirror a clean and modern library, this one, naturally, composed of the who’s who of scents in the beauty market. Luckily, shoppers are not left to their own defenses in matters of finding the perfect scent. Fragrance librarians will be on hand to help Saks shoppers through the olfactory challenge of finding the perfect scent.
