Saks Celebrates Its New Fragrance Floor With 10 Days of Events


Saks Fifth Avenue's New York City flagship will debut its newly revamped fragrance floor tomorrow, and it's stunning — we're talking Le Labo and Hermes along with eight other new shop-in-shops that will be offering exclusives (think leather atomizers from Hermes, Swarovski-accented perfume bottles from Bond No. 9). To fete the redesign, Saks is hosting 10 days of events, beginning tomorrow with a gift given to the first 500 customers to buy a fragrance. Thereafter, every single day there will be a planned activity on the floor and they'll continue in the new space every Thursday throughout the fall with weekly events including master classes with fragrance experts, customized gifts with purchase, special wrapping services and themed happy hours. For an idea of what's to come, check out the events slated for the coming days below.
