|Rocking my Henri Bendel Jetsetter bag.|
As a Bendel girl and I super excited for the 120th anniversary! Since I am traveling I am missing the official launch of the 712 perfume but I will have to check it out as soon as I get back.
Key notes include:
o Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Sparkling Mandarin Blossom, Quince
o Mid: Blue Freesia, Iris, Hedione
o Dry: Suede, White Sandalwood, Cashmere Musk
It all began in 1895 when Henri Bendel opened his first store in Greenwich Village New York. In 1907 Bendel created and trademarked the now legendary brown and white striped hatbox and shopping bag, and was the first luxury retailer to move his store to Fifth Avenue. In 1915, Bendel was one of the first American designers to launch a signature parfum called “Un Peu d’Elle”. A century later, inspired by its legendary address at 712 Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel New York introduces Suite 712 Eau de Parfum.
Suite 712 elegantly embodies iconic New York’s sophisticated affluence and understated extravagance. The fragrance rouses the senses as if stepping into that landmark townhouse, or lounging in the backseat of a chauffeured luxury car. Its scent, distinctive and sexy, encompasses floral and woody notes such as freesia and suede. More than homage, it is a celebration. Suite 712 pays tribute to the brand’s rich heritage and to generations of Bendel girls.
