City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

Join perfumer Gerald Ghislan, founder of Histories de Parfums, next Thursday evening, November 18th, at Henri Bendel for a TASTE of SCENT event. Ghislan’s Histories de Parfums is a “library of scent” with 16 fragrances for men and women that each tells a unique story. Ghislan says, “I like to create stories that make people dream. Since I’m not a writer I use fragrances instead of words. The essences are my ink!” I find this to be such a thoughtful and inspiring concept from a true master of fragrance. The right fragrance will transport one to another place and time and does in fact make one dream. Perhaps this is why I own about 20 different perfumes and wear a different one depending on my mood and the day…

From 5pm-8pm on November 18th, you can meet Ghislan and taste martinis containing ingredients found in his Histories de Parfums collection. There will be yummy vanilla, rosewater, lavender and more to try! Should you find your martini inspiring, a free travel-sized spray will be given to the first 50 customers to purchase a full-sized fragrance (a $36 value). I will see you there sniffing, tasting and dreaming.

Henri Bendel
5th Avenue and 55th Street, NYC
