City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

The massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake and following tsunamis that hit Japan this past week were both devastating and heartbreaking. Towns were leveled and hundreds of thousands are living in evacuation shelters.

In light of this recent disaster, CEO Emmanuel Saujet and President Thomas Saujet of New York-based International Cosmetics & Perfumes, Inc. announced on Monday that a portion of proceeds from all sales of CREED products at http://www.creedboutique.com and part of proceeds from all sales of Hanae Mori Parfums at http://www.hanaemoriparfums.com will benefit the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross is responsible for giving massive amounts of relief aid to victims of the Japan disasters (and of other worldwide disasters).

Additionally, part of proceeds from all US sales of the new Hanae Mori Parfums No. 3 fragrance, debuting in June at retailers such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Sephora, will benefit the American Red Cross for the same purpose. Japan is the homeland of Madame Hanae Mori. During her career, she designed the wedding gown of Crown Princess Masako and was awarded the Order of Culture medal from the Emperor of Japan, as well as with the Legion of Honor medal from the President of France.

To also assist the homeless in Japan, ICP is sending to the American Red Cross 50 durable and reusable tote bags from a supply originally created as a customer appreciation gift. In addition to this supply, they will source more of these items and send them to the Red Cross. Every bit helps and it is greatly needed.

You can help by treating yourself to a new fragrance. Each time you wear your new scent you will be reminded of the donation that your purchase helped to fund and the people of Japan who were assisted by the American Red Cross.
