NOSE the Paris niche fragrance, cosmetics and home products concept boutique, famed for its olfactive purism, international flavor, and unique ‘diagnostic’ software, celebrated its 1st birthday on June 19 with a knock down-drag -out street party. Co-founders Silvio Levi, Nicolas Cloutier, Mark Buxton, Romano Ricci and Claire Delahaye de Villiers had much to celebrate in addition to a successful year and 45 + niche brands. Among other accomplishments: the recent announcement of an agreement with Philip Hillige of Skins Cosmetics (The Netherlands) for use of the NOSE diagnostic program in selected Skin Cosmetics boutiques.
An enthusiastic crowd of well-wishers sampled, discussed, and reveled in the convivial and laid-back atmosphere in and outside the boutique on the rue Bachaumont, and its unique and generous once on a summer’s night mix of artistic perfumes, Champagne, roses, and American-style hamburgers.
