November’s FGI Scent Event at the Thompson Hotel Highlights Thierry Mugler’s “Les Exceptions” Through a Fragrance Experience

The evening began with an olfactory pleasing presentation of Thierry Mugler’s “Les Exceptions”, a collection of five unique fragrances that delight the senses and entice the imagination. Novella had the opportunity to attend this FGI (Fashion Group International) event at the Thompson Hotel and had the pleasure of experiencing these fragrances through the mouth of a wine glass. The presentation method allowed the scent to slowly emanate up from the glass and allowed the depth of each fragrance to come to life.

Sponsored by Hudson’s Bay and moderated by Jim Hicks, retired Publisher of Cosmetics Magazine, the second part of the event provided an educational and informative look at the fragrance industry through a forum discussion.

Panel members included:

David Titheridge, General Manager, LVMH Fragrance Brands Canada Ltd.

Deborah Fulsang, Journalist, Founder of the Fulsang Company and Creator of The Whale and The Rose

Heather Josey, Prestige Fragrance Buyer, Hudson’s Bay

Sandy Silva, Canadian Fashion & Beauty Industry Analyst, The NPD Group
