On Tuesday Saks Fifth Avenue opened a new, 32,000-square-foot beauty space on the second floor of its New York Flagship with more than 120 color cosmetics, skincare, fragrance and wellness brands (58 of which are new to the floor).  Anchor shops include Aesop, CHANEL, Christian Louboutin Beauté, Dior, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Gucci (its first new beauty concept store in the US, above), Kiehl’s Since 1851, La Mer, La Prairie, Sisley Paris, and Tom Ford.  By moving the Beauty Department to the second floor, Saks hopes to address the new ways customers shop and experience beauty.

Focusing more on on experiences, the floor now includes 15 new spa rooms along with services such as medi-spa treatments, facials, massages, manicures, brow services, a flower shop and more.  Saks curated treatments and luxury experiences for customers include services such as:

  • FaceGym, the original non-invasive facial workout, exclusive to Saks and the first shop in the United States.
  • Dedicated spa rooms for CHANEL, Clé de Peau Beauté, Dior, Kiehl’s Since 1851, La Mer, La Prairie, Martine de Richeville, SKINNEY MedSpa and Sisley Paris.
  • Brow and lash styling by Blink Brow Bar London, CoolSculpting and laser hair removal by SKINNEY MedSpa and manicures and meditation by sundays.
  • Martine de Richeville’s signature slimming, deep-tissue massage, Rémodelage, —a Saks exclusive and brand-first space in the United States.
  • Hand-tied floral arrangements by EB Florals, revolving around the composition of the fragrances and their seasonal availability.

This Valentine’s Day hit all the right notes with a customized gift from Pinrose.  The clever and inventive fragrance company from San Francisco offers customers a personalized online shopping experience that prescribes a unique “scent profile” after completing its online quiz.  Using the science of synesthesia (a neurological condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensory sensation of another), Pinrose connects one’s preferences for certain colors, shapes, sounds and textures, and maps the data onto the olfactory spectrum.

Pinrose has collaborated with renowned master perfumers, like David Apel, as well as top perfume houses to create and manufacture its ten signature perfumes.  Each fragrance offers complex, yet, creative recipes of notes that inspire and excite, with devilish names, such as, Garden Gangster, Cuddle Punk, Campfire Rebel, and Secret Genius.  With so many fabulous choices, we’d love to have them all!  That’s why we’re crazy about the brand’s Hero Gift Set.  Each features a bow-wrapped iridescent cosmetic bag filled with ten Petals of the entire Pinrose collection and a gift card, redeemable online, for a 30 mL bottle of your desired fragrance.

Pinrose is offering thirty lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Hero Gift Set (retail $55), simply by following them on Instagram or liking them on Facebook and entering  here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.
