perfume specialist.

The alliance between ready-to-wear, fashion accessories and
perfume, gave a lift to exhibitors and buyers alike, and allowed the boutiques to enlarge their product offer.

She also invited Muriel Abadie and Sophie Cuvelier to participate in an artistic path through the fair. The total number of visitors rose over previous session, a progression created by the presence of new buyers who came to visit the Perfume space.

France: 35% (versus 29% in February 2008 and International: 65% of which Europe 20% (versus 28% in February 2008), Asia 37% (versus 40% in February 2008), USA 3% (same as February 2008), Others 5% (versus 1,3% in February 2008).
