    Default BPI grabs Annick Goutal distribution in USA

    Just because you lost John Varvatos doesn't mean you can't grow!

    In fact, Beaute Prestige International signed an exclusive multiyear deal for Annick Goutal fragrance distribution to the likes of Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's, and Nordstrom in the USA. This is similar to BPI's Hermes Parfums distribution deal signed last year. Annick Goutal remains in charge of manufacturing, while BPI handles the distribution network. According to BPI USA's Nicholas Munafo, the brand has "significant potential" in the US. I wonder if this means more stores that the venerable niche brand will be sold in?

    Thank you for the news. I hope, however, that this does not mean reformulation.

    I don't think so -- this is just a distributor, they aren't handling production.

    However, I don't have high hopes about greater availability, since they do Hermes, which has completely disappeared from my local Sephora AND Nordstrom!
    This scent is great, but ... MORE KITTENS!

    I hope Mimi Gardenia is right. Would love to see AG more available in brick and mortar stores. And, yes, let's hope this change is with distribution only and won't be the first step toward other changes.

    The reality remains to be seen.
