On Tuesday March 24th, JEAN PATOU celebrated their historic legacy with a benefit for the Museum of the City of New York hosted by the Chairmen of the Directors Council, including Allison and Tara Rockefeller, Mark Gilbertson, Nicole Hanley Mellon, Celerie Kemble and Andrew Roosevelt, at Bergdorf Goodman's.


As over 100 guests arrived at the Good Dish Café on the Beauty Floor, they were greeted with glasses of Veuve Clicquot and bottles of JEAN PATOU's legendary scents, including JOY, JOY Forever, 1000 and Sublime, which they were able to spritz and sample. Guests also met with Thomas Fontaine, JEAN PATOU’s legendary perfumer who answered guests' questions about the scents and trends within the perfume industry.


Midway through, guests including Sharon Bush, Felicia Taylor, Somers Farkas, Lise Arliss, Wendy Carduner, Maggie Norris, Jamee Gregory, Nikita Mehta, Pat Saxby, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin, and All My Children actress, Taylor Gildersleeve paused as George Ledes, CEO BEAUTYFASHION, rose to introduce Mark Gilbertson, who thanked JEAN PATOU and Luxe Brands for co-sponsoring the Museum of the City of New York's forthcoming Fall Gala. He finished by welcoming Thomas Fontaine to the stage who gave a short history of JEAN PATOU and described how the designer was an innovator; a creator of the first unisex scent, the first tanning oil and the first lipstick. Fontaine then spoke about how JOY became known as the costliest fragrance in the world through its use of rare Jasmine Grasse, and how JOY Forever was developed as a way of continuing JEAN PATOU's legendary fragrance heritage.  


Additional guests included: Douglas Asch, Marisa Berman, Jeanette Bronee, Patty Buttacavoli, Fred Cabral, Wendy Carduner, Lee Davis, Walter Deane,Anait Dian, Noreen Dodge, Jilian Firestone, Jared Goss, Shane Inman, Carrie and Matt Kaplan, Thomas Knapp, Elizabeth Kogen, Homer Layne, Brad Livingstone Black, Bill Manger, Susan Madden,Alexis Marion, Nikita Mehta, Louise Meighan, Renee Nino de Rivera, Nicole Noonan, Maggie Norris, Pam Owens, Tatiana Perkin, Richard Rojas, Christine Schott-Ledes, Joseph Scrivani, Cassandra Seidenfeld, Jean Shafiroff, Gail Simmonete, Mark Simone, Richard Torrenzano, Steven Meighan, and Olga Yermolenko, and R. Couri Hay.
