It may sound a bit confusing but Parfums Givenchy has opened their first U.S. store in France – the France Pavilion at Epcot. The small shop features the full range of Givenchy make-up, skincare and fragrances.
Minnie Mouse was on hand as Disney’s vice president of development and corporate alliances, Carlos Castro, and J.C. Gandon, general manager of Parfums Givenchy, cut the ceremonial ribbon. The shop takes over the former “Beauty and the Beast room” which was used as a rain location for photographs with the princess. It connects with the first existing perfume store in the pavilion. The Givenchy store will feature a couple of exclusive products available only at Epcot.
From Sept. 30 to Oct. 3, a special event will be held celebrating the opening of the boutique. Guests will have the opportunity to fully experience chic services and products from Givenchy with makeup artists and fragrance specialists.
“We are thrilled to open our full-range boutique of fragrances and cosmetics in the France Pavilion in Epcot.” said Gandon. “This is the only place in the United States where the entire range of Givenchy fragrances, skincare and make-up will be available under one roof. We think that Epcot and Givenchy both share the same mission to celebrate innovation and provide an outstanding experience to the consumer. I really believe this new boutique will soon become a favorite among visitors to the France Pavilion in Epcot.”
Parfums Givenchy was born out of the encounter between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, which led to the first fragrance, L’Interdit, in 1957. Givenchy was also a pioneer who launched the first men’s fragrances in the late ’50s. Today, Parfums Givenchy has a roster of modern muses like Liv Tyler, Uma Thurman and Justin Timberlake and star products like Phenomen’Eyes mascara.
