The past couple of days may have felt like summer, but Saks Fifth Avenue is still planted firmly in spring. Yesterday marked the debut of Saks Glam Gardens, a celebration of the department store's beauty and fragrance brands that evokes the floral origins of many of their products. The windows on Fifth Avenue are basically a garden explosion, with more than 100,000 flowers displayed along the likes of perfumes from Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Tom Ford, Viktor & Rolf, and more—check out the full lineup in the gallery above.
Today, the flagship is kicking things off for customers with 15 custom beauty stations that include services like fragrance bottle monogramming, makeovers, quickie facials, and gift wrapping. Be on the looking for Saks-branded pedicabs offering complimentary rides to the store the weekend, and hand-tied bouquets that are complimentary with a $125 fragrance purchase today and Friday.
