It hasn’t been a great few weeks for Brand Trump. In recent days, companies and groups including Macy’s, NBC, Nascar, Serta, the PGA and clothing manufacturer PVH PVH +1.79% Corp. have all cut ties with The Donald following his controversial comments on Mexican immigrants.
Now, the country’s largest fragrance retailer has decided to stop working with the Republican presidential candidate following days of internal discussions.
“Perfumania is winding down its retail business with the Trump fragrance brand,” said a spokesperson for the Bellport, NY-based firm.
The publicly-listed company, best known for its mall stores, had marketed two separate scents inspired by the real estate mogul: Success by Trump, which retails at $49.60 for a 3.4 oz eau de toilette, and Empire by Trump.
The hits keep coming to the detestable Trump. It smells like victory.
Now, yet another world-class top chef is bailing on Trump. From Politico:
On Thursday, a day after Jose Andres announced he is abandoning his plan to open a restaurant at the Trump Washington hotel, slated to open in 2016, in light of Donald Trump’s controversial statements about illegal immigrants, the building’s other other high-profile restaurant tenant, Geoffrey Zakarian, issued a statement saying he was pulling out too.
“The recent statements surrounding Mexican immigrants by Donald Trump do not in any way align with my personal core values,” Zakarian said. “In light of this, I am unable to move forward with a restaurant in the Trump International Hotel. … Zakarian Hospitality employs many immigrants from nations all over the world, and I look forward to continuing this business culture in my future restaurants. We are a nation built from immigrants, my family included.”
