Some of these reviews read silly for a Henri Bendel review - at least for the one in NYC. They don't sell clothing. How you can possibly get a Benefit person when you're not at their counter is beyond me.
I personally love this store - no i wouldn't call it a gift store - personally I wouldn't buy their jewelry - its costume jewelry and a little pricey at that - walking a few blocks will prove to get you very similar things for a fraction of the cost. I wouldn't buy their sandles - a little silly tbh. I avoid the makeup counters. I adore their bags. I adore their accessories. I adore their trinkets.
I have a love for everything Bendel - I truly do. If they were to sell a few more things - i would marry them. I don't know why they stopped carrying clothes - i remember shopping with my mom there when i was in High School and I loved their clothing. I think they should have a few signature pieces of clothing by them, for sale. Like, maybe a polo with the neck tape of the bendel stripes.. or a bendel striped long sleeved silk blouse - i would buy that in a heart beat. I don't know - I just want more. I don't go there for the makeup.. I know its asking too much but i would love if they replaced the makeup counters with clothes.
