The smell of a sale is in the air. The Village Parfumerie is up for sale after 10 years of being in business.
For all these years, owners Patricia and Jon Hussey have the classic Galimard Scents and personal fragrance creations in their store. Jon said these scents come from one of France’s oldest perfumery.
“My wife and I lived in Gary, Indiana for 40 years,” Jon said. “After retiring we decided to move to Zionsville to be closer to our daughter and grandson, so we started this business as a way to keep busy. In 2004 we went to Grasse to be trained. Since then we have helped hundreds of people create their own custom fragrance.”
They are the only distributor of Galimard fragrances in Indiana, and they have customers across the United States, he said.
“We are now at the age where we need to really retire so this unique business is for sale,” he said. “We think it would be a shame for the Indianapolis/Zionsville area to lose such a unique business. Training would be provided to a purchaser of the business.”
The Village Partumerie is at 112 N. Main St. in the heart of the Village and on the bricks, and offers an intriguing collection of exquisite perfumes, lotions, crèmes, soaps and linen sprays according to their website thevillageparfumerie.com.
The Husseys provide unmatched and expert service to every customer.
“We pride ourselves on providing the utmost in personal attention and your satisfaction is always guaranteed,” Hussey said. “This is a very unique business, there is no competition in this area and buying our business would be a great opportunity for someone to do something quite different and take it to the next level.”
The price of the business has not been listed, but interested buyers are encouraged to contact Jon at 873-9707.
