Henri Bendel, established in 1895, was a women's accessories store based in New York City that sold the Henri Bendel brand of handbags, jewelry, luxury fashion accessories, home fragrances and gifts. Its flagship New York store was located at 712 Fifth Avenue.Henri Bendel was the first retailer to have its own fragrance, to offer in-store makeovers, and to stage its own fashion show. The retailer is credited with developing the shop-within-a-shop merchandising concept that is in use in some department stores today. In the Cole Porter song from 1934 "You're the Top" made famous by Ethel Merman, Porter incorporates the line "You're a Bendel Bonnet - a Shakespeare Sonnet", immortalising the brand.
In September 2018 it was announced that the owner L Brands would close all 23 stores and end the brand. In January 2019, its physical stores and website were closed.
