Personalization Can Help Fragrance Brands Compete In A Saturated Market, Ferragamo Parfums CEO Says

April 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Fragrance personalization could be an additional way to compete in a saturated fragrance market, according to Luciano Bertinelli, CEO of Ferragamo Parfums, part of the luxury company Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. He said, however, that additional sales from personalized fragrances would not be worth the complex business model it would require. Bertinelli said the perfume industry could benefit from intellectual property protection, which is currently lacking in fragrances. He said by combining stand-alone stores with their fashion business, global brands can enhance their image and attract customers who are not only interested in fragrances.

Kiehl's Proud Of Its History, Readies For More Growth As Part Of L'Oreal Family

March 31, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Personal care company Kiehl’s traces its origin to Brunswick Apotheke, a neighborhood pharmacy that opened in New York City in 1851. Then apprentice John Kiehl bought the company and renamed it Kiehl Pharmacy in 1884. In 1921, Irving Morse purchased the pharmacy from Kiehl and added skin and hair care products to its lineup. Morse encouraged customer sampling, with “try before you buy” becoming the pharmacy’s motto. In the 1960s, the company integrated Aaron Morse’s collection of vintage motorcycles to the pharmacy’s décor to help attract male customers. In 2000, Kiehl’s was sold to Cosmair, which later became L’Oreal USA.

In the United States, 32.2 percent of shoppers said they are currently buying more private-label brands, with only 6.6 percent of them saying they plan to return to name brands, according to a 2016 edition of “The Checkout” study.

Also, 8.2 percent of respondents said they are buying more store labels and plan to buy even more. Data also revealed a decline in consumer perception of name brands as offering more new products, varieties, and innovations, from 56 percent of respondents in 2010 to 45 percent in 2015. Among African-American consumers, more are likely to prefer name brands, with respondents saying they are more likely to perceive name brands as of higher quality than their private-label counterparts.

China Revises Taxation Rules For Imported Goods Sold Online

Organic sales rose 3.6 percent, driven by the 3.0 percent revenue growth in the company’s Consumer Domestic business and 8.1 percent revenue growth in its Consumer International business. According to the company, its gross profit margin for the period jumped 40 basis points to 44.5 percent, due to normalized pricing environment in the laundry category, reduced commodity costs, its productivity programs, and the impact of higher margins of its acquired businesses. Adjusted EPS rose 7.7 percent to $3.25 per share, compared with the previous year’s $3.01 per share.
