The Brazilian market to be the first to discover the new Clarins women’s perfume

Azzaro pour Homme is one the best sold perfumes in Brazil. Although it is still rather discreet in this country, the Clarins Fragrance Group is actually cornering a large share of the market… a good reason to choose it for a preview launch of Azzaro Pour Elle next May, with Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros as its icon.

Given the good results we have had with Azzaro Pour Homme, we have chosen to intensify our strategy over the next three years in Brazil, our most important market in Latin America”, explains Patricia Abergel, General Manager Latin America for the Clarins Group.

To start with, the market’s star men’s fragrance was the focus of a large media campaign in 2014. New packaging, new TV film, new visual, new face with Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries)… the brand has been occupying the various advertising, digital, and travel retail channels since last July.

In May 2015, Azzaro Pour Elle, the women’s version, will be launched as a preview in Brazil. The new fragrance will be promoted through a TV campaign with Ana Beatriz Barros as its icon – the Brazilian model who already appeared in the TV campaign of the men’s version.

Ultimately, in 2016, Brazilians will be able to discover a new Azzaro juice for men.

Taking time to get settled

Although they are mostly distributed through a selective network and on the Internet, the Clarins perfumes are gradually positioning themselves on the market: “our fragrances are doing well, Angel by Thierry Mugler is ranked 10 despite a limited presence”, Patricia Abergel explains.

And the Source, the concept of bottles endlessly refillable from “two-head” fountains in store, most certainly has something to do with the success of the two lines concerned, Angel and Alien. “It is a concept we must absolutely promote, as it is Thierry Mugler’s DNA, by highlighting loyalty, service, ecology, and economy”, she says.

Above all, the group pays close attention to its visibility. “Right now, we are enhancing our image and productivity, and then we will be seeking to develop distribution”, Abergel adds, although she specifies the group is not considering opening wholly-owned stores for now.

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
