ONEONONE This month we feature interviews with two beauty industry leaders who share their visions for their companies as well as how they are navigating these challenging economic times. Givaudan’s CEO Gilles Andrier sat down with Beauty Fashion’s Paris’ Bureau Chief Sarah Colton to discuss his bold new 5-year strategy to position the company for expansion in both the fragrance and flavor business. Mr. Andrier explains how he is using the corporate size of Givaudan to their best advantage and pursuing growth opportunities. Mike Indursky, President of bliss® met with me to discuss his new role with the company and his plans for shaping the brand as a “lifestyle.” Mr. Indursky sees bliss® as “a unique, multi-level marketing model.” Beauty industry ‘heroes’ are celebrated in events that we cover in this issue. Thia Breen, President North America of The Estée Lauder Companies was inducted into The Fragrance Foundation’s Circle of Champions. Cosmetic Executive Women honored five Achievers: Procter & Gamble’s Alex Keith, Clinique’s Janet Pardo, mark. and Avon Products’ Claudia Poccia, Carol’s Daughter’s Lisa Price and Coty Prestige’s Lori Singer. The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Skin Sense Award Gala helps promote awareness of this disease, and Beauty Fashion’s coverage highlights the leaders of this important effort. Our interest in what is happening at point-of-sale took us to the newly renovated beauty floor at New York City’s Lord & Taylor, where Dior Beauty opened its new, state-of-the-art installation. Dior Beauty’s installation “is an overwhelmingly light and beautiful space,” affirmed Brendan Hoffman, President & CEO of Lord & Taylor. Exploring the 18th annual HBA Global Expo and Conference at Manhattan’s Jacob K. Javits Center provided an insight into all facets of the beauty and personal care industries. We highlight the informative seminars and speakers at this meeting. Thanksgiving presents a time for us to express gratitude for family, friends and our American way of life. I give thanks for our readers and for the people who drive the sales every day at retail.

GILLES ANDRIER, CEO OF GIVAUDAN, PREVIEWS 5-YEAR STRATEGY Bold new 5-Year Strategy heralds a new era of creativity, innovation, and profitable growth as Givaudan continues to outperform the market and further expand its leading position in the fragrance and flavors industry. G i l l e s A n d r i e r, C E O o f Givaudan, met with Beauty Fashion to discuss Givaudan’s plans for the future impact of the entire industry, as the world market leader in fragrances and flavors. GILLES ANDRIER Before talking about Givaudan’s strategy for the new 5-year cycle, it’s important to summarize the substantive points of the most recent cycle which was notable for two reasons: the successful integration of Quest and the successful ‘weathering of the storm’ of the financial crisis which hit in 2009. SUCCESSFUL INTEGRATION OF QUEST Givaudan bought Quest three years ago, and the integration was successful in terms of combining the best of Quest and the best of Givaudan. The positive dynamics of this merger have been phenomenal, from a financial as well as a human point of view, with people from both companies working well together to establish a strong platform going forward. WEATHERING THE FINANCIAL CRISIS The financial crisis, which hit in 2009, both tested and substantiated Givaudan’s strength and resilience in the face of adverse market conditions. At the onset of the crisis, the general assumption was that the fragrances and flavors industry in general would be more resilient than other sectors, such as the automobile industry, because people have to eat, drink, wash, and carry out basic needs. This assumption, of course, had yet to be proven though, because the last huge financial crisis had been in 1929. A second unproven assumption was that within the fragrance and flavors industry, Givaudan, with the

addition of Quest, which made it 50% bigger—the total number of Givaudan employees grew from 6,500 to 8,300—would navigate the crisis in a better way and perhaps even come out stronger than before. In both counts the assumptions were proven to be correct. In 2009, despite the ravages of the crisis, the fragrances and flavors industry declined only 3% overall, [as compared, for example, to the automobile industry which declined 10%], while Givaudan grew 2% in this declining market, and actually gained market share. So, the successful integration of Quest and the successful weathering of the financial crisis storm has meant that the close of this previous cycle was very, very satisfactory. The new cycle is about leveraging the huge capabilities of Givaudan to continue to outgrow the market. CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF GIVAUDAN AS A PUBLICLY TRADED STOCK Ten years ago, in 2000, Givaudan was first listed on the Zurich Stock Exchange. At the time, we had 12% market share, compared to today, we have 25%. This strong financial performance can be attributed to a combination of acquisitions and organic growth during which Givaudan evolved from a small division of Hoffmann-La Roche in the 1990s to the clear leader of this industry. Our core aspiration over the past 10 years was to attain the Number One leadership position, and, having successfully done this, we will continue to strive daily to deserve it vis a vis our clients, the ultimate, and only true arbiters. USING SIZE TO OUR ADVANTAGE In maintaining this Number One position, size matters. We are the biggest overall, and we are also the biggest in every segment in every region. But size is not the only deciding factor of leadership, and from a client’s perspective, biggest does not necessarily mean best. We need to use our size to our best advantage, and there are numerous ways to do this. USING OUR BUSINESS MODEL—‘SMALL IN THE MIDDLE OF BIG’ Givaudan has 35 in-house fine fragrance Perfumers, each with associated support teams, and one way that our large size is advantageous is that we can access this large number of people to create numerous small teams, each dedicated exclusively to one client or one project. This extraordinary capacity is only possible if you have a (Continued on page 41)

he Fragrance Foundation honored Thia Breen, President North America of The Estée Lauder Companies as the eleventh honoree to be inducted into the Circle of Champions. Ms. Breen was celebrated and ‘roasted’ at a dinner held at New York City’s St. Regis Roof on October 5. Rochelle Bloom, President of The Fragrance Foundation, described Ms. Breen as a “poster child for integrity as well as a role model and teacher.” Ms. Breen follows past inductees including Leonard Lauder, Guy Peyrelongue, Annette Green, John Ledes and Donald Loftus. After dinner, Mr. Loftus, President and CEO of P&G Prestige US and last year’s ‘Champion,’ invited Ms. Breen to take a seat center stage for the ‘roast’ in the program “This Is Your Life.” Nancy McKay, Senior Vice President, Estée Lauder North America said it takes “a zero number of minutes for Thia to ‘get it.’” Laurie Dowley, Vice President of Elizabeth Arden, accompanied by a pianist, sang “That’s Why the Lady Is a Champ,” to paraphrase a Cole Porter song. Mr. Loftus wrapped up the evening with a hilarious toast to Ms. Breen’s early years growing up in central Minnesota. “She got her first sense of ‘space and location’ when she helped out in her father’s drugstore.” Ms. Breen graciously thanked all of the employees and Fragrance Sales Specialists of The Estée Lauder Companies. She credited Estée Lauder with awakening women to buy fragrances for themselves when she introduced the iconic Youth Dew in 1953. “Fragrance Sales Specialists love to sell fragrances, and we should thank them for closing the sale. They invite customers to experience fragrance every day.”

Launches Promise New Spins On Scents According to The Fragrance Foundation’s Fragrance Trends Forecast 2010, fragrance will be purchased in surprising new ways. Their research revealed that Internet and home shopping networks will be good vehicles for fragrance sales. “Pop-ups” will continue to offer an exciting and new “hurry before it leaves” experience for scent shoppers. There will be perfume on-the-go. There will be even bigger emphasis on samples so customers can try before they buy as well as smaller sizes to purchase, which is not such a big commitment. Sephora’s “Top Ten” gathered from research of an active online community of shoppers is a trusted indicator of consumer preferences. It will be more important to engage the consumer with discoveries in scents and the presence of “eye candy” to engage her interest. The Fragrance Foundation also recommends that lifestyle brands with strong followings should launch a signature scent. Here are the fragrances that are now at-counter to generate pre-holiday excitement.

JOIE DE VIVRE The image for Love, Chloé exudes spontaneous femininity and contagious beauty. Chloé loves life, makes others smile with her natural charm and in her every move. Her fragrance is a tribute to her unique personality, her aura and her symbol. Love, Chloé, introduced by Coty Prestige, was developed by Givaudan’s Perfumers Louise Turner and Nathalie Cetto-Gracia.

The fragrance comes in a 50 ml Eau de Parfum for $85.00 and 75 ml, $110.00. Ancillary products include 200 ml sizes of Shower Gel and Body Lotion for $50.00 and $45.00 respectively.

Where Beauty Meets Business In New York City


t the 18th annual HBA Global Expo and Conference, held at the Jacob K. Javits Center from September 28-30, all facets of the beauty and personal care industries converged. Produced by United Business Media (UBM), HBA Global was packed with over 600 exhibitor showcases featuring new product developments, informational seminars and an opportune chance for industry professionals to connect, with attendance totaling 16,479. The event kicked off with a keynote speech from Pamela Baxter, President and CEO of LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics North America, regaling attendees with stories from her earliest days at the beauty counter to her present day position as a leading force in the cosmetics industry. In a field that inherently evokes emotion and passion, raises self-esteem and is one of the few affordable luxuries, Ms. Baxter implored the audience to work “with passion, take risks and be flexible.” After Ms. Baxter’s address, Brian Mullaney, Co-founder of SMILE TRAIN, an organization that wholly funds both cleft lip and palate correctional surgery for millions of children in developing countries and surgical training to local doctors, presented the second annual Positively Beautiful award to Model and Philanthropist Christie SMILE TRAIN’s Brian Mullaney, Christie Brinkley and Pamela Baxter of Brinkley, for her participation in raising awareness for LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics this charity. As she accepted her award, Ms. Brinkley acknowledged the tremendous importance that a smile possesses and recognized that children with clefts are not only born without the ability to smile, but also without the possibility of attending school and often forgo marriage (a fundamental partnership in poorer nations). This surgery transforms the lives of those afflicted with the deforming condition, and although it is a quick and relatively inexpensive procedure, cleft surgery has been widely unavailable. Ms. Brinkley shared that approximately 94% of all donations to SMILE TRAIN come from compassionate individuals. Over thirty seminars offered this year at HBA Global, including “The Anti-Aging Path: Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Social Media: Marketing For The 21st Century,” gave industry leaders an opportunity to speak openly and share their expertise. Lectures provided various learning opportunities within multiple components of the cosmetic and personal care industries. “The Changing Face of Beauty Distribution,” which featured Howard Kreitzman, Vice President, Cosmetics and Perfume of Bloomingdale’s, Marla Malcolm Beck, The exhibitor’s floor at HBA Global Expo (Continued on page 47) NOVEMBER 2010 /

DIOR BEAUTY Debuts New Installation At

LORD & TAYLOR On October 1, Lord & Taylor and Dior Beauty celebrated the opening of the brand’s state-ofthe-art installation showcasing color, skincare and fragrance. “This has been a long-overdue renovation [for the store],” declared Terry Darland, President, Parfums Christian Dior for North America. “Not since 1975 has Lord & Taylor’s cosmetics floor been under a complete overhaul. The old Dior bay was a 150 square-foot generic space that was falling apart. This new installation is double that in size and a million times more beautiful and glamorous. I like to think of it as going from a 1960’s VW bug to a 2010 Mercedes Benz.”

Dior Beauty’s Lorraine Mushio and Terry Darland (r.) with Lord & Taylor’s Barbara Zinn-Moore and Brendan Hoffman at the ribboncutting for the new installation

Lord & Taylor’s Liz Rodbell joins Mr. Hoffman, Ms. Darland and Ms. Zinn-Moore in a celebratory moment.

“Thanks to Dior Beauty for an overwhelmingly light and beautiful space,” affirmed Brendan Hoffman, President & CEO of Lord & Taylor at the ribbon-cutting. “Our appreciation goes to Terry and [Lord & Taylor’s Senior Vice President/ GMM] Barbara Zinn-Moore’s teams for their support. “The bay’s location ties in to the overall renovation of the department,” explained Dior Beauty’s Bill Shaffer, Senior Vice President of Store Design and Visual Merchandising for North America. “We have traction down the main aisle.” According to Mr. Shaffer, the design of the installation was a collaboration between Dior Beauty’s market team in Paris and his team in New York. “With double the amount of space we formerly had, we can really show the Dior Beauty products in the best light. We can project the latest evolution of a state-of-the-art Dior Beauty installation.” “Dior Beauty’s bay has gone from a generic to a personalized space,” he explained. “We can fan out products and show them in their best light. They are not all jammed on top of each other. With the ability to spread out displays, there is more room to make clear presentations of both makeup and skincare products. If a customer wants to browse and shop on her own, this is a much better set-up for her.” (Continued on page 52)

SETS COURSE FOR In his new role as President of bliss®, Mike Indursky is building on a brand that has a unique place in the spa/retail environment. Recently, Beauty Fashion sat down with Mr. Indursky to learn about his plans for the company and where he sees the growth of the brand. Beauty Fashion: How would you define Bliss World Holdings and the relationship between bliss® and Laboratoire Remède? Mike Indursky: Bliss World Holdings has two truly unique and much differentiated spas with bliss® and Laboratoire Remède. Bliss® is all about well-being and happiness, with effective treatments and serious results. Laboratoire Remède is really about 5-star skincare and 5-star service. BF: In your new role at bliss®, what is your overall vision for the company? MI: The vision is to go from a spa company to one that really encompasses total well-being. When people think about bliss®, they consider it more than a brand. It’s a lifestyle. People don’t necessarily want a lifestyle of certain beauty brands, but they do want a lifestyle of bliss®. That is what we want to be able to deliver. BF: What do you believe are the strengths of bliss®? MI: Bliss® is actually a very unique brand that has an overall fun positioning, Mike Indursky but there is also a very high-level of seriousness behind the fun. The brand is all about incredible spa serivces—not the pampering, luxurious spa services but truly efficacious spa services. The products used on clients in the spas are informed by, used by and tested by our spa technicians. They are also available to consumers. That spa-to-product link is very important and special to us. We are the only brand that can make this connection. Along with a fun personality, we also have a unique go-to-market approach. We have spas, products, a catalog and a Web site where we sell not only our brands but others as well. Because of our many different points of merchandising and distribution, bliss® has a truly a unique, multi-level marketing model. Unlike companies that develop a product and launch it, we have over 400 spa employees who get to use our products to give us feedback and input on the development and performance of the product. For example, we have the ‘pore’-fector gadget, a sonic-powered, deep-cleaning device that is great for removing sebum. But, our spa technicians discovered that when it is used correctly, it is also excellent for exfoliation. This is an important benefit, which we need to communicate to the customers. We’re getting better at doing this before rather than after the fact. BF: What have you determined needs tweaking at bliss®? MI: At bliss®, we are all about continuous improvement. Before we pursue our vision for the company moving forward, it is really important that we strengthen the core of the brand. First, we must better communicate our spa-to-product message. When you go to some retailers where our products are sold, they are differentiated and look great on shelves, but you don’t always get that spa-to-product relationship story. To change that, we’ve developed an entirely new merchandising system and a new way to communicate our (Continued on page 54) NOVEMBER 2010 /

Thia Breen, The Estée Lauder Companies’ President, North America, and Laurie Dowley, Elizabeth Arden’s Senior Vice President, hosted a party for beauty industry executives at their home to support the Jane Scott Scholarship Fund at the Fashion Institute of Technology. They were continuing an annual tradition which began as a girl’s night out ten years ago, for friends who worked in the beauty industry and wanted to meet for a non-business occasion. Jane Scott, Vice President/DMM at Bloomingdale’s was killed in a bicycle accident ten years ago. Four years later, her friends at Girl’s Night Out decided to build their annual gathering into a benefit for the Jane Scott Scholarship Fund. According to Ms. Dowley, one of the founders of Girl’s Night Out, the first benefit raised about $2,500. “This year’s event will match what we’ve raised in the last four years, with a total of almost $12,000,” declared Estée Lauder’s Senior Vice President Nancy McKay, another founder of Girl’s Night Out. “The fact that we can all come together once a year [and support this cause] is wonderful,” added The Estée Lauder Companies’ Senior Vice President Karyn Khoury, the third member of the founding trio.

NOTES FROM PARIS (continued from page 24)

certain size, because if you do not, and still want to go after a large number of clients, you must continuously arbitrate your resources as you share them among clients. ‘Small in the middle of big,’ which essentially amounts to a bespoke service, is something we have established as a successful business model for our clients. Our clients have an exclusive and dedicated flavor team, driving creation within a focused understanding of their brands, identities and targeted consumer groups. From a historical perspective, this was the spirit and signature of Roure and Quest, and it continues to live on and thrive in the larger Givaudan structure. DEDICATING AND INVESTING SIZEABLE RESOURCES IN GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES Another way that size works to our advantage is that it allows us to dedicate and invest sizeable resources in important growth opportunities. Although we are large, we must still continue to grow, and in the next five years, investing in growth opportunities will be an important priority for us. We will be dedicating enormous resources as we invest in growth opportunities in the form of new clients and new segments, such as the health and wellness sector and the developing market sector, where we are currently enjoying double digit growth rates, and which is going to be the engine for our growth going forward. INVESTING SIZEABLE RESOURCES IN R&D Because of our size, we are able to invest vast resources into Research & Development (R&D), and that’s what our clients expect. Today, R&D is more important than ever before, as many of our clients are innovation driven with specific innovation strategies in relation to developing markets. In the area of health and wellness, for example, most governments currently force food and beverage companies to remove or reduce salt from products and applications, sometimes as much as 40%, with similar requirements for sugar and fat. As we all know, sugar and salt are absolutely wonderful products from a taste standpoint: sugar, because you have the sweetness and mouthful sensory attributes, and salt because it enhances the tastes of everything else. These flavors are also extremely difficult to replace, and the minute you take them out of food applications it can become very frustrating. Essentially, health and wellness issues today are about sweet, salt and fat, and the difficult task of finding substitutes for them has become something of the search for ‘The Holy Grail.’ At Givaudan, we are creating some unique taste ingredients which help replace all of these products. Regarding sugar, for example, the challenge is dealing with the frustrating bitter after-note that artificial sweeteners give. We are coming in with ‘bitter-blockers’ and NOVEMBER 2010 /

‘sweet enhancers.’ The beauty of the ingredients we are developing is that they are all derived or extracted from naturals. ‘CONSUMER-CENTERED’ INNOVATION AND GIVAUDAN’S FIFI AWARD-WINNING MIRIAD 2.0 In innovation, everything leads to the consumer. It takes bold and brave moves to launch fragrances that will withstand the test of time, and as we all know, too much market testing can kill creativity. If you look at fine fragrances, it’s true that this industry suffers from lack of creativity resulting in too much more of “the same old thing.” The challenge is finding the right balance between sheer creativity and responding to consumer expectations through market tests. To help navigate this balance, Givaudan is continuously developing and refining consumer understanding tools. One of the recent outcomes of this is Givaudan’s Miriad 2.0, for which we received the FiFi Award for Best Technology in 2010. Miriad 2.0 brings consumer perception right into the heart of the creative process. As Michael Carlos, head of fragrances at Givaudan has so rightly observed, “Consumer understanding is fundamental to successful fragrance design, as it nourishes and enriches the creative process and ultimately, the potential of our clients’ brands.” Another driving force in successful fragrance development is connecting to mood and emotion. Givaudan is constantly developing tools which help to correlate fragrances with the moods and emotions that they can trigger at consumer end point. Finding and crossing these bridges is another ‘Holy Grail’ that Givaudan is pursuing, and yet another part of the whole magic and mystery of fragrances. There are also numerous connections between flavors and fragrances, and interestingly, much of the strength we inherited with Quest was success in this area of research. Consumers are very sensitive about what they immediately like, and they love fragrance ingredients that remind them of edible flavors. That’s, of course, what the success of Thierry Mugler’s ANGEL was all about and has much to do with our survival instinct. Olfaction (smell) is ultimately about memory, and a consumer may or may not like a fine or household fragrance because of a good or bad experience it may trigger in the memory, which perhaps can be associated with a food. Breaking down barriers and crossing bridges between formerly discreet and separately defined entities, as well as transforming vertical hierarchies into a horizontal structure of mutual respect and inspiration is something Givaudan is keen upon doing. There are so many connections to make all across the ingredients palette, and we are constantly looking to find them. There is only ONE consumer, and he or she interacts with a lot of 41

NOTES FROM PARIS smells and tastes without necessarily being entrenched into thought patterns, which dictates that ‘soap should smell like a rose,’ or ‘detergent should smell like lemons.’ Today, many of the walls which have been built over time have crumbled, opening the way for fundamental changes. Remember, for example, how a number of years ago, dishwashing detergents were primarily lemon flavored, whereas now we can enjoy more contemporary fragrances like basil, lavender, and others. Similarly, many of the smells traditionally associated with fine fragrances are finding their way into other applications, such as air-care or deodorants. As another example of our work in this area, Givaudan has set up a room in our New York headquarters, filled with a vast range of different products, such as hair care and shampoo, edible products, household products, detergent, etc., where a client consumer group can go around and build their own bridges, as they navigate between tastes and the world of smell. INVESTING SIZEABLE RESOURCES IN NEW MOLECULES Fragrance creation requires talent and raw materials. These two elements are key in this business. Finding new molecules is essential for new creations, and going forward, Givaudan will continue to invest sizeable resources in the development of new molecules. Every year, we develop between three and five new molecules, more than all of the other industry players combined. Deciding which molecules to develop is a complicated question because if you only go by the figures, you might kill some potentially great molecules. For this reason we are constantly sponsoring a number of very creative molecules, which might not stand out at first but have great potential in the long run. This is how some of the most important molecules we use today have evolved. Examples of these are Isou E super, Hedione, Peonile, and Undecavertol which were developed a number of years ago by the industry players. Perfumers are constantly observing each other within our industry, and the minute a molecule is seen to be enjoying a certain success, perfumers will want to use it themselves, and that’s when a new molecule starts to become popular. This is especially the case in fine fragrance, but it applies to commercial perfumery as well. Any molecule that Givaudan has developed on its own is a ‘captive’ molecule, meaning that it is under patent with the company for an initial period of several years and can only be used by our Perfumers. This gives Givaudan a competitive advantage in terms of cost, enhanced creativity and performance, especially when one of our ‘captives’ becomes extremely popular.


DEVELOPING MARKETS Today our sales in developing markets represent more than 41% of total sales. In five years time, we want this figure to be close to 50%. It’s important to understand that the developing market is not just about China and India. Latin America, Indonesia and particularly Brazil, are also experiencing a huge growth explosion. The beauty of the Brazilian market is that Brazilians are exceptional ‘scent lovers.’ The percent of capital expenditure on anything related to fragrances is close to that of the US or other western countries in absolute value. And considering the fact that per capita income is much lower, the percentage of what Brazilians spend is much bigger than in many other countries. It may surprise you, but today, the fine fragrance market in Brazil is bigger than that of the US. And this has been the case for the past two years. This presents an enormous opportunity for international fine fragrance groups, because today the market is dominated by regional champions such as Natura and O Boticario. In addition to this, you also have the whole of CentralEastern Europe, The Middle East, and now, Africa which are starting to grow. We calculate that out of two billion people, roughly 300 million have access to high-end westernized type standards of products while the remaining 800 million only have basic, basic things and no access to flavored products. This means that the growth opportunity for us, and for all of our clients, is found in a combination of demographics and ‘trading up.’ Demographically, there are going to be increasing numbers of people using soaps and manufactured products. For personal hygiene, populations start trading up from scented soaps to shower gels. For laundry needs, they move up from unscented to scented bar soap to wash their clothes, and then to powder detergents, liquid detergents and ultimately to softeners. These populations are by no means monolithic in terms of disposable income, and there is much greater polarity than in the US or Western Europe. You have the super-rich and the super-poor. The super-rich can afford Dior and Prada, and we access them through fine fragrance channels such as duty-free and high-end stores, where all the major brands sell their products. The super poor don’t use any of our products, while the poor start with soap. The primary target for developing countries is the growing middle class, and we are going after them with the same products you and I are using every day, but at much lower price points. The flavors, the detergents, shower gels, the hair care, all of these things are at lower price points than what you would find at Monoprix [supermarket] here in France or other western European countries or the US, because that’s what the consumer can afford.

NOTES FROM PARIS Developing markets are entering the fragrance world from a starting point of basic needs and mal-odor coverage. Interestingly, one of the issues in developing markets is fabric care, because air can be extremely hot and smelly with odors coming from outdoor cooking and automobile pollution. An upwardly-mobile person does not want to go to his or her office in clothing that smells like boiled rice and gasoline. GAINING MARKET SHARE IN MATURE MARKETS An important goal for Givaudan is to outgrow the market by twice as much, amounting to a 5% growth, every year. In addition to leveraging our strength in the areas mentioned previously, this also means that we need to go after markets and clients in mature market sectors where we are slightly under-represented. We see great opportunities with clients in food and beverage sectors, and we are going after pockets of growth in these sectors. Examples of this in the US are in food services and small regional clients. GETTING ELECTED TO MORE CORE LISTS In order to compete in these mature markets, we need to get elected to more core lists. We plan to do this by increased marketing of Givaudan’s strength in products and services compared to our competitors and showing what we can bring to the table that competitors can’t. Once this is accomplished, it’s then a question of mobilizing our vast resources to deliver what we have promised. Air-care, as in air wicks and aerosols, is one example of an area where we are currently slightly under represented. There are also some segments in food and beverage categories in which we are under represented—usually for historic reasons. INCREASING GIVAUDAN’S SHARE OF WOMEN’S FINE FRAGRANCES Givaudan has historically been known for its large number of men’s fine fragrances. Going forward, Givaudan intends to increase its share of women’s fine fragrances. Quest brought a number of women’s fragrances to the group, and we have already made a lot of progress towards increasing our numbers over the last two or three years since the merger. In fact, fine fragrances is one of the two or three areas where the combination of Quest and Givaudan has been most spectacular in terms of what Quest brought to Givaudan and to our clients. We currently have four women’s, and five men’s prestige fine fragrances in the US and European top 20. In fine fragrances, diversity is extremely important for creativity. Before the Quest acquisition, we had 20 fine fragrance Perfumers. Now we have 35 dedicated fine fragrance Perfumers around the world, each with diverse

and individual styles, and each with established clientbased relationships. This is unmatched in the industry. What this means from a client’s point of view is that in choosing to work with Givaudan, he or she is not limited to working with a small handful of star Perfumers who continue to be recycled among clients. It’s important to remember that a Perfumer can only create so many fragrances in a 40-year career, and an even smaller number of classics. With 35 Perfumers, we have as many styles as we have Perfumers, and Givaudan offers clients an enormous amount of diversity and freshness. And as I mentioned earlier, because of our size, we can offer clients the ‘small group within the large,’ which essentially means that when working with a Givaudan perfume team, a client has the equivalent of bespoke service and dedicated resources (including use of our captive molecules). Because of this, Givaudan is unrivalled in servicing clients with the best and most diverse palette. We are continuously fueling and feeding our Perfumers’ talents through our unique perfumery school. Again, because of our size we can afford to enroll three to four new Perfumers every year. During the first and second years at our school, perfumery students follow a general program, and then specialize in the third year. By the time they graduate, they know exactly where they are going within the worldwide team of Givaudan Perfumers. DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE NATURALS Just as it is important to develop new molecules, it’s also important to develop new naturals which can expand the diversity of the Perfumer’s palette. In using the term ‘naturals,’ I refer to ‘taken from nature.’ This is an activity which can take many forms. It can, for example, mean finding a new and sustainable source for a raw material whose current source has become, or is becoming, unsustainable. Givaudan is committed to developing equitable sources of raw materials, which are non-exploitive of land or populations. This often means becoming involved in the creative and positive development of local economies, through the building of schools or other infrastructures. In our ongoing ethical sourcing program, Givaudan helped build schools in Laos, where local populations are involved in our benzoin harvests. It can also mean finding new sustainable sources to replace non-sustainable sources of raw materials. For instance, Givaudan has been active in the development of sandalwood plantations in Australia to replace non-sustainable sources in India. In all these areas, whether it is tonka bean in Venezuela, sandalwood in Australia, vanilla beans in Madagascar or benzoin in Laos, Givaudan has worked hand-in-hand with local populations and governments to maintain sustainable and equitable sources of raw materials, and this work has been extremely (Continued on page 61)

GREEN SPACE Washington Square is a green oasis at the base of Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village, surrounded by Greek Revival townhouses and New York University mega-buildings. For the centennial of President George Washington’s inauguration, an arch designed by Architect Stanford White was erected at the north end of the square. This public space frequented by students, professors, drifters, chess and bocce players as well as moms with kids in strollers, is the inspiration for Bond No. 9’s new fragrance, Washington Square. The juice for Washington Square opens on a top note of Italian bergamot, geranium and tarragon. Its middle note of purple rose and honey is based on a drydown of amber, leather accord, vetiver and musk. It is presented in a bottle that marks a first for Bond No. 9. The flacon displays a contemporary vision of Washington Square viewed through its arch past casually dressed park-goers in the foreground. This photonegative image even reveals the coffered square panels of the arch’s interior. Bond No. 9 Washington Square comes in a 1.7 oz. size for $150.00 and 3.4 oz., Bond No. 9 Washington Square is $230.00. There is also a gold pocket spray for $95.00.

EAUX OF SUCCESS HARD CANDY Superstar Mariah Carey and Elizabeth Arden have partnered to bring a portfolio of fragrances to consumers. Their latest scent collection is Lollipop Bling, which is an innovative, candy-inspired trio of fragrances. “The inspiration for Lollipop Bling was Nick’s marriage proposal to me,” confided Ms. Carey. “He first surprised me with a Ring Pop®—romantic, fun and young-at-heart—like me! The three scents of Lollipop Bling make me smile, and I can’t wait to share them with my fans.” The Lollipop Bling fragrance collection is a breakthrough concept in the fragrance category.

HBA GLOBAL EXPO & CONFERENCE (continued from page 28)

Founder & CEO of Bluemercury, Inc. and Donna Tarantino-Loyle, Director of Health and Beauty of ShopNBC, discussed the unique ways in which they were able to find their niches and their abilities to create solid store-fronts (either actual and on television) by finding a unique connection with the consumer. Creating loyalty and building consumer relationships were of the most crucial importance between the panelists, also including Ada Polla, Founder and CEO of Alchimie Forever. During the “Creating A Successful Beauty Brand” seminar, Jamie Kern Lima, CEO of IT Cosmetics, gave first-hand recommendations of beginning a business, including the importance of creating products that were different from anything else offered to consumers and accepting the possibility of multiple failures before any eventual success. “What Women Want: The Consumer at Every Age” highlighted the magnitude of finding the specific and multi-faceted traits of targeted consumer groups. Maybelline’s Peggy Lee, AVP – Creative, discussed how age as well as location, influenced purchasing patterns and emphasized that “recognizing where she [the consumer] is physically, mentally and emotionally” was most important when addressing her needs. This year’s convention featured Trend Spot, a designated area that provided makeup application demonstrations, hosted over 150 new ABA Packaging’s Charles Marchese and exhibitors, international pavilions and held the annual HBA International Mike Warford Package Design Awards.

story at retail, on our Web site and in our catalog. If we don’t make that spa-to-product connection clear, then we’re just another brand—and bliss® is not just another brand. Secondly, we are always improving our customer service, which most manufacturers don’t have to deal with. They ship the products to retailers and that’s it. We have 21 spas around the world and hundreds of thousands of consumers who come to our spas. Every person needs to feel special when they come to our spas. It’s really about making sure that anything short of leaving our spa saying, “That was the best service I’ve ever had” is a failure to us. We are always trying to improve our game by working with our talent—from our Guest Service Associates (GSA) all the way to our Managers. We have a program called the Best Tech on the Planet, which is an international training program for new and existing spa technicians. We want to make sure they are the best Technicians and are consistently learning and improving their skills. We do believe we have the best, and most requested technicians in the world. BF: What is the process for training Spa Technicians at bliss®? MI: We begin by hiring highly experienced people. Our techs are already the most knowledgeable in their field; we strive to make sure they are learning every single day—not only the bliss® way, but in overall spa. Each tech goes through an extensive, multi-week training in treatment protocol, hands-on testing and product education. Then we take them through the Guide To Greatness program. It’s our internal program, which covers everything about our brand from the exceptional customer service to the unique brand standards, even the brownies that we provide as a treat for customers. Currently, we are reevaluating and updating the Guide To Greatness program. As you learn more about customer service, you notice little things that you were not previously aware of that offer an opportunity for improvement. The Guide To Greatness and the Best Tech on the Planet programs are critical components of our brand. BF: Will you expand your research and development to bring more unique bliss® products to customers? MI: Our product development is done internally in our New York City headquarters, and we also have a lot of external partners. We are going to be expanding our R&D driven by innovation. BF: You now have a bliss® fragrance. Are there any plans to expand that portfolio? MI: The bliss® fragrance was developed by MANE USA prior to my arrival at the company, and I came on board just as it was launched. I have had a long relationship with MANE USA, and they are terrific. [In the formulation], they were able to hint at the scent and sentiment of the spa but also capture that amazing bliss® feeling of happiness, contentment and wonder you have after having the best service at the spa. MANE USA was so good at doing that, and we couldn’t be happier with their work. We are getting a lot of great comments and press about the bliss® fragrance, which is a beautiful juice. For people who have had a stressful day and can’t get a massage, they can have a spritz. We are very proud of bliss® eau de toilette. It is not our goal to be a major fragrance player, although we are not ruling out the possibility of doing another one down the road. BF: How are you driving sales of bliss® products and do you have any plans for expanding the channels of distribution? MI: When a guest finishes their treatment at a bliss® spa, she is given a blisscription by a spa technician with the recommended skincare regimen and suggested products (bliss® and other brands). We ensure recommendations that are best for that client’s skin. The customized blisscription informs what products have been used on the client or ones that she should be using. When she goes to the GSA, they will help her find those products and answer any questions. We try not to be too aggressive. When you have a bliss® spa experience, the last thing you want is to fend off a sales pitch. We really try to have a very low-key approach, and there is no pressure to purchase. Here is a basket with the recommended products that could help you. It’s your choice whether you want to purchase at check-out or not. To improve this process, we are looking at a whole new level of merchandising to better explain the products. We will be testing this concept shortly, and it is slated to roll out in the first quarter. This merchandising program is about better communicating how that spa service translates into products with an explanation of each one. We will



/ B E A U T Y FA S H I O N

be initiating it in our bliss® spas and then rolling it out to retail. Our retail partners really want to work with us on implementing this new merchandising concept in their stores. After the customer’s service at a bliss® spa, the spa technician sends a personalized note [as a follow-up]. It’s a wonderful way to keep the relationship going. However, we don’t have any continuity program on products. BF: How well do you believe the bliss® message is perceived by consumers at this point? Will you use any new ways to get out the bliss® message? MI: The understanding people have of bliss® is probably mixed. Everyone gets the bliss® happy spirit, and some have a better understanding of that spa link than others. Our goal is to have people see bliss® as a spa-inspired brand. We intend to improve the communication about bliss® products. Even if there is not a bliss® spa in a city or town, consumers will know about the bliss® spa. They will know why these products are unique and different from every other manufacturer’s products. We will achieve this through in-store communication. It’s part of that go-to-market merchandising concept I referred to. Consumers will know about the bliss® story and what role our products play in the bliss® spa experience. BF: How will social media fit in to your plans to grow the company? MI: Social media, especially for a small brand like ours, is very important. We have incredibly loyal consumers, and we are looking to continue and build on that relationship. We have made a lot of changes internally to accommodate our expansion of social media. In the last four months, we’ve grown our Facebook fan base by 40% and grown our Twitter followers over 20%. The key point to remember is that people must believe it is worth their time to go on our Facebook page and look at our Tweets, or they will fall off. The fact that we have gotten such quick growth shows that our content is relevant. We are now using Facebook and Twitter in a more meaningful way, and we are seeing a big difference as well as getting a lot of followers. In order to harness the power of social media, you have to engage. Engaging the client is what we do best at the bliss® spa. By using social media, we are able to interact with our customers, even if there is not a bliss® spa in their market. If a person sees someone talking on Twitter to another, they will ask, “What are they talking about?” So, it grows a social circle. If we say something relevant and give insightful information on the bliss® spa, then they are Tweeting it to all of their followers. Social media is a good fit for bliss®. It’s a delicate balance of communicating our opinion and our voice and speaking the consumer’s language as well. If we’re too branded, someone may not want to engage with us because it might feel insincere or too aggressive. But, if it’s welcome and engaging, it is just like talking to someone in the spa. BF: Have you set any goals for bliss® at this point? MI: I was so excited to join this company because the bliss® brand has got such potential in every part of the business—telling our story through better communication, quality of distribution and also going for aggressive growth internationally. At this point, our international business is relatively small. We have been contacted by countries all around the world, and now, as part of Steiner Leisure Limited, a global company, we have the resources in place to start going after that expansion of international business. We currently have bliss® Spas in Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Barcelona and Doha. We also have distribution in all of those places. There is a big difference between being in the market and of the market. You can be in any market, but to be of the market means subscribing to consumers’ needs, their language and everything else about them. From a social media standpoint, it’s about making sure they get the bliss® experience, but in a way that suits their needs, their understanding and their curiosity. From a product innovation standpoint, we must make sure we target the beauty regimens and needs for each country. We must have knowledge of the market and make sure we are able to meet its needs before we enter a market. There is a tremendous upside [to the bliss® brand]. It is seen for its uniqueness. So many of the American brands, especially in the prestige category, look alike. Nothing looks like bliss®, and we’re happy about that. We have a lot of opportunity in innovation. The biggest challenge is not what to do, but what to do first. BF

Customers are most significantly looking for innovation, newness and the assurance of significant results. With the immediate accessibility of the Internet, consumers are savvier than ever before. With instantaneous product knowledge, from customer reviews and ingredient information, consumers have become more confident and, in turn, more willing to spend money on proven results.

a best seller and that it “was difficult to keep the lipsticks in stock.” In twelve gorgeous colors, the Private Blend Lip Color Collection contains moisturizers like murumuru butter and soja seed and are beautifully packaged in an ivory and gold case.

Mauro Solorio, Sak’s Beauty Advisor for Dolce & Gabbana

The San Francisco Saks is also home to the new prestigious Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Boutique and is one of only four Saks stores in the country to carry the line, quite the cosmetics coup. According to Mauro Solorio, Saks’ Dolce & Gabbana Beauty Advisor, the biggest seller is the new Evocative Beauty Collection. The collection was inspired by a woman’s “fierce sensuality anchored by her innermost femininity,” according to Domenico Dolce. The ad campaign, which features Scarlett Johansson, showcases a key makeup trend for fall—dark lipstick. Each lip product is infused with a trademark rose scent, reminiscent of old-Hollywood glamour. “The rose has always been an icon to us, representing deep womanly sensuality in full bloom, so it seemed natural that it served equally as inspiration in our quest for the perfect collection of lipsticks, and each lipstick shares an intoxicating velvety smooth fragrance redolent of the wild rose gardens of Sicily,” Mr. Dolce said recently. The look is seriously seductive, inspired by the rogue spirit of today’s Sicily and saluting the sartorial spirit of its proud past. Also new at Saks was Cartier’s collection of fragrances, Les Heures de Parfums. The house of Cartier celebrates their 100-year anniversary with this unisex collection. These luxurious fragrances are all references to Cartier’s history, inspired by moments in time. Created by inhouse Perfumer Mathilde Laurent, the lineup took two years to develop and exhibits Cartier at its bespoke best. Golden details on the flacons and cartons insinuate that highest quality of ingredients were used in these perfume compositions. The fragrances are as follows: I L’Heure Promise (The Promising Hour) “represents a moment of possibility,” VI L’Heure Brilliante (The Shining Hour) “was inspired by high-energy nightlife and neon effervescence,” X L’Heure Folle (The Crazy Hour) “was inspired by Cartier’s Tutti Frutti jewelry collection,” XII L’Heure Mystérieuse (The Mysterious Hour) and XIII La Treizième Heure, the 13th hour, described by Ms. Laurent as “olfactive trickery.” NOVEMBER 2010 /

RéVive was launched after Dr. Brown successfully employed a multi-million dollar study on the cosmetic application of Nobel Prizewinning Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), a molecule Dr. Gregory Brown, RéVive Founder originally famed for its healing effects on burn victims and one that rejuvenates otherwise healthy skin. He began using RéVive on patients in 1991 and obtained the cosmetic patent for EGF in 1994. “We were able to show real results objectively with biopsies to prove we increased cell turnover,” Dr. Brown states. “There is nothing surgically that can do what RéVive does to give one the dewy glow and beautiful skin of youth. If used as a daily regimen, RéVive can delay plastic surgery and will ultimately decrease the magnitude of any surgical procedure ever desired or needed.” Mr. Lea’s passion for RéVive skincare is very meaningful both professionally and personally. Having lived and breathed beauty for the majority of his professional career, Mr. Lea’s experience includes in-house sales development and strategic sales growth initiatives for brands including Bliss and Boucheron. Mr. Lea works closely with RéVive founder Dr. Brown on every step of the product development process and serves as a senior brand representative and spokesperson for the brand. Dr. Brown and Mr. Lea evaluated skincare needs and discussed concerns on a one-on-one basis with clients. This event truly represents the best of RéVive and Neiman Marcus. BF

NOTES FROM PARIS (continued from page 43)

encouraging. A second way of developing new naturals is to add value to already existing naturals through innovation. Thus innovation in new naturals can come from specific and unique qualities of existing naturals (featured in our Orpur collection), new extraction or treatment techniques of naturals, but also in investigating the global biodiversity in order to find new botanical species never used before in perfumery (like our exclusive red ginger from Laos). Givaudan is also investing in biosciences and enzymatic treatments of naturals, which will broaden the scope for new naturals in the coming years. The possibilities are immense, and they all expand opportunities of diversity of Perfumers’ palettes for the benefit of the consumer. A third way of developing new naturals is to go hunting for them. This is exactly what we do with our ScentTrek™ program. Teams of Givaudan scientists travel the world looking for new, and often totally unknown, naturals. They might find them growing in the canopy of a tropical rain forest or in an isolated desert region. In most cases, the discoveries are more inspirational [than actual usage] because it would be impossible to cultivate some of the flowers that grow at the top of canopy of the Rainforest or in a remote desert region, and it would not be feasible or advisable to cut them down and bring them back to the lab. Instead, our teams take what we call ‘head-space’ readings [identifying and measuring the molecules in the fragrant air immediately surrounding the plant or flower], and then synthetically replicating this unique formula in a lab. Two words that go hand in hand in Givaudan’s strategy for growth are innovation and sustainability. It’s important to realize that as the world’s population continues to grow, land use planning will become increasingly important, and when facing the challenge of feeding six billion people, ylang-ylang and roses will certainly not be top priorities when competing with wheat or rice. For this reason, the search for sustainable naturals becomes even more apparently crucial. Givaudan’s updated 5-Year Strategy is a solid commitment to our belief that by husbanding the benefits of our size and strength, we can continue to find innovative ways of enhancing creativity in our products and services, while at the same time, maintain long-term profitability and sustainability.
