with new technology, geographical locations, production capabilities and media channels. The company has launched several innovative sampling solutions in the past few months, including the Beautipod—a sample packet used for larger doses of product, such as shampoo or lotion. “The Beautipod’s unique design controls delivery of the product, almost like an applicator,” said Debra Leipman-Yale, president of Arcade. “We listened to our customers who wanted a larger-filled sample, and customized solutions to go a step beyond.” On the technology front, Arcade has created ClearAdvantage, a clear label that is affixed directly to a page or card allowing the customer to sample powders and shadows for convenient shade trial. Another product, ColorFixations, appears as a single trial sample, but when pulled from the back it becomes sticker that can be mixed and matched to create custom looks with face powder, blush and eyeshadow.

I n t h e f r a g r a n c e c a t e g o r y, Scentalker, a new self-service fragrance dispenser, was created to distribute scent strips to consumers in a store setting, without the aid of a retail sales assistant. Designed as a small box, it can be placed on any counter top and a consumer can take a single fragrance strip in relatively

the same fashion as taking a number in line. This inventive concept aims to simplify the fragrance testing process for retailers by avoiding the routine problems of broken or leaking testers. In the international sphere, Arcade announced the creation of Arcade LatAm, wh i ch w i l l b e headquartered in São Paulo, Brazil, and will serve as the sales, marketing and technical center for Central and Latin America. Arcade has had a presence through an independent sales relationship in Brazil since 1999, and as part of its global expansion plan, has moved to establish an incountry operation in Brazil. Arcade LatAm, through in-country sales, marketing and production resources, will develop, produce and deliver cosmetic, fragrance and beauty care sampling solutions to its global customers in the region, as well as regional and local companies. To lead this new subsidiary, Jérôme Massei, formerly CEO of Fragrance E x p e r t i s e International, joins Arcade as senior vice president and general manager of Arcade LatAm, along with Fabio Navarro as sales manager and Daniel Silveira as director of finance and administration. “This investment by Arcade in the future of the Latin American beauty market will not only bring sampling innovation to Latin America, but will also provide a mutually beneficial

opportunity for Arcade and its valued clients to enhance their businesses,” said Massei. Not only is the company expanding South, but also East, where they are in the developmental phases of launching Arcade China, Jérôme Massei and hope to do so by the end of the year. “There is a large opportunity for growth in these regions, and we saw a need for a strong local presence,” said Leipman-Yale. Recently, the company completed its acquisition of Color Optics, Inc., a specialized packaging provider, serving the cosmetic and consumer products industries with highly decorated packaging solutions. Color Optics will continue to operate its New Jersey production facility, with sales and marketing functions coordinating with Arcade’s headquarters in New York, to focus on the needs of the companies’ common customers. “We are very excited about the complementary design and production capabilities Color Optics will bring to Arcade Marketing,” said Leipman-Yale. “Having access to these new features will allow us to vertically integrate on a much broader basis.” Taking sampling to the next level, Arcade is expanding into the interactive arena with iSampling—an innovative delivery system of samples via the internet. “This new method allows a tactile experience for consumers to test products, and provides companies with great feedback through an email follow-up after the product is received,” said Leipman-Yale. “The digital sphere enhances our business model, and we’re excited to see what the future holds.” ■CW

HYDROXATONE’S TEAM ENTERS THE SCENE -Continued from Page 69

we knew we wanted to make a large investment on clinical trials to show the science behind each of our products.”

andrew Surwilo

Guess, the brand known for its glamorous sex appeal, is adding a new limited edition scent to its fragrance portfolio, Guess Seductive Wild Summer. Inspired by steamy secrets of hot summer nights, playful games, whispered promises, and the heart-pounding rush of that longawaited first kiss, this scent intimately reflects the brand’s sultry image.

Thomas Shipley

Once the company hit triple-digit, year-over-year growth, Surwilo and Shipley moved the company to Hoboken, New Jersey and began building their professional team. In keeping with the original vision, the Atlantic Coast Media Group team has continued to generate new products, adding new products to the popularized Hydroxatone skin care line, as well as creating innovative product lines such as Keranique, a hair care system designed specifically to address the needs of women with thinning hair. As the team and revenues continued to multiply—hitting $168 million in annual revenue in 2010—ACMG made the move to its current offices in Jersey City, New Jersey.

“Right now we’re launching about two products a month and our multichannel business model is proving its effectiveness,” said Shipley. “Hydroxatone is now in over 360 Ulta doors nationwide, and will be introduced in Macy’s stores by the end of the year.”

86

GUESS SEDUCTIVE WILD SUMMER REVEALS STEAMY SECRETS the new scent captures the same passionate essence as the original, but with a seasonal, playful twist. The heart of the fragrance unveils a floral bouquet of iconic rose and tender orange flower draped in jasmine vapor, and then leads to an intense dry down of sensual vanilla, cashmere wood and musk. The bottle maintains its bold signature shape, accessorized by a dangling gold charm and Guess logo, and the packaging features a unique design element of lace to add a romantic, more whimsical touch.

“We are excited to release our second fragrance from our collaboration with the Coty family,” said paul Marciano, CEO and creative director of Guess?, inc. “The success of our first endeavor, Guess Seductive, went beyond my expectations and I am excited to see how this area of the Guess lifestyle brand will continue to grow with the introduction of Guess Seductive Wild Summer.” Flirty and lighthearted, the fragrance’s vivacious notes signal a true summer scent: lushy floral with a musky base. When creating the juice, iFF perfumer Veronique Nyberg dreamed of a mischievous twist on her sultry black currant, jasmine and vanilla-based aroma of Guess Seductive. With flirty top notes of fruity lychee and crispy pear sprinkled with vibrant red berries,

The advertising campaign, shot by p h o t o g ra p h e r Vi n c e n t pe t e r s, features Guess newcomer alyssa Miller, who was handpicked by Paul Marciano to be the face of both Guess Seductive fragrances. The eau de toilette will be priced at $52.00 for 1.7 oz. and will be available worldwide this month. ■CW

ACMG has already made tremendous strides in 2011, launching luminique, a new skin care line utilizing new ingredients to focus on reducing the appearance of photoaging, as well as the success of the Hydroxatone brand on HSN. “We debuted on HSN in February,

selling out of five of the seven products available,” said Shipley. “We aired again last week, and are scheduled for other presentations on May 28 and 29. Customers trust the HSN brand as a leader in beauty and they trust the products they present, so for us this is an ideal partnership.” ■CW

ORIGINS ADDS TO PERFECT NEWPRODUCTS DR. DENNIS GROSS WORLD COLLECTION Alpha Beta Glow Pad For centuries, the extremely rare Silver Tip White Tea was prized by emperors as the key ingredient in China’s famed elixir of immortality. Now, in the face of a global climate crisis characterized by ever-increasing levels of pollution, our skin’s health is paying a high price, and Origins is striving to prove that the legend of the tea has more than a leaf of truth behind it. Since the launch of the A Perfect World Collection in 1998, significant new research has been conducted regarding the global climate crisis. According to The Royal Society, the national academy of science of the UK and the Commonwealth, “Ozone levels have been growing by 6% a decade since the 1980s and are now at a level that impacts our health and the environment…the figure will increase by at least 50% by 2020 as a result of growing emissions and climate change.” Scientists at University Hospitals of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University determined that antioxidants in White Tea are effective in boosting the skin’s defense against the damaging effects caused by pollution and other environmental aggressors. In fact, of all teas, Silver Tip White Tea contains one of the highest amounts of Epigallocatechin G a l l a t e ( E G C G ) , t h e p ow e r f u l antioxidant that protects skin from age-accelerating free radicals. With this potent, free radical fighting ingredient as the cornerstone of the A Perfect World Collection, Origins is able to offer first line protection against the visible signs of aging. The addition of two new products launching this month—Age-defense

88

treatment lotion with White Tea and SPF 35 UV Face protector with White Tea—positively complements the existing assortment of cleansers, moisturizers, lotions and creams formulated with this key ingredient. The Age-defense treatment lotion ($21) combines the protection of Silver Tip White Tea with another highly potent antioxidant, Thermus Thermophilus Ferment, to boost skin’s anti-aging defenses by working to allow skin to stay hydrated and soft. The essential oil blend of lemon, sweet orange, bergamot and spearmint aims to help uplift the spirit.

Category: Skin care Launch: April 2011 Claims: The only anti-aging, exfoliating sunless tanner that contains active Vitamin D (the sun vitamin) to provide smoother, healthier skin and natural radiance year-round. Key Ingredients: Encapsulated DHA, glycolic acid, willow bark extract, soy protein and vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Stats: $32.00

PHILOSOPHY Summer Grace

The SPF 35 UV Face protector ($27.50) helps safeguard skin against environmental stressors including ground level ozone, UVA and UVB rays. Silver Tip White Tea is blended with Vitamins C and E to help defend against free radicals, while martime pine works on a cellular level to strengthen skin’s natural defense system and help prevent oxidation. A team of Origins scientists used an ozone chamber to recreate an environment with levels of ozone comparable to the three most polluted cities in the world—Los Angeles, Mexico City and Beijing. After only three hours of exposure, scientists measured the neutralizing effect of the potent antioxidant blend in each of these new products, and found that it helped reduce the damaging ■CW effects of ozone by 76%.

Category: Fragrance Launch: April 2011 Claims: Created to refresh the spirit and warm the heart, this vibrant floral fragrance embodies a fresh breeze, a golden ray of sunshine and a sun-kissed moment from an endless summer, while making you feel brightly cheerful all day long. Key Notes: Star fruit, peach, passion flower, wild peony, sandalwood, coconut and vanilla. Stats: 2.0 oz., $40.00; 4.0 oz., $60.00

LIERAC Sensorielle Category: Skin/Hair Care Launch: April 2011 Claims: This luxury multi-use oil provides 24-hydration and softness to skin and hair, and contains an unprecedented combination of three unique white flowers and four rare oils.

cosmeticworldcalendar openly instead of focusing solely on the launch calendar.” Ms. Slater discussed Sephora’s fragrance initiatives, which include the “Sephora Favorites” deluxe sample kits—a mix of classics and new scents to give the consumer a plethora of options. “Sampling is key, and we have created an in-store endcap with over 50 rollerball fragrances in grab n’ go style,” said Slater. “Our ‘clients’ like to explore and discover on their own.” According to The Fragrance Foundation’s Certified Fragrance Sales Specialists program, service matters now more than ever, and customers are buying what’s new, but also appreciate the freedom to return to their old stand-bys when they want to. “The number one reason our customer buys fragrance is to replenish,” said Black. “The number two reason is because she liked a sample and came back to purchase it. She wants to shop the way she wants to shop, and if she can’t do that, she won’t shop at all.” The idea of story-telling was also an important panel topic, as Ms. Vaile mentioned that sales through the Internet will be powered by the story-telling of fragrance, and it is often a challenge for marketers to articulate their story. “A consumer can buy a product on TV or the Internet because of a story, but they will come back to it because of the juice,” said Jacques. “Perfumers are not usually the storytellers—the brand or endorser is. “Perfumers are responsible for illustrating the story.” Ms. Vaile closed the discussion on the topic of celebrity fragrances, saying that they provide instant brand awareness, and are a way to get the attention of consumers in a sea of brands that is overwhelming. “Celebrity fragrances are important to consumers, and will continue to drive business,” said Vaile. ■CW APRIL 15, 2011

24 FAUBOURG

Beauté Prestige International Fragrance Supplier: Firmenich Bottle Manufacturer: SGD Advertising Agency: N/A “Created in 1995 by legendary Perfumer Maurice Roucel, 24 Faubourg is the quintessence of the House of Hermès realized in fragrance. Bearing the name of the Hermès flagship boutique in Paris, the scent is radiant and generous; with opulent offerings of orange blossom, jasmine Tahitian tiare, vanilla and sandalwood, all of which combine to make this iconic scent a favorite of women around the world.” – Patrice Beliard, President, Beauté Prestige International USA

ISSEY MIYAKE L’EAU D’ISSEY

Beauté Prestige International Fragrance Supplier: Firmenich Bottle Manufacturer: Bormioli Luigi, Pochet, SGD Advertising Agency: Daniel Jouanneau “When first asked what he felt his fragrance should embody, Issey Miyake replied ‘I want a fragrance that smells like water.’ When L’Eau d’Issey debuted in 1992, it was clear that perfumer Jacques Cavalier had risen admirably to Mr. Miyake’s invigorating challenge. The result is as genius as the creator—aquatic and pure, the subtle arrangement of lotus, rose, and white lilies creates a simple beauty achieved through the greatest complexity. Today, L’Eau d’Issey is a reference among perfumers and a classic among its countless devotees.” – Patrice Beliard, President, Beauté Prestige International USA

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER CLASSIQUE

The instantly recognizable bottle, inspired by Jean Paul’s iconic feminine form, contains a scent which is nothing short of voluptuous—one which he himself describes as ‘my own love affair with the rose’. We’ve always felt that Classique is a classic not just because her name tells us so, but because she is precisely what the designer intended, a fragrance as beautiful, as multi-faceted and as universal as femininity itself.” – Patrice Beliard, President, Beauté Prestige International USA

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER LE MALE

Beauté Prestige International Fragrance Supplier: Givaudan Bottle Manufacturer: Bormioli Luigi, Pochet Advertising Agency: Jean Baptiste Mondino “Jean Paul Gaultier’s beloved ‘man in uniform’ has, for more than 15 years, surprised and enticed fragrance wearers with his ultra-buff torso-shaped bottle and his unique take on the definition of masculinity. Always a rule breaker, Le Male unpredictably mixes lavender, mint and vanilla to give the contemporary man a fragrance alternative—one that is unmistakably virile, yet playfully sensitive. Le Male’s distinctive appeal lies in his ability to turn the unusual into the familiar, and in so doing, he boldly invites himself into the company of classics.” – Patrice Beliard, President, Beauté Prestige International USA
