Now in its fourth year, Terry White Chemists’ Business Manager - Cosmetics, Fragrance and Accessories, Dale Bell, tells esprit Magazine, the 2016 Festival promises to be its “biggest and best yet. The August Fragrance and Beauty Festival is the first major campaign for the category in the second half of the year and has evolved to become one of our biggest.
“Held right across our network of 165 pharmacies across Australia, it is an exciting opportunity to offer some incredible savings, to promote some of our favourite products and to introduce customers to those they may not have tried before.”
National beauty brands participating in the Festival include Napoleon (which will offer a Terry White Chemists’ exclusive gift with purchase), Revlon, L’Oréal, Maybelline, Nude by Nature, Designer Brands and Thin Lizzy.
Fragrance brands on offer at incredible prices are Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Lancôme and Beckham. Exciting new releases from Vera Wang, J-Lo, Jennifer Anniston will be part of the Festival as well.
Dale says the Festival will be well supported by significant catalogue space and marketing across a range of platforms. “But it is our beauty consultants – in-pharmacy – that really come into their own with regards to making the August Fragrance and Beauty Festival such a success. Their enthusiasm and knowledge, combined with a range of savings and offers, creates the ideal climate to ensure the Festival’s success.”
Lancôme partners with 9 leading brands; Lara Srokowski, Director of Artistry for Lancôme Australia creates modern beauty looks for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Innovation might be the most loved buzzword in the beauty industry. But marketing keeps repeating itself. The end of World War II ushered in the modern consumer age and every new generation since has been targeted as the next big thing. That’s a logical move, of course, but each and every time an over-emphasis on youth has been shown to have limitations. It’s ironic that the word Youthquake was nominated as the word of the year for 2017 because it first surfaced in the 1960s to refer to the consumer impact of then-young Baby Boomers.
