It was time for us to widen our footprint in the personal lifestyle categories that are currently unorganized, underserved and under penetrated. Using our in-house design and marketing expertise, wide retail footprint and the brand name Titan, we took a step to enter the fragrances market which is growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 30% and has tremendous opportunities.”
He further added, “The current fragrances market in India is bustling with international brands and are very expensive. There is no Indian player and there is an opportunity to bring in quality and an Indian brand name in the space. Over 3 years of work has gone into the making of SKINN and it is an important part of Titan Company’s journey and we look forward to this exciting phase. SKINN will soon redefine the Indian fragrance industry like the way we transformed our watches, jewelry and eyewear businesses. We look forward to expanding this category and its offerings in the time to come.”
Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas, creator of the SKINN Nude fragrance variant, shared his delight, “I’m happy and very excited to be a part of the SKINN journey. It was a pleasure working with Titan, a renowned and respected Indian company that is well known globally. While these fragrances are developed by French perfumers and are made in France, they are modern and international. A lot of market and consumer research has gone behind creating these perfumes.”
He further added, “The fragrance tells a story about love. For SKINN Nude that I created, I used the memory of the flower market in India and as a key inspiration. I also wanted the fragrance to speak about romance and about sensuality, which has been carried through.”
Master Perfumer Olivier Pescheux, co-creator of SKINN Raw said, “SKINN has been one of the most fascinating projects I have ever worked on. Working hand in hand with Titan, this project gave me the opportunity to travel twice to India, to rediscover a beautiful country, meet great people and find many new sources of inspiration. My inspiration for SKINN Raw has been to bring a unique sense of elegant and bold masculinity to enhance one’s confidence. I imagined a fragrance that empowers you and gives a cool, reliable image of one’s self and that delivers a luxurious, truly long-lasting freshness”
