To successfully complete 40 years in not just the domestic segment, but in the global market, and that too in an era of intense competition and uncertainty is indubitably no joke!!
With an objective of marking its 40 years of global presence, L’Occitane en Provence, the World's leading luxury skin and body brand recently launched special edition hand creams to add glory and flamboyance to the occasion. A journey that began in 1976 has come a long way in the last 40 years of its remarkable existence.
For celebrating the brand’s anniversary, Dr. Aidan Goddard, Chief Financial Officer, Asia Pacific and John Ho, General Manager, South East Asia visited India along with Simi Dewan, Deputy General Manager, L’Occitane India to be a part of the momentous occasion. Due gratitude was expressed by the company spokespersons towards the stupendous response of the loyal clientele in the last 40 years.
The celebration was hosted at Spa La Vie, Mumbai where the guests were taken through the journey of L’Occitane and product portfolio offered by the brand. Additionally, there were a host of various engaging activities and pampering sessions for the guests to educate them about the products and for motivating them to use products made out of natural ingredients. In Delhi at L’Occitane Select City Saket outlet Dr. Aidan Goddard, John Ho and Simi Dewan, from L’Occitane have interacted with the media.
