Puig recently implemented its first global Chinese New Year activation for Prada fragrances. The activity underlined Puig’s commitment to applying its fragrance category development strategy with Asian consumers in travel retail.

The animation focused on the Prada Candy range and coincided with the launch of the new limited-edition Prada Candy Floral collector. The space featured a special Chinese New Year key visual and product sleeves, in red and gold, to commemorate the Year of the Dog. Puig also developed an exclusive Chinese New Year gift-with-purchase Prada pouch and sampling ritual for all Prada fragrances playing with lucky Hong Bao (red packets).

Puig said the promotion exemplifies how the company creates tailored and more relevant offers for travellers from different nationalities
