LANCÔME Travel Retail Asia Pacific Kicks Off ‘Declaring Happiness’ Global Campaign

Leading French luxury beauty brand LANCÔME

Travel Retail Asia Pacific is delighted to announce the launch of a global campaign,
‘Declaring Happiness’, which will be celebrated through a series of brand events across
Asia. In line with the global direction to strengthen LANCÔME’s digital presence in the
region, each of these events will leverage on the digital influence of celebrities and key
beauty opinion leaders to engage a broader audience, and at the same time converge the
offline and online retail experiences to foster a stronger brand engagement with
consumers.

Beginning in Korea, the global initiative was kickstarted with a store event
and cocktail party graced by renowned Korean actress, Kim Go-Eun, at Lotte Hotel, the
first 2020 concept store for LANCÔME Travel Retail Asia Pacific to offer a unique retail
experience with its consumer centric and high retail quality that allows travellers to freely
discover various travel exclusive products in the shop. After which, the campaign landed
on the shores of Singapore, with a resplendent LANCÔME Holiday Wonders pop-up
store that lit up Singapore Changi Airport in festive spirit for the holiday season. Moving
forward, the campaign will make a stop in China, with a launch event in November at
Haitang Bay that is set to continue the brand’s journey in sharing happiness with all
women, before concluding with a Hong Kong event in December.

“The LANCÔME ‘Declaring Happiness’ global campaign richly illustrates our passion to
inspire and share happiness with women by making their lives more beautiful. Ultrafeminity,

DNA. Through this series of ‘Declaring Happiness’ events across Asia, we hope to
continue creating moments of happiness for all women by exploring different consumercentric
innovations at our events that allows us to foster a deeper connection and
engagement with our consumers.” says Ms. Tao Zhang, General Manager of

‘Declaring Happiness’ Kick-off Event in Seoul

The ‘Declaring Happiness’ campaign started off in Seoul on 12 October 2017 with
LANCÔME Travel Retail Asia Pacific’s first-ever live streaming event, attended by
guests from all across Asia – most notably, renowned Korean actress Kim Go-Eun and
social media influencers from China. The 11 Chinese social media influencers livestreamed
at both the event venue and concept store through Weibo, creating organic,
user-generated content by sharing their experience with millions of their followers and
interacting with them during the live feed.

At the beauty talk session, Kim Go-Eun revealed her beauty secret for porcelain skin and
attributed it to some of her favourite LANCÔME products – the UV Expert Aqua Gel
and Blanc Expert Cushion.

Other highlights of the event also include activities for new product launches such as the
‘Génifique’ zone, which employed touch-screen gaming technology to create a unique
platform on which guests could experience the Génifique Sensitive. Guests were also
given the opportunity to be the first to experience the fruity floral scent of LANCÔME’s
new fragrance, the Miracle Secret, as well as the newly launched L’absolu Gloss.
