LVMH is a key player in the perfume, makeup and skin- care sector, with a portfolio of world-famous established names as well as younger brands with a promising future. The exceptional momentum of LVMH s Maisons is driven by growth in its flagship lines as well as bold new products. They are all driven by the same values: the pursuit of excellence, creativity, innovation and control of their brand image.
Consistent market share gains
With surging demand in Asia and the huge popularity of makeup among younger generations, the global perfume and cosmetics market is highly competitive and features shorter and shorter innovation cycles. In this context, all of LVMH s Maisons continue to pursue their objective of
gaining market share, which depends more than ever before on quality, product performance and a robust innovation policy. In the heart of France s Cosmetic Valley business cluster, researchers at LVMH s Hélios R&D facility play a crucial role in helping the Maisons meet these requirements.
Excellence and innovation in retailing
All brands are accelerating the implementation of their online sales platforms and stepping up their digital con- tent initiatives. Excellence in retailing is key, requiring expertise and attentiveness from beauty consultants, as well as innovation at points of sale. Our brands are actively incorporating digital tools to enhance the customer experience and attract new consumers.
