BUILDING A LUXURY SKIN CARE BRAND

New packaging was needed to differentiate one scent from another while inspiring customers to collect the products as a series.
A clear system – Clean typography, smart use of stock components and a proprietary process to help protect the bottles helped create intrigue.
Scent Stories – A whimsical, benefit-driven naming system gives the products a unique identity, paired with a unique color to aid the consumer in selecting the right product.
Luxury Positioning – Premium materials for the packaging materials were selected to signal consumers about the high quality of product itself.
