Exclusive | Luxe.CO Intelligence “China Premium Fragrance Brands Power Ranking” TOP 20 List Revealed

Nov 20, 2023

The fashion industry research institution, Luxe.CO Intelligence has released its inaugural “China Premium Fragrance Brands Power Ranking“.

Over the past year, the premium fragrance market in China has become increasingly vibrant, with both domestic and international brands taking a more active and distinctive approach:

More international niche brands have entered the China market, and more local emerging brands have made a dazzling debut.

Various levels of “first stores” have opened: Chinese first stores, regional first stores, city first stores… some have even become “commercial landmarks” and popular check-in spots in their respective cities.

Marketing scenes have become more diverse: hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars… fragrance brands have stepped out of commercial spaces and their own stores, making glamorous appearances in various imaginative settings.

There are various marketing strategies: unexpected collaborations, themed offline events, grand offline exhibitions, etc.

This report is based on comprehensive and real-time brand public dynamic data from Tong.Luxe.CO, combined with the long-term research results of Luxe.CO Intelligence. It calculates weighted scores based on dynamic activity. The basic data covers 405 dynamics from 55 brands from October 1, 2022, to September 30, 2023, involving store expansion, collaboration events, exhibitions, artist collaborations, and more.
