Good Times for Fragrance Du Bois
Asia Plantation Capital Scaling New Heights at the Annual General Meeting.
Scaling new heights, Asia Plantation Capital declared revenue of US$64.7 million for the 2014 financial year, while surpassing the figure of US$8.1 million in repayments to clients since inception, and forecasted to pass US$10 million by the end of 2015. Updates were also given on the exponential growth and acquisition of plantations in the region, with emphasis on the opening of Southeast Asia’s largest agarwood processing factory in Malaysia. The factory – occupying 44,000 ft and boasting an impressive collection of 20 distillery stills – is integral to Asia Plantation Capital’s expansion plans to increase market share in the years ahead.
Brand Director of Fragrance Du Bois, Nicola Parker, brought the audiences up to date on the brand’s growth and expansion over the past year – with significant emphasis placed on the partnership with Asia Plantation Capital, and its ongoing commitment to using 100% pure Oud oil, supplied by the plantation company. The brand has also opened its doors in Southeast Asia to stock and promote some of the world’s most exclusive fragrances.
Having recently celebrated the first anniversary of its flagship boutiques in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, along with the launch of its newly crafted scent, London Oud, the biggest news came with the announcement that the niche, luxury brand will be opening its next concept boutique in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This will accompany a number of ‘concessions’ and ‘pop ups’ in department stores in major cities around the world.
Fragrance Du Bois is a niche luxury perfume house born from the richest essences of nature, crafted by fifth generation perfumers from the 17th century French traditions of Grasse. All Du Bois fragrances are created using 100% pure, organic Oud oil and other sustainably-sourced ingredients from plantations managed by award-winning company, Asia Plantation Capital.
