David Crickmore, Amouage CEO along with Christopher Chong, Amouage Creative Director, will be attending the World Perfumery Congress held from June 5-9, 2007 in France, to share and gain insights on creating memorable perfume experiences, innovations, and the future of the fragrances world.

“As the only globally distributed luxury brand from Oman, Amouage is a roving Ambassador for the Sultanate and the World Perfumery Congress is the ideal platform to showcase the uniqueness of the brand and its birthplace which is rich in culture and heritage, thereby putting them on the world stage for all to admire,” expressed Crickmore. “As the brand embraces the challenge to mould itself into a 21st century luxury global brand, our efforts are continually directed to keeping abreast of international consumer mindsets and market trends. All will be unveiled in a spectacular Silver Jubilee celebration in November along with the introduction of a wonderful new fragrance and exciting brand extensions.”
Amouage has recently launched Reflection Woman and Reflection Man, two fragrances that celebrate the power of the individual and evoke quiet introspection, which have proven to be yet another notable success for the brand. “As a fragrance that represents a turning point for the Company, Reflection has been exceptionally received in the Middle East and internationally, a positive indication that we are on the right path to realizing the brand’s enormous potential,” added Crickmore.
Great efforts are underway by the team of international professionals who have been entrusted with the comprehensive transformation of the brand under Crickmore’s direction of which details are expected to be announced shortly.
