The opening also marks the first time the Switzerland headquartered firm has set up a global perfumery campus outside France, aimed at training and developing perfumers in Asia.

The Fragrance Creative Centre offers expertise ranging from consumer insights to fragrance evaluation facilities, and will serve as the region's central location for the firm's growing fine fragrance business in Asia. It is already fully operational and employs more than 170 staff from various countries. In addition, the new production facility in Tuas, which uses highly-automated systems and cutting-edge technology, will help to achieve shorter lead times in production and delivery, helping customers to go to market faster.
