Aptar Beauty + Home Partners with Le Grand Musée Du Parfum

A new cultural institution called Le Grand Musée Du Parfum recently opened its doors in Paris, and Aptar Beauty + Home is proud to be a partner.

The museum, in its entrancing setting, is unveiling the unique world of perfume to the general public through an innovative, interactive experience enhanced by electronic olfaction technologies, videos, and more.

With the museum’s opening, the partners had a vision to relay the essence of perfumery as a polysensory experience. Perfuming is a precious, intimate, timeless experience, and “one fragrance, one gesture” is a principle that inspires Aptar Beauty + Home.

Aptar Beauty + Home worked with the museum on an artistic project for a room that is dedicated to the art of perfuming, which includes a video and photo display called “Rituals”, produced by a talented trio of artists and also contributed its new spray system, La Petite, which is present on the 60 perfume bottles found on the grand staircase of the museum. Eternelle Couture atomizers were chosen to activate electronically the olfactory systems placed on the first floor as well as videos situated in the art of perfuming room on the second floor.

Perfuming gesture diversity is apparent throughout Aptar Beauty + Home’s product line, inspiring a select range of sprays as well as alternative gestures such as the atomizer and the glass stopper applicator called Note, one of Aptar Beauty + Home’s latest innovations. Aptar Beauty + Home is re-enchanting the sensory experience one gesture at time.

“We take pride in participating in this contemporary approach with olfactory senses front and center stage. This is also an international stage with two-thirds of international visitors expected,” said Sabine Bouillet-Lubot, Strategic Marketing Manager Fragrance, Aptar Beauty + Home.

New Oval Airless Bottle for Lancôme’s Visionnaire Eye On Corre...

Within its Visionnaire skincare line, Lancôme is launching Visionnaire Yeux Eye On Correction, a triple-action refreshing balm that works to correct wrinkles and erase dark shadows and under-eye circles. For this new premium product, Mega Airless, part of Aptar, has developed an oval container from its Micro range with beautiful decor.

For this revolutionary new product, L’Oréal requested a package with a standout design, as well as 100% formula protection. Mega Airless answered this demand with an oval-shaped bottle from its Micro airless line, available in 15 and 30 ml formats. Unlike traditional cylindrical bottles, this option allows Mega Airless to provide distinct added value to the brand as the bottle is much more visible and offers a greater surface area for printing.

Premium Decor

When it comes to its decor, the package is exceptionally elegant. Manufactured entirely from polypropylene (PP), the pack is protected with a transparent lacquer as base for the silk-screen-printing of the product information. The logo is applied by using silver hot stamping on the top of the transparent cap. The central adapter ring is also hot-stamped to give an aluminum effect.

With this product, Mega Airless demonstrated their know-how in decoration and printing techniques. To meet customer demand, the company has in-house capacity to provide silkscreen printing with 3- and 4-color printing machines, hot stamping and labeling. Partnerships with trusted external suppliers provide further decoration techniques such as metallization and lacquering.

Aptar Beauty + Home is honored to receive two Prix Formes de Luxe awards for the new fragrance gesture “Note” used for J’Adore Touche de Parfum by Dior. The awards were for the dispensing system and the Grand Prize for Innovation (Grand Prix de l’Innovation).

This innovation helps create a unique fragrance experience, intimate and sensual, ideal for more concentrated perfumes.

We needed a new application method, something different from that of a traditional fragrance. In other words, a highly feminine and precise touch. On top of that, we were looking to make a bottle for women on the go, for them to carry in their purse and reapply at any time throughout the day,” explained the team behind J’Adore by Parfums Christian Dior.

L’Oréal and Aptar Collaborate on New Hair Mousse Styling Foam

The intuitive dispenser design offers consumers choice of use as the package can be picked up for hand-to-hand application, or conveniently set on the counter to dispense.

As a result of the collaboration between L’Oréal and Aptar Beauty + Home, the hair mousse format has been redefined into an exclusive design with excellent dispensing functionality.

Cosmetiquemag awarded Dior for its exceptional fragrance and design featuring a sensory innovation from Aptar, called Note.

Lionel de Benetti's New Brand Features Aptar Beauty + Home

Lionel de Benetti has created his first facial skincare product by teaming with Aptar Beauty + Home

Lionel de Benetti sought to develop a product to suit all skin types, suitable for all ages and levels of skin sensitivity. The product required a high concentration of the main active ingredients, which in turn need to be protected while the product is being used as they are susceptible to oxidization. For this reason, Lionel de Benetti selected Aptar Beauty + Home’s airless system to safeguard these ingredients.

“This facial skincare product requires an airless container to ensure that the product does not come into contact with an atmosphere where oxidization is possible. The tests carried out by Aptar Beauty + Home show that its dispensing system protects the product from contamination,” he explains.

Lionel de Benetti opted for simplicity for his first facial skincare product, choosing the see through, 40 ml version of the Aptar’s Irresistible packaging range. Due to its unique airless technology, Irresistible offers cosmetic brands a complete dispensing system that has been developed for the most sensitive formulas. Its multi-layer, pocket-sized bottle and dispensing system provide high performance and protection against exterior contamination, contributing to excellent hygiene.

Aptar Beauty + Home is a solution partner providing packaging dispensing systems for the beauty, personal care and home care markets.

Aptar Beauty + Home Delivers Optimal Tool for Surface Cleaning

In 2015, the global market for the ‘surface cleaning’ category was estimated at $20.2bn according to Euromonitor International, with the sub-category of ‘multi-purpose cleaners’ contributing to one-third of the market estimate. Aptar studied consumer behavior to understand this market and to deliver a solution based upon consumers’ need for convenience and control in their cleaning regime.

Multi-purpose cleaners offer consumers a faster and easier cleaning routine without sacrificing cleanliness.  Although these cleaners can decrease the overall amount of products consumers use to clean their homes, they still have to use multiple package platforms because there is no single product that can reach all cleaning areas – until now.

Runway Trigger + Bag On Valve (BOV) = Optimal Cleaning Tool

The aerosol platform provides continuous delivery of product and coupled with our bag on valve (BOV) technology, we can offer pure product delivery at any angle.  But top it with Runway, the newest pressurized packaging trigger from Aptar, and you have the optimal cleaning tool.  With its patented dual actuation, it gives the consumers a dispensing choice in their cleaning regime.  Actuate with the finger on top to deliver product for short applications, or as a trigger for longer applications.

Imagine needing only one product and package to clean an entire bathroom.  Actuate as a traditional button for short bursts for cleaning your mirror. Next, switch to the trigger and spray the entire sink and surrounding counter area.  Lastly, use Runway with Aptar’s BOV technology for toilet cleaning, easily reaching under the rim and sides due to the 360 degree actuation. The entire bathroom can be cleaned without ever having to stop and change cleaners or packages.  Truly one product does it all.

A  fast and easy experience that puts the consumer in control of their cleaning.
