Colours & Fragrances spotlights YSL and Ralph Lauren in Kuala Lumpur

Colours & Fragrances has teamed up with L’Oreal Luxe Travel Retail Asia Pacific to open a new Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) beauty boutique and launch a promotion for Ralph Lauren Polo Red at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

Located in KLIA’s Satellite Building, the new YSL store opened in August and is said to be the first beauty boutique for the brand in Malaysia. It offers the complete range of YSL beauty products, including the latest fragrances, makeup colours and skin care products.

A highlight of the boutique is the makeup service bar, equipped with stools providing customers with a comfortable setting for a personal session with YSL beauty advisors.

“We believe that the newly opened YSL boutique will be a great success at KLIA. With the strong and continuous support from Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad and our brand principals, we look forward to achieving great results,” the retailer said.

Composed by perfumer Olivier Gillotin, Polo Red is a woody-spicy blend of red saffron, fresh red grapefruit and deep redwood. The edt is bottled in a red flacon in 45ml, 75ml and 125ml sizes, alongside a 150ml aftershave gel, 75g deodorant stick and 170g body spray.

The activation is said to have brought “an exciting edge” to KLIA and created a buzz among travellers. The retailer added: “All-in-all, it was a win-win situation: customer footfall and penetration at Colours & Fragrances was improved, bolstering Ralph Lauren sales and further enhancing KLIA’s image as the region’s shopping haven. We will continue to organise such exciting events and promotions to finish the year with strong sales growth.”
