  3. 3. Surging Market Demand in Global Fragrance Industry According to research reports, perfumes and fragrances have now evolved into a mainstream business within cosmetics and personal industries. With a consolidated CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of approximately 3.7% in 2013, the multi-billion dollar industry is buoyant despite several economic downturn led by Europe. The largest market for fragrances is Brazil, with a sales of around $7billion in 2011. Emerging markets such as Africa, China and India are also contributing to the rapid increase in revenue. The potential for continued expansion of the Fragrance market is endless, as it looks to take over cosmetics as the leading consumer product in the personal care industry before 2020. Middle East, the Land of Premium Fragrances The Middle East region alone accounts for 20 per cent of worldwide perfumes market, valued at 11AED billion. Figures cited from Euromonitor saw fragrance sales in United Arab Emirates (UAE) reaching AED890 million in 2012, a steady growth rate of 7%. The dominance of growth was led by a surge of demand for premium fragrances, which accounted for 70% of total fragrances in the region. As the affluence of Middle East countries continue to mature beyond expectations, future premium fragrance are set to be dominated by the region by a forecasted 2018. It is then crucial for fragrance brands to devise their positioning strategy in order to capitalize on the future prospects of a larger market. Cater to the Affluent. Find their “Right choice” The average citizen in UAE spends no less than 1,225AED yearly, solely on his or her personal fragrance (Reported in 2006). As disposable income of population in Middle East ranks the highest in the world, the opportunity is excellent for existing and new brands of perfume to develop premium options for this lucrative market-of-the-future. Premiumisation, as termed by Euromonitor, is the new direction for any fragrance brands in the Middle East region. What then, does an affluent individual seek in his or her fragrance? Our research has concluded that the most demanded premium fragrances have integrated the following elements to satisfy the desire for individuality of the affluent: a. It should endow an emotional experience for consumers b. It needs to be authentic and obtain credentials of luxury c. It requires exclusivity and limited access to obtain d. It contains rare raw materials that are rich in quality and texture, and preferably even having a heritage As a starting point, quality raw materials trigger the experience of luxury and authenticity demanded by premium consumers, justifying the high price of luxury fragrances. Brands are more willing to trade inexpensive alcohol or IRR solvents for rare, high-valued Oudh to develop fragrances. While traditional labels of Oudh fragrance are still dominating on market share, contemporary luxury brands like Christian Dior and Tom Ford have begun to increase their market dominance with the introduction of fragrances based on Oudh. The strong financial capacity and market adaptation could see these European or Western labels continually increasing market capitalization in Middle East and beyond. Proper strategy is required for existing brand labels to strengthen their expertise in Oudh, particularly through innovating and continually surpassing the limits of luxury. With Soulife Singapore, this is now a realizable goal. Copyright © 2013 Soulife Singapore Pte Ltd. All rights reserved.
  4. 4. Sustainability of resources “More and more companies are reaching out to their suppliers to work jointly on issues of sustainability, environmental responsibility, ethics and compliance” Simon Mainwaring Sustainability is a big word for corporate leaders, who have an accustomed to a “low cost margin” profit strategy for centuries. However, for businesses to survive in the long-term, it is vital that the issue of resource sustainability stands equally as other agendas of marketing and branding. While “Branding” has become a major corporate success strategy by providing experiential influence in the consumer’s decisions, the force also acts conversely on businesses. Consumers expect the brands they love to also participate in social issues, including the address of environmental concerns. This begins by first establishing a self-renewable system independent of environmental exploitation, before moving on to other issues. The single largest concern for Oudh fragrance brands today is sustainability of supply. For brands whom have decided 20 years ago on establishing their own plantation or work closely with highly-sustainable suppliers, it is now the single most impact on their consumer confidence and product satisfaction. Are all suppliers of Oudh raw materials sustainable? Hardly. The process of obtaining Oudh is a delicate and time-consuming one, resulting often in low volume of production and lack of quality control. For the ones who have found their footing on supply, eventually introduce their labels to compete with major fragrance brands, on the advantage of their personal sustainability for future market capitalization. Fragrance De Bois is a typical example of such a business model. With the pressure piled up on traditional fragrance brands, the onus is up to their leaders to reconsider the importance of sustainability. Soulife Singapore holds worldwide patents in Agarwood Technology (US: 7485309, 7803384) and can produce Oudh in a period below 2 years. We have sizable production facilities in North and South Thailand, a key factor for our business partners whom take large orders when rates are lower*. Soulife Singapore is the only authorized corporate owner of wildlife Agarwood trees across Thailand, apart from our own plantations. Our corporate advisor, Dr. Wijitphan’s greatest life achievement, was our Agarwood trees being endorsed by the Thailand Royal Family in 1995, 2003 and 2005. We have been leading the industry of Oudh production in Thailand to partner with businesses in the region, empowering them with sustainable, convenient supply. Additionally, we are the only company who has limited legal access rights to majestic Agarwood trees that are aged between 70 - 350 years, a significant market advantage for luxury fragrance partners whom generally gain access to expensive but relatively young Oudh oil qualities.

  5. 5. WHO WE ARE Soulife Singapore was founded in 2013 by Mr. Thomas Won Choon Fei (Managing Director). Our company adopts a self-produce, selfmarketing business model. While the Agarwood trade has been consistently outperforming itself in the global market, the quality of products today have become largely inconsistent. Some companies have even gone to the extent of creating counterfeit products. We believe in taking tangible steps to ensure top quality of products from our supply, through to our end users. This includes proper certification of ownership, and scientific proof of its purity aligned with international standards. In this way, consumers can be assured that they are paying a fair price for what it is worth. While the current trade market is only able to offer Agarwood products manufactured from young cultivated trees, Soulife Singapore is the only authorized company in the world that offers a higher end choice for end users who value luxury and exclusivity – The refined, pure heartwood and Oudh oils extracted from wildlife Agarwood trees aged at least 100 years old.

  6. 6. Legend: Extinct Remaining WHERE CAN YOU UNCOVER KINAM TODAY? Many people believe that the legendary Kinam (Kyara) originated from Vietnam. The mythical term “Kinam” (Kyara) was used only to describe Aquilaria of the highest quality known to consumers. The truth, is that authentic, wildlife Aquilaria species were spread across Southeast Asia. Its large plots of dense, natural forests hosted more than 15 Aquilaria species. Amongst these species, Aquilaria Malaccensis and Aquilaria Crassna is scientifically proven to be of highest quality and most well received by fragrance lovers. When international demand increased, traders emerged in droves into the forests and began extracting and exhausting the last of wildlife species in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Fortunately, Thailand has a strong control over its land use, and have successfully preserved its wildlife heritage till today. Thailand is a critical source of naturally aging wildlife Agarwood trees today. The resource we have are now mature, and capable of high renewability. Soulife Singapore’s has been the main supplier for our Southeast Asian large Agarwood firms for some time, and is now ready to expand our operations in other mature consumer demands such as China, Japan and Middle East regions, offering finesse for fragrance brands with our vintage collection of 100 year old pure Oudh oils.
