How China’s New Love Affair With Perfume Is Changing the Market | China Decoded, BoF Professional

China dominates almost every aspect of the consumer market: it is the world’s biggest apparel market; the biggest luxury market; the biggest source of growth for fashion and beauty brands the world over.

But fragrance has remained an anomaly. As of 2017, only one percent of worldwide perfume sales happened in China, and less than one percent of Chinese consumers used perfume daily, according to market research firm Mintel. But that’s changing fast, thanks to a new generation of consumers, who are adopting perfume as a way to express their personal style.

Now it’s obvious that the ones who aren’t using fragrance, just aren’t using it yet.

“The youngsters are all so much about wanting to tell who they are and why they are unique. Fragrance is the ideal way to convey who you want to be in a really subtle way,” said Dao Nguyen, founder of Essenzia, a boutique

How seven years living in Germany helped me learn to love joyful British style

There’s also much better vintage available here than in Berlin. I found a hippie coat at a great vintage store in Bath that would have been five times the price in Berlin. And the charity shops! God, I’ve missed them. I love searching for vintage Jaeger blazers and Eighties banker-style pinstripe shirts from Savile Row to wear oversized, with shorts in the summer. 

Although, will there be a summer? After basking in the reliably hot Berlin summers for the last few years, I am concerned if I’ll know how to dress. I think Brits start wearing summer trends based on a date in the calendar, rather than how hot it is outside, because if we didn’t we’d wear the same thing all year round. ‘Summer dressing’ is a mindset, not a weather-based necessity here. 

With fresh eyes, I can see how fabulously camp a lot of British fashion is. The
