New in Switzerland: the Box of Beauty by Douglas
Beauty Boxes are all the rage and there is a real hype around the little boxes that one receives every month once subscribed. So it does not come as a surprise at all that Douglas, a perfumery that, for the time being, is primarily known in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, has launched their own concept, the Douglas Box of Beauty, available from August.
Cute and practical, the little, new box contains a selection of beauty and care products. And no, its colour is not the stereotypical pink but turquoise, the German perfume giants Corporate Colours.
That’s right, Douglas, that is the name of the founder, John Sharp Douglas, a Scottish soap maker, who emigrated to Germany and founded the first soap and perfumery factory in Hamburg in 1821. For generations, the Douglas family produced fine soaps and perfumes in the Hanseatic city and sold them in their own store, before establishing the actual “Perfumery Douglas’ brand in 1910.
Then, in the early seventies, Douglas expanded into the neighbouring countries, including Switzerland. In 2000, the first steps towards an online presence, in 2011, the mobile app, and now, a la 2.0, everything is going to be box.ed!
And so the clever little turquoise Box of Beauty is going to be available in Switzerland for only CHF 18.00, slightly less expensive as the competition.
