Halal-certified fragrances sales at Middle East and other regions of the world are set to increase as Muslim populations demand Halal products
From the very beginning of its foundation, Eurofragance decided to become an international company. The first area of the planet where it started exporting its fragrances was Middle East and later joined by some other regions and countries in Asia (Singapore, the Philippines, etc). That meant we had to know a bit more about their culture, their tastes and the scents people like.
What is Halal?
Halal is an Arabic word meaning permissible. It refers to everything that adheres to Islamic law, which is defined in the Koran. The opposite to Halal is Haram and refers to what is forbidden. These two words are present in different facets of Muslims lives like food, clothes, laundry products, personal care products or cosmetics, to name few. That is why Halal products must be certified by Halal certification organizations that operate under the Islamic law, under rules and principles that Muslims follow.
Which are the conditions for a product to be Halal-certified?
When talking about fragrances for different products, for them to be Halal certified, they must accomplish six requisites: they can´t contain alcohol; can´t be tested on animals; should not contain animal ingredients; food goods that are prohibited according to the Islamic law should be avoided during the blend of halal cosmetics, and, finally, all Halal products must have a Halal Certification -issued by a certifying body- to guarantee consumers that product doesn’t contain any Haram component.
Why did we decide to produce Halal-certified fragrances?
We operate in different areas with different traditions and beliefs. Our customers produce goods for different countries within the five continents. Many of our customers sell products for Muslim populations so it is critical for us to embrace their culture and understand their needs.
In this regard, Asia, which is a strategic area for Eurofragance, is leading the way in Halal certified products. Hence the importance of obtaining this certification for fragrances we produce at our factory in Asia, located in Singapore. Our aim is to provide Halal certified fragrances not only to Asian regions, but also to Africa and other parts of the world. In fact, sales in these continents are expected to increase as Muslim populations demand Halal products.
Eurofragance fragrances produced in Singapore: Halal-certified
Our factory in Asia can now produce Halal-certified fragrances, which means our production processes and our formulations follow the Islamic law and accomplish the main requisites for our fragrances to be considered as Halal- certified.
Eurofragance goal is to keep working, with passion and creativity, to make our customers´ products those preferred by consumers all around the world.
How innovation in this field has led to detergent scents which last longer and fulfil consumers expectations
We are surrounded by scents. Even if we don´t pay attention or we don´t realize, we can detect millions of odours. Moreover, scents have an impact on our mood, make us feel different sensations. Hence the importance of our clothes fragrance, the fragrance that comes with us everywhere and every day.
That is why when buying a detergent, as a consumer, we don´t only think about its functional characteristics, which are also important, we decide by smelling the product too. Furthermore, culture and geographic area are two important factors that influence consumers choice of detergent. Depending on what kind of scents we have been used to since we were a child and depending on the weather at our city – temperatures, humidity…-.
So, the variety of detergents in the market is as wide as consumers needs and expectations. Out there we can find detergents in different forms (liquid, powder, tablets) and different fragrances (lavender, jasmine, citric combination, rose, etc).
Wonder how Eurofragance designs and produces fragrances for detergents all around the world? Our perfumers, fragrance evaluators, sensorial marketing teams and technical application experts work together to design the perfect fragrance combination for detergents and laundry products in general.
We innovate and seek the highest quality in our products. A good example of this is Eurocaps, a new fragrance delivery system that gives long-lasting qualities to fragrances applied in different products such as fabric softeners, detergents.
Apart from this innovative system, that guarantees our fragrances high quality and long-lasting properties, we do provide a unique understanding of lifestyles and consumer needs around the world. Our Development teams from our Creative Centers in Asia, Middle East, America and Europe, interpret local trends, research and test scents to ensure we add value to our customers’ brands.
The aim is to create a pleasant scent experience to the consumer, providing outstanding fragrances and ready-to-market concepts to our customers.
Know in detail the new collection Eurofragance presented at Beautyworld Middle East 2017
“For the first time, anyone can fully express itself in a scent”. That has been one of the main attractions of Eurofragance´s presence at Beautyworld Middle East. Visitors have been amazed about the possibility of creating their own scent. Once again, we have been able to captivate with our fragrances.
Our new fragrance collection, Scentsoo, is based on a customised fragrance concept that has been developed for perfumery, home and personal care sectors. Fragrances in this collection have been created by our perfumers Julia Rodriguez and Olaf Larsen. According to them, “Scentsoo awakens our customers’ senses, allowing them to combine different fragrances, applications, textures and materials to make customised, unique creations”.
This customisation option is available in the fine fragrance, personal care and homecare areas. For fine fragrances, we have created 4 perfumes -Powder in Bloom; Addictive Delight; Sublime Potion and Oriental Night- that can be mixed with four oils -Velvet Molecules; Touch of Suede; Amber Blush and Dark Woods-, to create infinite combinations.
In the home care category, we have worked with Bakhoors: fragrances for home, very similar to incense. Bakhoors are very common in the Middle East and are also used on special occasions such as weddings. Besides, they are used to perfume body, allowing the scent to permeate it. For BWME, we prepared an innovative collection of Bakhoors that use one same base, Silverscent, combined with four different oils: Velvet Molecules; Touch of Suede; Amber Blush and Dark Woods. This variety allowed customers to create signature scents for their home.
And the last, but not the least, is our body care segment! We have really boosted it by launching and innovative beauty ritual that consists of five stages. In this case, we have used one perfume, Powder in Bloom, which varies depending on the application. This is the first time that the olfactory layering concept has been used in the personal care segment! That is why we have taken this innovative collection to the extreme, with new textures, upgraded formulations and unusual ways to take care of the skin.
Furthermore, apart from our usual stand at the BWME, stand F28, which has been focused on fine fragrances and home care, we have had a new stand, G32, featuring personal care. This is a result of our push to body care segment. Both stands have proved extremely popular during the trade fair thanks to the high-tech features that have made an enormous impact, with visitors enjoying their dynamic, multisensory, delightful and interactive possibilities.
We have again made an impression at Beautyworld Middle East. Because creativity is a way of thinking and, most of all, a way of being. Congrats team!

However, this is a result of a superb team work, and today we want to uncover and recognize the hard and brilliant work behind our new fragrance collection.
How we get to present an amazing collection like Scents?? It all started in September last year, when our Marketing Sensorial Studio started thinking about a concept, a BIG IDEA to bring to our new fragrance collection, something different and innovative. They presented the briefing to Eurofragance´s Management and then, after a BIG YES, it was time for the rest of the teams to start working on this BIG IDEA.
In December, Fragrance development managers and perfumers initiated the fragrances´ design at the same time that Communication & Image department began planning how the stand would look like. In the meanwhile, Marketing Sensorial Studio searched for suppliers, designing graphic supports and choosing the fragrances packaging. Besides, there was also a further team involved which is Applications Sensolab Studio. They had a key role on our Body Care fragrance collection…You will know why soon!
Overall, it has been a cross-departmental project, between our HQ in Barcelona and Dubai, where our PEOPLE, our PASSION and our CREATIVITY have come together to create an unforgettable fragrance collection.
Be ready for a multisensory immersion, unexpected textures and new sensations. Be ready for Scents?. More details coming soon!
Do you want to know Eurofragance´s surprise on this edition?
It actually is the most important beauty fair in the Middle East. Beautyworld Middle East is an international trade fair for beauty products, hair, fragrances, raw materials and wellbeing. Over 37.000 people from 131 countries visited this fair last year.
In 2017, Beautyworld Middle East celebrates its 22nd edition, from the 14th of May to the 16th, in Dubai. And, guess what, Eurofragance will be participating again this year in this key event for the fragrances world!
After more than 25 years creating best-selling fragrances to Middle East consumers, we have a deep understanding and appreciation of the Oriental culture. This fact allows our perfumers to create unique fragrances imbued with the most valuable and exotic scents. They give a special touch to all their creations for Attar Mukhalat, Western Perfumes, Fusion Fragrances for fine fragrances, Personal Care, Bakhoor and Home care products.
Middle East is a strategic area for our company. It has always been a captivating region for us due to its rich history around fragrances. First uses of perfumery in the Islamic culture are recorded back in the VI century. Nowadays, Middle East is one of the most popular areas when talking about fragrances trendsetters.
We already talked about Arabic perfumery and its important role in the development of European perfumery. The main feature in Arabic perfumes is not only its sensuality, but also its exoticism and the intense scent of Arabic fragrances. Europe pursues the quality, intensity and sensuality of these fragrances.
However, each area of the planet, each region, has also got its own tastes, its own climate, its own raw materials, its own preferred olfactory notes… So, at Eurofragance, we have been working on a solution for this.
Can you imagine a tailor-made fragrance, a fragrance that combines Arabic sensuality with European perfumery touches? Can you think of a fragrance that really matches your expectations? A fragrance with unique touches?
Our surprise at Beautyworld Middle East represents a futuristic vision that will reveal unexplored territories and find new ways to perfume your life. Stay tuned!
