Luxury means creation and excellence. In all its dedicated fields - jewelry, watch making, fashion, perfumes, beauty products, hospitality... Luxury is linked to perfection. Although Luxury is a multifaceted concept with many possible definitions, it is generally accepted that it encompasses elegance, refinement, sophistication and premium prices. Luxury goods and services consumers therefore have high expectations in terms of quality and experience, and luxury brands are not to be managed like any other consumer goods or durable goods brand: they call for a marketing of their own.
