Key Market Issues
Consumers in Russia will be seen to further move towards premium Fragrance brands instead of mass brands, encouraged by a better distribution reach from Health and Beauty specialist retailers in the country.

The Female Fragrances category holds a major share of Russia\'s Fragrance market, while the Male Fragrances category is forecast to register the highest growth during 2012-2007.

Russian retailers such as X5 Retail Group and Magnit continue to lead retail space; however, the French Auchan and German Metro Group have gained significant market share in the last decade.

Although the overall share of private label products in Russia\'s Fragrance sector is low in terms of value, the Unisex Fragrance category witnessed a high private label penetration rate in 2012.

Consumption of Unisex Fragrances is low but growing steadily, recording the second highest growth rate during 2007 and 2012.

Key Highlights
Women consume more Fragrances products by volume than men. Across both gender groups, Fragrances are mostly used by older consumers aged 55 and over and by the Moderate Income wealth group. Consumer analysis, based on Leisure Group, reveals that Time Rich Males and Time Poor Females have the highest consumption by volume share of Fragrances in Russia.

Male Fragrances will gain market share, while the market share of Female Fragrances will decline between 2007 and 2017.

The Men\'s Fragrance market has witnessed strong growth as grooming has become a more important priority for men, which has boosted the Men\'s Fragrance sector in the country. Men\'s taste for Fragrances is transitioning from classic scents towards more exclusive choices.

Packaging plays a significant role in capturing customers\' attention and influencing the purchase of Fragrances. While Glass is the most preferred packaging material for Fragrances due to its display properties, ability to hold unconventional shape, and tactility, packaging suppliers offer multiple design and packaging options for closures, containers, and outers.

The growing consumption of Fragrances will result in increasing demand for all packaging materials. The packaging can be used by marketers to encourage potential buyers to purchase their products. Marketers are constantly evolving new designs and types to draw consumers towards making Fragrance purchases.
