Scorpio Worldwide will be showcasing a number of new product ideas for in-flight sales at TFWA Asia Pacific Conference & Exhibition this year (Stand N20).
The phenomenally successful Lip Smacker range of flavoured lip-balms has been extended for inflight with a new exclusive Coca-Cola tin offering a combination of lip balms and lip gloss. This brand new item will launch in Q4 this year. Additional new packs will also be available to travel retail ground shops including a new Coca-Cola Lip Happiness Tin, a Coca-Cola Collectable Tin containing a tasty trio of Classic, Cherry, and Vanilla Coca-Cola flavoured lip balms and the Coca-Cola Trio Cane, that comes with three lip balms and a Coca-Cola can keyring.
The Max Benjamin range of natural-blend plant-based oil well-being candles comes from Co Wicklow in Ireland. The perfect travel gift, it comes in two varieties: Calm and Uplifting or Moroccan Mint Tea & White Pomegranate. Both contain two travel sized candles and will retail at approximately £25.00. Brand new in Singapore will be a luxury Well-being Diffuser in Calm and Uplifting varieties, each with a screw-cap bottle of fragrance and eight black diffusing sticks. Offered in premium packaging, the retail price will be approximately £30 ($45). Strong interest has already been shown from the Middle East and Asia.
Jacques du Manoir is proving to be one of Scorpio’s most successful watch brands, with sales of the new ladies double wrap strap watch far beyond expectations. Totally on-trend, the double wrap leather strap watches are available in several colours including white, pink, dark or light tan, chocolate, red, black, light and dark blue. These Swiss made watches come with a stainless steel case (some with rose gold plating), mineral glass, white dial with Roman numerals, and a two-year international warranty. With genuine Swiss quartz movement, the range is priced at just £99.99 ($149) and is expected to be a top seller for 2013.
A new collection of Chrono models is being added to the Sturmanskie watch range. Developed specifically for Scorpio, the Sturmanskie collection includes a replica of the first watch worn in space by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in 1961. Back in the 1960s Sturmanskie watches were the standard issue for Soviet pilots and were not available to the public – they were chosen because of their military precision, workmanship and reliability. Scorpio has now brought this amazing brand to travel retail with an exclusive collection of men’s retro watches, sympathetically designed to replicate the originals and- in particular – the Gagarin model. Suggested retail price of the new Chrono range is US$250.
These new lines join a wide portfolio of watches, jewellery, children’s products, travel essentials – including new Flatmates folding shoes, and perfume/cosmetics available to airline buyers globally.
Visitors to the stand will also be able to see the latest collections from leading brands Aviator, Montine, Pierre Cardin, S-Kross, Travel Easy Elite, Elonex, Time Design, Timberland, Hot Diamonds and more.
The cosmetics offer includes the massively successful Bourjois makeup collection, redesigned for 2013, and a wide selection of fragrance and skincare brands.
Scorpio will also be showing its full portfolio of Travel Retail brands, supported by a comprehensive range of POS and merchandising systems.
