Mumbai-based Cosmos Brands Distributors Pvt. Ltd, one of the major distributors of international perfumes in India, is planning to set up hair salons and perfumeries across the country.
“We will be setting up 18 Frank Provost hair salons and 27 La-Galleria perfumeries within three years,” Alexis Szabo, chief operating officer of Cosmos Brands, told the media on the sidelines of the 9th Marketing & Retail Conclave organised by Technopak.
Cosmos currently has five La-Galleria perfumeries and plans to open three more in the next 11 to 12 months.
“The cost of setting up a salon will be around Rs 2,000 to Rs 3,000 per square foot, while a perfumery might cost Rs 500 to Rs 3,500 per square foot,” said Szabo.
The company currently distributes, markets and manages brands like Roberto Cavalli, Loewe, Morgan de Toi, Gian Franco Ferre, Salvador Dali, Trussardi, Jessica McClintock, Lalique, Charriol and Aigner.
The company is also planning to bring in more international brands for the Indian market.
