In order to help our customers create marketing promotions for upcoming seasons, the staff at Natures Garden has completed a 2013 Fragrance Trend Report. In this trend report, we also mention the color trends and fashion trends that will be hot for Fall/Winter 2013/2014. Both research and intuition went into this report; allowing us to report how the moods of society will shape the upcoming trends.
Once we realized what the upcoming trends would be, we worked diligently with our perfumist to design fragrances that reflected those up-coming trends. We would like to thank our perfumist for creating these scents multiple times for us to get exactly what we were looking for. Once these new fragrances were created, tested, and approved, our graphic artist designed the trends report and fragrance graphics to make these trends “come alive”. We expect delivery of these new Trend Scents the week of July 8th.
Without further adieu….Our Fragrance Trends Report for Fall 2013. Go to the fragrance trends report to print out this entire report.
Trends are developed from socio-economic stimuli and world events that we as a society encounter. Colors, fashion, design, and fragrance are all influenced by how we see the world around us. While there are several trends that we will highlight in this report, the driving trend behind all of them is what we call “Free Spirited vs. Deeply Rooted”. This trend represents a division that is taking place between those in society who are embracing fast change, and those who are reverting back to a grass-roots mentality that would like to change things back to how they were many years ago. Change is the key word here.
Fall & Winter are seasons which embrace more intense, full-bodied, heavier fragrances that provide a sense of serenity and warmth during cold months. The key for 2013/14 is the combination of fragrance ingredients used to create new and intriguing experiences rooted in the familiar; or use of unexpected varietals not often used.
In addition to fragrance trends, color trends are also influenced by socio-economic factors and world events. The colors on this page are the color trends for fall & winter 2013/2014. Interestingly enough, 4 of the 13 color trends are colors found in camouflage; leading us to believe that there is a down-home country trend on the horizon. Pantone has stated that Emerald Green is the main color of Fall 2013.
Hot fashion trends are turtlenecks, clutch purses, slouchy pants that are narrowed at the ankle and sit high on the waist, rounded shoulders, and gold/copper begin to replace silver as the metallic of choice.
