The good old vest is about to shake up the world of fashion. Lux has developed a revolutionary product for the Indian market, drawing from deep insights about the Indian masses—Lux Cozi scented vests. Proposed by 82.5 Communications (Mumbai), formerly known as Soho Square, an Ogilvy group company, this innovation was not an easy feat to pull off, and took months of research and development. In India, the tropical climate, and the long commutes people take to work every day aggravate the problem of excessive sweating. Besides fulfilling the promise of comfort, these scented vests are designed to help people stay fresh even after a long day at work. All this, so India looks good, feels good and smells good!
The other unique feature of these vests is the fact that they retain their fragrance even after continued washes, so people can sweat it out in style. An ad campaign, comprising two TV spots, radio spots and print campaign featuring Varun Dhawan will soon be launched to promote the product.
