Brand awareness and customer engagement are built on these many different touchpoints. Each one is an opportunity for our talented employees to express our Maisons’ unique values by accentuating our creativity and awakening more emotion. Sephora’s smart mirrors let customers try onmakeup using augmented reality. Moët Hennessy uses artificial intelligence tohelp customers create bespoke tast- ing experiences with their friends. At Guerlain Parfumeur stores customers can explore a vast universe of fragrances and emotions, using a digital perfume organ to craft their own signature scent… The possibilities are endless. Digital technology and innovation will continue to be harnessed for the benefit of our ideas and brands, creating value and enriching the customer experience. What can digital technologies bring to luxury brands, rooted in tradition?
