L'Occitane Travel Retail launches 'Gift Of Nature' campaign at Frankfurt Airport.

L’Occitane Travel Retail has debuted its ‘Gift Of Nature’ campaign at Frankfurt Airport. (Pictured, Terminal Z).

L’Occitane Travel Retail has turned the next page on its successful ‘Nature Positive’ campaign with a series of pop-up activations at key global airports in advance of Earth Day (22 April).

Running for four months, the ‘Gift of Nature’ project will roll out to countries in Europe, the Americas, and APAC, beginning with 360-degree podiums at the A and Z terminals at Frankfurt Airport in association with Gebr. Heinemann.

As its name suggests, the nature-inspired ‘disruptive’ promotion arranges the podiums by key brand ingredients including verbena, almond and shea butter.

Accompanying is a ‘Nature Positive’ collection and photo booth, flanked by an abundance of foliage and props such as wooden trees and flowers exuding real scents to highlight messages of biodiversity and sustainability.

This underpins L’Occitane en Provence’s long-held stance towards pioneering change within the environment and commitment to environmentally friendly agricultural and manufacturing methods, eco-design and sustainable packaging for the benefit of local biodiversity, producers, and communities via its motto, ‘Reduce, Recycle, React’.

During the ‘Gift of Nature’ campaign, travellers can get their hands on a 150ml travel retail exclusive LEP of the best-selling Shea Hand Cream, which is presented in a 95% recycled aluminium tube decorated with a fauna and flora motif designed by Philippines-based illustrator Raxenne Maniquiz.

A hand cream wall invites customers to select a travel retail exclusive custom-made kit  of 30ml creams and enjoy a hand massage.

From April onwards, an exclusive travel retail collection of five 30ml top-selling hand cream sets will also be available in Rose, Shea, Cherry Blossom, Lavender and Verbena fragrances.

L’Occitane Travel Retail will be offering a donation to NGO Meli Bees to support regenerative agriculture in the most endangered areas of the Amazon.

Customers can take pictures of themselves on a rope swing beneath a tree in the Nature Positive photo booth to share on Instagram, with every post attracting a €1 contribution from L’Occitane to Meli Bees, up to a maximum of €2,500.
