Penhaligon’s Luna

Luxury packaging


Leading retail packaging specialist, Keenpac, has created an inspired new look for a recently launched floral fragrance by British perfume house, Penhaligon’s. Keenpac worked closely with Penhaligon’s packaging-development team to create a simple, silvery gold mother of pearl, tortoise-shell effect for the packaging of their latest eau de toilette, Luna. The concept for the new floral fragrance is taken from the mythical love story between the
Ancient Greek goddess of the moon and her lover Endymion.

Penhaligon’s was founded in 1870 by Englishman William Penhaligon, who opened a barber shop on Jermyn Street and created original perfumes made with fine, rare ingredients for a
sophisticated clientele in the decadent Victorian era. The luxury British perfume house offers a wide range of luxury fragrances online for women and men, as well as gifts, scented candles and grooming products.

To create the intricate pattern on the outside of the packaging, a mother of pearl tile was scanned and printed to produce the desired effect. In addition to the print, the finishes used included a white gloss laminate, gun metal for the foil on the lid and base and the lip and inner being made from a foam base. The design is fitted with a magnet closure within the lip for easy opening and closing.

Keenpac’s David Jenkins said,“We love working with Penhaligon’s on their complex and beautiful packaging. For Luna we couldn’t find the perfect material so we made it ourselves and finished up with a stunning fragrance pack.” Keenpac recently launched a brand re-fresh at this year’s Luxury Packaging exhibition at London’s Olympia. To ensure that
their brand is viewed as being design led, modern and accessible and one that their customers would want to be associated with, the makeover is centred on a striking new logo design that utilises the existing marque – the ‘Keenpac triangle’ – and includes an
on-brand strapline: ‘create, source & deliver’.

Covering a wide variety of sectors, including fashion, cosmetics and beauty, watches and jewellery, specialist retail, charity and on-line retail, Keenpac work closely with their customers to deliver high quality, bespoke luxury retail packaging, managing the process completely right through to delivery at store. Part of Bunzl – a FTSE 100 plc focused and successful international distribution and outsourcing group with operations across the Americas, Europe and Australasia – Keenpac’s innovative and cutting-edge solutions
have helped some of the world’s biggest and best known brands connect with their consumers.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
