Today marks 2 years of creating the #ScentsOfMaldives here at Vilunü. We’re celebrating our anniversary this year with a little look back at 2021.
Last year, we formulated over 4 new scents and 4 new products. Our new scents had a wider range and targeted different moods, including one scent that exploded in popularity with our customers.
New additions to our scent directory include, Rose & Vetiver, Tuberose & Gardenia, Jasmine & Guava Leaf and Passionfruit & Green Leaf. The latter has been a constant bestseller ever since its launch in April 2021.
We also introduced 4 new products into our home fragrance range. These include Scented Beads, Room Sprays, Candles and bundled boxes called The Scented Beads Essentials Box.
Halfway through the year, we also forayed into occasion based gifting with our very first wedding favour gift boxes. Our clients were able to order customized boxes of their favourite Vilunü scented beads, flourished off with custom ribbons.
With each new order of our prints, we rethink our packaging and wherever possible, we opt for more environment friendly options. We shared some more info about our packaging designs and the steps we take to minimise our impact on the environment on our blog post here.
We also took a step forward and talked to a few local outlets here, here and here. Thank you to everyone who took the time to chat with us and read about us.
In more exciting news, we also celebrated partnerships with 4 more stockists, Authentic Maldives - Malé, Authentic Maldives - Kuda Villingili, One & Only Reethi Rah, as well as Telio.
Lastly, with reduced restrictions in public gatherings, 2021 became the year we took part in our first ever pop-ups, courtesy of Crossroads Maldives. We had a lot of fun conducting plant quizzes and a scent guessing game, and we also finally got to meet some of you in person.
While last year was really challenging, it also came with a lot of firsts for us. A big thankyou to our customers and stockists, both new and old, for experiencing the #ScentsOfMaldives with us.
We hope you have enjoyed our new scents and products. We’re looking forward to creating more products in 2022 that you can enjoy and take home with you.
