The new Lux Classic Collection was unveiled by Calice Becker, global fine fragrance expert and composer of Lux Soft Touch.

Women are no wallflower

Women across the globe are ready to set the world – and their partners’ passions – on fire. To uncover the secrets around Igniting the Spark, Lux conducted the Spark Research with more than 3,000 women in seven countries: Singapore, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and South Africa.

When it comes to their relationships, the Lux Spark Research reveals that globally, almost three quarters (68%) of women are constantly thinking about ways to ignite the spark between themselves and their partners.

In Singapore, the research highlights that our ladies are no wallflower either. Igniting the Spark matters to more than half our women (66%)– and they’ll work for it! 4 out of 5 of our women are happy to take things into her own hands and be the one to start the fireworks.

Igniting the inner Spark

For years we’ve been told that a fantastic outfit starting with gorgeous lingerie can make us feel fabulous, but the Lux Spark Research shows that the feeling starts even before that. When asked what would give them the confidence to Ignite the Spark, our women revealed that the ultimate confidence boost is having irresistible, touchable skin that radiates softness, with nearly half citing soft skin as their top confidence booster (45%).

Equally, wearing a favourite fragrance is an essential ingredient for women to feel confident enough to ignite the spark with their partner. On average, 40% of women feel their scent boosts their confidence more than any other factor. The great news is that Lux provides women with both divine fragrance and touchably soft skin, to help them feel fabulously feminine.

"The findings of the Lux Spark Research showed us women around the world associate igniting the spark with beautiful fragrance and touchably soft skin," said Susanne Arfelt, Marketing Manager, Unilever Singapore.

"The new Lux Collection gives seductively soft and fragrant skin that inspires and empowers women everywhere to ignite the Spark in their relationships."

Lux Spark Couple

Celebrity Spark Couple Andrea De Cruz and Pierre Png, whose relationship has thrilled Singapore over the years with their passionate love story and strong relationship, are Singapore’s golden couple when it comes to keeping the Spark ignited.

Andrea on her Spark with husband Pierre, "Our ‘Spark’ boils down to enjoying each moment and being romantic whenever time allows us to be together. And for us ladies, putting in that extra effort to make ourselves look good and feel our best, gives us a great confidence boost to initiate physical closeness to keep the Spark alive."

"After being married for 11 years now, it is important to remember not to take each other for granted. I still do everything that's within my means and power to make sure Andrea feels loved and supported her in all her endeavours, and that includes reminding her how beautiful she is when she’s confident," says Png.
