It is no secret that perfumes, of all scents and smell, have been a part of Filipinos’ way of life.
And that is why it’s no surprise either that Kabayans in all corners of the United Arab Emirates purchase an order or two of their favorite perfume brands at Coral Perfumes, the fastest-growing perfume manufacturer and retailer in the Middle East.
Established in 2012 and driven by an inspiring goal of providing top quality products with high value for money to all sectors of the market, Coral Perfumes has become a major player in the industry as a sough-after perfume manufacturer and a recognized seller of the world’s most popular international brands.
To date, Coral Perfumes has 10 showrooms around the Emirates—seven in Dubai and the other three in Sharjah, Al Ain and Fujairah—offering a long, diverse range of remarkable products—from exclusive, signature scents to renowned international brands—and special services, including private label manufacturing.
A fair share of the company’s sustained access should be credited to the 700,000-strong Filipino community in the UAE for its unwavering support of Coral Perfumes as a fast-emerging global brand.
“I am really grateful to all Kabayans who I can consider as the company’s lifeline,” says Coral Perfumes LLC Managing Director Shibi Thampi. “They have been a big part of our journey from the start and I hope that they will continue to support us as we expand our reach not only in region but also globally.”
Shibi admits that “at least 60 percent” of customers in their Al Rigga branch, the company’s flagship showroom, are Kabayans, highlighting how the Filipinos have embraced the “world class quality and high value for money” of products and services that Coral Perfumes is offering.
Himself a regular visitor in the Philippines, having been to some of the country’s top tourist destinations like Boracay, Palawan and Samal Island in Davao, among others, Shibi admits he’s keen on bringing Coral Perfumes products closer to the Filipino people in the near future.
“To say our company’s growth and potential is limitless is an understatement—even in the time of a pandemic. In the next five years, we are planning to open more showrooms across Asia for us to build Coral Perfumes as a certified global brand,” shares Shibi.
“In 2021, our factory in India will be fully operational. And hopefully in 2022, we will have our own factory and distribution in the Philippines, not only to produce our products but more importantly, provide job and business opportunities to Filipinos who are very dear to me. We are plan to up the Coral Perfumes for franchise holders in the country.”
At the moment, Coral Perfumes is determined to be more active in different charitable activities and empowerment programs of all Filipino organizations across the Emirates as its way of giving back to the community which has been so good to him.
“Of course, we are more than glad to take part in any event for the benefit of the Filipino community here in the UAE. We hope that Coral Perfumes, as a company which started from scratch, can serve as a true inspiration that they can achieve their dreams as long as they put in the work and be determined to make it work,” concludes Shibi.
