China’s number one brand of cosmetics is based on essential oils, and the group is on the island in order to buy essential oils of geranium. Considered by the company as being part of the best in terms of quality, they provide the basis for the creation of a wide range to their Chinese customers. The Camenae team will also use their stay on the island to produce its next advertising campaign.

It is at the Agricultural Cooperative of Essential Oils of Bourbon (CAHEB), the Camenae brand has planned to source their raw materials, thus promoting the attractiveness of local products such as essential oils of geranium, a high-yield export from the island.

On site, the Camenae management team was accompanied by a delegation of Chinese journalists, an aromatherapist, technicians, and a rising star of Chinese cinema, Liu Mengmeng.

Today, Reunion Island is positioned as a major player in the culture of geranium, particularly with essential oil of Geranium Bourbon, which is the most popular and, therefore, very popular.

With the main partners, Shanghai TV and Guangzhou TV, Reunion Island will make it into the homes of the Middle Kingdom with great visibility for the destination on the Chinese market. In total, there are 26 traditional media who will take turns in this major campaign.

The campaign will produce both videos and photos, highlighting the value of the production of essential oils and geranium plantations on the island. Destination Reunion Island will be presented as a land of well-being, aspiring to the use of natural products of exceptional quality. Shooting will take place in several stages, also highlighting the beaches of the island, volcano, or the site of the CAHEB.
