“More such products are expected to be launched as consumers are seeking more personal and deeper experience in health and beauty products,” Hill added.

For example, Hill noted that Kahf in January 2024 launched a product which is a combination of oud (agarwood) aroma with amber, vanilla, and fruit, which will provide a balance that will be appropriate for night use as it will give a warm and comfortable feel.
