In fact, it’s no longer good enough to deliver branding that reinforces the status quo on shelf, wrote Kevin Marshall in Resonating in a New Reality (GCI September 2011), brand owners must create packaging that far exceeds consumers’ expectations – something extraordinary, intuitive, memorable and, most importantly, meaningful. More than ever, packaging needs to resonate with consumers for products to compete on shelf.

In flacon production, the important aspects include  shape, the brilliance of the glass color, the even distribution of the glass and a perfect surface finish. These are what give the flacon its unique expression.
