The company brought a group of ambassadors from all over the world together in London for a "co-creation bootcamp".

Unilever's Lux hosted 32 ambassadors from 13 countries including Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand for a "co-creation bootcamp" in London in early August.

At once an educational experience for the ambassadors and a series of Instagram-ready activities, the event introduced the group to master perfumers from Firmenich (one of the brand's fragrance houses) and gave them time with Anne Radmacher, the global VP in charge of the brand, as well as the brand's digital production team. Meanwhile, the attendees created 160 bespoke, limited goodie-kits to give away to their followers.
