AVING News interviewed Seo Ji-woon, the CEO of Ventus Ac Aqua, which participated in the MIK HOT SPOT (Made in Korea Online Exhibition) Seoul Food Startup Center.
Please introduce the company and the products.
Hello, my name is Seo Ji-woon, the head perfumer of Ventu Ac Aqua. Currently, we are making top-level niche perfumes and diffusers. We are creating the most realistic and close-to-natural scents of nature by using raw fruits, trees and plants. The raw materials are aged at a low temperature to leach out the fragrance and then put it in fragrance products like perfume or diffuser to make the fragrance vivid. Unlike other products that use artificial scent, we use only the natural scent, and therefore our products do not cause symptoms such as headaches.
And, we are making signature fragrance. We are making the signature diffuser and signature perfume that match the signature scent through ODM and OEM. We can say it’s custom made. We might not have all the scents in the world, but we have about one thousand scents. For our customers, we look for the scent they want together, and we make the scent right at the spot.
Do you have plans to enter the global market?
Middle Eastern people have long been using various perfumes. They are different from the perfumes used in Europe. They use the oriental type of perfume, but Europeans don’t use that. So, we plan to make the perfume group made with the oriental type and export them to the Middle East. In Japan, there are many luxury perfumes, but due to the characteristics of Japan, they want unique products, so we are also planning on making the products accordingly.
