[...]

[...] Therefore, before proposing any strategies, a brief overview of D'Orsay's current situation will be presented based on the marketing mix elements, this shall then be assessed based on the environmental factors presented in Part 1 of this report, and finally used to establish a viable marketing objective. Current situation for D'Orsay, Product: The current positioning of the D'Orsay ranges is as exclusive and high quality, rare fragrances.
