Mohammad Oliur Rahman, vice chairman of Al Haramain Perfumes Group of Company, Mohammad Ashfaqur Rahman, director, and Syed Sabbir Ahmed, executive director, were present at the inauguration ceremony.
Syed Sabbir Ahmed told The Business Standard the market for luxury goods like perfume is expanding in the country due to the rising purchasing power of consumers.
