Center Fresh Calls for a Fresh Take to First Dates this Fresh Breath Day

Center fresh, the iconic gum, and the mint brand has had a finger on the pulse of all things youth over the years. Eponymous with redefining youth culture in the space of fresh breath confidence the brand has tapped into several relatable youth moments to create iconic narratives that resonate and inspire. 

So, it comes as no surprise that the power brand from Perfetti Van Melle chose to commemorate Fresh Breath Day (August 6) by calling for a fresh take on a common malaise amongst the millennials and Gen Z – the stress that comes with first dates!  The new digital campaign launched by the brand featuring Rohit Saraf and Alaya F, focuses on modern dating conundrums and seeks to change the dating experience to what it should be - fun, fresh, and stress-free.

For our millennials and Gen Z, the dating rule book is largely governed by how they are perceived during preliminary interactions. Young men and women give into the fear of judgment and therefore find it difficult to express their true selves, both virtually and in person. When to text, how to frame the text, who pays the check, and why is it so hard to meet people for the first time? This dynamic is rife with overthought and anxiety when it comes to dates, especially the first date.

Center fresh’s new digital film highlights this precise scenario and is a relatable stream of consciousness-style narrative. Alaya F and Rohit Saraf go through the typical thought cycle of what happens after you meet a cute guy or girl. They untangle the anxiousness of the whens, hows, and whatnots that eventually takes the fun out of the dating experience. Center fresh with its instant fresh breath proposition is portrayed as the enabler of confidence as the film calls for a fresh, and authentic approach to dating that is not marred by the typical rules of engagement.

Rajesh Ramakrishnan, MD- Perfetti Van Melle India (PVMI) said, “Center fresh has been synonymous with ‘freshness’ at its core for almost three decades. The brand has pivoted on fresh breath confidence with contextual snippets and narratives that are relatable and resonate with the youth. This Fresh Breath Day, our endeavor is to bring the magic of first meetings and have a fresh take on stereotypical and classical rules that cloud the youth. We’re happy to onboard Alaya and Rohit as they truly represent the youth of today: confident, non-conformist, spontaneous, and strongly resonate with the brand personality.

To drum up the engagement for consumers, both Alaya F and Rohit ask their fans to share un-stereotypical dating ideas that are fun and witty. Two lucky winners with the freshest entries get a chance to go on a dream date with the Rohit and Alaya F on Fresh Breath Day, i.e., August 06.

The campaign collaboration has been facilitated by Wavemaker India, with support on the creative front from Ogilvy India. The campaign will be further amplified through YouTube and other social media platform promotions.
