For the launch of “Force”, its first male fragrance, Biotherm created a website called Your Force on which Internet users have to fight against water in order to calculate their force quotient. The website uses a webcam to detect movement which enables browsing on the website without a mouse, just by moving your hand. Biotherm have an iPhone application and terminals in stores that use this same concept.

In order to convince a young male target not engaged with traditional toiletry campaigns, Biotherm uses a deeper interactive experience, with the way the consumer interacts with the website becoming itself indicative of the product benefits.
