The sweet smell of success looks set to linger around UK perfume and fragrance businesses for many years to come. Even in times of austerity, the British are spending over £4 billion each year on products in this sector.
In one survey, almost two thirds of people in a relationship reported that they had bought their partner perfume or aftershave as a present. Many people now simply stock up on with their own favourite fragrances. If you have a nose for a good business deal, and a passion for perfume, then this could be the perfect time to go self-employed. And for many people, the best route is a perfume franchise.
Creating a stand alone business in the perfume and fragrance sector is tough, not least as customers lean towards established brand names and familiar retail outlets. Also, a perfume franchise benefits from favourable prices and supply deals that are beyond the reach of independent traders.
Adding to this, perfume franchises provide business management support, including access to training, marketing spend and websites. Becoming your own boss can mean trading successfully from day one.
The type of perfume franchise you choose for self-employment is up to you. The choice is wide. It includes for example rising brands such as Eden Perfumes shops, a franchise linked to Vegan lifestyles. FM Cosmetics offers a more mainstream retail franchise package for perfumes and associated products.
Alternatively, Equivalenza is a continental brand looking for UK retail partners, whereas high street regular The Fragrance Shop is looking to expand its existing UK franchise network.
