PERFUME SALES TRAINING

We have 25 years experience in selling and marketing perfume. Let us create a unique sales program for your company that is designed to give your sales staff the tools to help their customer select the perfect fragrance in a quick and efficient manner. Your staff will learn how fragrance reacts differently with each skin type, how each perfume has a personality and how to apply their learnings to improve sales techniques. Understanding the difference between analytical description and emotional perception can turn your sales staff into perfume experts.

FRAGRANCE FOR EVENTS AND PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Create a unique fragrance for your event or promotional activity; after all the sense of smell is closely linked with memory, and you want people to remember your event. We have a library of scents to draw upon or you can work with one of our perfumers to create a bespoke scent for your event. Whether it is the smell of sizzling bacon for a food launch or the creation of a bespoke fragrance for a fashion runway show, The Powder Room can create any fragrance to meet your specific needs.

TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES

A Perfume Creation Masterclass is the perfect team building exercise for team events or conferences. Your team can create their own fragrance or can be challenged to create a fragrance together as a group. Ask your teams to create a fragrance that best represents your business. It can be then made in bulk and, as added employee appreciation touch, bottled to gift to your team after the event.

SENSORY BRANDING AND ENGINEERING

Studies have shown that scented retail spaces encourage customers to linger twice as long and spend double the amount. 74% of our emotions are triggered by smell, yet 83% of brand communication relies on visual stimuli. In todays challenging retail world and with online sales growing, physical stores require an extra edge to keep their customers returning and to entice new customers to visit. Creating a fragrance that becomes synonymous with your brand and is diffused into your space is an effective way to create an experience for customers. Allow us to create bespoke scent to reflect the needs of your business.

INTERACTIVE FRAGRANT EVENTS

Offer your guests a unique way to experience fragrance. Whether it is a custom interactive experience, wine and perfume matching, or cocktails and food designed to match your new launch, The Powder Room can create a bespoke experience for your event.

KID’S PERFUME PARTIES

A perfume party for young ladies is a unique and fun event and exclusive to The Powder Room. The birthday girl and her friends can make their own perfume from fun raw materials such as apple, bubble gum, pear, coconut and chocolate and take home their creations in a cute little bulb atomiser.

Gift the bride with her bespoke fragrance in beautiful custom bottle with her name and date of the wedding engraved on it. The scent will remind her of her Big Day forever.
