Start Your Own Perfume Oil Business

One of the aspects of the fashion industry is perfume. It completes the whole package. And almost all of us love to put on perfume everyday of our lives especially during special occasions.

You may not be a famous celebrity like J Lo, Britney Spears and all the other celebrities which have ventured in this kind of business but think that you have the passion for perfumes then you might want to start your own perfume oil business. Here are a few tips o how to start this kind of business.

You don’t have to be a famous to be able to start your own perfume oil business. This business is open to almost all of us especially those who are passionate about it.

Start by making a careful study of the business. Read books in the local library in your community. If you can afford to buy books from bookstores regarding perfume making then you can invest in some of them. Attend perfume making offered in your community. Learn the basic chemistry of perfume making by attending seminars regarding the business. Once you are part of the business you can start joining as many organizations of the perfume industry. This is your way of meeting the pros of the business.

Planning every aspect of the business is important if not the most important of all. Know where you will purchase the best ingredients at reasonable prices. What will be name of your perfume line? This also one of the first considerations you need to take. Choose a name that can transcend time. Apply for the all the necessary permits and licenses before you operate your business.

Learn all the types of fragrances from cologne, eau de toilette, eau de parfum etc. You may want to start from scratch or you may want to tie up with an established perfume maker. You will give them your idea of what specific scent that you want then they will manufacture everything for you. Packaging is also important in this business. It has to be appealing to the eyes. Scout for companies that manufacture perfume bottle. There are many of them you just have to be vigilant in your search. You may also want a perfume bottle especially designed for you but you will need to extra for that.

Plan your product launch. Send out invitations two weeks prior to the launch. If possible send out invitations to as many as you can. If possible distribute miniature versions of your products as giveaways during your launch. Your fragrances should be reasonably priced to be more competitive in the perfume industry.

You’re your target market and think of ways to advertise your perfume line. The web is one the most effective way of advertising your business; send emails to your friends, distribute fliers, calling cards and brochures.

  • Winston said on August 16, 2016

  • Winston said on August 18, 2016
    thanks, my site is note completed yet. I wanted to check if it is required to have msds sheets for my fragrances or if I could just print "MSDS" sheets available upon request
  • James expert adviser said on August 24, 2016
    @Winston, it depends on the chemicals used in the fragrances. According to the OSHA "MSDSs must be developed for hazardous chemicals used in the workplace, and must list the hazardous chemicals that are found in a product in quantities of 1% or greater, or 0.1% or greater if the chemical is a carcinogen."
