Description

"The impact of a saturated marketplace and increased competition from scented toiletries has led to flat performance in the $3.7 billion fragrance category. To combat consumer apathy and confusion, industry players can leverage new product development and honed marketing emphasizing value-added benefits/functionality, demographic-specific use, and customization. Delivering unique consumer experiences will be instrumental to encourage greater frequency of use and an increased repertoire of fragrance variety."
