  • Consumers show a preference for freshness: A ‘fresh’ scent is a preference for over half of UK fragrance consumers.
  • Scent comes before brand: Over two-thirds of UK consumers choose products based on scent type rather than brand. Highlighting the need for a rethink around in-store merchandising.

Opportunities in the UK Fragrance Market

Shake up scent profiles

There are opportunities to reimagine scent profiles, in alignment with consumer preferences in both scented personal care and fragrance. Fresh scents are preferred in both fragrance and scented personal care, highlighting opportunities to prove the ‘freshness’ of products by formulating with ingredients that are known from food and drink.

Tap into desire for nostalgia by bringing back old favourites

Whilst a desire for scents that promote nostalgia could be location-related, nostalgia can mean different things to different people. Brands that have scents which were once popular and have since been discontinued can bring these products back in a small quantities in order to drive hype with limited edition relaunches.
