How to Start Your Perfume Business

If you want to make them yourself, you will be needing equipment like: blending tanks, sealing machine, filling machines, sealing machines, capping machines and auxiliary equipment. Also, you will need ingredients such as: flower, grasses, roots, resistance, spices, leaves, alcohol, benzene, isopropyl alcohol, sodium nitrate and fruits. To start the business, you will need to do the following:

Choose your Niche

Perfume has different types so you have to choose the one you want to venture into and also take into consideration the capital you have. If you have very little capital, you can go into perfume oils but if you have up to like #100,000, you can go for the sealed ones. I would advice you start from scratch i.e. start with selling the oils in small quantities so that as time goes on, you will be able to know your customers need, the shortcomings of the business, customers reviews and how to make your own perfume.

Source for Capital

Without money, no business will be able to stand as it is the bedrock of all businesses. There are many microfinance banks such as Grooming where you can borrow money to start up your business and pay back with little interest. If you feel you are capable, you can fund the business from your savings.

Start your business

After getting the capital needed, you can then start your business. Either you buy and sell or you make them yourself. Start by selling to your relatives, friends, and neighbors but make sure you wear one yourself to draw people’s attention to you with the smell.

Don’t just limit yourself to your environment. Move far away from your vicinity, go to schools, offices, hotels and places you know people would want to buy your product. Also take your business online as most things are done online nowadays. You can as well create a business page online where people can order for your product anywhere in the world.


Remember, you are not the only one into this business so make your price a bit lower than the market price, distribute to wholesalers and retailers and don’t forget to package your product in an enticing way.
