When working with my clients, many of them are surprised to learn about all of the factors that go into the art of selling fragrance and scented goods. This is especially true for those businesses that don't necessarily specialize in fragrance and scented goods, but offer them as part of their offerings to their customers.

We help to support your product development needs and ensure a quality, luxury final product. If you're inspired, let's bring your vision to life.
Welcome! I wanted to create a digital hub of our favorite iconic fragrances from the 90s and connect you with ways to purchase them today (even if they've been discontinued). During the 90s, we saw the birth of some notable fragrances. I hope that by spending some time here, you can reunite with fragrances that you remember well, you can re-discover fragrances that you completely forgot about, and most of all, I hope memories of your life in the 90s come flooding back to you.
Well here we are in 2017. How did 2016 fly by so quickly? It's been quite a while since I wrote last, so I wanted to start the New Year off with a message in which I believe whole-heartedly: No matter what, STAY YOU. The beginning of a new year (for many) starts off bright and hopeful with promises of great change, renewal, and fresh starts. Growth and self improvement goals in specific and achievable ways -- are always important. It is equally important, however, to stay true to you.
You hear it all the time; There's nothing more important than customer service. And it's so true. I don't know if it's because I've spent many years in the luxury service industries or if it's because I've traveled all over the world in many types of situations, but I pay great attention to customer service - both from the provider and receiver's perspectives.
Fragrance is a great tool with which to extend one's brand. Not only does fragrance enhance the environment and ambiance of a place of business (i.e. a hotel or retail location), but it also creates an instant trigger that a customer or guest can use to link a specific scent with certain (and hopefully pleasant) memories or experiences. All of these reasons together support the concept of 'Scent Branding.'
Last night, I was watching a Fiat commercial and had made a passing comment about how I liked Fiat's new model - the 500x. I like how it is completely on brand with the look and feel of Fiat, but it is a natural transition into the larger, more SUV - type automobile. My comment then sparked a conversation/discussion/debate about how brands have grown and why it's been successful (or not) for them.
In the business world today, I have experienced, read about, and heard about way too many companies that are not being run the right way. So you might be saying that there is no one 'right way' to run a company -- and this is true. However, running a company the smart way will always be the right way. The smart way will never fail you. And too many companies are not being smart.
Why? There are a few reasons for this...
For those of you who have been following the journey of Royal Grey from the very beginning, you'll notice some changes. Firstly, I recently both re-vamped and simplified my website - it's cleaner, easier to navigate, and more to the point. Secondly, I've shifted gears slightly.
