Here’s something interesting from a 2023 survey: When 10,012 Americans were asked about their most used personal care item, 43% of them chose fragrances and perfumes.

But, if you look at this on a bigger scale, out of the 340 million US citizens, 146.2 million might choose fragrances as well.

Now, that's an impressive number!

But why are fragrances so popular? It’s because more and more people see them as an essential lifestyle product.

And it’s not just women, men are getting into personal care and beauty products too.

So, retailers, this is a big chance for you to cash in on the growing demand. You’ve got options:

  • Body Fragrances: Perfumes, mists, deodorants, colognes, etc.
  • Car Fragrances: Vent sticks, aerosols, cardboard air fresheners, etc.

Trends Driving Fragrance Sales in the US

Gift Sets

Gift sets from brands like L'oreal, Estée Lauder, Dior, Versace, etc., are. a big hit with retailers.

Why? Because customers love getting multiple products in one set.

For example, a set may have Eau de Parfum, body lotion, bath bomb, and a roll-on perfume.

Moreover, gift sets make a good present for special occasions like Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and the Holiday season.

In fact, men’s prestige fragrance sales were 85% higher in 2022 around Father’s Day, with gift sets being the top pick.

Mini Perfumes

Mini perfumes are selling super-fast because they're small, cheap, and let people try a scent before buying a big bottle.

They're one-third the price of large bottles – so if a big one costs $30, the mini would be just $10.

That’s why they accounted for 38% of all fragrance sales this year!

Also, roll-on perfumes are becoming really popular they’re easy on the wallet and lots of people are buying them!
