The Spate POV

Consumers are getting more conscious when perfume shopping, and there is an uptick in the number of searches for natural perfume. Natural perfumes are typically formulated using essential oils, floral extract, and organic, plant-based ingredients rather than synthetics. Searches for scents like sandalwood, vanilla, peony, and ginger reveal that the consumer is interested in a wide range of scents and that there is a lot of opportunity here for brands to play around with fragrance.
