About UL Fragrance Team:
We provide independent fragrance expertise into project teams, to translate the needs of the project (brand/variant proposition and consumer benefits) into fragrance to ensure it meets both brand values and consumer expectations. To do so we use knowledge of cluster & consumer preference, Brand understanding and technical performance expertise.
Fragrance can determine whether a consumer re-purchases a product, as it’s one of the main carriers of emotion connecting consumer to a product experience.
The way a product smells should support its proposition, concept and application. Fragrance is therefore an integral part of the product and brand experience. We would argue it can make or break a product!
We are constantly monitoring new trends and opportunities and creating a ‘bank’ of fragrances that would work for our products and our cost targets. This proactive part of what we do feeds into the innovation projects and is where we can add most value and competitive advantage to the business.
What we are envisaging the fragrance manager role to deliver:
Fragrance Development and Management is at the core of the job, working in close collaboration with the rest of the Fragrance Capability team, R&D teams, CTI, Brand Teams and Fragrance Houses to deliver superior fragrance solutions in line with the consumer insights and opportunities identified for the market, validated through consumer and performance technical testing.
