Business Plan to start a perfume business

If you are only a perfume seller, you can skip this part because this part is especially for perfume manufacturers and discuss a proper business plan to start a perfume-making business.

In this business plan, we will discuss the resources required and estimate the cost involved in it. So resources required to start a perfume making business are:

#1 Raw material required to start a perfume making business

For making a perfume, you need to acquire all the necessary raw materials as per the fragrance. Raw materials should be of good quality and must be capable of producing good fragrance.

For example, you should prefer fresh roses instead of flute ones to manufacture a high-quality perfume for making a rose perfume.

Apart from that, you need some packaging material like a perfume bottle, cap etc. So arrange it accordingly.

#2 Machines required to manufacture perfume

There are different stages to produce different types and fragrances of perfumes. A normal 440-volt perfume making machine will cost you about $5,000 in the United States or Rs 2.34 Lakh in India. You can check its latest price from Alibaba and Indiamart, respectively.

#3 Workers required for starting a perfume making business

Some people, especially those living in rural areas, prefer to use man-made perfume instead of machine-made. So if they are your targeted audience, you need to hire at least 3-4 workers to start a perfume business.

On the other hand, if you are doing all the work by machine, workers’ requirements will be pretty less and as per the scale of your business. In the long term, you can save a lot of money by using machines instead of workers.

#4 Area required to start a perfume company

On a small scale, you can start the perfume-making business in an area of about 1100 square feet or more. But for a large-scale perfume manufacturing business, you need at least an area of about 10,000 square feet to become a part of the perfume industry.

How to decide the price of the perfume?

Now comes the time of determining the price. For determining the price of the perfume, first, you have to properly calculate the cost involved in it. 

The Costs involved include everything you spend on manufacturing a perfumer like rent on building, depreciation on machinery, cost on transportation, fuel, salary and wages to workers, cost of raw material, selling expenses like warehousing, advertising, electricity, water, internet or any other cost which your business occurs for making and selling the perfume.

After calculating the cost, analyse your competitors, product quality and targeted audience. After analysing, decide your profit margin (since perfume is a luxury product, you can take a good margin in it)  and add it to the cost incurred. The required value is going to be the price of your product.

Investment Required to start a perfume making business

If we talk about the investment requirement, then according to my estimate, a person can easily start a perfume manufacturing business with just Rs 47,00,000 in India or about $ 80,000 in the United States on a large scale.
On a small scale, the investment requirement is about Rs  4.32 Lakhs in India or $12,230 in the United States.
I have already discussed how to arrange funds in the article on the protein powder business, so you can read it from there.

How to sell perfume?

Make a marketing strategy and advertise your website properly on the internet. So that more and more people come to know about your product.

Lastly, be patient and wait because a new company takes some time to grow. Wait for some time and focus on improving the quality of your supplement product.

How to advertise perfume selling business?

Look, today’s generation is very brilliant and too health-conscious. So, in my opinion, it is best to use chemical-free (organic) raw materials for producing perfume.

After that, advertise your business on various social media platforms like Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram. More and more people get to know about your product, and since your perfume is completely organic, they will definitely prefer it over other brands.

But never spend a lot of money on advertising because it will just increase the price of the perfume, which makes it unaffordable for many.

Extra Tip

For the first 1.5 years, do not run for profits. Focus on making your brand name and a loyal consumer base. First of all, spend your time and money on making a good product instead of spending it on advertising.

At last, be patient and be consistent if you want to succeed in any business. So with this note, it is time to end this article and, as always, “ God Bless You All.”
