During the review period it was noted that counterfeit products inhibited the growth of fragrances. Counterfeits of premium fragrances are usually easily found within the South African market, and are relatively cheaper than original products, and the packaging and scent resemble that of the original fragrance packaging and scent.
With many consumers not being able to afford premium fragrances, but not necessarily keen to trade down to mass fragrances, this has created the opportunity for smaller players to enter the market and promote “inspired scents” at an affordable price; for example, The Fragrance Boutique and First Lab Scents. These are niche players that are entering the market by operating online, as they do not have a physical presence in any store.
Although fragrances are regarded by some consumers as non-essential items, which many people have removed from their budget due to the tough economic situation in South Africa, celebrity fragrances remain popular. Many consumers have their favourite pop idol or celebrity that they continue to support despite tough economic times.
