How multiculturalism makes our company a better place

You already know the heart of Eurofragance. We have also talked about our amazing “perfume makers”. Some of our fragrances collections have been presented on this blog as well (Scentsoo, REMEMORIES, …). Time now for Eurofragance´s main raw material: PEOPLE.

Our team consists of more than 250 employees from over 20 countries in the world. They come from different backgrounds, cultures, specialities. However, they all are equally important for our main goal: Capturing Sensations through our fragrances.

Being an international company with family roots has allowed us to have a global perspective without missing the importance of local point of view. The cultural diversity in our workforce helps us enrich our knowledge, our vision and, of course, it is conveyed into fragrances that cater to a wide type of markets and publics.

Diversity is one of our best assets. We promote multiculturalism and having a multicultural team makes our daily routine enriching. We exchange experiences and knowledge with our colleagues and this allows all of us to grow not only individually, but also as a team. Apart from our day to day routine, which includes interesting activities such as the contest “Fragrance of the day”, we also organize some teambuilding activities (sport competitions, gymkhanas and outdoor activities).

People are the backbone of Eurofragance´s values so we also believe that developing their talent and promoting leadership and management skills are critical to achieving company´s and employee´s goals. Our Eurofragancers can achieve their maximum potential by permanently learning, focusing on their talents and enjoying what they do.

Only a happy team can work with passion and be creative. So, one of our aims is to get a work environment where our team can develop their skills, state their ideas, be innovative, dare, etc. To Capture Sensations, we must feel them before.

We are our PEOPLE. We are PEOPLE, PASSION & CREATIVITY.

 

We firmly believe in the value of people and their capacity to take decisions as an instrument to make the company better every day”.

Millennial Pink collection or how to nail trends

Millennial Pink collection or how to nail trends

Eurofragance new line of fragrances for body brings joy and excitement to the market inspired by the uberpopular Instagram-obsession color pink

Even if you haven’t heard of Millennial Pink, you’ve seen it and you might be smelling it right now. In the summer of 2016 everyone started calling it Millennial Pink, when the colour pink had mutated and expanded to include a range of shades from beige with just a touch of blush to a peach-salmon hybrid.

Pink, originally aimed to little girls and rejected by young adults, has now new connotations thanks to nostalgia. Redolent of good times, nowadays it represents a new rebellious alternative prettiness, is genderless and highly inspirational. Millennial Pink trend inspired us to come along with a new fragrance collection, a new line of fragrances specially designed for body care products such as shower gel, body lotions or oils. These fragrances spread a feeling of prettiness, wellbeing and freshness while retaining intellectual detachment.

This collection consists of four fragrances: Pink Guava, Pink Palm, Pink Coral and Pink Rose. All of them are characterized by a fancy scent that keeps you smelling and wanting for more. Pink Guava main notes are guava, nectarine, berries and pink lotus. Pink Palm contains freesia, pineberries and plum. Pink Coral accords are hibiscus, pomegranate and pink lemonade. Finally, Pink Rose features a blend of pink musk, pink peony and rose petals.

At Eurofragance, we are now launching these fragrances for different markets and clients within the body care segment and also developing new ones for the Air Care sector.

There is nothing you cannot express in a scent. We not only create fragrances but also explore the senses. We work with new types of perfumed textures that trigger surprising sensations. Millennial Pink collection gives you the chance to experience a totally new way to see and smell pink. Do you dare?

How we get to present an amazing collection like Scents?? It all started in September last year, when our Marketing Sensorial Studio started thinking about a concept, a BIG IDEA to bring to our new fragrance collection, something different and innovative. They presented the briefing to Eurofragance´s Management and then, after a BIG YES, it was time for the rest of the teams to start working on this BIG IDEA.

In December, Fragrance development managers and perfumers initiated the fragrances´ design at the same time that Communication & Image department began planning how the stand would look like. In the meanwhile, Marketing Sensorial Studio searched for suppliers, designing graphic supports and choosing the fragrances packaging. Besides, there was also a further team involved which is Applications Sensolab Studio. They had a key role on our Body Care fragrance collection…You will know why soon!

Overall, it has been a cross-departmental project, between our HQ in Barcelona and Dubai, where our PEOPLE, our PASSION and our CREATIVITY have come together to create an unforgettable fragrance collection.

Feng Shui and aromatherapy, where wellness starts

Feng Shui and aromatherapy, where wellness starts

What do we know about the philosophy behind Feng Shui and the role of fragrances on it?

Feng Shui is a philosophical method coming from China and consisting of harmonizing the environment that surrounds us so this environment has got a positive effect on ourselves and our visitors.

This method is usually practiced in different places: houses, offices, buildings, etc. Furthermore, the well-known five elements are essential for Feng Shui: water, metal, earth, fire and wood. They represent nature`s energy.

According to Feng Shui, the way we organize furniture, decoration and rooms -either at home, office or buildings- has got an effect on our mood and wellbeing. So, it is time to re-think how we dispose different objects in our surrounding environments.

You might be wondering what fragrances have to do with Feng Shui. Well, the scents we choose for our personal space or our company`s offices are also important to create pleasant atmospheres, rooms where we feel relaxed, we feel good. We have previously talked about the power of fragrances to create unique atmospheres. Hence, the value that fragrances add to the practice of Feng Shui.

Some scents have a pleasant effect on us, boost our energy, make us relaxed…Imagine then a room where everything is just in the right place and where the air is fragranced with scents like jasmine, lavender, peppermint, lemon or rose, depending on your emotions and your taste.

It is actually common that specific fragrances have an effect on our mood, on our feelings and emotions. This leads us to a practice called aromatherapy, which is based on the belief that various natural scents have an intrinsic ability to influence mood, cognition and health. For example, jasmine is used to relieve anger, increase confidence, ease depression and as aphrodisiac while lavender is good to relax and peppermint is best for relieving stress.

Are you ready to improve your wellbeing by practicing Feng Shui along with aromatherapy? Have a look at your surrounding environment, what would you change? Now, smell the room you are in. Do you like the scent or you would rather choose another air freshener?

At Eurofragance, our perfumers, fragrance evaluators, sensorial marketing teams and technical application experts work together to design the perfect fragrance combination for a welcoming environment.

Expertise, creativity, passion and technology are key to create fragrances for products such as air fresheners, candles, detergents, softeners…The main purpose: to offer wellbeing through our fragrances.

Because wellness starts at our surrounding environment.

Happy International Women`s Day!

Happy International Women`s Day!

Did you know that women represent the 56% of Eurofragance´s workforce?

We believe in equality. We work to establish a real equality. This is the reason why Eurofragance employs a total of 143 women out of its 254 employees. Women represent the 56% of Eurofragance´s workforce.

From the very beginning, since the company was created, we never had a doubt that this would be a company where men and women have the same rights and opportunities.

In order to achieve equality, we also apply measures that guarantee the same salary and the same work conditions for both women and men who are on the same role. We all at Eurofragance are different but we all are treated equally.

Some other measures we apply to all our employees are flexible timesheet, health assistance and health insurance. These procedures help employees to have quality of life and to adapt their work times to their personal life.

We are People, Passion and Creativity and only in a flexible and enjoyable working environment we can be passionate and creative.

Furthermore, we also work for equality outside our walls, collaborating with projects like Educo´s one. Educo is a global development NGO that acts in favour of children by defending their rights, especially the right to a quality education.

Eurofragance, specifically, helps Educo on the SHE grants program. These grants cover girls’ schooling costs for the first year of secondary school. Equality starts since we are born, by having the same opportunities, boys and girls.

Finally, we don´t want to finish this article without a big thanks to all the amazing women who work at Eurofragance. Thanks for your work, your ideas, your passion and your trust in this amazing project: Capturing Sensations all around the world to create captivating fragrances.

Happy International Women´s Day!
