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!

Balance is as important in perfume as it is in life

Balance is as important in perfume as it is in life

The right amount of certain olfactory notes can make a difference between a captivating perfume and an indiscernible one

Why balance is so important? We all spend our lives looking for balance, at least a minimum equilibrium which allows us enjoy little things and avoid drama.

Lately, there is an artist working on balance and inspiring the most creative minds through his work. Kokei Mikuni, an expert on rock balancing, gets inspiration from nature where he tries to find the balance, where he creates its art.

The perfume art requires also an essential equilibrium, the right amount of certain olfactory notes, no more, no less. Perfume creation is not only mixing some different raw materials. To create a perfume, we need to analyse how much quantity we need of each ingredient to get an enchanting fragrance instead of an indiscernible one.

The same effect that Kokei Mikuni gets when people see him constructing his rock structures is the effect that perfumers look for when producing a fragrance: attention, attraction, fascination, magnetism.

However, you don´t get those characteristics in a perfume easily. Creating a fragrance requires not only a balance among the olfactory notes we are adding. There are more elements to be considered. Apart from following the regulatory rules,  perfumers need to find the balance between the following points: what the client expects from the perfume, what scents the targeted consumers are willing to wear, what kind of smell matches the goals pursued with the perfume creation and also what are the ideal olfactory notes to express what that creation pretends to be.

After considering the above aspects, it is time to find the balance! And yet the balance can be subjective, it depends on the nose who smells.

At Eurofragance, our balance comes from the perfect combination between PEOPLE, PASSION and CREATIVITY. These are the mainstay of our essence which aims to capture sensations.

The road to a successful company

Have you ever wondered what makes a company to be successful?

There are so many articles out there. However, there is something essential for a company to succeed. It is something articles don’t usually mention: company´s soul.

Eurofragance launched 26 years ago as a family owned company but with a decisive vision of an international business. This mix of family origin and international projection made of Eurofragance a unique company which sees in its workforce and creativity the main pieces to succeed.

Companies must understand their markets, no matter what they produce and they have to analyse the cultures of the countries they produce for. This is what Eurofragance did from the very beginning and this is the reason why the company leads fragrances creation in markets as singular as Middle East.

In a world where change is continuous, innovation and creativity are necessary to be successful. Besides, globalization forces companies to understand the local realities in a global context, which means, from a company´s point of view, the need of understanding different cultures and markets and the need of adapting products and communication to different and diverse target.

The proximity to the customer is part of Eurofragance´s essence. It is present from the very beginning, when a very young Santiago Sabatés, our CEO, met with his Eastern clients and was received as a brother and a friend and in return he provided them with the best service he was able to give.

Many of our clients have accompanied us on this path to success and they are also protagonists of a story that is written for them.

Eurofragance works in partnership with their clients to design the best fragrances, making their products those preferred by the consumers.

Actually, in 2015 we grew more than 13% and achieved a turnover of €63.1 million. Our growth is due to increased sales and good performance in all our markets, particularly America, Asia and the Persian Gulf. The workforce has also grown by 10% to 222 employees.

We are People, Passion and Creativity. We want to be a global leader, Capturing Sensations with our fragrances so that they promote well-being and happiness.

From now onwards you will find in this blog contents about the perfume world, the importance of smells and the way our senses affect our lives.

We want to share our knowledge, our experiences and our projects with you.

We are Capturing Sensations. You don´t want to miss them.
