Getting on the SERPs for these large queries could be a fruitful task. The Perfume Shop reigns supreme with a spot at the top, followed by Fragrance Direct. Nice work!

How are fragrance services performing on social?

Social media is a crucial element of any business. Making sure you’re building an audience on social can benefit you in the long run, translating into sales and customers that you can rely on time and time again.

We perform an analysis on the social side of the fragrance industry to see who’s performing the best. That way, you can see who’s got the best strategy and mimic it for yourself. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel here.

The top five fragrance brands on social sites are:

  1. fragrancex.com
  2. theperfumeshop.com
  3. perfume.com
  4. fragrancedirect.co.uk
  5. thefragranceshop.co.uk

Our analysis found Fragrance X to be the best brand on social in 2020. They had a social score of 2093 with over 1 million followers across their various platforms. For the fragrance industry, this is actually very good when compared to the competition as other brands have scores below 1000.

When looking at their socials, it is clear why their social score is above everyone else. Their Facebook – which is their best platform in terms of followers – has a decent engagement rate given Facebook’s culling of organic visibility. They post a lot of video reviews featuring people explaining new perfumes and what they’re like. As video content is a great way to boost reach and influence, other brands should be looking to Fragrance X for tips and tricks.
