We visit the team at Wood Green

By Lauren Carbran
 

Today we visited our Wood Green store in London and caught up with the team to talk about all things fragrance…

Here’s what Deputy Manager, Joe had to say:

How long have you worked with The Perfume Shop?

3 ½ years

What would you say is the most rewarding part of your role?

I enjoy managing different people and helping them progress through their roles, from store assistant to supervisor for example. Supporting new starters and helping them develop their knowledge of fragrance is also a great part of my role.

What has your career highlight been?

Being promoted to Deputy Manager.

How do you help a customer who is looking for a new fragrance?

First of all I try to find out as much about the customer as I can, starting with finding out who the fragrance is for. If it is for themselves, I ask which perfumes they’ve used before and have loved. I then try to find out a little about their personality, age range and then when they will be wearing the fragrance i.e. if it’s for everyday use or a special occasion. With this information I can make suggestions tailored to their personal preferences and find a fragrance that matches exactly what they’re looking for.

3 things you love about working at The Perfume Shop:

  • Being part of such a big team, there’s 20 of us in total (!) and I really enjoy working with all of them.
  • No two days are ever the same.
  • I’ve worked my way up from sales assistant and so with each role there’s been new challenges which keep my job interesting.

Give us an interesting fact about perfume:

Every bottle of perfume has its own unique story that’s inspired the fragrance.
