Online Training

The Fragrance Foundation UK Online Training  

The Fragrance Foundation UK Online Training Programme* is designed to broaden knowledge of all aspects of perfumery, from the ingredient building blocks that create fine fragrance to how fragrance can be expertly sold in store. Look out for our trained specialists wearing their Fragrance Foundation Pin in store.

The Fragrance Foundation UK has launched an exciting new initiative of scented training cards to accompany the course and enhance your learning experience. The cards use encapsulated fragrance technology; millions of microscopic bubbles burst when touched and release each fragrance, enabling you to smell key ingredients from each fragrance facet.

In retail terms, this course will positively impact your sales and increase your success and performance in this unique and exciting industry.

The course focuses on ways to educate and assist you and your customers – helping to discover ideal fragrances and additional  products, and by doing so offering a true customer service experience within a defined selling skills method that leads to a purchase.

The course has been designed to reflect the current UK market, making it completely relevant and essential to anyone selling fragrance.

With accreditation to this programme you will be expanding your expertise and enhancing your career growth potential whether that is on the sales floor direct with a consumer or in any other area of the fragrance world

The course is perfect for people all over the country as it can be accessed from any place and we estimate around 15 hours of study across the 2 month period.
