Why this business was started
This was principally a hobby that turned into a lifestyle business for me. I started it to prove I could start a business from nothing, establishing key relationships with suppliers whilst learning about social media marketing, Google Adwords, TrustPilot and excellent customer service.
The reason of selling this business
This was always a secondary business to me, and my primary business is taking a large amount of my time. I feel with the right nourishment, this business could be even more successful, and I'm ready to hand it on to someone who has the bandwidth and capital to take it to the next level.
What's involved in running this business
I pack and post some orders, place orders with suppliers, answer customer queries and tweak our marketing campaigns.

How to grow this business
The principal inhibiting factor for me is simply product range. I have established relationships with suppliers in numerous countries and drop-shipping capabilities from perfume wholesalers in the UK, but with additional investment in products, it would allow the business to grow further. Expansion into other geographies would also represent an excellent opportunity for growth.
Skills to have
Customers frequently look to us for our knowledge and passion of all things fragrance. This is a business but also a hobby: I'd suggest the new business owner have the same passion, or employ knowledgeable staff, to achieve the same.
