Company Details

The Perfume Shop is owned by A.S. Watson, a parent company which is also responsible for Superdrug, Sunkist and a range of other brand names that you might have heard of. Indeed, many of The Perfume Shop’s branches are now actually located within Superdrug stores in a combination which has been a success for both companies.

Basically, The Perfume Shop sells smells - and very nice smells too. Their range includes Paco Rabanne, BOSS, Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Diesel and many other famous fragrances.

From a small start with just three stores in Birmingham, Belfast and Milton Keynes during the early 1990s, The Perfume Shop expanded into a chain over 250 outlets in the United Kingdom and Ireland. If you are considering approaching The Perfume Shop for full or part time jobs during term time or the holidays then use their store locator to find the closest opportunities to your university or home town.

The Perfume Shop employs around 1,400 people in total, but also takes on lots of temporary staff to fill Christmas jobs as sales surge when people are buying gifts for family and friends.

A typical career at The Perfume Shop could begin with a stint as a general Store Assistant, but the company’s training and development programme could soon see you moving into counter, store or even area management if you show your dedication.

Obviously, displaying strong customer service skills to your potential employers will massively improve your chances of securing this sort of work with The Perfume Shop.

New staff at The Perfume Shop are encouraged to enrol on a Certified Fragrance Sales Specialist (CFSS) Course to get a good grounding in the world of fragrance. The CFSS is a qualification which is recognised across the industry worldwide so would be a good string to your bow.
