A: We select the brands we represent very carefully. Many fragrance brands in the UK have sadly lost the 'prestigious' tag in recent years and are heavily discounted and cheapened.

Q: Who is The Fragrance Counter?
A: We are a UK business based in Chorley in the North West of England.  We are an established business.  We also have a High Street shop and we are largely, family run.  We have agencies with all of the brands we sell. That means we have permission to sell the products and have full support with merchandising and any after sales issues we encounter.  

Q: How does The Fragrance Counter impact the environment?
A: With each passing day we are reminded how important our fragile our environment is.  We like to think we do our utmost to act responsibly each day.  We re-use packaging a lot!  So boxes and packaging material used to deliver goods to us are re-used to deliver goods to you as much as possible.  All cardboard that we are unable to re-use is recycled.  When we have to package goods for safe transport we use it as sparingly as possible but enough to ensure a safe delivery.  All of our staff are locally based, they all literally walk or cycle to work!  The government cycle to work scheme is available to all staff.  Office work is often carried out at home when possible.  Our building is compact, so we are only heating a space that is used, not a huge empty warehouse.  We are currently investigating the use of solar power for our building.  Our property is double glazed.  We will continue to ensure care for the environment is always considered when we make business decisions.
