In 2016, the global fragrance market is estimated to be worth over $40B USD. Leading those numbers is the home fragrance sector, with personal fragrance following a close second. Within such a tremendous market, the competition is fierce. How does a manufacturer make their products stand out?
A consumer’s first impression of any fragrance product comes from the product’s packaging. From container to closure to labeling, the components of a product’s package will have someone either reaching for it or leaving it untouched. Unfortunately, this happens even before they have a chance to experience a fragrance product’s scent.
Choosing that perfect container and closure is the first step in creating your product’s unique hallmark appearance. In addition to your product’s aesthetic, safety and cost factor equally in choosing the appropriate packaging.
Below we’ve curated a bevy of valuable information and Glassnow product offerings to help you in your search for the perfect product packaging.
Glass vs Plastic
As we’ve established in a blog on this topic, glass containers will always give a product a more luxe aura and higher quality feel. Glass has long been the preferred choice for fragrance packaging. Not only for its upscale look and feel, but for scientific reasons as well. Packaging fragrance products in glass bottles and jars plays three key roles:
- Protect the product from outside elements. Glass offers superior protection for oxygen sensitive products such as antioxidants or oils. While dark glass is the perfect barrier for those products that can be degraded by exposure to light.
- Protect product packaging from the product. Some fragrance products, such as perfumes and oils, contain solvents and formulas that weaken or dissolve plastic. As glass is impervious, it is superior to plastic for these types of products.
- Protect the product from the packaging. Some fragrance formulas can leach chemicals out of a plastic container, thus negatively affecting the product’s stability over time. With glass there is never leaching or product contamination.
