Market for Home Fragrances Booms; Eighty Percent of Americans Buy Products to Make Their Homes Smell Good
The market for home fragrance products,including candles and candle accessories, sprays, plugs-ins, room fresheners, potpourris, air fresheners, air purifiers and more, reached $8.3 billion in 2004, rising 14.1 percent over sales of $7.3 billion in 2003.
"Scented candles continue to be the first choice for home fragrance, but the expanding range of other home fragrance products, including electric plug-ins, diffusers, scent disks, sprays, potpourris, incense and bed linens sprays, are rapidly growing the overall market," explains Pam Danziger, author of Let Them Eat Cake: Marketing Luxury to the Masses -- as well as the Classes.
"The most profound shift that has occurred in the consumer market is that having a pleasant smelling home is not just for special occasions anymore. People expect their entire homes to be nicely fragranced everyday. Thus buying and using home fragrance products which used to be an occasional luxury is becoming an everyday necessity for more Americans," Danziger says.
Trends for growth in 2005-2006 are especially strong for home fragrance products.
