Alpha Aromatics Vice President Featured in Leading Cosmetics Magazine

Roger Howell, Vice President of U.S. fragrance manufacturer Alpha Aromatics, recently contributed an article to NutraCos Cosmetics magazine. The article, entitled “Five Questions to Ask When Creating a Custom Fragrance for Your Personal Care Brand,” discusses the importance of knowing your customer demographics so that companies can create scented products in what has become a billion-dollar industry.

In this article, Mr. Howell discusses the impact that a thoughtfully produced scent can generate for your company, brand, or product: “The scent that you choose for your product is a crucial part of what makes a product desirable . . . . I help [companies] discover what fragrance will be most attractive to their current and potential customers,” he writes.
