The importance of fragrance in men’s grooming – a conversation with Lisa Wilson

The men’s grooming category is growing and Cremo is growing faster than most. Cremo Products got its start in 2007 with a single shave cream and has since grown into a robust collection of men’s personal care and colognes (there’s women’s line too). In this video interview, fragrance expert Lisa Wilson shares insight into why scent may be a key factor in the brand’s success.

“For us it’s all about…taking a note or an accord and wrapping it in a way that makes it our own, that makes it unusual,”​ Lisa Wilson, principal at Scent&Strategy and in-house scent expert at Cremo Products, says, explaining the Cremo brand’s approach to scent.

“For instance, we just came out with a cooling body wash. And traditionally those body washes are so filled with menthol and overdosing on peppermint or spearmint, where that’s all you get. So we did something very new,” ​says Wilson, going on to describe a bit of the fragrance development process for the body wash: “We looked at the mint and we looked at citrus and we looked at green notes as sort of ozonics.”
