A Day in the Life of a Fragrance Buyer


Grace is the lovely and very talented fragrance buyer for QVC, based at our HQ in Chiswick Park, West London. We thought we’d ask her a bit about what her role involves, and find out what her result in our stylish new Fragrance Quiz was. Read on to find out that and more!

I currently finish my beauty routine with a spritz ofEllenisia by Penhaligons. I love the mix of floral and fruity for the daytime. The bottle also looks so pretty on my dressing table, I love using fragrance bottles as decoration.

When I get to the office I’m responsible for… looking after the Lifestyle category. This includes fragrance, bath and body and suncare.

My typical day consists of… meetings with my brands and doing sales analysis so that we can quickly react to what our customer likes. It’s very fast-paced here at QVC as we have live TV deadlines! No day is ever the same.

The best part of my job…is seeing new and exciting products and bringing them to the customer.

After work I… rush home to collect my 2 year old son from nursery, cook dinner, tidy up and then relax to a box set. I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones at the moment.

 My fragrance obsession began with… my Mum’s bottle of Chanel No.5. My Mum always saved it for a special occasion so it has always felt very special to me. Memory and fragrance are so closely linked, I think that’s why people become so attached to their signature scent.

 My fragrance quiz result was… citrus! My fragrance mood changes daily. I like uplifting citrus or floral scents for the day and spicy orientals at night-time. I like to switch up what I use quite a bit, mainly because I’m also coming across terrific new fragrances through work.
