10 Perfume Affiliate Programs

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we will check out an interesting niche for affiliate marketers as we discuss my 10 perfume affiliate programs to entice the nostrils in 2020. Now the reason that I use the term interesting is that despite the fact that you would think it would be difficult to sell a product when one of its major factors cannot be experienced at the time of purchase (i.e. its fragrance), there is actually quite a decent market for it online. So with that, let’s see what we can find for affiliate marketers within this space.

Before we begin however, I am conscious that when it comes to perfumes, there are a number of different areas or sub niches to choose from hence the quantity of affiliate programs available may also be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term ‘perfume’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by perfume?

Ok, so what I am talking about here is those little bottles of natural and/or synthetic oils that give fragrances their scent with a carrier such as alcohol. There are many names for it, each determined by the concentration of perfume oils contained within the mix (I just learnt that.. pretty cool hey!), but they include:

  • Perfume
  • Eau de Parfum
  • Eau de Toilett
  • Eau de Cologne

And then we have other variations such as:

  • After Shave (often called one of the above)
  • Chemical free perfumes
  • Vegan perfumes

For this post, I am just going to stick to the word perfume in the main but will refer to the others as the programs we discuss dictate. So, if you are looking to make some money selling perfume online, let’s check them out below.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to perfume – especially as greater work may be required to explain their aromas. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over perfume affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get a nice bottle of the latest releases on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Purchasers of high end brand or designer label items and accessories will not take risks if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Those purchasing for a specific purpose will need to know details and why that particular fragrance will suit it – make sure your affiliate program is able to meet these requirements.
  4. Don’t underestimate the purchase power of the avid perfume collector – they will spend the dollars but will need to know exactly what they are getting.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on perfume online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are meeting their needs and solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

FragranceNet.com

Our first site, FragranceNet.com is a one-stop-shop fragrance site covering a large number of perfumes options including:

Arianrhod Aromatics

Perfume Affiliate Programs - Arianhodo Aromatics

To be honest, Arianrhod Aromatics is a site that is probably better distinguished as a natural beauty and fragrance site than a perfume one however there are a few there and after all, perfumes don’t always necessarily mean the spray we have discussed so far. So, what we have here then is a site offering a large range of 100% handcrafted pure and natural, synthetic free products across a number of categories. In terms of perfume, there is a good range of natural perfume oils as well as essential oils, chemical free deodorants and fragrance mists.

Perfume Affiliate Programs - Arianhodo Aromatics stripe

And as I mentioned it was not just about the fragrances, there are cross selling options aplenty including:

  • Facial products
  • Hair care
  • Hand and Body products
  • Pet shampoos
  • CBD/Hemp products

There may be enough here to base an affiliate business on if you are looking to cover the whole range of chemical free beauty products alternatively it would make a great addition if you are looking at smaller boutique, sustainable, vegan or big brand alternative perfume sites or the like as well.

Their range is not as large as some others but includes a number of perfumes for your furry little friends.

Amazon Associates

Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of perfume related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the best products relevant to your site within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon’s commission rates are not too bad and some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space especially as I could never even begin to cover perfume related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

Perfume Affiliate Programs - affiliate

There are perfume related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your cologne is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best perfume affiliate programs to entice the nostrils in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own perfume based affiliate marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share. Oh, and especially comment if you have any experience with these, or any other programs as well.

Until next time

Have fun
