Freemium mobile application for perfume users with built-in recommendation service based on a consistent customer experience dataset. Via our mobile application, we answer what scent, where, and when to wear.
When we have enough data on emerging trends and user preferences, we will launch the B2B SaaS to benefit our business customers. Our solution will help save resources and shorten the path to the end-user.
