Sephora Debuts the Scentsa® Fragrance Finder

News Image
With this groundbreaking program, our clients will be able to quickly and easily locate a fragrance favorite or discover a new one.

Sephora is pleased to announce the introduction of an innovative new device to select stores that will take the guesswork out of finding a new scent or an old favorite, the Scentsa® Fragrance Finder. A state-of-the-art custom program developed especially for Sephora stores, Scentsa is the brainchild of Jan Moran, noted fragrance expert and author of the ''Fabulous Fragrances'' book series.

"Scentsa will revolutionize the way we traditionally think about finding a fragrance," said Betsy Olum, Sephora's Senior Vice President of Marketing. "With this groundbreaking program, our clients will be able to quickly and easily locate a fragrance favorite or discover a new one."

Utilizing award-winning (Cisco Growing With Technology and the Stevie Award for Entrepreneurs), touch-screen technology that runs at lightning speed, the interactive wall-mounted screen found in the fragrance area is a useful tool for not only Sephora's fragrance experts but also for customer "play". With the simple tap of a finger on the large-screen display, users can easily navigate the program to find detailed information on the latest fragrances, discover fragrances from the same fragrance family, view images, run videos or find thousands of reviews on a time-honored favorite from around the world; all with cutting-edge clarity. Scentsa allows shoppers to search by:

  • Brand Name
  • Fragrance Name
  • Fragrances Notes
  • Best Sellers

Winner of a FiFi Award for Technological Innovation from The Fragrance Foundation, Scentsa creator Jan Moran comments: "Very simply, Scentsa makes sense of fragrance. It's easy and fun, and makes anyone an instant expert. In addition, Scentsa offers opportunities for fragrance vendors to showcase their fragrances."

This innovative technology rolls out to Sephora locations in New York City (42nd & Madison, 711 Lexington, 150 Broadway, Flatiron, Times Square), Chicago (Northbridge), Las Vegas (Miracle Mile, Venetian), Orlando (Florida Mall), Dallas (Northpark), Atlanta (Lenox Square), Honolulu (Ala Moana), Massachusetts (Burlington), California (Powell Street, South Coast Plaza, Fresno), New Jersey (Garden State, Short Hills), and Washington, DC (Tyson's Corner, Georgetown).
