We started The Scent Company in 2006. We mainly focus on the import and distribution of niche perfumes, men shaving and scented candles. Our aim was to offer small international brand on the best and sometimes unexpected locations.
The Scent Company selected a range of young brands, with a modern image as well as established, more classical brands with a rich historical background. Because we thoroughly know the market, we are able to pick the more exclusive and special points of sale.
Robert & Liesbeth Helmer owners of The Scent Company
We are, Liesbeth Rameckers and Robert Helmer, owners of
The Scent Company. We met in 1985, while we were both working for the Levi Strauss Jeans Company in Amsterdam.
Robert was visual merchandiser in this world of intelligent marketing and modern franchise, Liesbeth was product manager and later product communication manager. Robert then branches out in the health food, homeopathy and phytotherapy field, and later he started importing perfume brands.
This satisfied his passion for beautiful fragrances, made from high quality natural ingredients.
With his nose for excellence and his personal style of doing business, his scent-portfolio grew and grew. These last years he has worked full-time introducing the rich scents of small European perfume houses to Belgium and Holland.
Liesbeth, after a long and varied career at Levi’s, became facility manager at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.
In 2008 she joined Robert in The Scent Company.
She conducts demonstrations at the sales locations, and introduces with pleasure and passion, these small, quirky, often family owned companies. She also organizes special customer days, introducing the products of these original brands.
Robert and Liesbeth travel to meet their suppliers in Italy, France, England and Spain.
They handle everything from their showroom in Amsterdam, back-office, to the ordering and expedition.
