Fresh from seeing ‘The Equalizer 2’ at the iMax in Lekki, the whole team was buzzing. We were all Robert McCall’s and shared Denzel’s philosophy that – ‘the most selfish thing you can do is to help another person’. Quite frankly, not everyone will appreciate this beautiful philosophy like perfumers and those who are always completely dressed with the right scent (people who understand that perfume is the invisible crown on their royalty). It’s obvious that we are selfish and always look forward to the heroic feeling of inducing sensual happiness for our customers.
For instance, a few days ago, our phone rang – an Abuja customer was in need of a Creed Aventus for himself and a little help on picking the best perfume gift for his wife on their 25th wedding anniversary? … Here we go!
At the office, we have a little chat about the best perfume for silver jubilee celebrations, the options seem inexhaustible – Aventus For Her, Guerlain Santal Royal, Bloom Acqua Di Fiori, Coco Mademoiselle, Roberto Cavalli Florence, or Prada Candy Pop Sugar???
Standing before our perfume shelves of awesomeness, it’s decision time!
And finally, we reach a consensus on the bottle for the elegant and sophisticated woman who lives her life as an art form – transcending the time, place and culture which she inhabits… The ‘Amouage Jubilation 25’ will be great!
So we pack the ‘Creed Aventus’ and ‘Amouage Jubilation 25’, and the sales manager rings our prospects from the capital. Clearly, the customer is delighted we have such great collection of scents because he’s been asking about. But he wants guarantees that our products are original and genuine brands?
Sales Manager: Yes Sir, all our perfumes are 100% original and authentic. All our products are genuine brand name fragrances. No imitations, No knock-offs. We have been online since 2014, and in business since 2010 working directly global suppliers and wholesalers of designer perfume brands.
And how long will it take to get my bottle of perfumes in Abuja?
Sales Manager: A maximum of two (2) days Sir. We use GIG Logistics to deliver your perfumes to Abuja. And you can choose to pay on delivery or pay online on our website pre-delivery, whichever works best for you. The same delivery time applies to every city where ‘God is Good’ Logistics is available including Port Harcourt, Calabar, Enugu, Uyo, Kano, Kaduna etc.
Satisfied, the gentleman whispers some inaudible words to his wife, before handing her the phone. She ventures to asks us of the most popular questions we get from customers:
why one and the same perfume smells differently on different people?
Sales Manager: … Thank you for the interesting question, you are one of the very few people with a keen sense of discovery that noticed this mystery. However the simple answer is because the skin is different, and technically scents are made up of smells called notes. Each fragrance is made up of three notes – top note, medium note and base note. Now each person’s body chemistry affects how different notes react on their skin. And so anything that affects the ‘natural’ smell of your skin, such as medication, stress, hormonal imbalance, current diet etc. may change how a perfume smells on you.

Fifteen minutes later, a bottle of Creed Aventus and Amouage Jubilation 25 are delivered to the logistics company for same day delivery to the customer in Abuja.
Justice is served, another bottle leaves the shelf and we spread our fragrant goodness to Abuja.
PS: Happy Silver Jubilee to Mr. and Mrs. (You Know Who:)
