Spice Girls. Backstreet Boys. Grunge. iMac Computer. Pagers. Harem pants. Furby. These are just some words we immediately associate with the 1990s, the last decade before the big millennium boom. Some 90s kids would call it the last good decade to be a kid. Yes, there were computers but kids still played outside. Others loved the decade for what it represented: the changing of the world.
We bet that some of the scents your customers seek for in your perfume business is something that also brings back memories from this brilliant decade of music, revolutionary tech and modernism. Check out the top three fragrances that best represent the 90s.
