The Fragrance Foundation To Offer Advanced Certification

April 3, 2008

The Fragrance Foundation has created an Advanced Certification Program for Fragrance Sales Specialists (ACFSS). This course will provide existing Certified Fragrance Sales Specialists (CFSS) with an opportunity to expand their credentials in the fragrance and beauty industry. The advanced course is available online through May 31.

The new program requires sales specialists to use their nose as well as their mind. The content focuses on fragrance families and notes with an interactive smelling component.

Each sales specialist is supplied with a fragrance kit, which includes the fragrance materials and commercial fragrances mentioned in the content.

In order to be qualified to take the exam, a sales specialist must have successfully completed the CFSS Program, hold a current CFSS Certification, have worked for at least one year in the fragrance industry since receiving the CFSS designation and have the support/recommendation of a current supervisor or training director.

A sales specialist must score at least 75 to pass the exam and achieve advanced certification. Those who pass receive a pin designating the advanced achievement as well as a certificate.
