LMS Fragrances - Recognized By Pacific Coast Business Times as a 2009 Company of the Year
LMS Fragrances, Inc., the only direct selling company of luxury perfume in the U.S., was recently honored as a 2009 Company of the Year on the Pacific Coast Business Times' "Top 10 Companies to Watch" list.
The Pacific Coast Business Times Company of the Year distinction is part of its annual "101 One-Hundred" special report that ranks the top companies in Southern California's Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.
"It is a privilege to be given this award by the Pacific Coast Business Times," said Susan Suh, founder and president of LMS Fragrances, which offers its collection under the d'essense brand. "This distinction recognizes the dedication and entrepreneurial efforts of the 2,500 direct consultants selling d'essense products nationwide, and doing it the right way."
Susan and her husband Robert founded LMS Fragrances in 2004 with the goal to create a new model of business in the direct selling industry.
In less than five years, LMS Fragrances has built a team of about 2,500 independent consultants across the U.S. to sell its d'essense line of fragrance and beauty products direct to consumers. The company looks to double the number of consultants to 5,000 next year.
Part of what distinguishes LMS Fragrances from other direct selling businesses is that the company doesn't force consultants to buy inventory.
d'essense consultants do not have to pay for products out of pocket, and there are no monthly sales requirements. Instead, LMS makes sure that consultants immediately profit from their sales efforts by allowing them to keep upfront 30 percent of the money they make. It also has one of the most generous compensation plans in the direct selling industry.
The company's 80 fragrances are offered through its network of consultants at prices as much as 80 percent below similar perfumes sold in department stores.
The value that d'essense offers consumers lies in the company's commitment to making perfumes that contain 28 percent essential oils - among the highest concentration of fragrance in the perfume world. These same perfume fragrances are used to make d'essense body lotions, body washes, shea butter and candles.
The Pacific Coast Business Times distinguishes 10 companies headquartered in the Santa Barbara, Ventura, San Luis Obispo County region that have demonstrated significant growth potential in emerging industries.
Their recent success is seen by the editors of the Pacific Coast Business Times as putting them in a strong position to reach the paper's Top 100 list of the largest public and private companies in the region, based on revenue.
Alongside the honor by the Pacific Coast Business Times, Audra Strickland, Assemblywoman for the 37th District in the California State Assembly also awarded LMS Fragrances with a Certificate of Recognition.
