Fine Fragrance partners with KCS for enhanced stock management and reporting

In 2014 two friends, Simon and Grant, decided to launch a website to wholesale and retail generic designer perfume. By challenging convention and not following perfume pricing monopolies, they established a price point suited to their market, and the business gradually started to grow. Over the years they expanded into retail stores, kiosks, and eventually a shared warehouse.

COVID-19 presented its own challenges for the business in terms of product distribution and sales, but like entrepreneurs are often required to do, Simon and Grant retained their innovative thinking. An additional price drop and a pop-up sale in a shopping center, helped to carry the business and expose them to new market audiences. Currently, Fine Fragrance stocks a range of 20 men’s’ and 20 ladies’ fragrances. They have 27 shops and kiosks in the major provinces, and deliver throughout South Africa.

In previous years, Fine Fragrance didn’t have an ERP solution in place, and they were introduced to the KCS team through an acquaintance. They required a functional solution that could support a wide area network of stores, matched their budget, has a POS functionality, and Head Office module. Because of the extensive network they manage, keeping record of all business activities is also crucial.

Benefits of the KCS Retail solution, that Fine Fragrance enjoys:

  • Great functionality, within the company’s budget.
  • Improved performance of warehousing and inventory management.
  • Enhanced stock control at central and store-level.
  • Increased profit margins, due to improved processes.
  • Extensive reporting functionality, which provides total visibility of overall business performance.

The KCS team wishes to thank Fine Fragrance for the great partnership, and we look forward to many years of collaboration and growth for their business.


Our experience working with KCS has been absolutely amazing. Every step is done timeously, we are kept informed, and it doesn’t cost us an arm and a leg. Keep up the good work.

- Simon Martiz, Owner and Founder
