It has recorded SAR300+ million in revenues from KSA alone.

Golden Scent’s ongoing success has been strengthened by its highly engaged customers, due to the high level of brand trust and loyalty. The brand enjoys 40% market share in the region.

The company is now poised for breakaway growth in the coming three years capitalising on its decade-long success. What’s more, Golden Scent has recently raised funding to fuel its ambitious growth.
