Wristwatches and other fashion accessories. While the new brand, @ScentWorld_ByDera is an online store where we sell Original Designer Perfumes, Undiluted Perfume Oils, Scented Candles, Aromatherapy Diffusers/Humidifier, Body Mist and Body Spray.
So with the money, I was able to expand the business, Trendycloset_bydera and launched this amazing Frangrance brand after I left the Young CEO Business Bub 2019.
Applying all the priceless lessons and business strategies I learnt from the hub, I am currently building Africa’s next biggest fashion and cosmetics empire by God’s grace.
