We have reached a point where practically anything can be purchased using cryptocurrency, even perfume. Just announced, luxury Benigna Parfums will begin accepting crypto as a valid payment method for its online orders. The perfume brand is most popular for its gender-neutral high-quality, floral fragrances and timeless crystal bottles with 24K gold plating.
The brand understands the current market and is working towards catching the attention of customers worldwide, through this new currency approach.
“The brand simply could not continue to ignore the changes that are taking place in how people use and view money, especially when we consider the preferences of our forward-thinking, international clientele,” expressed Benigna Parfums Founder and Creative Director Benigna Ajuogu. “If they are attracted to Benigna Parfums, it is because of its innovation, as well as its aesthetics. The reality is that many online luxury consumers actually would prefer to use cryptocurrency, and we need to accommodate them.”
