About Perfume Worldwide

After a few months of employment, they decided to focus the marketing efforts under a new specific department that they named Patina Brands. I mainly worked under this department.

I started as an all-around advertiser from ecommerce and marketplace publicity to social media. As the team grew, I focused on Amazon and Walmart, supervising a portfolio of about 100 brands.
