Case Study

Hi, my name is Rafael Hernandez and I am the founder of Alfred Lane. I have a line of personal and home fragrances handcrafted in small batches out of our Miami studio. I began selling solid colognes initially as an alternative to spray colognes and released three fragrances.

The business generates $19k a month in revenue. In 2020, the company had its best year ever. I opened a production studio where we make everything and hired a studio assistant all within the last 5 months. It’s been more than 8 years since I started and the journey has been a wild one.


3. Alfred Lane

Alfred Lane is a line of fragrances featuring personal care products and home goods — striving to elevate the essence of gentlemen everywhere. We handcraft solid colognes, roll-on cologne, incense cones and candles in small batches using quality ingredients. Our goods are made in the USA.

  • Estimated revenue: $19K/month
