We get asked many questions about our fragrances and products.
This is our attempt to answer some of the most popular questions for
Q: Can you make men’s fragrances? A: Absolutely.
Our blends can be used in fragrances for both sexes, so male, female
and unisex perfumes are all achievable.
Q: How many blends should I put in my fragrance? A: There
is no right answer. Some people opt for just one or two, others for
8+. The average number is between 4 and 8. That way, you end up
with something truly unique.
Q: Do I get an Eau de Toilette (EDT) or Eau de Parfam (EDP)?
A: You actually get neither. You get a 20+% extrait strength
perfume! EDTs typically have a perfume strength of 3%-8%, with EDPs
having a strength of 8%-15%. Therefore you are getting the best
quality possible at 20+% strength.
Q: Many high street fragrances smell differently on me. How
will I know how the fragrance will smell on me? A: The acidity
of an individual's skin can effect the way a fragrance smells on a
person. However, as our fragrance are much stronger (over 20% compared to
5% with Eau de Toilettes) skin acidity affects to far a lesser
Q: Is there a minimum or maximum number of people to have when
holding a perfume party? A: In a perfume party we can cope with
as many as you can accommodate. If you want a party for under 5
people there is a consultation charge per person – this is down to
the consultant if this is charged or not. If the party total is
larger than 12 it is possible that more than one consultant will
Q: How long does a perfume party last? A: This is
dependent on how many people are attending and how “chatty”
they are. As a general rule a party of 8 people can take up to 2
hours (this includes the perfumes being made up and given out). The
more people per consultant takes longer.
Q: How long do I have to wait for my perfume once I have
ordered at a party? A: Our aim is always to have each person
leave with their perfume on the night. On occasion this might not be
possible for everyone so the consultant will determine with the host
who is priority.
Q: Are your fragrances suitable for children ? A: Our
fragrances are suitable for children however anyone under the age of
13 we do ask for parental consent.
Q: How long will the perfume last on me ? A: Depending on the
composition it can be anywhere between 6 – 18 hours .
Q: How should I apply or wear my perfume. A: We recommend
to spray a mist in front of you and walk into it. Don't rub perfume
on, this breaks the sticky bonds and your perfume will not last as
long. For best results layer your fragrances by using bath or body
oils with similar fragrance, before applying your main perfume.
Q: Can I get a refill of my fragrance? A:
Definitely. We keep a
record of your composition in our files. You can contact us to get a
refill at any time.
Q: Can you re-create a brand perfume? A: Unfortunately
not. The recipes for perfumes are closely guarded secrets and to
re-create them would be very difficult. Even if were able to, there
is copyright on the branded ones. However if you come knowing what
you like, we can often advise elements that give you a similar
fragrance on which to base your custom design.
Q: I am pregnant, will that affect my judgement in making a
fragrance ? A: Yes is the short answer. You are likely to
“behave” in the same way to perfume as you do food and drinks.
Exactly the same to any fragrance you might come across.
Q: I am allergic to perfume but still want to create my own
signature fragrance. Can I? A: As our general rule we do not
recommend anyone with allergies to perfumes to participate in a
perfume making session. However if this is your desire you will need
to sign a disclaimer that you take responsibility and are
in agreement that you have been advised not to undertake this
Q: As I don’t wear perfume is there any point in me trying to
create a perfume of my own? A: Absolutely. The chances are that
you don’t like something particular in many popular high street
perfumes and this way you can be in charge of what goes in and what
is left out.
Q: Can I have my own branding (name) on the bottle? A: We
do not offer a branding service or your perfume name on the atomiser
or bottle. You could have it engraved by your local engraver, costs
are usually £10-£20.
