Custom Signature Perfume Creation
If you require a very special fragrance we highly recommend you developing your own unique blend. To make this achievable we have developed the 7-Step Custom Creation Sets which can be integrated with essential oils and other aroma materials, which PerfumersWorld can supply. This taken in conjunction with a training course in "The Art and Technology of Perfumery" is the most cost effective method of ensuring that your fragrance is unique and to your own requirements. You stay in control. Check the website or links below in FAQ's.
If you still feel that you would like a professional perfumer to develop your unique perfume then we do offer this service but it is not cheap. You can, of course, approach perfumery houses who will supply initial samples free of charge but we do not offer this service. Check the end of this email for frequently asked questions.
1st Step : Completion of a Perfume Enquiry form - we have included it as a simple text file below for you to edit, copy and paste onto an email but it is available in other formats if required. You will note that you can specify the quality required in terms of cost per Kilogram and the desired product of application. If you require the perfume compound for use in a consumer product we advise you to supply as much data as you can about the end product. We may ask you to send an un-perfumed sample of the product for testing.
2nd Step : After studying your enquiry and agreeing to take on your project. We ask you to show your commitment to the project by opening an account with us with a non-refundable deposit of US$600.00 per fragrance. This deposit is used to charge samples supplied and may be used towards the purchase of supplies of the fragrance upon completion. In the event that the project is stopped the remaining balance may be used towards other purchases (any products or courses etc.) or transfered to part payment of another project. It is not refundable.
3rd Step : We start development of your project. If your project requires the copying of an existing perfume such as an old perfume or concentrate that is no longer available then we require about 5cc of it, if the product is a functional product such as a soap or shampoo then we require 200-500cc. In order to copy your perfume we may need to research it using GCMS (Gas-Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) and this will cost around $300 to $600 for the initial work. If we already have something similar then we let you see those samples before commissioning a GCMS report. Initially we send you around 5 samples (Nominal 7g samples) in plain glass sample bottles. Each sample supplied is charged to your account at $30.00 each, including guaranteed delivery. There is no limit to how many modifications or samples you request but we will ask you to top up your account as necessary.
1) The project must be completed within 6 months after which any remaining balance may be used for the perfume selected or other PerfumersWorld products or services.
2) We do not release the formula to you with this service but will supply all relevant documentation required for cosmetic and labeling requirements. We guarantee that the final chosen formula will only ever be used for you and your projects.

Q. Where can I get I more information about courses in "THE ART AND TECHNOLOGY OF PERFUMERY"?
A. You can access the details via link: https://www.perfumersworld.com/perfumery-school
Q. Why does PerfumersWorld charge for samples when many companies will give me free samples?
A. You will find many perfumery companies will supply samples free of charge to businesses, but there are a some catches;
1) generally these will be selected from previously made samples and unless you are buying in 1,000's of kilograms per month they will be samples that have also been offered to other clients.
2) If you do not quickly select and buy then you will probably find that support for samples falls off or stops completely. There may also be minimum orders when you buy.
PerfumersWorld by charging for samples, gives you no pressure to select or buy, we don't require that you are a business, you can ask for modifications ad infinitum and we will continue to supply samples and modify them for as long as you like. PerfumersWorld does not have minimum orders and we have customers that buy in 10 grams lots and we have customers that buy in 1,000 Kg lots.
Q. What does the US$30.00 charge for each sample cover?
A. The charge includes the cost of the materials used, packing and shipping. It takes about 2 hours on average in time to prepare a formula, mix the sample(which will typically contain between 20 and 80 raw materials), and check it. We may make more than 1 sample before sending you yours. Compare this to your hourly wage rate and we think you will find this is very reasonable.
Q. What will PerfumersWorld tell me about the formula?
A. If you ask we will list the natural materials used in the formulation and the total percentage of naturals used. We can tell you if it conforms to IFRA guidelines or it if contains specific materials. Note you can stipulate 100% natural formulations, in fact although we don't shout about aromatherapy, 60%+ of our formulations are completely natural blends that we supply to Spas and Aromatherapy outlets. Note natural blends will generally be more expensive and may have more stability problems if you require your perfume for use in a product such as soap or shampoo.
