Terms and Conditions

Thank you for choosing materials from our selection. For your information, clarity and safety please read the following important notes carefully and confirm your acceptance before completing your order details.


PerfumersWorld has supplied the information on materials and use in good faith but cannot guarantee their suitability for any application or use.

While aroma materials are generally safe in normal use and no more dangerous or toxic than many household products and cleaners, they are highly concentrated and therefore should be kept out of the reach of young children and used only by persons able to understand and comply with the instructions and safety notes. They are offered as raw materials and intermediates for study, not as consumer products and may not contain the labelling required by local regulations. It is the user's responsibility to add labelling to comply with such requirements. Never use them as flavorings or in any food products. Aroma materials are flammable and should never be exposed to sources of open flame or high temperatures. This is especially true if you use alcohol in your blends.

Educational supplies such as the kits and small amounts of materials do not normally attract customs duty but as we have no control of each country's policy or the whims of individual customs officers, it is the customers responsibility to settle any local taxes, VAT, sales taxes, duties and other costs incurred.

Bulk orders will generally attract customs duties, so please check with your local Customs and Excise Department for what charges are likely to be imposed.

End application data applies to experiments carried out by the authors or extrapolated from those experiments. As specific end application product formulations vary widely they should only be taken as a general guide. Full shelf testing by both perfumers, flavourists and users is the only proven method to ensuring a perfume or flavour's safety, strength, suitability, stability and success. Users understand and agree that it is their own responsibility to check the validity and safety of any products that they manufacture, especially in relation to local laws and customs.

You agree that in no event shall PerfumersWorld be held liable for any damages including, without limitation, injury, loss or damages, arising out of the use or inability to use the information, software or materials, even if PerfumersWorld has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

PerfumersWorld offers the information and training with care but has no control over how the information will be used or misused. PerfumersWorld makes the offer of the contents of the website and perfumery training course "The Art and Technology of Perfumery" with no guarantee of any kind. Students may use the information from the course for their own personal development but the copyright remains with PerfumersWorld or the contributors of articles therein. The student agrees that he will not pass any part of the course to ANY third party or company, nor sell or offer for sale the contents therein.

PerfumersWorld has the right to refuse any applicant or group of applicants to receive training, materials or software. PerfumersWorld will not discriminate between applicants based on race, colour or language, however users must understand that the language of the course is English and PerfumersWorld makes no representations about translations into other languages.

Information supplied by applicants will never be revealed to any third party outside of the PerfumersWorld organisation except with the express permission of the students.
