We are located in the wonderful city of Cartersville, GA, about an hour North of Atlanta. Our facility is conveniently reached via I-75 North and Hwy-20 SE.
Although there are over 4,000 listings on our webstore, we actually produce over 30,000 different fragrances. Many of these fragrances feature the same scent, but are unique in their formula, color, and specifications as per the individual customer’s needs. It’s easy to find and order a fragrance on our webstore, but if you’d like a duplication or custom fragrance, don’t hesitate to reach out to customer service to start a new project!
We accept all major US cards (Visa, American Express, Discover, Master Card), checks, ACH, Paypal, Sezzle, and Amazon pay. Paypal installments, Sezzle, and Amazon Pay are only available through webstore purchases and are subject to credit approval. Checks must be cleared before your order is processed, and must be mailed in. Checks are to be mailed to PO Box 1263 Cartersville GA 30120. Payments can also be made over the phone or via email.
IFRA, short for the International Fragrance Regulatory Association, is the largest regulatory body in the Fragrance industry. They work alongside RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials) to create safe standards for the use of fragrance. IFRA helps set the guidelines for usage limits of each of our fragrances, which can be found in a document on each web store listing.
All fragrance documentation can be found on their respective web store listings!
Yes! Our R&D department can extract and duplicate any fragrance formula as is or reformulate it as needed. We require at LEAST a 1 ounce sample of the fragrance oil you want to be duplicated, but the more you have, the better. If you would like to duplicate the scent of an existing product, check the question below. Please contact one of our helpful customer service representatives for more information and help getting started with your project.
Because finished products often contain less than half an ounce of fragrance and much of it is lost during the extraction process, it’s important that you send in enough of the product so our R&D specialists can obtain an adequate amount for duplication. Please refer to the chart below to determine how much of the finished product you will need to send in. Remember, the more you provide us with, the easier it will be to extract and duplicate!

|3 to 4 Whole Bars > 4.5 oz. Each

All of our fragrances are straight with no extra carrier oils or solvents beyond what is needed to create the compound. You can smell how strong they are straight from the bottle!
We stock both natural and synthetic raw materials to use in our fragrances. Through years of testing and development, we have found that a combination of synthetics and naturals creates a superior product, as both offer unique facets. Synthetic raw materials allow us to create affordable fragrances, safe alternatives to otherwise harmful natural compounds, and fun fantasy scents that cannot be found in nature. Likewise, natural raw materials offer a true to life characteristic that many appreciate. Regardless of origin, the materials we use in our fragrances have been lab tested and proven to be safe for use in their desired applications. See below if you want an all natural fragrance.
Yes, we do offer a variety of high quality, pure essential oils. That being said, they are often priced much higher than our partially natural varieties. For example, natural lavender essential oil is about $92 per pound (when purchased at a minimum of 10lbs), whereas our most affordable synthetic lavender fragrance oil is about $16.50 (when purchased at a minimum of 10lbs). If you would like fragrances that are phthalate and prop 65 ingredient free, you can use our webstore’s handy search filters!
Although we do offer some water soluble fragrances that have been pre-blended with a surfactant for ease of use, the vast majority of our fragrances are non-soluble in water (as they are oil based). We are happy to make a custom water soluble version of any of our fragrances for you though!
We understand that there has been a great push for transparency in the fragrance industry. As such, we have a line of fragrances free of any ingredients that many consider to be unsafe in one way or another. Although we have always taken great care to ensure our fragrances are perfectly safe to handle and use in your products, we want to provide scents to customers who are wary of certain ingredients to use with confidence.

Some of the raw materials we use to make fragrance are solid. They often come in the form of white crystals. When our fragrances are compound, the crystals are melted down into the rest of the raw materials. Sometimes, if the fragrance gets cold enough during shipment, the crystals can resolidify, leaving you with little crystal growths within your fragrance. While we do our best to prevent this, there are factors we cannot control in shipment. It can be easily fixed by warming your fragrance in a hot water bath.
The majority of our fragrances are oil based, meaning they will not blend into water based products without a surfactant or emulsifier. If you make water based products, such as air fresheners, the fragrance will separate out of them. To fix this, simply combine the fragrance with an emulsifier or use one of our water based fragrances!
We ensure that our fragrances are made with rigorous quality control and usage standards. If all usage limits are followed as per IFRA documentation, fragrances will not cause rashes or allergic reactions. Please be sure to review all documentation for any fragrances you purchase.

We strive to exceed your expectations with our fragrances, so please reach out to us if you have any concerns with your order whatsoever!
