In this article we will try our best to answer to questions about our fragrances and production methods not covered in our FAQs page. As our FAQs section is getting bigger and bigger, we thought, for the sake of readability, to stop adding more questions to that page and to address more thoroughly to some of them. This post will allow us more space to further explain quite a few fragrance related queries.
Do you make your own fragrances?
We are perfumers and every fragrance we sell is a product of our own creation. We are sourcing all fragrance compounds from the most prestigious olfactory manufacturers in Europe.
Are your fragrances actually made in Europe?
This is a question that underlies some country bias, racial misconceptions and lack of knowledge. The short answer is yes, we source our primary ingredients from all over Europe as it is a) cheaper, b) more reliable time-wise, and c) more convenient as we are based in Greece. Should we had the chance or capacity to trade with Asian markets we would do it in a blink. The reason is simple: They are far superior that European fragrances! Alas, custom fees and transportation costs are forbidding us to do so.
Can I visit your store to smell your products?
Sorry, we do not have a physical store. All our fragrances are made per order in our laboratory in Thessaloniki. There are no finished products as everything is assembled once an order arrives to keep things as regulated as possible.
Why are the shipping costs so damn high?
We are a B2B company servicing also individuals. Large retail stores with hundreds of daily orders are able to negotiate with carriers for super low fees plus subsidizing half of them. In fact, one of our main competitors from the UK, who recently opened logistics operations in the EU to service their european customers customs-free, has double – if not triple the shipping costs.
Can you send me your online catalogue?
Our catalogue and complete price breakdown in all available sizes is already online here on our website!
Can you send me smelling strips to test your fragrances?
Really? You are asking for a wholesale manufacturer to send you smelling strips?
I want to order 37813561 sample bottles of 25g can I get a discount?
No, because all fragrances are handled per order and include not only the fragrances themselves but the cost of the bottles, packaging and all the labor that goes into pouring individually into 37813561 bottles – a fact that everyone chooses to overlook.
We will be adding more in-depth answers to your fragrance related queries in the future. In the meantime, you can read the benefits for choosing us for your fragrance creations!
