Frequently Asked Questions
What is the type of perfume and how long should it last?
Our Selective range of Perfumes are Eu De Parfum with 15% – 20% essence concentrate.
Our Niche range of perfumes are Extrait de Parfum with 25-30% essence concentrate.
How long a perfume lasts is based partially by its essence concentration but more importantly its top and base notes and chemical composition. Floral (sweet) and Summery (fresh) scents are found to naturally be least lasting up to 6-8 hours, while other scents with Fougere, Woody, Oriental notes and composition can last hours on end after a single spritz and not uncommon to last up to 24 hours.

What are inspired by perfumes?
These are our own formulation of perfumes, inspired by famous brands. They are not identical but our own take on the scent, with changes in ingredients and scents. Using quality essences, with affordable bottles and packaging, we are able to provide our scents at a fraction of the cost.
Are your perfumes safe to wear?
It is very difficult to predict allergic reactions in individuals to specific oils/ingredients or ingredient combination. If you have any allergies, to make sure it is safe try small amounts on a area of skin. If any allergic reactions are developed, cease use of perfumes.
What is the difference between a selective or niche perfume?
Our selective range comes in 50ml bottles and comprises of commonly used scents. They generally have essences and ingredients that are readily available. Niche perfumes are generally inspired by fragrances that have been designed by companies dedicated to perfumes, and contain ingredients that are sometimes difficult to source, and are heavily reliant of the seasonal harvest (flowers etc.) to be produced.
Why does the same perfume smell different on other people?
Each person has a unique skin composition. Perfume and how the notes react with your skin chemistry will affect the overall scent. This reaction is affected by the pH level and how oily/dry your skin is, your hormone level, your resting temperature and even your hormone levels or diet. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and it is very complex, which can give you a unique scent, differing from other people.
