|GCMS Fragrance Duplication Service: |
Please review each step of this process below to be certain that this is the service you are interested in. Target Samples are analyzed locally by our contract lab partner. Samples analyzed by this method are run through a gas chromatograph mass spectrometer and then formulated based on the resulting material list. Due to the technical nature of this process, we have specific target sample and minimum ordering requirements, which can be found below.
Step 1: Place an order online, or over the phone, for your GCMS Fragrance Duplication. We ask that you provide the target fragrance name and the date that you aquired first aquired this target sample in the spaces provided on this page, prior to adding this service to your cart.
Step 2: A Fragrance Duplication Target kit will be shipped to the address you provide during checkout. This kit includes a .5 fl oz bottle to pour or spray your sample into, and a prepaid shipping box to return your sample to us. Send us your target for processing. A target must be at least .33 fluid ounces of a perfume, cologne, or fragrance oil that is freshly batched. To achieve the best possible results, samples should be as freshly made as possible. Chemicals change and evaporate over time, so an older target will not neccesarily duplicate well. While the GCMS may read out the correct materials contained in the target sample, a fresh batch may smell different than an older target which will have matured and changed over time.
Step 3: When your target sample arrives at our facility, the order status will be updated to " GCMS Target Received - Queued". Duplications are started in the order they are received. It can take from 1-3 weeks before work begins on your duplication, based on our current order volume. Once work begins, your order status will be changed to "GCMS Duplication In Production". Our lab will generally work on a fragrance for 1-10 business days, depending on the complexity of the target and the materials required for formulation.
Step 4: An approval sample is formulated (in the form of fragrance oil), and shipped back to you via USPS First Class Mail. Once shipped back to you for approval, the status of your order will be updated to "Duplication Approval Sample Shipped". We ask that you contact us as soon as possible with your approval.
Step 5: The completed GCMS Duplication will be added to our online catalog for ordering. Fragrances created via the GCMS Duplication process will have a first order minimum volume 10 lbs in the concentration of your choice. After this intial order, the fragrance will then be made available to order in smaller sizes. The price of the oil will be set based on the materials required for formulation, though we will always attempt to price as affordably as possible.
This is a standalone service. Please do not add any other products, otherwise they will be removed from your order. Because of the nature of this service, the process may take a few weeks from start to finish, so any additional items would be held up -- they need to go on a separate order. Please contact us if time is of the essence.
