|Custom 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 and dissected by our expert perfumer, Eva DeMarchi. Samples are then also created by nose. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.|
Step 1: Place an order online, or over the phone, for your fragrance duplication. We ask that you provide the fragrance name, type of target sample to be provided, and any additional information that may help our perfumers hone in on the notes that you wish to be expressed in your fragrance duplication. This is a standalone service. Please do not add any other products, otherwise they will be removed from your order. Because of the custom 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.
Step 2: Send us your target for processing. An ideal target is at least .25 fluid ounces of a perfume, cologne, or fragrance oil that is freshly batched. We can also interpret candles, lotions, shampoos, and soaps, although results may vary due to the small percentage of fragrance used in these items. Please be sure to include your order number when shipping your target to us. If your fragrance is an exact match for a formula that we already carry, we will direct to this oil on our catalog and refund your duplication fee.

Step 3: When your target sample arrives at our facility, the order status will be updated to "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 "Duplication In Production". Our perfumers generally work on a fragrance for 1-10 business days, depending on the complexity of the target, and number of orders in the queue.
Step 4: Our entire perfume staff reviews each duplication to decide whether an approval sample (in the form of 100% fragrance oil) is ready to be 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". Along with the sample of the completed fragrance, a collection of the notes and accords that make up the finished product, will be included. We ask that you contact us as soon as possible with either your approval or any notes you may have for modification, referencing the labeled notes that are incorporated in your shipment. If you ask for any modifications, our staff will rework the formulation and reship you a new approval sample. Our goal is 100% satisfaction.
Step 5: The completed duplication will be added to our online catalog for ordering. Fragrances created via the duplication process may have a minimum order quantity of 1 lb (16 fl oz), once added to our catalog. This is dependent on the materials required for formulation, and we cannot determine when this minimum will be required before completion and approval of your custom duplication.
Exclusivity is available for a $200 once a year fee as well as a 10lb minimum per order, for customers who wish to maintain their own private fragrance creation.
