FAQs

A few things you ask us about ...

Where are your products made? We make our fragrance oil (or concentrate, as we call it) in a magical place in the hills above Grasse, in the south of France. We then bring this to our manufacturer in England, where it's mixed with our fermentation grade non-synthetic alcohol, bottled, and assembled into its packaging. It's a genuinely small-batch, artisan production. There's a lot of hands-on attention and genuine care and respect for the materials we work with.

Are your perfumes animal tested? That's a definite 'no.' We're a cruelty-free brand.

It's also for this reason that we don't and won't sell in certain countries - where they insist on animal testing.

Do your perfumes include animal products? Again, that's a 'no.'

I'm vegan, or vegetarian - can I wear your perfumes? Yes absolutely; our perfumes are vegan; we use no animal products or animal by-products. And we do not test on animals.

Are your products 'clean'? There are a lot of buzzwords around and many are ill-defined. We want to be honest and transparent in everything we do and have nothing to hide. So without getting too technical or jargon-y, here's a little explanation.

We don't use silicones, parabens, harsh sulfates (like SLS, SLES, ALS), ethanolamine, formaldehydes (or formaldehyde releasers), phthalates, PEGs, or chemical SPFs. So that would make our perfumes 'clean.'

The alchohol we use is a non-synthetic fermentation grade.

And while we're on the topic of buzzwords, we also work in an ethical and sustainable way (like paying our partners on time!) so it's not just about making ‘good’ products or marketing claims and labels, it's about behaving positively and with good manners.

Above all, we choose to work in a slow and thoughtful way.

 

What payments/cards do you accept?  We can accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express debit and credit cards.

Why don't you ship to my country? We're prevented from shipping fragrance to certain countries internationally, because of registration and import restrictions. Afraid there's not much we can do as a small business to get around that. We'd love to be able to ship to more!
