How long does this entire process take?

It’s important to keep a time frame in mind for launching your perfume line. We’ve got the process down to make your perfume launch as quick and easy as possible. The creation for your first perfume sample will take 2-3 weeks, our perfumers have the experience and state-of-the-art tools available from gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, distillation, headspace analysis and quality control technology. Once the perfume is finalized, it is left for maceration for 45 days. This is an important step as the perfume needs to be settled down with it's alcohol and ingredients before it is poured into bottles. Then we follow up on the bottle and box decoration and assembling everything together. The entire process takes 4-6 months to have your own finished product in hand, and can take as short as 3 months if you would like to use one of our creations as your own.
