We created this page to explain you in details how we will work together on development of the future perfume brand as private label. Plenty of clients stressed about this process of creation and ask us so many questions, so here you will find peace and hapiness, to make your perfumes project a big success.

1/ Use our perfume questionnaire:

B/ Join files and pictures or drawings to your email:

You can join to your email pictures of type of packaging you look for, the style is important, does it a standard European box with simple holder inside or do you wish a hard box or wood box, leather on it, silk inside, details are important for us to estimate your project.

C/ Type of  bottles with molder investment or not :

The important topic also is if your bottle is unique then you need to invest in your own molder or do you wish to use a standard bottle that we will customized with your brand name.

Note that if you need to create your own molder the minimum quantity will be 25000 bottles and you will pay the extra costs of the special tool created.

Note that if you use standard bottles you could have only one palet of glass to buy, approx.

  • In 100 ml = 3000 bottles
