1. we use high-quality ingredients and 2. we minimize the use of solvents and fillers.
Quality ingredients cost more, and we prefer to use the best materials possible so we can make the best smelling/performing oils. To give you a point of reference, our most expensive ingredient costs over $80k per KG (more than gold).
A lot of companies 'cut' oils with cheap fillers and solvents (that have no smell) to reduce the overall cost of the fragrance, kind of like watering down a soup. We only use solvents if needed for performance or regulatory issues. This means our oils are more concentrated, reducing the amount of oil required for production :-)
