The Process

1. Inspiration

Upon purchase, we will contact you directly to discuss olfactive inspiration, intended use and desired oil budget.

2. Formulation

Once we have the information we need, we will begin formulating your fragrance. 

3. Evaluation

You will receive submissions in the form of 1 oz. oil samples to evaluate and use in your products. 

4. Production

Upon final approval, you will receive a personalized oil code and name. Order anytime!


The initial payment includes all aspects of development from start to finish:

  • Up to 3 unique concepts per fragrance
  • Up to 2 rounds of revisions/reworks
  • Domestic standard shipping of development samples directly to you
  • Customized oil naming and personalized product code
  • All safety and regulatory checks/documentation (IFRA, SDS, COA)

The initial payment excludes the following:

  • Oil purchases are separate and in addition to initial payment
  • Expedited/international shipping of development samples

We will contact you to obtain the information we need to start formulation work, so please make sure contact information is accurate and complete.

  • Target oil budget ($/LB)
  • Intended use and product categories (can be multiple)
  • Oil specifications or requirements (if needed), such as plant-based, biodegradable, etc.
  • Olfactive inspiration is optional, come with as much or as little as you like!

You do! We will determine the oil budget before we begin formulation work. If there is any discrepancy between the desired budget and the brief, we will let you know.

In general, the process typically takes 2-3 months to complete.

  • Once we have initial information, expect to receive the first round of submissions in 4-6 weeks
  • Take as much time as you need to experience and use the samples
  • Revisions (if needed) typically take 1-2 weeks to complete, after which we will resend samples to try

Once your formula has been approved, you can order anytime!

  • All Private Stock oils are made to order and require standard 2 week lead time, depending on material availability
