FRAGRANCE DEVELOPMENT DEPOSITFDD01
FRAGRANCE DEVELOPMENT WITH THE PERFUMER'S STUDIO
The Perfumer's Studio will use this deposit to pay for the samples we supply and the purchase of the fragrance compound on completion of a fragrance development project. If the project is abandoned, the remaining balance may be applied to anything offered by The Perfumer's Studio within three (3) months — classes, raw materials, bottles, etc. Deposits are non-refundable.
The Perfumer's Studio LLC does not perform work for hire. Fragrance development is done at our discretion, and acceptance of a project does not imply the transfer of proprietary processes or information.
To copy a perfume, we may need to research it using GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry). GC/MS will cost from $300 to $600 for the initial work. The Perfumer's Studio will consult you before we take this step.
Following accepting a project/brief, we will send you several small samples (+/- 7g each) in plain glass sample bottles. The cost of each sample ($10.00 for mixed media blends / $20.00 for all-natural blends) plus any shipping will be deducted from your account. There is no limit to the number of modifications you may request or samples we will make, but we will ask you to top up your account as and when needed.
Once a fragrance is approved, any remaining balance is applied toward purchasing the finished compound. Fragrance compounds are supplied neat and often need dilution to an appropriate strength for your application before use.
Projects must be completed within three (3) months from payment of this deposit, or any funds on balance will be forfeited.
The Perfumer's Studio and its partners use best manufacturing practices. In addition, we make every effort to follow appropriate safety guidelines based on the information you supply about your intended use.
As The Perfumer's Studio has no control over your labeling, processing, or final application, or how you use or misuse the product, it remains your responsibility to fully test the perfume in the end product for suitability, stability, safety, and strength.
No warranty is implied.
Payment of a deposit will act as proof of understanding and acceptance of the above terms. Please print these terms and conditions for your records.
