Synthetic Fragrances Actual Costs

Here is an eye opening article by Daily Finance regarding the actual costs for a mainstream synthetic fragrance.


My natural fragrances have quite a different cost analysis.  The juice is much more expensive.  Real Bulgarian rose otto, tuberose, vintage jasmine, vintage Mysore sandalwood, boronia, osmanthus, mimosa, neroli, and oud are very expensive oils to use in perfume. 

My eau de toilettes contain 8% of the natural oils, the eau de parfums contain 16%, and the parfums contain 32% to 38% and the rest being organic grape alcohol or organic jojoba oil.  My 100% natural juice costs are in the range of $20.00 per bottle and higher.

The old adage...you get what you pay for.
