A minimum charge of $250.00 per fragrance plus the cost of the fragrance oil(s), to test the fragrance, is required in order for us to present up to three versions of the target scent. Please note, we do not guarantee to match other fragrances in the marketplace.
Each program is created based on the client's budget and desired retail price point. We will guide you through the options to help you meet your goal.
