    Thumbs up DIY Suppliers List ------Editing in progress 12/2013

    Suppliers of Perfumery Raw Materials (updated January 27, 2012):

    Provisional update starting 29 November, 2013.
    lpp

    If looking for a specific ingredient not stocked by these sources, a Google search may be helpful if members here are unable to suggest any.

    Aftelier Perfumes - Variable selection of perfumery materials. U.S.A.

    Aqua Oleum - U.K. supplier of Essential oils

    Camden Grey Supplier of essential oils and other natural materials, fragrance oils, soapmaking supplies and such. They're on the East Coast, so I've never ordered from them, and therefore can't speak to the quality of their products. Nearly all of their products have a big disclaimer saying they can't ship by "air or ocean", so I assume that means no international shipping.

    De Heskerij - Holland - Supplier of perfumery raw materials.
    Dutch main
    page
    English main page

    Eden Botanicals
    Supplier of essential oils, absolutes, resins, CO2 extracts, etc. in small or large sizes. Good selection, good quality, easy ordering system, no minimum order. Ship internationally.

    Essential Oil University Supplier of essential oils, including a few items that are difficult to find elsewhere, but have changed their name to "The Perfumery" and now sell only to registered businesses, with a large yearly minimum purchase. The quality of their products is good, shipping costs are very reasonable, and some of their prices are competitive, but they are no longer accessible to the hobby perfume maker. However, if you previously had an account with them when they were EOU, you can still log in using that account info and will be grandfathered in at a lower yearly minimum purchase (still high for people who do not buy in bulk).

    Hermitage Oils U.K. Supplier of Absolute Oils, Essential Oils, CO2 Extracts, Artisan Perfumery Materials. Overseas shipping.



    Name - Hermitage Oils Australia
    Website - http://hermitageoilsaustralia.com
    Suppliers for Australia and New Zealand


    Liberty Natural Supplier of essential oils, absolutes, resins, CO2 extracts, etc. in small or large amounts. They have an excellent selection and their products seem to be of uniformly good to high quality. Their ordering system used to be cumbersome, but has recently been greatly improved. Minimum order is $50 in US, $100 internationally.

    Mountain Rose Herbs Organic essential oils, bulk herbs, tea, spices, cosmetic ingredients. As far as I can see there is no minimum order. I have not ordered from them, so cannot vouch for them one way or the other. Ship internationally.

    New Directions Aromatics Serves both USA and Canada. Supplier of essential oils, a few of which are hard to find elsewhere, fragrance oils, cosmetic-making supplies, a limited selection of aroma chemicals, packaging supplies, etc. Their ordering system is easy to use. No minimum order as far as I know. Feedback on this company is mixed at best, so extreme caution is advised. They are also located in the UK and Australia

    Omikron.de Supplier of A.C.'s, naturals & equipment.

    Oshadi U.S.A. Supplier of various oils,

    Oshadi U.K. Supplier of various oils.


    Perfumer’s Apprentice Supplier of aroma chemicals and perfume bases as well as a few essential oils and other natural materials. Also carries a few basic supplies. This is an excellent place to obtain a wide variety of aroma chemicals in small amounts. Easy ordering system with no minimum order. Ship internationally. Outstanding customer service.
    Also supplies products from John Steele (Lifetree Aromatix).

    Perfumer Supply House U.S.A. - see
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/379...se-is-now-live

    Proxisante - Supplier of oils, absolutes & other perfumery ingredients. (France).

    Scents of Earth Incense-making supplies including a good selection of solid resins, woods, seeds, etc. to use in making tinctures. Easy checkout, no minimum order. Ship internationally.

    Save On Scents Supplier of perfumer's alcohol in small amounts and bulk, fragrance oils, soap-, candle-, and cosmetic-making supplies, packaging materials, etc. They appear to ship internationally, but warn that it may be expensive. I find their strategy of charging extra if you're not a "member" annoying. To become a member you have to order $60 worth of their fragrance oils, which I do not want to do. Their checkout is a little cumbersome, but not too bad once you get used to it.

    The Good Scents Company Supplier of aroma chemicals and a few naturals, in small or large amounts. This is a good source, but the ordering system on their website is arcane and difficult to use. TGSC also has extensive information on aroma chemicals. Minimum order is $50. The website does not state whether they ship internationally.

    White Lotus Aromatics E.O's, Absolutes, CO2 extracts, attars, ruhs, essences.
    U.S. only.
    Minimum order $100.

    www.wildcrops.com Distiller - direct sales of EO's & hydrosols.

    Bottles and vials:

    Accessories for Fragrance Perfume bottles and vials. To me the prices seem high, but there is no minimum order. (NB: I have not ordered from them)

    Best Bottles (aka Nemat) Perfume bottles and vials, singly or in larger quantities. They have a good selection of bottles and vials and excellent service, but I have had problems with their bulb atomizers. Check-out is easy, and prices are reasonable, but there is a minimum order of $50.

    Pilotvials Perfume bottles and vials: Perfume bottles and vials, in small quantities. No minimum order as far as I know. (NB: I have not ordered from them)

    Specialty Bottle: A good variety of Boston round and other types of storage bottles, sample vials, jars, candle jars, tins, aluminum bottles, etc. Their prices and shipping are reasonable, and their prices on bulk sample vials are the best I've found. They have no minimum order, and ship internationally. Good customer service.

    Thumbs up Excellent supplier

    I did not see this supplier on the list, and I want to share with you.
    http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/
    I have ended up buying almost all my supplies from them.
    They stock almost every essential plant based oil, resins and base oils.
    Their beeswax is the best I've come across, and their dragons blood resin is excellent, pure, and the cheapest on the internet. (That's how I first found them)
    Everything is certified organic.

    I have brought from them since several years, I found the quality always good and a pleasant company to order from. They also send stuff to Europe, which is naturally a bit expensive but I consider it worthwhile.

    Default Re: Excellent supplier

    Yes, this one should go on the list, so maybe it can be added to the sticky. I seem to recall that their shipping is fairly expensive even in the US, but shipping internationally is a plus.

    Default Re: Excellent supplier

    Yes, when I am in America I have some stuff send up, and it is expensive too. But their products are mostly very reasonable in price, and they are very reliable. I do trust them not to send me junk essential oils, and that is something worthwhile.
    Sometimes they are out of a certain product as well.
    But they do have stuff which is difficult to get.

    Great initiative, DocElly!!!

    Here is my input, especially for Europeans:

    http://www.hekserij.nl/en/main.htm

    They are in Netherlands, Jan (the owner) is very knowledgeable, very good prices, they ship internationally and there is no minimum order.

    http://www.reincke-fichtner.de/

    They have a lot of aromachemicals that are not easy to find. You need to call them though and I'm not sure if they ship internationally, they do ship within EU.

    http://www.omikron-online.de/

    Nice supplier for aromachemicals and also other DIY cosmetics supplies. I'm not sure if they ship internationally, they do ship within EU.

    http://www.aqua-oleum.co.uk/

    Very high quality essential oils, very hard to find absolutes and other botanical extracts. I'm not sure if they ship internationally, they do ship within EU.

    http://www.kobashi.co.uk

    Great quality essential oils, a huge organic range and beautiful floral waters. Also some great supplies for DIY cosmetics. They ship internationally.

    http://www.luminescents.co.uk/

    Wonderful botanical range, with very hard to find absolutes (honeysuckle and hyacinth!) and tinctures, great for natural perfumers. Also some great supplies for DIY cosmetics. They ship internationally.

    Hi Folks
    I usually buy from perfumers apprentice & perfumers world for small quantities of aromchems but haven't found anyone in UK yet. Have considered setting something up myself but not sure what the uk demand would be like & if it would be worth it.
    For bottles and vials http://www.frenchflint.com is good but you have to buy a tray I think.

    I have been looking for small chunky bottles with ground glass stoppers but no luck so far, does anyone know where I can get something similar to the aftelier ones: http://www.aftelier.com/1-4-oz.-perfumes/ or chunky square ones along same lines?

    Thanks

    Default Re: DIY Suppliers List

    Hi! I noticed that a few of my favorite bottle & container suppliers haven't been mentioned, so I thought I'd add:

    Specialty Bottle -- sells vials, boston rounds, euro-dropper bottles, and jars in glass and PET plastic, as well as a selection of aluminum tins and some miscellany like lip gloss tubes and suchnot. I've been really happy with them. No minimums, good prices even on small quantities, reasonable shipping costs, friendly customer service, fast order processing. They're located in the Pacific Northwest, so a good place for West Coast USians to get containers.

    Sunburst Bottle Company -- Similar stock and pricing to Specialty Bottle, with a wider selection of goods. No minimums. I've only ordered from them once, but they seemed great. I had no problems with my order, and I seem to remember that it arrived quickly. They're also on the US west coast, in Sacramento, California.

    Taj Perfumes -- limited but carefully-considered selection, more oriented to perfumery than the other two I've mentioned. They have some sample vials, roll-ons and atomizers, as well as the usual dropper top boston rounds, vials, etc. Fantastic prices, especially on quantity, and they do a nice job of stuffing your order into the smaller US postal service boxes to save you money on shipping. They're in Baltimore, MD, so a good choice for East Coasters.

    I'm afraid I've never noticed which of these suppliers, if any, ship internationally, but I'd recommend any of them for folks in the US.

    ETA: For the person who was looking for bottles with ground glass stoppers, Mountain Home Biological at www.pelletlab.com sells the reagent bottles with the ground glass stoppers, but they're quite expensive. I'd try looking around at other lab supply places to see if anyone has them cheaper.

    Default Best suppliers for fragrance oils in the U.S.

    Does anyone have favorite suppliers of fragrance oils in the U.S.? I am looking for suppliers that have true-to-scent fragrances oils that keep their scent and don't have "after smells." I love perfumener's apprentice, but they don't sell in large quantities.

    Thanks!

    Default Re: DIY Suppliers List

    I'm not sure what you mean by "true to scent". Are you looking for fragrance oils that smell like what they're supposed to (e.g., "rose" FO that actually smells like rose)? Hardly any of them do, no matter where you get them. Are you looking for fragrance oils that are the same from one batch to another? Good luck with that, too, although the chances are better. When you say "keep their scent", do you mean withstand the soapmaking process? Most FOs are designed to be used in soap, so you'll probably have reasonably good luck with that if you get the highest concentration available.

    You might try Wellington, if you haven't already. I think they sell in bulk.

    I'm extremely new to DIY perfumery so my opinion is not backed by experience, but I've purchased Wellington fragrance oils and find them acceptable for a novice. I chose to order fragrance oils as an introduction to perfumery to avoid spending large sums of money on a new hobby. Most of the fragrances I've received have been pleasant and fairly representative of what I think they should smell like. I haven't noticed any odd or synthetic "off-notes".

    That said, I'm sure they are not as rich or accurate as real essential oils or custom blended aromachemical accords, but they are sufficient for my novice purposes. And they are pretty cheap

    How is Wellington's Neroli so cheap? It's only $14.65 an ounce and everywhere else it's over $100 an ounce, including Liberty Naturals. Both places seem to have good reviews here...

    Probably because it's synthetic or cut with something else. If you investigate, it may be something like 10% neroli in jojoba oil, which won't work for perfume making. I think Wellington is OK if you want to buy fragrance oils for soap or body care products, but I don't think they're the best source for natural materials.

    It's in the essential oils section, which I'm assuming is supposed to be pure. They have another cheaper one in the fragrance oils section which is the one that's cut with jojoba.

    Mountain Rose is a company I like to. I have many on my main laptop, but I only use my I4s on the road. Here is one more though. I will try and add more Sunday.
