    Default Abdes Salaam / La Via Del Profumo now available through Lucky Scent

    Couldn't find any threads about this, so I thought I'd spread the news: https://www.luckyscent.com/brand/816/la-via-del-profumo

    That's great news. It's a limited selection of scents and sizes, but it's still nice to have some US distribution.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.

    For sure. I'd actually been gearing up to buy a 50 ml of Oakmoss after draining the split I bought from you earlier this year. I think it'll come out a few bucks cheaper from Lucky Scent given the free shipping.

    It’s a good move to reach a larger pool of customers used to shelling out big $ for interesting fragrances.

    Excellent.

    I'm partial to Mecca Balsam as a terrific incense scent, while others get more tobacco from it. Worth the $160.

    Agreed. When I had it...it was all about incense, spice and creamy balsamic woods. There was an amber vibe...smoky-vanilla which I think was labdanum. Haven't tried it in a while. I sold my bottle only because my wife wasn't a fan.

    I did one some years ago and a couple of BNers here have made theirs too. Been itching to get another one done. Do share your experience & note selections with us!

    Great news! I ordered a custom scent last winter, it is based on incense, cacao and patchouli. Very nicely done.

    Yes, but you will miss the presents that I always add to Basenoters orders, and soon (looking for a plugin) the permanent offer that for 3 perfumes of any size, the third one is half price.

    Just as a point of interest, distributors take a large percentage of an indie perfumer’s profit margins, so if you are able to order directly from the perfumer you are supporting them financially in an important way.

    And shipping from AbdesSalaam is extremely fast from Italy.

    Thank you Cazaubon. You are right but with Luckyscent it has been different. For my perfumes with extremely costly ingredients (Oudh and lately Vanilla), they have lowered their percentage.
    It is also different because I have chosen them as my exclusive retailers. No other shop in the world. It is because I like very much their story and philosophy.
    The part they take is also not so large if you consider their costs, shipping, customs, taxes, shop rent, web site ecc.
    They make a service to people that I could not provide, a material place where to smell my fragrances and a sampling service.
    I am happy with the deal and also honoured to be among their choice of brands.
    However you understand a big point Cazaubon, and Ishall give to no one else in retail because it would not be sustainable economically for me to sell that way. My prices have been calculated for direct sale to customers. If I had the intention to distribute to retailers, the prices would have had to be much higher, considering the costs of my materials.
    Altogether, this is why luckyscent is my first and my last distributer, my exclusive distributer.
