We had a lot of vintage china tea sets that we hired out for weddings and parties. We decided that vintage china hire wasn't for us which left us with a lot of china. Fast forward a few years and we decided to make the tea cups into candles to add value and to sell them on (they took up a lot of space that we wanted back)
From this we started making wax melts which proved to be very popular. We were constantly looking for new and unusual fragrances but found that the UK fragrance oil suppliers tended to stock similar fragrances. We contacted the manufacturer who made a lot of the fragrance oils that we used to see if these unusual fragrance oils were available and found that many were available but were not imported to the UK.
We had a conversation that evening about the oils and how it would be great if someone would stock them. The conversation carried on and led to discussions with the manufacturer and the formation of Fragrance Oils Direct.
Importing new fragrance oils does add complications as a lot of the oils do not have SDS and CLP readily available or may not currenly be compliant for the UK marklet. We feel that it is worth putting in the extra effort to make these oils compliant and doing somethig a bit different. We do stock some of the popular fragrance oils but are constantly looking to bring new and unusual fragrances to the UK market.
