Vials and bottles currently used for retail orders

It is important to have good quality vials for precious aromatics, even in small quantities.

 Keep away from (sun)light, heat, oxidation and adding any external materials in the bottles : they degrade your aromatics.

This section - that is updated when needed - describes in more details the different vials and bottles available for your retail orders.

For bulk and wholesale orders, we offer perfumer's professional glass or aluminium bottles, made in Grasse, France. 

The available options appear for each product under the "size" section when you are on items in the webshop.

You can also always contact us for customization. For example, it is completely possible to ask for 1ml in a 3ml attar bottle, or 2ml in 5ml uv blocking aromatherapy bottle, etc.

1. High-recovery laboratory glass vials

All those 3 vials are designed for precise lab use, and have a high recovery design (so small quantities of all do not lie flat and dry up at the bottom of your bottles). Also for all bottles, there is a silicone septum on the inside part of the cap, so oils are only in contact with glass / silicone, not plastic.

Those bottles are transparent, allowing you to enjoy the robe of the oils (their colour and appearance), which I am personally very fond of. Consequently, it is imperative that you keep them in the dark, if you want your oils to last. 

As illustrated on the picture below, there are currently 3 models:

1ml - Total Recovery (as seen on the left of the picture) : those have the most elaborate recovery system (compare bottom of the interior of the three vials). They are slightly top heavy though and should be manipulated with extreme care when open. My personal hack is to make them stable with a clamp (see second picture, below the main one) 

1.3 ml - Maximum Recovery (as seen on the center of the picture) : I am fond of those vials despite their unusual volume format (1.3 ml). The recovery system is less optimal, but still excellent (and lab standard). They are not top heavy (but as they are tiny, securing them is always worthy)

1.5 ml - Maximum Recovery (as seen on the right of the picture) : Those rare similar in quality to the 13, but from another maker, and using the more standard 1,5ml. Here as well, recovery system is less optimal then the Total recovey, but still excellent (and lab standard). They are not top heavy (but as they are tiny, securing them is always worthy)

2. Attar Bottles

These quality Bottles follow the traditional Attar / Ittar format, very widespread from the Middle-East to Southeast Asia. 

Made form very solid glass, they are well balanced. The Applicator is made of glass and a silicone septum makes sure precious oil are only in contact with glass and silicone, not plastic.

I do NOT recommend using the applicator stick as an ... applicator (as it will bring little particles of what it is in contact with back inside the bottle, which can degrade the oils). But it is wonderful to use to smell the oil outside of the bottle. Smelling form the bottle gives an olfactory bias.

The two available formats, shown on the picture are 3ml and 6ml.

Those bottles are transparent, allowing you to enjoy the robe of the oils (their colour and appearance), which I am personally very fond of. Consequently, it is imperative that you keep them in the dark, if you want your oils to last. 

 

 

3. Swiss made UV blocking Aromatherapy Bottles

These are classical high quality aromatherapy bottles, designed and fabricated in Switzerland. They come with UV blocking glass (but careful no non fully opaque-glass stops UV 100% so you still need to be mindful of sunlight).

Those I used mostly for classical aromatherapy oils, less so for the most precious aromatics (but can do so on request if you prefer)

The default colour is blue for the 5ml and 12ml formats shown on the picture below. I use blue and brown for bigger formats up for bulk orders (or blends) up to 100 ml

They can with a sealed white cap and a dropper appropriate for the thickness and viscosity of the oils you order.
