Wellington Fragrance Company out of Livonia, Michigan sells fragrance, essential and flavored oils, as well as other products. Out of Livonia, Michigan, their customer service is indeed superior and their ship time is just as impressive.
They do not sell the inexpensive watered down versions of fragrance oils that are found in most stores. Their prices are very reasonable and easily affordable. The oils are marked as cosmetic, manufactures or premium oils. When you click on the description of cosmetic, manufacturers or premium oils, they tell you what each grade of oil is best used for.
I am not a fragrance critic as I realize every individual has their own preferences. I consider myself a fragrance reviewer and only review items that I have purchased to put them to the test. Even in reviewing, I understand that our opinions may differ.
Some of the fragrances purchased for this review were:
AFRICAN RAIN: The description says it is the aroma of a tropical rainforest with lush florals drenched in warm rain. That is exactly what it reminds me of.
AQUOLINA PINK SUGAR TYPE: This is a very soft and feminine fragrance. Some of the notes are of vanilla, caramel, bergamot, musk, and strawberry. The complete description is on their website.
AMBER: This is definitely the scent of amber warmth. It makes a wonderful scent all by itself. It can also be used in mixing scents so that you can make your own unique scent.
AWAPUHI SEABERRY: I smell berries and water fragrances the most with this scent. The description says floral, melon and berries on top of an ocean breeze. It is an unusually elegant fragrance.
BUTT NAKED: Yes, that is the name of the fragrance, but donít shy away from this because of the name. This scent definitely has cherry in it and summertime comes immediately to mind. The description also lists watermelon as part of the fragrance.
COCO-MANGO: A combination of coconuts and mangoes. Fruity and light, this could be used to make a wonderful fragrant gifted item for someone.
DEWBERRY: Like the name, the description says honeydew melon with touches of berry. I definitely smell the melon first and the berries in the background.
EGYPTIAN MUSK: Remember the musk perfume that was all the rage when you were younger? This smell is so reminiscent of that time of life. Brown and amber colors come to mind with this fragrance.
FRANKINCENSE-MYRRH: Very earthy aroma with amber playing a part in this scent. It makes me think of deep, darkish, earthy and more of a masculine tone. This will be used for making scented gifts for the men in my life.
HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY: I seem to smell everything at once with this scent. The description lists the aromas as bananas, coconut and plumeria. As I continue smelling, there is more of a breakdown of the scents. No matter how it smells, paradise is one thing on my mind with this fragrance.
JAMAICAN ME CRAZY: It does indeed smell exotic and tropical as the description states. I get the distinct impression of fruits, and even though flowers arenít mentioned in the description, it has a more floral feel to me.
LAVENDER: This is just the thing needed to make a bed spray. The rich, soothing scent of lavender is one of the most popular fragrances people look for when trying to find something to help take the stress off.
In addition to these oils, they also have designer type oils, feng shui oils, aromatherapy blends, and oils for every zodiac type. They also offer flavor oils for lip balms and glosses, as well as essential oils.
Bottles, droppers, containers, bases and anything else you may need for your projects should be found right there. They will even put your own private label on the oils. This could be the start of a business and not just a hobby.
