I paid $3/ml for the real deal.

Zoha Aroma on the other hand has Citron Noir which is $45/50ml - more reasonable.

Has anyone tried Zoha? I assume they get their perfume oils from the same place as AF.
It's best to wait and compare with the 30% off deals like they just had to see if it's worth the investment, most likely a 25% coming up for the Christmas holiday. The now 55ml (which used to be 60ml) was a much better pricing over the smaller bottles which is why I never bothered going with them and only ended up getting the bigger bottles with the deeper discount savings.

i have 14 of the Zoha parfum collection (including citron noire) and 20 of the oils. Most are very good and very close to the original. Citron Noire smells great but is not that close to Roja Elysium (imho).

Also, if you are interested in getting the concentrated oils and adding perfumers alcohol and a dash of poly20 you can get the oils from http://universalperfumesandcosmetics.com/ . I'm guess that's the source of most of the oils that zoha/oilperfumery etc use.

@kaiser__sose Is this website legitimate? Shows not secure and not looking to get burned. Are there any in Canada that offer something similar? Also, can you offer any more insight into mixing your own fragrances? What's required?

Thanks for your time.

The website is legit I've ordered before and a few people in the frag forums have also successfully ordered.

There are local Toronto companies that sell simar oils for ex: zohaaroma.com

I'm not an expert by any means but to make sprays from the oils I just add perfumers alcohol to the oils at a ratio of 2.5:1 alcohol to oil.

Nordstrom’s - make your own sample from whatever they have available.

I was planning to order the 250mL from the site above but I don't want to keep all of it.The shipping doesn't seem to be worth the cost for a 50mL.

Doesn’t Saks sell Penhaligons? Maybe best way for their discount days.

Otherwise find a fragrance group on FaceBook and hope for the best.

This sounds interesting. I have 2 empty bottles that I am looking to refill.

1 x Creed Erolfa
1 x Creed Viking

I'd like to refill these bottles instead of paying retail price again. How close are these "Concentrated Oils" to smelling like the real thing?. If I were to buy a 50ml Concentrated Oil, I could mix this with perfumer's alcohol and re-fill my bottles?

You mention mixing 2.5 (alcohol) : 1 (oil) . Everything I read online says EDT is like 85% alcohol. You have got good results with that ratio?

Would you happen to know if this link below is Oil or is it already mixed with alcohol?
