ABOUT KISMET OLFACTIVE
WHY KISMET OLFACTIVE?

Kismet—from the Persian qismat, meaning “fate,” or, “what is meant to be”—translates the serendipitous moments that make up our lives into wearable scents.

We represent custom small-batch formulation, hand-selecting only the finest oils and ethically sustainable raw materials in our dedication to artful olfactive storytelling, creating fragrances from feelings.

IS KISMET OLFACTIVE FOR WOMEN OR MEN?

Kismet Olfactive is for everyone. We proudly offer bold, 100% unisex fragrances that are worn by all. We never create with a gender in mind, but for the pure art of creation. Also, we do not believe fragrance should ever be "gendered"—scent is so subjective to an individual's tastes and preferences. Different strokes for different folks.

PRODUCTS
ARE YOUR FRAGRANCES ALL-NATURAL? NON-TOXIC? DO THEY USE RAW MATERIALS SYNTHETICS? CHEMICALS? PARABENS?

Our fragrances represent custom small-batch formulation, hand-selecting only the finest oils and ethically sustainable raw materials in our dedication to artful olfactive storytelling.

We are not, and do not claim to be, an all-natural perfume brand, but we certainly pride ourselves in being natural dominant. We do not put parabens in our perfumes, but there are trace amounts of natural preservatives. This is in the interest of the client, so that their perfumes have a 2-year shelf life rather than 2-month.

Yes, we use some synthetics in our compositions. There are things you learn in perfumery that make this topic not so black and white. Just because something is “natural” doesn’t mean it’s safe. There are many natural raw materials that
are dangerous or have allergens that irritate or burn the skin. Synthetics are essentially lab created materials that mimic scent profiles or the natural world while still being safe to apply to the skin. Synthetics can also be a more sustainable alternative to some endangered natural raw materials—for example, natural Indian Sandalwood and Brazilian Rosewood are now extinct due
to over-harvesting; in cases like this, synthetics are sustainable substitutes.

For that reason, to be fully safety compliant, we use both naturals and synthetics to ensure a harmonious and safe composition.

ARE YOUR FRAGRANCES ALLERGY TESTED?

Our fragrances are in compliance with International Fragrance Association (IFRA) standards both in the US & EU.

ARE YOUR FRAGRANCES CRUELTY-FREE / VEGAN?

Yes, our fragrances are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. We do not test on animals.

HOW TO MAKE A PERFUME LAST LONGER?

Truth be told, fragrances wear very differently on different skin types. There are also many contributing factors, like: weather, sweat, how you apply, how much you apply, etc.

Two tricks of the trade we always share with our customers for longevity is to spray your clothes and spray your hair. The more fiber a fragrance can attach to, the longer it has a chance to last.

CAN STUDIO SCENT BE WORN ON THE SKIN?

Studio Scent was originally designed/created to be an ambient room spray / atmosphere scent, but people seem to love it equally on the body—so, it has organically shifted to double as a skin fragrance! 

There is nothing in this fragrance that makes it unwearable on the body. The only real difference is that Studio Scent is at an Eau de Toilette (EDT) concentration
rather than Eau de Parfum (EDP) concentration like the rest of the line. So if on the body is your preferred use, by all means!

HOW COME THERE IS SOME CLOUDINESS / SEDIMENT IN THE PERFUME?

We use a very high concentration of natural raw materials, hence why our price points are slightly higher than “market standard." With that said, we also do not filter our fragrances. That means oftentimes there is naturally occurring sediment, fat from flowers, or debris from the distillation processes that could be floating in the liquid. There is nothing harmful or dangerous about this. You can compare / imagine the way natural wines have sediment at the bottom of the bottle and can flow into your glass with some cloudiness.

WHAT KIND OF WAX IS IN YOUR CANDLES AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

We use coconut wax with a little soy and apricot oil. Our wicks are 100% cotton with no lead. Our candles are all hand-poured. And burn time is approximately 60 hours.
