If you are in the beauty niche, perfumes are one of the best things to sell. People have always liked a good smell, even back in ancient Egypt, and we are no different.
But where do you find people to sell to?
Today, I’ll show you the nine US, UK, and Chinese companies that make perfume. By the end of this tutorial, you should be ready to go to these suppliers and see what they have to offer.
But first, let’s make sure they’re honest.
Don’t Sell Fake Perfume
There are a lot of fake perfume sellers on the Internet. There’s a lot of money to be made in this business, but it’s not a good one. Many sellers keep both the real and the fake version.
After a customer places an order, the seller will decide whether or not this person is an expert. If the seller thinks the buyer won’t know the difference, he will send the fake one. He will send the original one if he thinks the buyer is an expert.
If the seller made a mistake and sent a fake, and the buyer found out, the seller will just say sorry and send the real thing.
Avoid doing this. You have to be honest if you sell things online.
This is a dishonest way to run a business. If you want to sell perfume, you must sell the real thing, not a fake. If you think it will be hard to sell them because they are expensive, you should look for perfumes that are not a brand name.
Again, never sell fake perfumes.
Best Wholesale Perfume Suppliers
It has been 32 years since this company started. It sells perfumes in bulk, and you can buy many different brands here.
Here are a few of the names they go by:
- Abercrombie & Fitch
- Britney Spears
- Ralph Lauren
Here, you can find dozens and dozens of different brands. Go to the company’s website and then download the brochure to see the price list.
If you are new to the business, you can read a beginner’s guide to perfumes in the site’s training area.
You need to sign up for an account before you can start. If you live in the UK, the MOQ, or minimum order quantity, is at least £200. Outside of the European Union, the minimum order is £1,000. You can only pay through a bank transfer; the company doesn’t take payments through credit or debit cards.
This business doesn’t do dropshipping. If you want this as a supplier, you have to buy in bulk and pay cash before you get the goods.
Like the first one, this one sells a variety of brands. The company sells more than just perfumes. They also sell products for hair and skin care.
These are some of the brands they sell:
- Hugo Boss
- Calvin Klein
- Emporio Armani
- Dolce and Gabbana
If you live in the UK, you can use their “local collect” service. In this service, they will bring your items to the post office near you. Then you will go there to get your things.
If you want to return something, you must send an email to customer service within 90 days of when you got the item. The company will only give refunds for broken items, and you have to send photos to prove that the perfume you got is broken.
Go to the website’s delivery page to see if your country is listed to see if you can order their products. Some deliveries are made by land instead of by air.
In addition to perfumes, this company sells hair care, skin care, and cosmetics. H&B has been around since 1981, and over the years it has grown into a global company.
Some examples of the brands they sell are:
- Estee Lauder
- Donna Karan Givenchy New York
- Ralph Lauren
Before you can order, you have to make an account. If you live in the UK, you must spend at least £500 for shipping to be free. If your order costs between £300 and £500, you’ll have to pay £6 in VAT. Orders of less than £300 are not accepted.
For delivery all over the world, you need to go to the company’s export page. If you live in the European Union, ordering is easy because the company will send it to you via DHL. If you live outside the EU, you need a freight forwarding service that will pick up your order from their warehouse. VAT is not charged on any orders sent outside of the EU.
This company sells in bulk and ships all over the world. It has a lot of different brands for both men and women. It is one of the world’s largest wholesalers of perfumes to Duty Free shops.
Some of the brands you can find here are:
- Tommy Hilfiger
To buy, just put the things you want to buy in your shopping cart like you normally would. After you’ve picked all the products you want, you have to click the Get a Quote button. Next, fill out the details of your shipping order and confirm your order.
If you live in the United States, UPS Ground is the shipping service that the company uses. The shipping rate is based on how much your order weighs and how big the box needs to be to ship it. The company ships all over the world, but the website doesn’t say how much it would cost to ship to a country other than the US. Also, customs duties and import tariffs are paid for by the person who buys the product.
La Belle Perfume
La Belle has a huge selection of fragrances for men, women, and kids. All of the perfumes on the site are brand names, and you can only buy them in bulk.
Some brands you can find here are:
- Drakkar Noir
- Cindy Crawford
La Belle has been doing this for more than thirty years. It works with freight forwarders, so you can be sure that your shipment will get there. In contrast to other wholesalers, the prices here depend on how much money you spend.
If you want to buy more than $3,500 worth of perfumes, you have to email the company first to get a special price. Your orders also have an insurance policy. But if the order is less than $100, the cost of insurance is only 2.5% of the total value of the cart. If you don’t want this insurance, you can get rid of it, but then the carrier will have to pay for any losses.
This is one of the largest places in the US that sells perfume. In some cases, shipping is free, and all of the perfumes here are 100% real.
Here are some names of brands:
- Calvin Klein
- Dolce & Gabbana
- Christian Dior
The company has been around since 1995, and if you buy from them, you can save up to 70%. You can also buy testers to put in front of your shop.
You have to make a wholesale account before you can place an order. Unless you do this, you will have to pay the full price. The business sends packages to 220 countries. Use the company’s shipping calculator to find out how much you will have to pay.
You will have to pay customs duties if you place an order. You can only use the shipping calculator after you’ve signed up for an account or reached the checkout page.
AliExpress is not the only place to buy perfume. It’s kind of like Amazon in China. On AliExpress, the big difference is that the sellers are also the manufacturers.
On AliExpress, you can’t find any real brands. Instead of high-end brands, you’ll find low-end brands here. Almost all sellers on AliExpress do dropshipping, which is a good thing.
If you are a dropshipper and don’t mind selling perfumes that aren’t brand names, AliExpress is the best place to get perfumes.
White label is another great thing about working with manufacturers on the AliExpress platform. This means that you can ask the supplier to make you a label. Your brand is this label.
Before you can do white label, you have to meet a minimum order requirement. You can decide if you want the perfume sent to you or if you want the supplier to send it straight to your customer.
This is a website for people who buy in bulk. It’s similar to AliExpress, but it’s based in Hong Kong. DHGate is a great place to find deals, just like AliExpress.
If you buy a brand-name item from DHGate, be careful because it’s likely a fake. Even if it’s not a fake, it might be passed around illegally. You see, if a supplier in China makes the product for, say, Givenchy, that means it can make more than what Givenchy ordered.
Then, this company can put these extra perfumes on the market and sell them. This isn’t right. Brands don’t let companies sell their own products. There are always rules about who can sell a brand, so don’t buy branded items here. Instead, you should only buy cheap brands.
Dropshippers can also find a lot of great things on DHGate. Here, you can buy the item piece by piece on the retail market and then ask the seller to ship it to your customer.
AliExpress is run by Alibaba, which is the parent company. Here, there are a lot of suppliers, but most of them do wholesale with white label and private label.
If you want to buy something for retail, you have to go to the Ready to Ship section. Here you can find bottles of perfume that you can buy.
On AliExpress, you can only buy one item at a time. On Alibaba, you can buy a lot of items at once and get a discount. Dropshipping isn’t really an option here, so buying in bulk is better. If you want to, you can try the product. You can do this by ordering one bottle and having it sent to you. There are no fake items here. Instead, you’ll find brands you’ve never heard of.
Whether you are selling the product wholesale or retail, you need to test it. Get a sample and take a whiff.
Look at the packaging and see if the people you want to buy it are going to like it. China is the place to go if you want to sell perfumes without brand names. But if you want brand-name perfumes, you can only buy them from the UK and the US.
When it comes to perfume, both the quality and the way it’s packed matter. If it is nicely wrapped, you will be able to sell it for more money.
