There is a perfume for every emotion and there is legislation for every perfume ingredient.

McNeese Customs & Commerce srl can help you get your perfumes to market faster by helping you with regulatory compliance needs. You can have the finest perfume, created by the best perfumer in the business, and if the regulatory requirements are not met your goods will be stuck in Customs or will be removed from a store shelf by a Consumer Protection agent. Having an effective perfume compliance program ensures that your clients get what they want, when they want it; and that is what McNeese can do for you.


At McNeese we listen to your aspirations for your perfumes, then we advise on how to get your goods through Customs and past the regulatory auditors in a legally compliant manner.
What qualifications does McNeese have to help you? We combine extensive training in Customs and regulatory matters with perfume knowledge gained from The Grasse Institute of Perfumery (GIP) in Provence, France. GIP is the world's most prestigious institute of higher education for studying perfumery, from perfume creation to perfume regulation.


Keeping up with Perfume Legislation:

Perfume legislation changes three times a year. Certain nations require testing, certification, and registration of cosmetic products (including perfumes) 30 days prior to their importation. Can your company keep up with frequent legislative detail changes while focusing on its core activities? At McNeese Customs & Commerce srl our priority is to make regulatory compliance less complicated and easier to apply to your specific situation.


Destination nation-specific compliance requirements:

Host nation legislative requirements may include, and may not be limited to:
ingredient restrictions
general labelling regulations
environmental labelling claims
packaging restrictions and requirements
units of measurement and the net content declaration
good manufacturing practices
safety substantiation and testing requirements
product certification and registration requirements
adverse experience reporting
advertising claims


Consumer Safety:

Perfume ingredients may have healing or harming effects on consumers; they can be natural or synthetic, and even natural ingredients in unregulated doses can be toxic. Also, certain fragrance ingredients can be allergens and consumers have a legally protected right to avoid products to which they may allergic.

A perfume company's efforts to provide consumer information are only as good as the knowledge and access that staff have to industry standards and regulatory requirements. Reading the rules and regulations is not enough, you have to know how to interpret and integrate them into your product, to be safe from a regulatory perspective.

Many perfumes are produced under license, which requires that the brand-owner, licensee, and exporter have a unified compliance program. Everyone in the supply chain must be in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations.


At McNeese Customs & Commerce srl we can give you guidance in perfume compliance; thereby, helping you protect one of the most important assets in your company - your brand's reputation.
