We popped in for a quick visit and enjoyed checking out what was on offer. Friendly attitude and also a friendly wee cat to greet us!

Great place to find gifts. Good variety of soaps, creams, jewellery and crafts. A bit hard to find as looks a bit like a factory with no shop and not worth going into. But it is worth the effort.

I always like to visit the perfume factory when in Rarotonga. they have great perfumes for men and omen at good prices, and the unique scents reflect the tropical south pacific that you cannot get in main stream shops at home.

It is always a pleasure to go to the perfume factory. They have the most amazing smells which they put into oils, soaps and lotions. This is a must when visiting raro.

There was no visible tours or information re the factory and there was no information available to take home for the gifts. The items were lovely and fragrant and high quality with reasonable prices however we would not have visited there again.

This gift shop near the airport has a wide variety of fragrant gifts for yourself or to take home. The prices were reasonable. The staff make many of their own products so are helpful and knowledgeable.

Well that is what it is for, there is no indication of being able to see the factory or it's workings, just a shop selling product. Which was nice enough and the young lady was very helpful and guided us re taking stuff back to NZ and what to declare etc. But there was no offer of telling us about... More
