How to create a private label / white label air freshener

Do you dream of creating your own air freshener so that it is branded with your brand and your logo?

I suggest some simple steps to make the whole process go smoothly and quickly.

The first and most important question: for what purpose do you need such an air freshener?

If you are looking for an air freshener to give out to your customers as a promotional gadget - go straight to a company that produces such ordinarily paper air fresheners. You will probably already be able to make your choice of shape on their website and send them your logo.

However, if you are looking for refreshers that you intend to market and sell successfully, keep reading.


Creating a private label product is a complicated process, to make it as simple as possible, start by choosing the right first product. Check which air fresheners sell best, remembering that value is important, not quantity. Therefore, I encourage you to browse the available air fresheners and look for something more attractive than a typical paper air freshener. It can be a sachet, bottle or organic - the effect will always be better than a standard paper air freshener.

Paper air fresheners, sachet air fresheners, scented bottle air fresheners, organic air fresheners, all other solutions


The steps for finding the type of your first custom air freshener should include:

  1. type of air freshener (paper, bottle, sachet, gel, wood)
  2. fragrance versions - those that are the best-selling on your market, I suggest limiting yourself to no more than 5 fragrance versions
  3. your product positioning on the market - do you want your air freshener to be better and more expensive than the ones currently available, identical or just cheaper.
  4. your monthly sales plan, that is how many units of your air freshener you can sell per month

If you already know the answer to these 4 questions you can start your search for a manufacturer.

The search for the right manufacturer as usual starts on the internet. Before submitting a request, carefully review the manufacturer's website evaluating if:

  1. it has experience in manufacturing private label air fresheners.
  2. its location - the country of origin of your air fresheners

Now you can send inquiries. Send them in any form you like, but always state what you're looking for in the query - your answers to the first 4 questions.


Choosing a manufacturer

You have already sent inquiries and are getting first responses and quotes. At this stage do not decide yet on the choice of the supplier.

Ask for samples of agreed fragrance versions - this is where the first costs come in on your side - it will be the cost of sending the samples to you, the samples themselves you will probably get for free.

Test the samples you receive - now you know what to expect from each potential manufacturer.

Now is the time to detail your ideas for your own air freshener with the cost of changes and additional work on the part of the manufacturer. Now you will receive the final offer and price.

Now, make sure that you get support from the manufacturer in developing and checking the text of your label to make sure that it complies with the current legislation in your target markets - this is extremely important as, for example, in Europe you cannot sell air fresheners that do not have a REACH compliant label description. Ask for the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) and see what regulations it is based on. Also check carefully whether the manufacturer you are talking to really produces anything. For example, if it comes from Europe, can it issue a EUR1 certificateA good way to verify is to make an appointment at the manufacturer's facility - if you have time, you go, if not - nothing happens. Those who won't confirm an appointment usually have something to hide.

Lead time - the time it takes to produce your air freshener. This always takes time. Better to wait a week longer and confirm all the details twice than to get a product that does not fully meet your expectations! Take your time and the final effect will depend on it. A good manufacturer will guide you and ask the right questions or suggest their proven solutions for packaging, transportation, and labeling of the bulk packaging.


You already know everything, you can now choose a supplier and place your order!

How human brain perceives smells?

Essential oils and the olfactory system

Fragrances and smells are around us all the time.

When fragrance enters trough nasal passage, travels until reaches the olfactory bulb. Via the olfactory bulb, the aroma is sent directly to the center of the brain, to the limbic system, where it is processed and releases heurochemicals that can be relaxing, stimulating, sedative, etc. – depending on the essential oil being used and some memories kept in mind. Fragrant stimuli get directly to the brain causing certain sensation. Depending on power of fragrance (how many molecule of fragrance in 1sqm) we can get phenomenon of fragrance perception in time:

  1. From 0 – human brain cannot perceive fragrance
  2. Unconscious perception – the best level for aroma marketing, when people do not sense nothing, but brain reaction are some emotions
  3. Can smell, but cannot recognize – it’s the level when brain can smell something but do not know what it is, cannot name it. As well very good level for all aroma marketing and air fresheners products because brain react with some emotions and cannot understand why
  4. Can recognize fragrance and can sensible react – that the amount of fragrance where all air fresheners and perfume are.
  5. Overdosing and pain when there is too much of fragrance for a long time dizziness and headache may occur. Please come back to reasons, why people do not use air fresheners!

In all phases at some point human brain may switch off – not to smell the fragrance any longer, to be ready for new one. It’s extremely important for our brain to be ready for reaction if  any danger situation come – for example some spoiled food. Second mechanism is an adaptation mechanism – when some fragrance or smell omnipresent we cannot smell it anymore after some period of time (from 2 minutes up to 2hours), once again it gives possibility to work normally to protect organism. Do you remember your favorite air freshener or perfume – after some period of time it has no smell!

How the odor eliminator works ?

Everyone everyday struggles with bad odor problem. Whether it is in Your kitchen, Your bathroom, bedroom or even living room, unpleasant odor is always unbearable. That’s why we manufacture special products odor neutralizers. Rather than mask bad smells with stronger fragrance we nullify the odor itself. It is much more efficient  way to get rid of any bad smell in your home, car, office, hotel or toilet,



ODOR / ODOUR = a perception resulting from stimulation of olfactory receptors

ODORANT = a substance that elicits an olfactory response

MALODOR = an odor that is unpleasant or disliked when perceived in a specific context

DETECTION THRESHOLD = concentration at which 50% of a human panel can identify the presence of an odor or odorant without characterizing the stimulus


Malodors can be encountered in the air, on fabrics, on bathroom or kitchen surfaces. They can emanate from human skin or hair, from pet fur, litter containers and animal cages. Malodors can also result from daily human activities like cooking, smoking, etc … . The compounds that cause malodors are often very volatile. Most common unpleasant chemical groups include short chain aliphatic acids, aldehydes and esters, nitrogen-containing compounds such as amines, sulphur-containing compounds such as thiols and sulfides.


There are different chemical groups found in malodors. We can distinguish the following sources of different types of malodors: urine, toilet odors, axillary malodors, kitchen and garbage, cigarette smoke.

There are some typical ways of eliminating malodors perception:

  1. By removing a portion of the malodor molecule to bring its detection below its threshold of detection. We can do it by removing the source of malodor by cleaning.
  2. By altering how the odorant is perceived:
  3. When malodor is absorbed in a surface-based process on granulated activated carbon or zeolites. These way of odor neutralizing is the most safe and ecological. Has no impact on sounding environment. Can be used in refrigerators and with contact with pets. These is the most safe way of odor neutralizing but some of people complain that there is no smell and it does not work.
  4. Masking – overpowering by addition of other odorants. Typical air fresheners, perfumes, deodorants.
  5. Neutralizing – by changing its chemical structure, producing malodorless by-products. It’s possible because reaction with aldehydes react with amines producing a Schiff base and water. That’s typical way of odor neutralizing process. That way can be connected with masking to create most effective home and car air fresheners.

There is no possibility to connect absorption (2.a) with masking or neutralizing. The only way to create the most effective odor neutralizer is to connect Neutralizing with masking. The product made that way is odor neutralizer in neutralizing way and is adding some nice fragrance as a final effect. There are some natural raw materials that gives possibility to go thru the whole chemical process in natural way.

Scents of air fresheners

An odor or odour or fragrance is caused by one or more volatilized chemical compounds, generally at a very low concentration, that humans or other animals perceive by the sense of olfaction. Odors are also commonly called scents, which can refer to both pleasant and unpleasant odors. The terms fragrance and aroma are used primarily by the food and cosmetic industry to describe a pleasant odor, and are sometimes used to refer to perfumes, and to describe floral scent. In the United Kingdom, odour refers to scents in general. In the United States and for many non-native English speakers around the world, odor generally has a negative connotation, as a synonym for stink; on the other hand, scent or aroma are used by those people to indicate “pleasant smells” (Wikipedia).



SCENT – an aroma in general

FRAGRANCE – concentrated aroma

ODOR / ODOUR – bed smell, stink


Fragrances comes from natural resources or synthetic.

Natural Fragrance – commonly named Natural Essential Oils, are concentrated aromatic oils from plant sources. Depending on the particular oil the part of the plant that may be used may be the blossoms, leaves, seeds, root or the wood. Essential oils are a complex of many different chemical components. They can play various role in nature serving plants and allowing them to grow and survive. Essential oil uses include aromatherapy, cosmetics, massage oils, incense, perfumes and air freshening products. Their scents can be very therapeutic and can have differing effects on the mind, emotions and body. Natural Fragrance are more expensive and some of them extremely expensive. The usage of them is limited to very good air fresheners, fine fragrances (perfume) and essential oils. Some innovative essential oils are prepared with small portion of carrier oils to make use of it much easier and comfortable.

Synthetic Fragrance – created in laboratory and made in industrial way. Synthetic fragrances are strong and they last a long time. There are a blend of various chemical compounds, many of which are common allergens or are linked to hormone disruption. Synthetic fragrance are much cheaper than Natural Fragrance, and thus more commonly used. Synthetic Fragrance are commonly used household cleaning products, washing powders, detergents, toilet air fresheners, home air fresheners, car air fresheners, fine fragrances, food industry and many, many more.

Fragrance blend – mixture of Natural and Synthetic Fragrances. It’s the best way to create symphony of scents. That’s the place where artists are. First well know Fragrance blend was created by Coco Chanel in 1920’s “A woman’s perfume with the scent of a woman” would not have been possible without synthetic aldehydes. Fragrance blend is used in fine fragrances, good home air fresheners, some of car air fresheners.


The main source of good quality fragrance, especially Fragrance Blend is Europe, mainly in France. Every manufacturer has in his portfolio cheap blends or synthetic fragrances as well as very good products. There is no quality differences based on localization in Europe.

Europe become so strong in good quality fragrances because of very strong legislation process. REACH is the European Regulation on chemicals regarding the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances (REACH). The aim is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through more thorough and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. Moreover, the REACH Regulation gives greater responsibility to industry to manage chemical risks and to provide safety information about these substances. In fact some of very popular US or Japanese fragrances are classified as poisons, 90% of Chinese fragrances are forbidden for legal usage in Europe.


HOME air fresheners

The World of home air fresheners looks very similar in every country. Mainly are in use floral and fine fragrance notes. Fruits – especially Lime in India and very heavy oud scent in Middle East are the only exclusion. In the world more and more popular and more welcome is the smell of fresh flowers.

Some stories big popularity of cherry fragrances connect with previous popularity of smoking pot in car. The only fragrance to make it as not to be discovered was cherry fragrance.

South America – Cherry and Vanilla, it depends on country but these two plays main role.

Middle East – Strawberry, sweet fruity with some of bubble gum. Strong fragrances with fresh meaning, but fresh means berries scent.

India – Lemon / Lime, natural fresh lemon. Very strong. It’s in India connected with new car smell and religion. When you buy new car, first you have to put fresh lime under each radial tire. With first movement of new car crush the limes and squirting juice.

China – Peach, sweet soft peach. Chinese are very sensitive and do not like strong fragrances.

The perfume description of particular fragrance is usually presented with the help of FRAGRANCE TRIANGLE. It’s kind of pyramid.

TOP notes: the first impression, very light and fresh notes, they are first we can identify when smelling an air freshener or perfume.

HEART notes: that’s the core of every air freshener or perfume. It comes just after TOP notes and it’s the essence of aroma.

BASE notes: makes an air freshener or perfume full depth and richness. There are the base from where the flower can grow to HEART and TOP and become full of experience and carry the accord for whole air freshener.

If you can imagine natural ROSE with beautiful red flowers, full of beautiful scents – that you can describe as:

TOP notes: Green, Fruity, Aldehydic

HEART notes: Rose, Violet

BASE notes: Amber, Honey

Car fresheners come in different forms, so that you can hang it in the rear-view mirror, fix it to the AC vent, or let it sit on the dashboard. They are available in multiple formats and can spread the fragrance to every corner of the car.

The closed confines of the car for long raises the bad stink within the interiors. If you feel an unwanted odor inside the car, then you can be sure that it will be an uncomfortable experience driving with such odor piercing through your nose every second you are in the car. A car perfume helps you get rid of unwanted smells and make the interiors a better place to be in when you are moving around in your car.

3. Enables Freshness with Every Drive

Since the windows are rolled up most of the time in the car, it will be difficult for fresh air to circulate within the interiors. This raises the chances of bad smells emanating from the car. As a result, the entire drive becomes an unpleasant experience. An air freshener helps you get the feeling of freshness without having to keep the windows rolled down for a long time. While you may have great car accessories like car seat covers and bass speakers, it is recommended to not forget that even organic car air fresheners are essential accessories that you need to have in your car.

4. Important for Cars with Pets

If you carry pets in the car then it is likely that their smell will waft around in the car’s interiors.

An air freshener helps to make the air quality inside better and hence make the entire drive a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Having the car properly scrubbed, washed, and cleaned can remove almost all the bad smells. But let’s be honest – do we have the time to get this done on a periodic basis? We simply do not have the time to undertake these activities.

This way, when you actually step in, you will be greeted with a warm, fruity fragrance rather than the stinky smells.

Why Fresh Ambience at Workplace is Important?

When it comes to creating a great physical environment at the workplace for employees and customers, everything from the lighting, ventilation, cleanliness of furniture and the washrooms to the quality of air matters. To state that the air that people breath at the workplace must be kept free of bad odors, would be an understatement. A fresh ambiance at the workplace not only calls for bad odor removal but also consistently maintaining a healthy and pleasing fragrance.

Here we take you through the economic value of a healthy and fresh physical environment at the workplace, the adverse effects of covering up bad odors on people and business, the choice of best air fresheners for office and the diverse benefits that each of these bring and finally, some tips to keep bad odors away from the workplace.

Why a Healthy and Fresh Physical Environment at the Workplace Matters?

Ever since the Hawthorne Experiments conducted by Elton Mayo, there has been a growing chorus on the benefits of creating and maintaining a healthy and fresh physical environment at the workplace. The experiment offered evidence that good lighting and ventilation at the workplace, augment the productivity of people.

Strengthening the arguments for a better and happier physical environment, an article published in the Harvard Business Review quoted findings from a contemporary research.

The findings of the research assert that a great physical environment at the workplace perks up the mood of people keeps them in good spirits and boosts their morale. The research goes on to list the particulars that make for a healthy physical environment at the workplace like lighting, ventilation, open spaces, extent of clutter and finally, good and bad odors.

What Covering Up Bad Odors Can Do to Corporate Reputation?

Of the many different aspects of the physical environment at a workplace, the odor is one of those that are not visible and thus many a time entrepreneurs, corporate executives, managers, and workplace administrators fail to gauge the importance of a neutralizing odor. Many others may consider covering up bad odors with a more intense but artificial odor to suffice, which of course does not produce the best results as people get to smell the two odors distinctly.

Not only is a cover odor grossly insufficient, but it also does more harm to corporate reputation and brand image. When external visitors, customers, and employees discover a business enterprise practicing a “cover-up” culture that is unhealthy and opaque, their trust in the business gets badly shaken. The unhealthy physical environment at the workplace and the bad odor in the air inside become proxies for customer and employee dissatisfaction.

This can be especially the case in business verticals that require both the employees and the customers to be on the shop floor at the same time. Some of these industry verticals are as follows:

How Do Neutralizing Odors Contribute to a Happier Workplace?

While covering up bad odors can have negative consequences for people at the workplace, as shown above, the use of odor neutralizers can make an impact on people at the workplace. In fact, it has been observed that the use of diverse aromas at the workplace can lead to specific effects on the psyche of people. We take through the specific fragrances of air fresheners for offices and workplaces and the corresponding outcomes that these fragrances can enable businesses to achieve:

Tips to Leverage Aroma as a Lever of Productivity at the Workplace

Given the mounting evidence in favor of the positive effects of bad odor removal and use of organic air fresheners and the adverse effects of bad odors on employee productivity and morale at offices and workplaces, it makes enormous good sense to adhere to a few basics as a matter of thumb rule. These are as follows:

Given the deep impact that odor has on people at the workplace, one thing comes out as an axiomatic truth. Good aromas bring more out of people. A neutralizing odor can motivate an employee to do more at the workplace and a customer to spend more. A workplace that smells good more often, does good business more often.
