Frequently Asked Questions

What does the name Oligie Mean?
Oligie is a play on the root suffix -ology, which is “a subject of study, or a branch of knowledge”. We pride ourselves on the way we thoroughly study scent and the way it can connect emotions and experiences. We are dedicated to creating products that smell amazing and provide impactful experiences.

Where is your product made?
Most of our products are made in the U.S.A. Everything else is sourced ethically and sustainably overseas.

Are your products organic/chemical free and free of animal testing?
Every product we create is Vegan, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, and designed to be as sustainable as possible. While we cannot promise that every ingredient in our super secret fragrances are organic, we can promise you that we are making our products as natural as possible without compromising quality.

What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
Unscented and hypoallergenic, fractionated coconut oil is loaded with natural antioxidants and MCT triglycerides for healing. This light, thin oil can repair damaged skin and is one of the best carrier oils on the market today. Also, it never goes rancid and has an extremely long shelf life.

Will Parfum Oil stain my clothes?
It is possible that the Parfum Oil may stain your clothes. To avoid this, always apply directly to the skin at your pulse points, and do not spray directly on fabric or clothing.

Do your products contain SPF?
Currently our products do not contain any SPF.

Are your products hypoallergenic?
Our Parfum Oils have a 80% base of organic fractionated coconut oil, which is naturally moisturizing and typically safe for most skin types. If you do see a reaction from using our product, please stop using it immediately.

What is the best way to apply the Parfum?
Apply Oligie Parfum Oil to pulse points such as neck, wrists, chest, or behind the knee. Dab wrists together (do not rub). For a longer lasting scent, use after showering while your pores are open.

Are oil-based perfumes better than alcohol-based perfumes?
Yes, they are. Perfume oils have a cleaner scent, typically last 3X longer, and are better for your skin. 

How do I choose the right fragrance for me?
The best way to select the right fragrance for you is to purchase our Fragrance Guide. It contains a single-use sample for each scent and comes with a $25 gift card to put towards the fragrance of your choice.

Why do I love one scent and not others?
Individual genetic make-up (DNA) and number of olfactory receptors attribute to this along with life experiences can change the way you perceive scent. Everyone is different, and the way we react to scents is also unique.

What if I don’t love my fragrance?
We want you to be happy. So, if you don’t love your fragrance, send it back. We’ll happily exchange it for another fragrance or refund your money. Please contact us at hello@oligie.com to make an exchange.

Do you ship internationally?
We ship in the USA and Canada. We will be opening our shipping internationally soon.

Why did you pick destinations as fragrance names?
We love to travel. But more than that, we believe (and research has shown) that through travel, we become more open-minded, smarter, and empathetic human beings. That leads to stronger communities and more thoughtful interactions. We think that’s great, don’t you?

What is the difference between Parfum, EDP, EDT, Aftershave and Cologne etc.?
These descriptions are used to identify the strength or concentration of oil in a fragrance. The concentrations can vary from fragrance to fragrance but here is an average guide. In general, the higher the percentage, the higher the price – but be aware that different concentrations (Perfume, or Eau de Toilette, etc.) may also have different notes in them, and not simply be weaker or stronger.

  • Solid perfume – 20-30% Fragrance
  • Oligie Parfum Oil – 20% Fragrance
  • Perfume – 15-25% Fragrance
  • Eau de Parfum (EDP) – 8-15% Fragrance
  • Eau de Toilette (EDT) – 4-8% Fragrance
  • Cologne (EDC) – 2-4% Fragrance
  • After Shave – 2-4% Fragrance
  • Soap – 2-4% Fragrance
  • Body cream/lotion – 3-4% Fragrance
  • Perfumed candle – 10% Fragrance

Are there some fragrances designed to be worn for daytime or evening?
Our fragrances are quite versatile, but here are some recommendations:

Mallorca - sweet and flirty, perfect for daytime
Giverny - mature, lovely for evening
Tribeca - impressive, great for a night out on the town
Faroe - fresh and invigorating, great any time of day
