Rarotonga is so lucky to be surrounded by the most beautiful flowers in the world. The scents, starting at sunrise, and never ending have to be smelt to be believed. We make here the most delicate of perfumes, complimentary body cosmetics, candles. Finally our local fruit liqueurs bring flavor as well as scents to the palate.Our Factory in Panama welcomes you and shows you how our various products are made, whilst in the Cook's Corner we have our famous Fudge Factory! Try an ice cream with chocolate fudge sauce!

I had the great idea of doing an order from Perfumes of Rarotonga, but they don't mail perfumes internationally anymore! I love the gardenia perfume, oils and particularly Tiare Maori (Tahitian Gardenia). Such a beautiful scent and not easy to get gardenia perfumes and oils. I think they can still send the oils, but not perfumes. Anyway, my point is,... More

Kia Orana Linda Glad you like our perfumes and so so sorry the mail services won't accept them for shipping! It's so frustrating for us as we have customer's around the world. The perfume oil and all the other products containing the scent are still very much available. Glad you enjoyed the fudge made fresh with premium ingredients to really... More

I went into the factory shop next to the airport (not the one in the city) after reading great reviews of their product. It was my first day in Rarotonga and I ended up getting all of the gifts for my friends and families there. They have a range of perfumes (e.g. frangipani, gardenia, vanilla etc.), body lotions and coconut... More

We've stopped in and bought several little items to take home either as gifts or just for us. Nice and spacious and helpful staff.

This is a fabulous shop that stocks a range of nice souvenirs and also a fudge factory and lolly shop. My kids loved it and they covered tastings.

Once of those places that must be visited while in the city of Avarua. Unfortunately we were full from lunch that we didn't get to try the fudge, but my hubby and I did do some shopping in this cute store. They have beautiful souvenirs and lovely smelling perfumes that capture the tropical vibe.

I visited this lovely little shop that has a variety of souvenirs such as soaps, magnets and jewellery. The staff are friendly and helpful, and tempt you to try their fudge. The fudge is simply divine. I bought some creme brulee fudge - it was delicious. Also tried the chocolate fudge and would have bought some, but didn't want to... More

The fudge at this place is so good. This is always one of our first stops when we return to the island and we always bring a little more back with us!
