Overview

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!

We want our tourists to enjoy their experience and sad that you didn't. I don't understand this comment as our coconut oil is priced from only $18.50. We don't guarantee to be the cheapest but we do offer authentic local products made locally by locals...More

The soaps are made on site here. Beautiful selection of soaps and lotions. Also essential oil type perfumes. I love the frangipani one. The smell lasts for ages as a home use essential oil.

This was just a touristy gift shop that sold fudge and pre-made perfumes that were not particularly good or authentic smelling. Unsure what the hype is about on this one - very skippable.More

So sorry you were disappointed. Fudge is made freshly every day and the perfumes are made locally in our factory in Panama down the road. The perfumes reflect our local flowers like Gardenia, Queen of the Night and Jasmine. Maybe next time our staff can...More
