What is Extrait de Parfum?
Extrait de Parfum tends to be stronger and more long-lasting than Eau de Parfum because the formula contains a higher concentration of oil. The average strength of BARUTI fragrances is between 20-25%. These are extremely long-lasting fragrances with great projection.
Can I try your perfumes before buying a full bottle?
You may purchase one of our Discovery Sets through our site, which we will ship to you within one working day. Alternatively, contact us to find the retailer nearest to you.
Do you have a physical store?
Currently, we do not yet have a brick and mortar store, but we do retail world-wide in niche perfume boutiques and concept stores.
How are your fragrances made?
All of our formulas are created by BARUTI’s founder/perfumer Spyros Drosopoulos and are blended in-house, by hand, in our atelier in Amsterdam. If you are curious, you may take a peek behind the scenes in the video on our Discovery page. You are also welcome to follow us on our Instagram @barutiperfumes, where we regularly post behind the scenes stories and IGTV videos.

Are your fragrances vegan/all natural/green i.o.w.
What do you do to protect the planet?
BARUTI employs both natural, nature identical and man-made materials in its products. Apart from the fact that the notion that non-natural materials are harmful (for humans, or the planet) is at least erroneous, using all-natural materials would be too limiting in a creative sense and even worse utterly unsustainable from an environmental point of view. We do not use animal products that require harming/stressing the animals and as by law (Regulation (EC) N° 1223/2009 on cosmetic products) our products are not tested on animals!
Our packaging is designed to be as compact as possible and we avoid using heavy materials in the packaging (like heavy caps), so as to making shipping our products to our customers as “green” as possible, because they occupy only the necessary space with no unnecessary weight that would lead to extra fuel consumption.
We collaborate with NGO’s to help raise awareness and sponsor their activities to save endangered plant species. Currently we are collaborating with The Red List Project www.theredlistproject.org and the Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam.
Do your fragrances only come in 30ml format?
At the moment, yes. However, watch this space. Follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook and be the first to know about our new releases.
Do I need to register to make a purchase?
No, this is not necessary. But if you do, it will make returning visits to our webshop easier for you since your address information and your previous orders are stored for you. Registration is free and easy to complete during checkout.
How will BARUTI handle my personal information?
BARUTI will not disclose or sell any personal information collected through the site. This information will be used only to ship your order. Please read our Terms & Conditions for more details.
How can I pay for my order?
Depending on where you are located in the world our prices are in Euros or in US Dollars. You can pay with your debit card or with your credit card (Mastercard and Visa). European customers can use either iDeal, Sofort, Bankontact and many other methods of payment.
Is my credit card information safe?
Yes, it is. Payment details are entered over a secure SSL link to PayPal or Mollie who will then authorize payment once the details have been completed and checked. Credit card details entered in the webshop are kept securely by PayPal and Mollie and are not transmitted to BARUTI.
How can I become a stockist?
Please drop us an email with some information about your store at info[at]barutiparfumes.com, and we will connect you with the right member of our team.
Do you offer perfume courses?
Spyros teaches 2-3 times a year, a week-long intensive perfumery class at the Institute for Art and Olfaction www.artandolfaction.com and trains the next generation of perfumers (like Marianna) We also offer intern positions to students to train with us.
